Twin Week

This past week my little sister, Amber and her boyfriend, Russ came to visit us. It was twin week because people love to ask us if we're identical twins and this time people even said Eric & Russ looked the same (they really look nothing alike) it was pretty funny.

Here are some pictures of our adventures together:

At Pizza Hut

At Big Peckers in Ocean City

Mini Golfing in Ocean City

At the Batting CagesSpectators

After Church

3 of the brothers: Kye, Andrew & Eric

BBQ Masters

BBQ Eaters At Longhorn's (basically all we did all week was eat)
At the Oriole's Game

So there are our adventures in picture form (we also hit up cold stone, rita's, went shopping & lots of other fun stuff) We loved having our little visitors, we miss you guys!

I had my first mother's day this year! Eric was really cute and got me a mommy-to-be card and a new purse-which I love! He is the best and I am so excited to join the mothers on mother's day because not only does it mean I get to be a mother-but I also get another day with an excuse for presents! haha

Sherry Baby

Last weekend Jacquie's mommy, Sherry, was here visiting her! So I took a little drive up on the weekend to stay with them while Eric was on a fishing trip. Jacquie made us Hawaiian Chicken Friday night which was delicious & we watched Shrek the 3rd which is fairly funny. Saturday morning we were going to go to the farmer's market but it decided to rain so we went to see Made of Honor instead-which we loved. After the movie we went to Robeks to get a smoothie (since Jamba Juice decided to remove itself from all areas near us) and were quite pleased. They tasted a lot like jamba and they also had some really cool/yummy stuffed pretzels there! So overall it was a fun weekend and so good to see Sherry again! Come again soon mommy Sherry!

Baby Belly Photoshoot

My big sister Heather is an amazing photographer. She was just here visiting for a week and on our way home from the zoo on Saturday we stopped at the DC temple and she did a little photoshoot of me as a pregnant lady! Here are the pics!

Sister Visit

My sister, her husband & their adorable two yr old left us on Sunday after being here for a week. Now our house feels very empty and toyless! We had so much fun while they were here!

On Saturday before Ken (Heather's husband) flew out to Florida for a conference, we all took a trip to the park for a picnic. It was such a nice day!

Talia, Ken & Eric playing

Monday we drove to Silver Spring to visit Jacquie! We had lunch at our new favorite joint-California Tortilla, and mostly relaxed at Jacquie's house with a little shopping on the side. I had quite the traumatic experience at the mall with Talia. I was watching her while Heather looked in Gap Kids and she wanted to go on the "alligator" (escalator). It was the kind where only one person can fit on the step. Talia was trying to get on by herself but kept falling back when she tried to step on alone & I had the stroller with our purses in it. It was a disaster because I couldnt hold her up and take the stroller up at the same time. she decided she was going up whether I had the stroller or not so obviously i had to choose Talia over the stroller. We went up the escalator and the stroller stayed at the bottom with our purses. I was freaking out. I grabbed Talia, ran up the escalator and around the mall (of course the down escalator had to be on the other side of the mall) and back down and around to where the stroller was. Luckily it was still there. needless to say I was very out of breath and stressed out by the time i got to it. at least talia is alive and our purses weren't stolen :)

Tuesday we went shopping and got some maternity clothes and baby clothes and got my baby registry done at target. thank goodness for heather being there to help me because i had no idea what to register for! it was so nice to have someone to go maternity shopping with and baby clothes shopping with. yay for a pregnant sister!

Wednesday we went to my ob gyn apt. and i am pleased to announce that i have now gained 17 lbs! This is the only time that i will be pleased about gaining weight. haha After a quick stop by my work to resolve some issues, we ventured on to the outlets in pennsylvania! we didnt find any crib bedding at pottery barn but we did find lots of cute baby clothes!

Thursday we relaxed in the morning and picked up Ken from the airport that night. Then we took them to experience the deliciousness of five guys burgers and fries.

Friday night we went to the Cheesecake Factory (where else? this is becoming a routine in our lives)

Saturday we finally made it to the zoo! We made it there a little later than planned and i think all of the animals were retiring for the day because we didnt see much action. it was still fun though and we got a good workout walking around all day. on our way home we dropped by the dc temple and did a little maternity photoshoot. heather is an amazing photographer, and even though they were done after a sweaty day at the zoo i think we got some good shots! (i'll post some pics of the zoo and the photoshoot when i can get them from heather)

Sunday we said good bye and of course i cried. We'll miss our little visitors! Don't worry, they left behind a pajama shirt, talia's toothbrush and some little girl elastics for us to remember them by. Thanks for visiting us Olsen Family! We love you!
