Jared and I were talking a while back and I had mentioned that I had never been to Washington D.C. and would love to go sometime. Now that we live in North Carolina, Washington D.C. is only four hours away so it is easily doable for a weekend getaway, so Jared and I decided to do just that for an early anniversary celebration. We had an amazing time and we really lucked out when it came to tourists. We hardly waited in any lines, if any, and were able to go to all of the museums, memorials, gardens, and even the zoo without any problems. Our legs were definitely sore from all the walking but it was totally worth it!! We were pretty busy though, so we weren't able to have dinner with Obama and his family. Maybe next time...
That belly is definitely growing, which is a great thing since the boys are growing in there too! It is kind of an awkward feeling though to not be able to fit into clothes, sleep how you would normally sleep, and use the bathroom a zillion times a day. It is true what they say though, the second trimester is wonderful compared to the first!! I have not had any morning sickness this trimester and eventhough I still enjoy my daily naps and early bedtimes I feel like I have a lot more energy than I did in the first trimester. I am about 19 weeks now, which means that we are halfway there (I am due to deliver at 38 weeks instead of 40)!! It is kind of crazy to think that our family of two and a half (Nestle) is about to become a family of four and half in just a few months. It's going to be a crazy ride but what a blessing it truly is. This is a picture from when I was 16 weeks and that belly has grown a lot since then. I'll update some more current pictures on here soon!

We had a great week celebrating Halloween with some friends by carving pumpkins and then having our own trick or treaters come by. Our pumpkin didn't turn out quite as scary as it looked like it would be on the page, but we thought that it looked pretty cute!
Nestle was not a huge fan of her costume for the second year in a row...she wound up retiring it by the end of the night and wearing a more fashionable Halloween bandana instead.
We can't wait until next Halloween when we get to dress up those cute little boys of ours!!!
