Brasil Pictures…Finally

Standard

Hey everybody!  Here are some of the pics from our trip.  Some of the beaches I will show you look so different, but would often be only a few miles apart.  Also, the other thing to notice is my growing belly.  I for sure got bigger while I was there, even though I only gained two pounds. I will post some update pics of the belly soon.  Hope you enjoy the pictures.

 Well, guys… I hope you enjoyed some of the pictures. We have a ton more, but you will have to come visit me or remind me to bring them when I visit you to see them.  Again, thanks for all the prayers while we were traveling! Couldn’t have made it without them.  We love you all! 

p.s. so when i posted the pics, i lost some of them, and instead of reloading them one by one i just inserted the whole gallery.  so if you want to see the pic up close just click on it. sorry, but my internet is slow in hick town.

We’re Back!

Standard

Just wanted to let you all know that we are home.  We got back two Wednesdays ago.  I will be posting pictures soon.  Daniel has them on his computer, so I’m waiting to use his to post from.  We have some amazing pics and some really funny ones.

The trip turned out amazing!  I wound up having a great time once I adjusted. The fruit there is 10x better than here!!  I had the best pineapple I have ever had!!  My mom is there right now, and I’m jealous that she gets to eat it and I don’t!!  I am having withdraws. 

Daniel’s family was so good to us. They took off work to show us around and take us to all the secluded beaches.  It was gorgeous.  I will tell you more about it when I post some pics. 

We are so glad to be home, though.  Josiah is still adjusting to sleeping in a room without his mom and dad and actually getting enough sleep.  Oh! and we are for sure having a Claire!!  I am super excited about having a girl now!  I am already thinking about what color to paint the room.  I am thinking I will get a solid white bedding and change out the pictures in the frames, of course to something more girly.  I think we will put Josiah in the guest room for now.  I will start training him in there in the next couple of months!! I cannot believe I am having another baby!

Talk to you all soon!
