We made it!
I feel like it's been a very long time since March has been a full fledged springtime month in Pittsburgh.
Feather and Eliot came over this week and we had a real picnic and the kids spent hours playing in the dying snow.
Kurt and I met with the man who is going to be officiating our wedding ceremony, and we've decided on Mt Washington as a location.
Cell phone picture from last weekend.
We took Scout up on the mountain via the incline, and she loved it. She keeps asking if we can ride the roller coaster again.
There are so many reasons why the top of a mountain overlooking the city is the perfect place to get married, but mostly, think of how gorgeous the pictures will be! We don't have to worry about lighting or decorating. We'll be outside, on the top of the world on a sunny, early summer day.
The only think I'll have to be concerned about is finding a reasonable dress for an 8 month pregnant lady. It's a little over 2 months away, but I can't bring myself to commit to a dress because I feel like I'm going to get so much bigger before then. It's crazy that our wedding is in 2 months, and then we have a baby coming a few weeks after that.
Anyway, Scouty's been a little city traveler, lately. On Saturday, she and daddy took a train downtown to watch the St. Patty's Day Parade.
I was a little nervous about them making such a big trip by themselves, and kept having images of drunk St. Patrick's Day-ers sweeping Scouty up on to their shoulders and carrying her away from Kurt or something. I was up early and packed a back of snacks and lectured Kurt about the importance of hand sanitizer on public transportation and gave him a run down of the necessity of regular potty breaks. What do you know, they made it there and back safely and nobody died of starvation, germ inhalation or peed themselves.
Something that helped with my nervousness was that I went to the spa to collect my Valentine's Day present and got a 90 minute pregnancy massage. I left feeling like I had just had a few margaritas or something. It was AMAZING.
