We have been on a field trip to Richmond to take some family portraits!!

Behold, our baby’s face : )


He had his hands up by his face most of the time, but we got several clear shots. It was a fun experience! I will actually have a video to share too – pending! And a few more photos – including a nice smirk : )

I went on a walk this morning and before we left on our trip, snacked on some Matt Cracks. Although these were not made by my husband, but Matt B, our employee who also writes a blog. Thus the recipe is here!


When we got to Richmond aka RVA (!) we went into Trader Joe’s to kill 15 minutes and pick up some DHA for the baby and sunflower butter for me! Smoked trout for lunch soon!


Our next stop was lunch – at Good Foods Grocery!


To meet our friends Brittany and Isaac on their lunch break! Always fun to get together with these two. Brittany and I talk blogs, babies and weddings and Isaac and Matt talk beer  : )


Good Food serves a bunch of raw/vegan/veggie/organic foods so we piled up on the nutrients



Brittany and I both got Living Salads with a scoop of cottage cheese, crackers, beets, walnuts and apples.


The cottage cheese on top was SO unique – in a good way! It was almost like a cottage cheese salad where they had mixed in celery and walnuts and then chopped up the curds some. I thought it was a mock cottage cheese at first! But we asked at the end and it was actually Organic Valley. The salad was great – I ate about 2/3 and passed the rest to Matt.



Veggie juice on the side!


Matt had a tempeh Reuben –


Our appointment was next – 3D times with the baby! Even more than his profile, it was awesome to get to see his orientation in there. Now I realize why I get all my kicks on the right side – and his butt under my ribs all the time!

And then we hit the road home. Richmond seems to far away but that drive to Short Pump is nothing!

Upon our arrival, we stopped by the bakery for a zucchini bread tasting – today’s was an improvement on yesterday’s lemon version plus a cheesy cornbread version that was pretty darn good! I was still full from lunch, so I only had a bite of each.


Home on the range and chillin’ before a dinner party tonight!

Cheesy cornbread zuke bread?! Goodness gracious! Love your shirt…where’s it from?

Motherhood Maternity :)

That is so cool re: the photos! And the salad.. oh yum! I recently discovered I actually like beets, and have been putting them in heaps of my salads too. I also made an amazing beet hummus that I was skeptical about at first but it’s actually divine! Here’s the recipe: http://eat-spin-run-repeat.com/2012/06/21/dinner-time/
Have a great dinner party tonight!

That salad looks incredible! I will definitely be making something similar soon! 3D scans are so amazing!


5 Trainer Kjirsten @ Balanced Healthy Life June 27, 2012 at 4:14 pm

I love the 3D picture! It is amazing how much your baby will look just like the pictures! I was blown away when we had our daughter and she indeed looked just like her 3D pictures!!!


6 Betsy June 27, 2012 at 4:20 pm

How cool to get 1st images of KERF baby! You are so cute with your little belly. I was just thinking of how fun this blog is going to be to read with a new family member! I visited that litte grocery store when I was in cville last (after a fabulous lunch at Hot Cakes!) and I had the most tasty on tap Kombucha! Wish I had one right now. Can’t wait to see more pics.


7 Janelle June 27, 2012 at 4:20 pm

Maybe this is in my head, but I totally think he looks like you already!


8 KathEats June 27, 2012 at 4:21 pm

Haha aw thanks. There are so many things about 3D that make the photos hard to read – focus, umbilical cords, angles – but I hope he looks like us!


9 Katie June 28, 2012 at 10:01 am

I agree! I totally see the resemblance :)


10 Katie @ Peace Love & Oats June 27, 2012 at 4:25 pm

cheesy cornbread sounds delicious to me! And how cool you can see your baby’s face!!!


11 Johanna B June 27, 2012 at 4:26 pm

Kath, he’s a cutie!!!


12 Emily Butler June 27, 2012 at 4:36 pm

Definitely going to have to try that cracker recipe, I was just thinking an hour ago that I needed something crunchy to eat but had nothing in the house! And that salad looks so good!!


13 Kelley June 27, 2012 at 4:41 pm

So so cute!!! He is adorable! If his hands are up by his face already, get ready for some baby swaddles when he gets here! They’ll probably stay up even after he’s born, as we found out. Too cute. You look great! Happy Big Mama club. =)


14 Cait's Plate June 27, 2012 at 4:45 pm

What a great afternoon! I love Brittany :)

And that’s so crazy what a clear picture you can get of your baby’s face!! He looks like a little cutie :)

Sunflower butter is most definitely an essential – glad you were able to stock up!


15 Brittany June 27, 2012 at 5:08 pm

I bet it was so fun getting to see the little one’s face. Technology is amazing!

I’m glad we got to meet up for lunch. I see what you’re saying about Isaac and I looking alike – I think the button up shirts made us look even more similar today. :)

And, I’ve already tried the zucchini bread and it’s really good. I love the crunchy top and edges.


16 KathEats June 27, 2012 at 5:23 pm

I love that photo of you two!!

