Out with the old, in with the new!

I got a new car! We said goodbye to my faithful 1998 Buick Century after 11 years of service (9 years with me, 2 with my mom).
Here's a final shot with her:

And here's my new CR-V! It's AWESOME. So exciting! And it smells new! And the power locks work, and so does the remote keyless entry. And all four windows open. Such luxury.

Fall fun

(This is from Columbus Day weekend, but I'm just posting it now)
We had a fantastic Columbus Day weekend...the weather was beautiful and we spent a lot of time outside. We went apple picking, and we also explored Rocky Narrows, a hiking trail park not far from our house. We can't believe how close it is to our house and we'd never heard about it before!

Idyllic fall weekend in New England

With the Columbus Day holiday today, we had a lovely three-day weekend. And the weather cooperated so we had three sunny but crisp (60-70 degree) days! We went apple picking, we played frisbee golf, we grilled with friends, and we went for a walk/hike. It was fantastic. We did take some pictures, but I haven't loaded them on the computer yet.

Now back to the not-so-idyllic task of organizing the basement. Wish us luck! (oh, and wish the Red Sox luck too!)

22 weeks--Five months!

Originally uploaded by kjourdan

Believe it or not, I'm five months along! There's definitely a belly there, even though it's nothing super huge. The baby is moving around a lot, which I like because I know things must be going well in there. I'm still feeling good,so we're just coasting through this nice time.
Not so nice, of course, is the basement-cleaning project that we need to start as we start to prepare the second bedroom to become the nursery.
