gray and fuzzy with a chance of afternoon sun followed by genealogy

Yesterday we had an ultrasound to check and see how big our little girl is getting... of course, the ultrasound technicians tell you next to nothing- "this gray, fuzzy bit is a foot... this one is an arm... see her heart beating?" It was fun to get to see her though and Rob and I agree that, although the tech didn't say anything as she measured, the baby's head looks pretty large to us. We'll have to wait and see what the doctor says on Friday. :)

Then being faced with a beautiful day outside, we decided to make the most of it. We had a nice lunch and visit with our friend Lindsay and she and her husband Kris's brand new baby boy, Joshua, and then took off for Sugarloaf Mountain. (The photo further down this page is from a trip there last Fall.) Rob hiked to the top and back while I camped out on a blanket and enjoyed an apple and the scenery-- I suppose I could've hiked, but then we would've been there for HOURS instead of the brief time it took Rob to do it alone- I'm quite slow these days.

Then in the evening we headed to Frederick, MD for a meeting at the Stake Center. We've both been called as Family History Consultants for our ward here in Westminster and the meeting was a bit of an orientation about what our jobs would be and the hours, etc of the FamilyHistory Center. There were quite a few people there, and not surprisingly we were the youngest people in the room by at least 20 years. My favorite comment of the night was, "YOU're going to be a consultant?!? In your condition!?!?" Honestly, it's not rocket science and it's not manual labor. We both have experience with doing family history research and we are very much looking forward to working with people who are looking for assistance. Babies are portable, right? :)
