Camping trip

I'm going to be gone for a few days. We are taking the kids on a camping trip to Beaver's Bend.
We are staying in a cabin on the river (not tent camping - I'm not insane). The river empties into this HUGE lake and it should be a lot of fun. There are tons of nature trails and lots of river fishing for trout. There is also a terrific museum at the entrance to the park that the kiddos will love.

The last time we were there Max was in my belly. I was right at 13 wks along and right at the end of all the morning sickness stuff. This time I'll have my whole family there. I am happy. Also - it is gorgeous and right now the Dogwoods should be just starting to bloom. I can't wait.

However, the baby is still sick and can't breathe and we had a terrible night last night. Now, on less than 2 hours sleep, I only have to do 3 loads of laundry, do the grocery shopping for the trip (we simply MUST have the stuff to make s'mores with and hot dogs to roast on sticks - cause that is how I roll when we camp) and I have to get us all packed. Oh and did I mention the 12 yr old is home sick today too??? Ugh. I am tired but really happy.

But, these are the days - the good days overall - so we are going to push ahead and have a good time no matter what!

See ya'll when we get back next week.


  1. Aw, there is nothing worse than a sick baby. Sorry. Hope you get some sleep and have fun on your outing.

  2. LOVE Beaver's Bend. We used to go up there all the time when I was a kid. I remember distinctly my Granny catching a big fish and wetting her pants on one of those trips. Fun times! Hope you guys had a great time. Post pics!
