I'm 35 weeks and counting down the weeks, days, and moments until Adeline's arrival. That's right, Alex and I have decided to name our lil daughter Adeline. Sometimes it seems like her arrival is so far away and other days it feels fast approaching.
We have pretty much everything ready for Adeline. Our classes are almost done, nursery complete, laundry clean, and the diapers are ready for their duty. While the material stuff is all ready to go, I wonder how ready Alex and I will be. As much as you read and learn, how can you truly prepare for a change like this? I often ponder what will be our struggles? Is it possible to prepare anymore? I am thankful for a best friend like Alex to begin this journey with and I eagerly await seeing him hold our daughter in his arms.
So for now we wait. We shall see if she is an early bird, right on time, or a late arrival. We'll keep you posted =)

My family also got out to a local apple orchard for a lovely fall morning. Appleberry Farm had some delicious apples, cider, and doughnuts. I think this will have to become a family tradition =)
Aunt Joge and Kate set off to fill their bags

After a 20 hour car ride, we made it out to Montana, where we stayed at Wilderness Edge Resort. Our cabin, Aspen, had a kitchen, living room, dining room, and 4 bedrooms. Luckily it had 2 bathrooms as well.
It was a superb trip filled with hikes, rest, knitting, campfires, delicious meals, site seeing, games, puzzles, and lots of laughter. One thing missing was our brother-in-law Jon who is currently over in Iraq. We all wished he was there with us!
Alex, Brad, Tyler, and Rachel took a side trip to Idaho for two of the days to hike up Mt. Borah. It was a rough climb, but they survived. It was Tyler and Alex's first highpoint and Brad's 45th highpoint. Mom, Joge, Steph, the kiddos, and I were very excited for their return!
Here are a few shots from the trip....
