Lesson 164: a day at the dog show

 These pictures are all out of order....
This past weekend my mom and I spent the day up in Seattle at the Kennel Club Dog Show.
We saw the disc dog demonstration.
My all time favorite demonstration was the duck herding dogs. Oh my goodness, there is nothing as cute as a border collie or Australian shepherd herding around three little ducks. They had to weave the ducks through the cones, over a little bridge and eventually into a pen. Imagine Babe with ducks instead of sheep.
That night Tyler and I went to Maggianos in Bellevue. It was really amazing food and so much fun to go on a date with my husband. :) 
 The dog show was at the CenturyLink Field Event center.
Another demonstration was the dancing dogs. This is a rescue hairless mix dog wearing a Hawaiian shirt. Yes I think dog dancing is ridiculous and yes I stayed to watch the entire thing. Come on, it's dogs.  
Another picture of duck herding! 
 There was also agility going on the entire time.
Aww so cute!!!
We made a point to see the pug dog competition of course. Did you know they remove the whiskers from the show pugs? I guess beauty really is pain, yikes.  
What a pug apparently SHOULD look like :)

Lesson 163: Third Trimester

At the request of my sister I took a pregnancy picture to send to her. She asked me for one a couple weeks ago but I am the worst at remembering to do things. This is the reason it was taken in line at a Walmart.

Yesterday marked the beginning of the THIRD TRIMESTER whoot whoot! There is something to be said about the 3rd trimester. There is a lot less guilt. In my second trimester I worried about gaining too much weight, about my rings not fitting, and about how no matter what happens it will only get worse because this it only the 2nd trimester! Now that I am in the last leg I feel much less pressure to worry about things because hey, I'm in my last trimester :) (P.S. yes the rings are off. I made it official yesterday)

And Tyler felt the baby kick for the first time yesterday. He has been wanting to for a while to the point where he will push really hard on my belly and I will have to remind him that I am still attached to my stomach and THAT HURTS! hahaha.
