35 weeks and my Birthday!!

Wow, 35 weeks- the weeks are really flying by now, and I like it! I hope they don't go this fast after Brett gets here, but I'm sure they will :(.  This weekend was awesome. I took off Friday and we had Monday off for Labor day ( also my 27th Bday!) so I had a 4 day weekend!!
I managed to get a lot done, had some fun with friends and actually got some sleep!!

My birthday and our friend Chris' birthday are 1 day apart so we decided to celebrate together with our friends by "Shooting the Hooch" over the weekend! I was a little nervous taking to the tube at 35 weeks pregnant but, I knew that laying there, floating at a whopping 1 mile per hour would be pretty safe..and it was! The weather was GORGEOUS- 85 and not a cloud in sight. Its a good thing there were no clouds because the water was FREEZING!! Thankfully, I had a nice fat raft that kept out of the water.  My poor husband, however, chose to use a raft with a mesh bottom....he literally had blue lips at the half-way point! But, my brother generously offered Josh stole my brothers raft and managed to warm up by the end of the 3 mile float. ;) 

After tubing, we had everyone over to our house for a cookout. Everyone was pretty worn out from tubing and the night ended by 11 so I was happy! 

On Monday I rested most of the day (It was my Bday!) but I did get a lot of baby B's stuff washed and folded! I also exchanged some stuff at target and was able to get the lamb swing for only $30! It was on sale and I had $90 worth of returns :)
We ended my Bday with a family dinner at our house! I have to mention that my hisband worled very hard this weekend- he cleaned the house Monday morning after our friend cookout and then worked in the yard all day, cutting grass and re-doing the flower beds in our front yard. He cooked the food both nights ion the grill and cleaned up afterward! I tried to help  a little, but I get tired very quicky! Im very lucky to have such a wonderful, helpful husband! :)
