I know you’ve been waiting for this all year long.  Okay, maybe not, but I have. And then it was here!

We headed to our 28th week appointment with kids in tow – a leap of serious faith, let me tell you! – heard the babe thumping away just like we heard Max 9 years ago and then followed it up the same way we did then with a trip into the canyon.

GORGEOUS. Possibly the best colors and weather we’ve ever had for family photos.

And, as a result of the lovely day, these might be the best photos yet.
