21 weeks ( I think some of the growth this week can be attributed to all the great food we ate in San Francisco)
And lastly today at 27 weeks which is also exactly 6 months for me!!! I have been feeling great, but my mom told me I really must be pregnant when I told her that I considered putting a fried egg on my tuna fish sandwich the other day ( I just thought about it, I didn't do it), but honestly I still don't think it sounds that bad. Some other things I have been craving lately include: strawberries, doritos, and smoothies. So far I feel like I have been really lucky in my pregnancy, other than a few headaches at the beginning, I can count on one hand the number of days I have been sick and still have fingers to spare. I still feel like I have a long time to go till our little girl is here, but we have to be getting closer, right???
So I know this post is a little late, but it was too funny not to share. We had a really fun Easter where we decorated cookies and had a super yummy ham dinner with Megan and Andrew.
Since we did the cookies the night before Easter, Carson was at work and did not get to participate. I was texting him before we started though, and he requested that I make a cookie for him that said " Carson Loves Lindsay Most." I told him no way, and I instead made the cookie you see below that says, "Lindsay Loves Carson Most." Then I took a picture of the cookie and sent it to Carson. He said that he was going to take a permanent marker and change it when he got there. I told him he would have to eat it then.
So then when Carson joined us after he got off work I told him to go in the kitchen and see his cookie. Well he went in the kitchen and stayed in there for a long time. We could only imagine what he was doing, (I still had the image of a permanent marker on frosting in my head}. After a long time he came back with the masterpiece you see below.
Quite creative, and probably more edible than ink from a permanent marker.
For spring break Carson and I headed to San Francisco with Megan and Andrew for a few days. It was a great trip, we did so many fun things, saw so many cool sites, and ate soooo much good food. The millions of pictures below are the big
highlights of the trip
Eating yummy burgers in San Jose
Visiting the Winchester Mystery Mansion
This house was purchased by Sarah Winchester, the widow of William Winchester. She thought she was being haunted and was told that she could keep the spirits at bay if she built a house and never finished it. This led the the mystery mansion of staircases that go straight to ceilings, doors that go nowhere, and many other architectural oddities.
We had a fun time touring the mansion. We stayed near the back of the group so Carson was free to explore all the doors and cupboards, he even found a trap door in the floor.
Even though it was a little chilly, we had to stop at the beach for a bit
Carson thought it would be fun to bury my legs in the sand, and then a random dog came to visit while I was immobile
Hiking in the Muir Woods
Redwood trees are so cool
The bakery at pier 39 really made me want to try making shapes with my bread
We had a great time learning about the history of Alcatraz with the audio tour. We were particularly fascinated by the break out attempts and successes
We also had a great lunch in China town. I was pretty surprised at how similar some of the foods were to real food from China
We had a ton of fun at the Musee Mecanique
The best part was a heated battle of hockey that ended in overtime with Carson and I as the victors
He sure is cute
One of our favorite places was the Mirror Maze (yes we drove for hours and paid $5.00 a person to have the most fun at the mirror maze)
Once we stepped inside the maze we realized how confusing it really was. Since we had the whole place to ourselves we decided to play tag, a much harder task than it sounds. At one point I thought I was sneaking up on Carson only to turn a corner and tag/punch myself in a mirror. The best part was watching Megan running at me when she totally ran into herself and bounced off her own image onto the floor. There were actually many times that Megan and I were on the floor because we were laughing so hard.
The sea lions!! We kept hitting the pier at night so we could barely see them, but I kept insisting that we had to see them during the day, it wasn't until our last day there that we managed to see them in the daytime.

Some other highlights of the trip include:
Walking hours to see Japanese town in San Jose when it really was not worth seeing at all
Our super smelly hotel room in San Francisco. The carpets had been cleaned and never dried leading to a very musty smell that the nose never adjusted to, luckily we got to move rooms after the first night
Hitting Ghirardelli Square for some chocolate
Eating in Little Italy with a never ending supply of bread
Seeing the Golden Gate Bridge
The yummy scone place we stopped for breakfast on our last day
And the best part... not having to worry about school or work for a few days and getting to spend time with each other
