Greenway Green

April 30, 2012

Good morning!

How lovely was it that we stepped out the door just after waking this morning and were greeted by a bright green greenway on which to walk! I wasn’t able to get more than a 30 minute stroll in Sat or Sun, so I had big plans for a few miles this morning before we sit in a car all day. Matt and I covered 3+ miles on the most beautiful spring morning imaginable. I had a few dried plums for quick energy before we left.

I think I can say that 22 weeks was the week I popped –

Back at home, we smothered banana and sunflower butter on Cville Crunch and enjoyed some fruit salad

And an extra splash of protein

I always finish reading your posts with cravings galore. Silky nut butter and cheese are in the lead.

I love getting in a good run or workout before a car trip! When I had to drive from Colorado to Kansas City with my mom, I was up at 5am just to get in a run beforehand! Definitely helped my sanity…

That fruit salad is the perfect little splash of color and is making me crave the one I’m having for lunch!

Good call on the nice walk before the car ride. I was always SO uncomfortable in the car toward the end of my pregnancy!

It’s funny you say you’ve popped because you’re going to double that! haha. Love it. I’m sure once every new mom starts showing, she thinks she looks huge. You DO look great!

I put in a good walk before my long car ride home yesterday from my mom’s. Filled up on gas, grabbed a coffee, turned on the tunes and I was all set to settle in for the drive! Bonus: coming home just in time to enjoy a plate of homemade spagetti and meat sauce with my boys! Boy I missed them!

You look great! …and I love the expression of the dog!

It’s amazing how differently every women carries her pregnancies, even from one baby to the next. An active mom is a happy, healthy mom!

hey Kath, you are totally cute. And your photos of the green way plus ones like the tulip shot from this weekend are just so gorgeous. Your photography is always great and I feel like I do not comment enough — I just get used to the awesome photos! When really, it takes WORK. Lovely, as always, Kath!

We went for a walk in the neighborhood yesterday in the evening, and it was so nice!

Today, it is even nicer with a temperature around 75 degrees, so we are definitely going to get out this afternoon to play :)

Such a cute bump!! I popped right around 21-22 weeks too…I walked into my mother-in-law’s house the other day and she said “Wow, you REALLY look pregnant!”, which I tried to take as a compliment :)
