Almost but not Quite

Hello there! We've been enjoying beautiful spring-like weather recently so Chris and I have been trying to get out a little bit.  Last Friday we took a drive due west to see the ocean.  We went to Point Reyes because there is a old light house there and also the possibility of spotting a whale or two.

First I have to prepare myself for the trip...which altogether took a little less than 2 hours.  I am prone to car sickness, I had it bad when I was little and being pregnant it's horrible.  So we first ate lunch to fill my belly and then I had packed a lunch bag full of crackers, sour candy, and a fizzy drink. During the windy drive I was getting sick and I was already full and my husband was saying "keep eating" and we were laughing because I looked pathetic trying to eat from my little pack around my neck.  Anyways we got there.

 When we got there I realized that we had to walk a half a mile to get to the lighthouse....up hill.  Super lame! So we or I waddled on at a snails pace and my husband kindly walked with me and stopped with me when I needed it.  And I didn't complain...just kidding I complained the whole time.  Then we finally got to the light house information center...and I saw people passing me gasping for breath and saying "water!"  I looked down the path and saw the light house with about a billion stairs in between.  I looked at my husband and said "nope, not doing it!" 

The walk was enough for me.  Then we read the warning sign and it said that the decent and assent of the stairs like walking up and down a 30 story building.  That was it.  So we look for whales instead.  There were none.  But oddly enough the coast line is full of dairies so we saw a bunch of Happy California Cows.



  1. Haha! That was an interesting post... I laughed out loud about the not complaining part! And you look pregnant!! I love it, I can't wait to see you!! I miss you SO much! I heard you were coming into town for the womens breakfast and JBF so hopefully I will see you then... I can't really go to JBF becuase I can't get a pass for the early admission, but I am still working on it! LOVE YOU!
