Can I take another nap?!?!

Yesterday Adam and I returned from our annual camping trip to Door County. I felt great about going since I had just finished out the last of my classes for the summer and am done teaching summer school! Adam and I look forward to this trip every year. This trip is something that Adam and his family have been doing for the past 30 years!!! This was my fouth year and the last year where we will be able to relax and have the trip be about US! The majority of the time is spent at the beach (every nice day...), biking, shopping, by camp fires and eating. This year particularly, I spent more time napping... and eating. Elle made the trip and proved that she will be a great camper in the years to come. Next year will be busier for Missy and Dave, but fun at the same time. I enjoyed having the week for cuddles and snuggles! I didn't get any pictures of her though, except for on my phone when she was dressed for the beach. I will have to work on how to get them onto the blog...

We found this sign on our side of the camper when we showed up... I guess I am under construction for a little one!

Next year will be very different with a 5 month old!

The Annual Trip to Wilson's for Ice Cream

7 a.m. Tee Time... No thanks. The boys golfing.
We met them later for Breakfast.

The Boys at the Beach

As much as we look forward to this trip, it is nice to return to the comforts of home. Getting everything unpacked, put away and laundry done can be another job in itself. This year my mom helped take care of Izzie and then my sister helped with the rest of the time. Leaving her while we go on trips is always hard, but she knowing is probably being more spoiled than she is at home makes it better. Elly and Price really enjoyed having her is Superior (so they say) and Izzie came home in a great mood ready to play and relax in her own home. One thing she has been doing lately is hunting a ground squirrel we have in the yard... she traps him up the drain spout and sits by it for hours until I make her leave so he can come out! It never fails that she knows he's in there. Maybe Adam needs to do the real hunting...

It seems that Adam can never truely escape work unless he is on vacation. Door County is one of his vacations. It also helps that his phone does not get reception while camping. Coming home, Adam had a larger job in front of him that we did not want to be dealing with. We got 6 1/2 inches of rain in one night, so we came home to a wet basement due to a leaky window. Before even putting our camping stuff away, Adam was moving stuff and pulling apart the floor and wall to stop mold from forming. And we thought the baby room was the next project... nope. Oh well, what do you do. I am thinking we are not the only people with this problem... what can you do when you get that much rain in such a short amount of time!

There used to be wood flooring and a fridge occupying this space...

Tomorrow is a big and exciting day for Adam and I. We are going to our first doctor appointment to hopefully be able to hear the heartbeat. We will also do an ultra-sound to make sure we are only having ONE baby! It's too early to find out the gender of the baby, but I don't think we are going to anyway. Maybe I will have the pictures uploaded by next week. Some questions I have for this appointment are:

1. Can I eat fish? (Adam preferred to wait to ask Dr. Walker, but I want a fish fillet from Mcdonald's!!!) I have read that it is safe, but Adam is questioning my research....

2. How late into the pregnancy can I fly?

With finishing summer school, finishing classes, and camping it has been a long past couple days. I am looking forward to getting into my classroom and making the transition into the school year while enjoying the last two weeks off!
