Visit With The Hatch's!

This past weekend we had such a fun visit from the Hatch Family! Kristin, Tay and Jordan had spent the last two weeks in Gunnison, CO with the family and before they headed back to Wyoming, they got to come down to Durango and visit! Josh flew into Durango around 9am and they got to spend all day Saturday with us and left Sunday morning. Even though it was a short visit it was so fun to have them here and to finally get to meet sweet miss Layla!

Presten and I took the kids on a Rzr ride through the forest. I think that was the first time they had been on one and I think they enjoyed it! After the ride we went to Serious Texas for lunch (Josh's fav place in durango!) After lunch we headed to the train station to show Jordan all the trains. We checked out the train museum and the kids had a blast! After the train station we got to go to the park! We spent all day at the park and had a blast! It was a perfect day to be outside!

Pres and Kristin love to play ball! It was so fun to watch them, especially since I have no hand eye coordination like these two do ha

Sweet Taylin with here baby Sister Layla! Cute girls! 
After the park we went to dinner at Christina's and then went home and watched Zookeeper. 
The next day they headed up to Colorado Springs to take the kids to the real zoo. We were sad to see them go, but so glad they got to visit. It was just a bummer that they didn't get to meet Baby D when they were here. We love them and miss them! Wyoming is too far away sometimes!

39 Weeks....

So what's the latest on me and Baby D? Well I might as well update you as there is still no baby and I have time on my hands! I have gone my whole pregnancy as probably the luckiest preggo ever! The only sickness I have felt this entire time was just in the beginning, the first trimester. Since then I have been able to exactly what I want when I want to. I have had no weird cravings. Although I still enjoy the Lemon-Lime Gatorade and a fan of smoothies for sure. I walk three days a week with my friend Makena who is due in Sept. It's been nice to have someone that's going through the same thing you are! Makes everything that much more exciting! It's also nice to walk to keep ourselves in shape. I have gained a total of 28 lbs my entire pregnancy which is pretty dang good and I'm hoping that it will be easy to work off after the baby comes. The baby is as healthy as ever. Every doctor appt. each doctor comments on how much the baby moves and how STRONG the baby's heartbeat is. It makes me happy and gives me such great relief to know that I have one extremely healthy baby inside! The doctors informed me that the baby could come any time and I am hoping that it's sooner than later! We shall see what time frame Baby D is on though ha I have the hospital bag packed, I have the diaper bag packed, the baby carrier is in the car, the baby room is all set up, organized and decorated, all I need now is the baby! I'm getting very ancy needless to say. I can't wait to find out if we have a mini presten or a mini me. Stay tuned to the blog to find out what Baby D is!!!! :D

Me at 39 weeks...Baby looks like they wanna come out the belly button

So this week I came home and there was a giant box on the porch addressed to Baby D. I didn't know what it was but was very excited to open it. Well what was inside was the best surprise EVER!!!! Inside was a GIANT life size Giraffe! Talk about the cutest thing ever! I almost did a happy dance but uh when I went to jump up and down and dance I felt like that wasn't the best idea with how large the belly is and all. It could have been quite the sight, seeing a 9 month preggo happy dance! ha


The giraffe came from John & Michelle Gilleland and it's the Cutest thing in the whole world! I'm absolutely in love! Thank you Gilleland's! Baby D is going to be a HUGE fan! I just know it! Well that's all for now, hopefully the next post will be baby pics ;)

Utah Baby Shower!!!

So my family loves me and absolutely spoils me! My Aunt Mori who lives in California wanted to throw me a baby shower and flew into Utah and put one together on Aug 3rd! I felt so loved! Most of my family Utah were able to come and for me to see them. I was so grateful to have everyone there and for all the love and support that they have given me. They decorated the townhome and everything was SO adorable! I honestly can't thank My Mom, Aunt Mori, Aunt Katrina, Tia Sonia, Tia Beatrice and sister Tianna for all the hard work and effort they put into decorating and putting everything together for me. I really am so blessed! Here are some fun pics to enjoy! Also big thanks to Tianna for all the pics! She's a superstar! The theme was ready to pop!

A HUGE thank you to EVERYONE for coming to the shower, for helping and just for all the support and love you have all given me throughout this pregnancy!
