Another Day at the Beach

After completing our mandatory bit of Weekend Baby Preparation (putting together the high chair, and yes, we know we won't be using it for another 6 months but we want to be prepared)...
We decided that a beautiful Sunday afternoon required a little beach time. That, and the dog just begs us to go to the beach on the weekend. You can see it in her eyes as she stares at us relentlessly... and if she could speak she would say something like, "I know it's the weekend because you're both here and that means that we have time to go play in the ocean!!" How could anyone resist this face??So off we went.
Scott and Hoku found a 12 year old who was eager to play keep-away with them and the soccer ball. I made my way out to the deeper water and got in a little ocean water running while they played. The water was warm and nice with just a few little fun waves- enough to make it interesting for Hoku to try to retrieve the soccer ball anyway.

Here's a picture of me at 34 1/2 weeks. I believe that I have now officially passed that 'cute' pregnant belly stage and entered the 'holy moly look how big that pregnant woman is' stage. It's not funny. Another month of this and I may not be able to hold myself upright. My only choice will be to stay in the water full time where gravity is unable to threaten me.Family Foto...Upon returning home I managed to put away a whole watermelon and Oh. My. Gosh. was it good. I'm over my cheese/butter craving thing now and have moved on to Watermelon. It's officially been named the greatest food on earth.

Your tan little belly looks great! In my hypnobirthing class, I totally imagine myself enjoying your life on the beach, swimming, jumping, etc!

Oh my gosh...you are so cute!! Enjoy the last month, you'll miss the little kicks and punches baby gives you each day :-) The ocean was my friend the last month...that's funny watermelon was my favorite food too! You're almost there and the end result is AMAZING!!! I'll try to give you a call soon and catch up on things...

Aww.. You look cute! I will be hiding underneath huge sweatshirts instead!! Sounds like a nice weekend and the beach looks beautiful!

You look great! I'm with the others about being jealous of the ocean running. Much better than sharing the gym pool with the water aerobocs class.

I ate SO MUCH watermelon the last month of pregnancy, although I didn't ever eat a whole one in one day. Over two days...another story. Then talk about having to pee a bunch after that.
