1/2 Marathon here we come!

The Gothenburg Half Marathon is HUGE. And each year it gets bigger and bigger. This year, there are 50,000 people registered! Chris has been training pretty well and pretty regularly, but since there's only a couple weeks left (in the middle of May), last Saturday Chris decided he wanted to run the route just to get a feel of it.

I'm not sure if his decision to bring Samuel along in the stroller was more for my sake, or simply because he liked the idea of the challenge, but we packed Samuel in the stroller complete with apples, books and drinks and Chris with is backpack and Sofia and I dropped them off at the starting point and the two of them set off. I was a little skeptical that Samuel would sit still that long (and that Chris would have the energy to push him the entire way!), but the run ended up being great for both of them. Chris said, they pretty much talked the entire time...Samuel would point things out and ask questions, and it ended up being a great bonding moment. I have to say I'm thoroughly impressed! :)

Our fam this past month.

Two Week Countdown

Wow, I can't believe we're already so close to the end. This pregnancy has just zoomed by and yet at the same time, it seems like I've been pregnant FOREVER! Nine months is a long time. And really, I guess it still could be another 5 weeks until this little girl enters this world (they let you go 3 weeks over before inducing you here!!!). But, hopefully not, cause Grandma's coming out the 18th! I'm feeling great though. A bit tired during the day and a bit heavy during the evenings, but for the most part, I feel pretty good. Anyway, just thought I'd share this picture in all my pregnancy glory! (I think this pregnancy more than the other two, I'm pretty ready to get rid of my big tummy and extra layers of fat I've accumulated).