And glad you like the bread!! They went with the lemon one for sales and I’m sad because the crunchy top was my favorite part!


17 Molly @ RDexposed June 27, 2012 at 5:13 pm

How fun! What comes next after the development of 3D pictures?? Arts and crafts coming from baby in utero?


18 Annette @FitnessPerks June 27, 2012 at 5:16 pm

Awww fun! You got to see your baby’s face! HOW cool is that?! :)


19 Randy June 27, 2012 at 5:19 pm

That is an awesome picture of your baby boy, he looks so happy and content.

I noticed that the winner on “Jeapardy” last night was a man from C-Ville, VA. I can’t remember his name but he did well on the show.

Have a great evening!


20 KathEats June 27, 2012 at 5:21 pm

Haha fun!! We were just named America’s Brainiest City by The Atlantic – coincidence!? http://www.theatlanticcities.com/neighborhoods/2012/06/americas-brainiest-cities/2132/


21 Randy June 27, 2012 at 5:21 pm

I think I misspelled “Jeopardy” in my last post. :)


22 Elisabeth June 27, 2012 at 5:41 pm

Brittany & Isaac could practically be twins! Can’t wait to see some video of Baby Kerf 😉


23 Susan H. @ The Food Allergy Chronicles June 27, 2012 at 6:05 pm

Zuchinni bread looks sooo good! First I have heard of 3D images…very cool! Gosh, how times change!


24 Averie @ Averie Cooks June 27, 2012 at 6:15 pm

being able to see my baby when I was pregnant was THE HIGHLIGHT of the entire pregnancy! it’s almost as good as holding them…but at 30 weeks, it’s like the best gift ever! Congrats :)


25 Katie @ Talk Less, Say More June 27, 2012 at 6:29 pm

The 3D portrait is crazy! It’s so crazy to me to see how far technology has come. It’s like you’ve nearly met your little guy already!


26 Patrick Timpone June 27, 2012 at 6:34 pm

How exciting about your baby. When are you due? Is that Organic Pastures raw cheese right underneath your baby picture? That snack looks delicious!


27 Megan @ Megan's Munchies June 27, 2012 at 6:53 pm

What an amazing day and you got to see your precious baby’s face! Just beautiful! So happy for you!


28 Jennifer June 27, 2012 at 6:53 pm

What a great pic of his face! I think his eye looks like Matt and his nose and mouth look like you. :) What a cutie he is.


29 Carly June 27, 2012 at 6:59 pm

He is so cute! This might just be because I already know he’s a boy, but he looks so boyish! Congratulations! So exciting :-).


30 Karen June 27, 2012 at 7:02 pm

I had a strong feeling your adventure involved some baby photography…he’s sure a cutie, as are you in that flattering t-shirt – I tell ya, that bright melon shade is your color :)


31 Sarah June 27, 2012 at 7:15 pm

How did Matt like his lunch? I’ve been wanting to try a tempeh reuben when I see them on menus but am unsure if I’d like it or not.


32 KathEats June 27, 2012 at 8:44 pm

He says “it was awesome!”


33 Ashley @ Hudson on the Potomac June 27, 2012 at 7:37 pm

Cheesy cornbread zucchini bread?! Yum!! The 3D picture is so neat!


34 Michaela June 27, 2012 at 7:38 pm

I actually made my first sunflower seed butter today and was thinking about you :)
Sooo easy to make at home!


35 Kel June 27, 2012 at 8:28 pm

That may be the cutest photo of you taken this whole pregnancy…I am referring to the one sitting at the table. Adorable.

Little baby is just precious! Amazing the technology advances in the last 15 years!


36 Eileen June 27, 2012 at 8:30 pm

Baby pics!! And that cottage cheese salad looks wonderful. I make a Polish cottage cheese salad called salatka (“salad” in Polish–super original, I know), with radishes and green onion. So good!


37 Catalina @ Cake with Love June 27, 2012 at 8:59 pm

oh that salad looks so fresh and good, I love beets!!


38 Angel7 June 27, 2012 at 9:26 pm

Oh my… I cannot believe what technology can show you! That is amazing!



39 Fran@ Broken Cookies Don't Count June 28, 2012 at 4:45 am

The baby looks like he’s a sculpture…so cool what they can do now. The salad looks incredible, now my mind is working on adding things to cottage cheese!


40 Carla June 28, 2012 at 7:35 am

YOUR BABY’S FACE!! I was SO thrilled to see this – how cool they can do this now???!


41 Sara June 28, 2012 at 7:35 am

Love Good Food Grocery! I work near the area and am often that way for lunch. :-) (And I love TJ’s!) Glad you had a good day in RVA!


42 Julia H. @ Going Gulia June 28, 2012 at 12:47 pm

Never heard of Good Foods Grocery. Is it like a Whole Foods + a restaurant? That food you had for lunch looks REALLY good, so I’ll try to keep my eye out for this place!


43 Lexi @ You, Me, & A World to See June 30, 2012 at 9:48 am

Cheesy zucchini cornbread? Oh man, I’d love a recipe for that :)
