A trip to the beach

Ok. . . so in my last post I wrote about how I was sad to be leaving the "baby" stage with Maia.  There are so many things that I LOVE about the baby stage.  I did a good job at processing the "loss" and embracing the new stages awaiting.  I was truly content and thankful for where things were at.

. . . and then . . .

I got sick . . . and it lasted a long time.  And I was so very tired.  And I thought we just needed to take a vacation so that I could get back to feeling like myself again.  We were able to squeeze in a day at the water park with the girls - but I still felt so very tired.

Our friends the Jacksons graciously took our kids for a day so that Matt and I could take a day trip to the beach.  It was a beautiful day!  Matt had me pose for all kids of fun photos.

The promenade had all these little staircases that went straight down to the water.

Doesn't that water look glorious?  Oh why didn't we bring our swimsuits???

We even looked into renting a scooter for an hour.  
But they rent them by the day and that was way out of our price range.

Just wish Matt was in this photo with me.

As we were walking back to our car Matt spotted this restaurant sign.  
He insisted that I pose by it "just in case" we were ever to get pregnant again.  
I just wanted to get back to the car.
It was hot. My feet were tired from all our walking.
 And we already had two miracle babies!  There's no way we could have a third!!  

Two weeks and three pregnancy tests later we learned why I'd been feeling so very tired for so long.

Baby #3 arrives at the end of next May.

Cannot wait!! :D
I think she will arrive on May 21st. All the cool kids are born on that day. ;) ...I can tell we will get along well.

Congratulations on your third baby! I'm glad you and your hubby had some alone time at the beach. These are beautiful photos you have here. This made me want to take my lovely wife to a beach escape soon.
