At 36 weeks, I wrapped up all the major projects at work, and started taking some vacation time. Cliff and I took Sam, and drove down to our favorite spot on the Oregon Coast–Cannon Beach, and stayed there for about a week. Having been working a lot of long hours, I was really looking forward to this break. Cliff had just taken on a new contract with a different studio, so he had to bring work with him. But at least we were going to be on the beach!
We drove through the worst rain storm on the way down to Oregon. But once we arrived at Cannon Beach, the weather cleared up and it was 5 straight days of sunshine! Joshua was kicking a lot in my tummy (now 37 weeks), so I think he was enjoying the beach as well.
