THE LAST Post- prebaby!! Yes, OCD girl is caught up!

I'll end on a picture of my beautiful daughter! Next time you hear from the Palmer fam, we will be plus one!! A family of 5! I cannot wait! I DO still hope it's a girl, since the nursery is done and clothes washed. Please pray for the delivery, for a healthy baby, and for me. I always have some crazy things happen after I give birth. And pray we can adjust halfway normally! Love to all of you blog readers! I'm out....
Dare I show this picture of me? Please don't post this somewhere super embarrassing! I do have proof that I am hanging out with my kids! In fact, about 2 days a week I take them to the pool all by myself, thank you very much! And I endure all the stares from people, who are really thinking, "Lady, you are crazy! Please don't let your water break here at the pool!"

Can't beat the summer! Swimming, ice cream, not so many crazy TV shows to watch! Being outside with the fam is so fun!
More pool time at the gym with Daddy! Saturdays are a blast because Josh can come with us to the pool! Brady finally got brave enough to do the slide in his area of the pool. He really has to warm up to adventurous things while Grace goes full throttle!

Sweet girl doing the lazy river!

The park did have a huge enclosed water slide that Grace was big enough to ride! She's 2 inches shy to do the ones at our gym. I think she did this continuously while we were there! She's so independent and wants to do her own thing, by herself. She wants no help from me! Where did my baby go?

Our Sunday School class has playdates about once a month. This month was at a city waterpark, similar to our gym facilities. The kids had a blast, thank goodness. Besides the pool, mommy hasn't been to adventurous this summer! Poor darlings are probably having a boring summer.

Isn't my diaper bag beautiful!!! I cannot believe they got this for me! It's super big and cute, and came with a bottle warmer, changing pad, and zip up bag for dirty diapers! Sweet! It was a great night and I am so thankful for these hilarious girls!

I got some super cute clothes and Target gift cards! Score!!!!

Even more sweet friends!

More sweet friends!

On July 16th, some of my church choir buddies threw me a dinner party for the baby. Since it's my third, it's kind of impractical and rude to have a shower. We just had fun eating together and I got a couple of really cute things!! Most of these girls have recently had babies too, so it's been a fun fall, spring, and summer!

We got to go to a huge brunch in the hotel the next morning. It was fabulous! We ate so much we didn't want to swimming. Josh rigged up our camera and got a picture of us off our balcony before we left. Happy 10th anniversary, honey! I got an updated wedding ring, that I should've taken a picture of. It's gorgeous! And I got another band coming for it when the baby gets here. After my swelling goes down, I'll post a pic of it! What a sweet hubby! Maybe we can take the cruise next year.

After we checked in Friday night, we went to an Italian place to eat. I love Italian, but Josh, not so much, so we don't eat it often. Then we came back and walked around the hotel and people watched. This Cowboy was on stilts and next to him was a lady all covered with greenery on stilts. People didn't realize she moved, so it was hysterical to watch people freak out! Once it got dark, there was a fireworks show outside over the lake. Embarrassingly, I couldn't walk all the way out to the fireworks, so Josh got me a wheelchair and wheeled my pregnant self out to the festivities. Talk about devotion!

Here's a replica of the Alamo. It's a snack bar/coffee bar inside!

If any of you have ever been to the Opryland Hotel in Nashville, this place was built by the same people. Indoor water features and lots of plants, but with a Texas feel! So fun to look off your balcony and watch everything!

July 10th was Josh and my anniversary!!! We were celebrating 10 years! I am so blessed to be married to such a great and patient guy! He provides so well for us, and plays with the kids constantly! He bathes them for me, and we sure enjoy all our family time together! We were supposed to go on a cruise for the anniversary, but since I am hugely pregnant, we had to stay in Dallas. But we got to stay at the Gaylord Texan! It was awesome!

Here's a picture of us visiting the Frisco Snow Cone lady after supper one night. We frequent her about once a week, because the snow cones are $1.00 and huge! Who has $1.00 snow cones anymore?? And she's a widow trying to make money. By the length of the lines, we think she makes about $150.00 an hour! That's pretty good in my opinion. Boy, are they yummy!

Hey! I just found your blog off of Kelly Woodard's! Your family is so beautiful. I am proud of you for taking the kids to the pool being preggers! And congrats are due now. I think I said that on FB.
