Back East and Baltimore

All the Utah Davis clan took a trip back East to visit the Maryland Davis clan. It was fun to see where Clark and Kara live and explore some of the sites around them.  

Here we are at Ft. McHenry, you know Francis Scott Key, Star Spangled Banner? Epic
A must see in Baltimore.

 We all went to an Orioles game one night. The sign above us is pronounced "Utah" Street. C'mon Easterners...

This is the closest Nate has come to finishing a marathon yet... hehe
 We spent a day in D.C., love D.C., here we are at the White House. Notice the protest going on behind us, mind you it was a peaceful protest.
Nate and I have bad luck trying to see Ford's Theater. Every time we go for a tour it is closed. Well, we stuck out again. Makes for a good outside picture though.

 One of the funnest things was watching these three girlies play. On this particular night they threw a concert for us with Gracie's violin. We could have some budding virtuosos on our hands.
 A monument at Valley Forge, PA
We only had a short time here, but it is huge, and beautiful.
 Liberty Bell in Philadelphia
 Senate Chamber in Congress Hall 
After doing my internship at the Capitol it was fun to see both chambers and the committee rooms and such because I could visualize what went on in those rooms.
Independence Hall
This is where the Declaration and the Constitution were deliberated and signed. It is one of my favorite places to visit. It was fun because I had just taught about much of the 1700s and 1800s in student teaching and we were able to see many of the sites.
You can't go to Philly without having a Philly Cheesesteaks. Nate researched and found us one of the top restaurants in Philly. Campos Phillys.

We commandeered the Washington Family Pew for church at Christ's Church in Philly
Elferth's Alley. Homes date back to 1701.

It was a great trip. It was so fun to play with everyone and spend time all together!

We Saw Our BABY!

Today was my 20-week ultrasound.  Nate and I went together to see our baby.  After seeing its hearbeat and brain, and everything else that looked good, we found out the gender!

Announcements

We Moved!
After 7 great months at the Davis residence, Nate and I broke down and found an apartment! It is one of those "don't judge the book by it's cover" type of places. The inside was renovated right before we moved in and it is located in a safe/happy Sugarhouse neighborhood! We are totally excited to be here.

We are going to be Parents!
Yep you heard it right, come October 5ish we will be having a baby! If your like me and haven't done the math in your head yet, that puts me 18 weeks along! On May 15 we will be finding out the gender of the baby, and I will be about half-way along! It really seems to be flying by. I have felt pretty good for the most part. It has been so fun to plan, prepare, and talk about the changes that will be coming for us. Nate and I are really excited to be parents and feel really blessed.
So, if you have any advice, tips, whatever, we welcome any help we can get!
