My Trip to Mesa

Last Wednesday, I took a mini-vacation to Mesa. This was for 2 reasons: First, Jake started finals last week, and had an 8-hour final on Friday that I didn't want to be a distraction for. And second, I'm quitting my job in 2 weeks and they don't pay out my accrued vacation time. I've worked for 6 months straight without taking a day off, I think I deserve something.

Anyway, I spent the end of last week reading books to Mabel, running around with Oliver, watching HGTV, looking for a summer job, and just relaxing.

On Thursday, I decided to go visit my old job in Phoenix. As I was driving down the freeway in Tempe, I noticed that Jake's brother was driving next to me, so I got to see him too. He was a little surprised to see me.

Here is a picture of Oliver Saturday morning after we accidentally let him stay up past his bedtime on Friday night.


p.s. Check back Tuesday to hear our baby gender news!
