This past weekend was my grandfather's 90th birthday. My parents and I drove out to Washington state in order to celebrate with Grandpa. There was a huge party on his birthday and a great number of family and friends came down for the party. There was amazing food, a stellar video (good job Dad), and lots of family. Overall, it was a great gathering. Happy Birthday Grandpa and congratulations on 90 wonderful years.
One guy in our group liked to jump his Jeep. I personally think that he's crazy.
The Jeep/Truck group.
Chris and Brett driving the Jeep at the top of a dune.
Yesterday, Chris, Brett, Miller Light (it had no choice), and I went sand dune jeeping in Western Utah. None of us had ever been sand dune jeeping before and for the most part we really enjoyed it. The parts that we didn't enjoy were waiting around while others had to fix their vehicles or waiting for lost people. Chris and Brett had fun driving around the rims of the sand dunes and I enjoyed watching from a safe distance while taking pictures. The sand dunes were very tricky because when you were going up them, you had to push the Jeep as fast as it could go to keep momentum, but you were never quite sure what the top of the dune looked like. We got surprised (I freaked out) a couple of times but luckily nothing bad (like rolling the jeep) happened. By the end, we were very glad that we went, but we were very tired and happy to be back on straight pavement again.
Well, I think that i'm finally starting to feel when Miller Light moves. I picked it up for the first time yesterday and to be honest, I wasn't quite sure that it was baby moving at all. It mostly felt like some bubbles were moving strangely on one side of my baby bump. After I felt it, I stood still for a moment thinking, is that Miller Light or what? My doctor had said that the baby's movements could feel like bubbles so, I'm sure thats what my strange sensation was. I was kind of disappointed that I couldn't tell it was Miller Light until I sat and thought about it. I was hoping to feel an amazing mothering feeling when I first felt my baby move, instead of confusion. Oh well, maybe the motherly feelings and excitement will come as I can feel it move more and more. Oh, by the way, three more weeks until we can find out what Miller Light is!! :) Not that I'm counting down or anything...
