We're expecting baby # 2 in January! Right now I'm 17 weeks pregnant, so we will find out if it is a boy or girl in three weeks. Yay, can't wait! We are a little late at officially getting the news out, however, the baby bump popped out well before it's due time! We're excited for another bundle of joy around here!

Day 14 July 4th: We woke up and drove from Bilbao to San Sebastian. This place was one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to. We drove around the bay and up in the hills to the Tower at Monte Igueldo. We went up the tower and gasped over the view. We ate at the Wimbledon restaurant that was at the tennis club. I had the best veggie lasagna I have ever eaten. Then we walked through the city.
I'm in gelato heaven

(This pic is from the internet, but there were people everywhere around us that were doing the same thing.)
The entrance to the bull stadium
Day 17 July 7th: We woke up really early for the running of the bulls. Everyone was still sleeping in the park and throwing up everywhere. GROSS. Apparently they partied a little too hard the day before. The bull route was packed. We left Shane and Robert and went to find a place to watch. I didn't realize how many people were there to actually run as well. Luckily the bulls didn't get too close to them. I couldn't get any good pictures of what was going on, so I added a few from the internet. They were taken on the days that we were there. After the running of the bulls was over that morning we took Shane's parents back to San Sebastian so they could fly back to Paris. Shane and I spent the rest of the day walking the city and shopping. We drove to a little town called Olite and stayed in a beautiful Castle suite for our 3rd anniversary.
Here come the bulls : /
Some of the bulls are passing at this moment. If you look close you can see the guys jumping up on the first fence and diving through it to get out of the way.
(Internet Pics) The bulls have to jump the mounds of people crouched at the entrance of the stadium.
Waiting for the firework to sound the release of the bulls. Look at the packed street. I think the most dangerous thing is that they can't really run and get out of they way of the bulls all of the time because there are so many people.
Here is the guy whose handkerchief was caught on the bulls horn. He was dragged about 100 yards. Luckily he was okay!
Beautiful plazas in Pamplona
Check out the size of that paella. I went for the fries instead.
Day 19 July 9th: We woke up and saw a little more of Salamanca. We saw the Salamanca University, the oldest in Spain and one of the most prestigious in Europe. We shopped a little, and drooled over the thousands of baby stores that line the streets. Then we drove the rest of the way to Madrid. We ate at Estrella, a restaurant owned by a sister missionary's family from Shane's mission. After walking around the heart of Madrid we headed back to temple square and stayed in the hostel there.
Plaza del Sol
I loved these street performers.
