I know, I know..I had just about given up on myself ever updating this blog.  I have thought about it often but have just not taken the time to do it.  So lets see a recap of the last (almost) four months.

February - May 

We completed our DC adventure on February 12th.  After packing up we drove south to the Carolinas to spend a week with family.  We had a wonderful time in Charlotte, North Augusta and Edisto Island.  Jimmy even fit a quick guys golf weekend to Florida in before we jumped on a plane and headed home to Portland.

Shortly after arriving home we were overjoyed to find out that baby #2 in on the way.  We expect the arrival sometime around Halloween.  We will hopefully find out boy or girl on June 2nd.  I will post an update.

Other than that we have been busy house hunting and thankful for our comfy temporary housing at mom & dad's house.  We put an offer in on a house about a month ago but found out it is a short sale.  So we have been playing the waiting game waiting for the bank gods to see it our way and just say yes.  If not, we will be back on the hunt.

Jimmy, Audrey and I ran away for a quick vacation to San Diego and Los Angeles a couple of weeks ago.  We were finally able to introduce Audrey to her great-grandma and Papaw (Jimmy's grandparents) and enjoyed visiting with old friends.  The weather was beautiful and we had a great time hitting all our old favorite spots.  We even had our morning coffee and The Coffee Bean and Tea House in Beverly Hills.  We used to go there and just people watch and listen to the crazy conversations.  This trip didn't disappoint.  Too much fun.

All in all it is wonderful to be back in Portland and enjoying our friends and family.  

Here are some pictures of our adventures!
