Maternity Pictures

We took our maternity pictures at 33 weeks! We went up Big Cottowood Canyon and couldn't believe it was snowing when we got up there! We braved the cold took our pictures anyway though. My sister Anna Richey took our photos as usual. She took our engagements two years ago almost to the day, up this same canyon! It's crazy that we're back up here two years later taking our maternity pictures! Connor is such a good sport... we only had to bribe him a little bit to take these pictures haha! P.S I got a lot of questions on my dress and will put details below if you're interested. 

Stoked to become parents with this guy! Connor is the absolute best guy and I can't wait to see him become a dad. He has been my saving grace this whole pregnancy, i'm so lucky to have married him! 
My sisters/the crew, Anna and Jenni! My other sister Katie lives in Oregon or she would have been with us too. She is pregnant with a girl as well and due 5 days after me! 

A lot of people asked where I got my dress and I actually got it from a Chinese website Ali Express. I found one that I like similar to it but it wasnt exactly what i was looking for. I finally found this one on Ali Express (which Chinese websites are a hit or miss) and took a chance on it. I ordered two sizes up because Chinese websites run small anyway and I needed it to be a maternity dress and it orginally isn't. But it was so cheap and actually ended up to be better than I expected. Also, the dress came in a week and a half which is fast shipping coming from china! It came with an underslip already but I bought a different slip from Down East for more coverage.

Connor served his mission in Spokane/Coeur D'Alene area so we love to go visit whenever we can. My sister also lives only a few hours from there so we love to make family trips out of it too!

Spokane falls!

Because when you get a balloon from Red Robin, you can't let it go!
How cute are these blocks?!
Sunsets are amazing lets be honest! 
The handle to the wagon is a slide and I went on it almost as many times as the kids did...
This is normal.
Connor loves pictures, can't you tell?!

Let Freedom Ring 2017

For the 4th of July we usually go to Wyoming every year, but this year we didn't go because we went to Bear Lake for a family reunion the day after the 4th. We decided to bike the trail to Bridal Veil Falls with my sister Jenni, my brother Jason, Connor and I. It was busy but fun! When we loaded up the bikes I saw the cute old fashion red bike we had and I was set on having that bike because it looked festive for the 4th of July. I haven't done much exercise since I have been pregnant because I have felt sick and my body has not been up for it. I quickly regretted picking the cute red bike instead of the mountain bike because the way back was a little inclined! (i'm talking SLIGHT incline). I had to switch Connor bikes because I was going too slow and my legs were burning! Not my proudest moment haha.

We saw an ice cream truck and obviously couldn't pass that up- I mean how often do you see those!  I also regretted eating that tweety bird ice cream when I found myself throwing it up in the parking lot 20 minutes after eating it. That may be TMI but oh well! 

We ended the day with a BBQ at Connors house and fireworks. Connor loves fireworks, its absolutely hilarious how into he gets. So we did have a good fire work show to end the night.
this picture pretty much sums up our life.
