This past weekend we went on a trip to the Oregon Coast. We brought the dogs with us also, of course. The dogs both loved it and experienced neurotic nervousness as well. Diesel would get nervous whenever we were in the car for longer than five minutes. You could practically hear him thinking "Are we going somewhere fun or are we going somewhere bad?" Kahlua was nervous about the actual ocean and also about the waterfall. So I have a billion pictures so I will post some and then I will comment and post more. There was walking in forests, walking to waterfalls, walking near rivers, walking to the ocean. Oh we also saw a giant herd of elk! I did not get a picture of the elk as we drove by them. It was my first time seeing elk in the wild and I wasn't sure what I was seeing at first. From far off I first said to Sean "Are those cows?" Then as we got closer. "No those aren't cows. Is that a bunch of deer?" And then "No. Those aren't deer. What are those? Are those elk???" Sean says "I think they are reindeer." And then we notice all the road signs that say "Watch for elk" and "Elk crossing" so I guess they were elk after all. Oh and for those who don't know yet or have forgotten. I'm pregnant. Not fat or drinking too much beer but pregnant. More precisely I am over 22 weeks pregnant and apparently my baby is now the size of a coconut and approximately 11 inches. I feel less bad about my giantness when I take into account how huge the little spawn is getting. Diesel liked the waterfall. He thought "oh giant drinking fountain. yay!" Kahlua was terrified of the waterfall. The river, however, was not scary to Kahlua. She really wanted to jump that barrier and go check it out. We did not let her. Sean forced Kahlua to walk out to the ocean with him and Diesel. She was not pleased about it but Diesel was super excited about the ocean. And there I am with the dogs and Kahlua is trying to inch her way away from the ocean while Diesel tries go more towards it. Just me below showing off my pregnant belly. The only picture that Sean and I got together due to the kindness of a passing stranger. And me and my giant belly again. Watch the comments for more pictures. More waterfall, more ocean, more river, more dogs, more pregnant belly.
