Out for a stroll

Pete, the dogs, and I went for a stroll on Sunday. It was a gorgeous day, and I hadn't been walking for a while (the last time was during our camping trip). I had a great time, although I really got tired about 2/3 of the way into the walk. Baby Jack was pressing on my bladder, I was tired, and my legs were itching like mad—ever get that weird itchiness? It happens to me after I shave sometimes, especially when I used to go running (not doing that now, lol!).

Anyhow, I think I was a bit whiny, and Pete felt bad because I was uncomfortable. (Him: "You're tired? Really?" Me: "Uh, yeah! I'm lugging around an extra 30 pounds here!") But it was cute because we ran into some of his friends, and he was proudly showing off my big belly and telling everyone how happy he was to have his son on the way. So it was worth any discomfort to me to be out in the sunshine with my hubby and dogs, enjoying the vivid colors and warm sun, and stretching my (achy) legs a bit.

Haven't visited your blog for ages - been a bad blogger recently/frantically busy. Great to hear what you've been up to and congrats on the pregnancy!

too funny, i (when i was pregnant) remember i was taking a college class and trying to finish it before i had my son. but...the building i had to trudge up to, and yes i say "up" was way away from the parking lot and up very steep steps. i just about died every time i had to get up there, i was about 8 months pregnant at the time and panting. the extra weight is a killer sometimes! good excersise though. looked like you guys had a beautiful fall day to walk. :)
