Starting today, I've reduced my hours at work from 10 hour shifts to 5 hour shifts. Initially and ideally, I was planning on working until the end of May (half a week before my due date on June 4th), but it doesn't look like Pecan likes that idea. I'm guessing CC left a little note in there saying 38 weeks is long enough. It will be nice to not be alternating between sitting at a reception desk and walking around the hospital for 10 hours a day. My job can be fairly demanding, both physically and mentally, especially on a very pregnant body ;) My plan today is to go home, put my feet up, and snuggle with my Baby Ayla (she spent the night at grandma's last night, so I need her kisses today!).

We've done a few race events in the last month or so--Whidbey Island Marathon, Bridge to Brews, and Cinco de Mayo. CC ran in 2 of the 3, my dad ran the Half marathon/10k/10k, and I walked the 5k/8k but skipped Cinco.

We made it down to the Woodburn Tulip Festival, but it was so windy and rainy this year! CC got to do the egg hunt and we took a few pictures around the gardens by the gift shop, but didn't make it out to the tulip fields (which were planted pretty far away this year--they rotate the fields).
|Ooh, windy! And that's her 'rawr' face!|
