The Preggie Belly at Last!

I know many of you have been waiting for this, so wait no more. Almost six months pregnant and this is all I have to show for it (smile)! The doc did say that our baby ways over a pound already and is growing ahead of schedule! Posted by Picasa

23 Week Ultrasound

The smile on my face is because we got to see our baby's face today for the first time! It was amazing. Fingers and toes and the sonographer says, "Long femurs!" Maybe a little basketball player is in there (smile)! We took video of the ultrasound and were snapping photos left and right. On our way out we saw a sign saying the very thing we were doing was prohibited (glad we didn't see that on our way in! Posted by Picasa

The infamous Piha Beach

Piha is known for its dangerous surfing. They even do a show here called, "Piha Rescue." I'm hoping Mike will choose to surf on the East coast where the waves are a bit calmer. Doesn't look too intimidating in this photo, though, does it! These surfers are out of their gourd condsidering how cold the water must have been! Posted by Picasa

Mike and Kim's Second Honeymoon!

We really have felt like we're on our honeymoon again. I'm even wearing the jacket Mike got me in Paris when we were on our first one! Posted by Picasa

Shadow Shot

Can't quite tell I'm pregnant in this shot, but we liked it anyway. Posted by Picasa

Sunset at Karekare

Its middle of winter here and we had a beautiful sunny day, so we had to run out to the beach for a little adventure. Its about an hour or so from our place in Grafton. The sand is black. A little waterfall turns into the almost river behind us and pours into the ocean. Posted by Picasa

Black Sand of Karekare

Long exposure captured the sand of Karekare blowing low to the ground. It was freikin' freezing. Posted by Picasa

top of mt. eden

Kim and I took this photo last sun. from the top of mt. eden - it's a beautiful place ~1mile from our apt. (1.6km). It's an extinct volcanic mount which forms the highest point in the city of Auckland. The view is awesome - other mounts across the cityscape jut into the air like oases of green grass in a not-so-desolate desert of lower concentrations of green grass.
It might be nice to express our thoughts and share our experiences in this kind of format...I mostly expect this to benefit Kim and I by articulating our lives a bit more and allowing our experiences to have more impact on us as we recount them. ta da.
