Overdue baby shower pictures..
As promised, I finally got the rest of the baby shower pictures from my mom. These are my favorites.
Iwas 34 weeks exactly here (I'm 36 weeks now!).

Cheyenne was helping to give me the presents.
And Grace was helping me open them lol.
We had our maternity pictures done last weekend, but in all honesty I was none too impressed. We were going to take the pics by the aquarium, but there was some festival, so we decided to move to Coolidge Park instead. Well her car broke down on the way there. I know it wasn't her fault, but we had to stand in the heat forever, so I wasn't looking too hot for pics and Grace was ready to go. She took a bunch of pics, but for some reason she is only giving my 14 of them as an option to buy. I like a couple of them, but then I found out that the prices are not what I thought they were. She had told me $8 for prints, but in reality it's $8 for a sheet of minis or a sheet of wallets. The bigger you want, the more expensive it gets. She was really nice, but I felt sort of jipped. Plus the pictures were not anything amazing. My mom takes just as good of pics.
So my mom and I decided that we would all go back downtown today, and try to get some more pics over at the aquarium where I orginally wanted them. It was going pretty good for about 5 minutes, then this kid walked up like 10 feet away from us, and puked all over the place. EWWW!! My pregnant nose could smell it immediately, and I couldn't handle it, so we decided that we would walk a little further over to get away from the smell.. Umm no such luck because there was freaking puke everywhere. I understand if you get sick you can't help it, but there were also garbage cans everywhere, but he apparently just kept walking and puking on the sidewalk a few inches from the garbage cans. And his parents were doing nothing.. they were just standing there watching him. It definitely ruined my picture experience. We finally got away from it all, but since we were away from the water Grace had no where to play, so she got antsy. We didn't get many pics after that. I guess it is just not meant to be for me to have maternity pictures :(:( Oh well.. I'm still planning on buying a couple from that one lady just to be nice, and hopefully my mom was able to get a few good ones too.
