Wednesday we stayed close to the house most the day! Lots of play time at the lake thanks to perfect weather and no south wind!
By this day, M was very comfortable on the rocks and at the lake. She was acting like she owned the place!
That evening, we went to town for dinner, and then came home for a very special night....camping! Months before we left for our trip, J had started thinking about taking M camping while we were here. We really weren't sure how'd she do sleeping in a tent and in a sleeping bag, so we thought this would be the perfect place for them to try it out ( I say "them" and not "we" because there's no way I was going to sleep on the ground in a tent at 29 weeks pregnant!). Wednesday afternoon they set up the tent on the deck, and that night was the big night! They got their head lamps on and were ready to go!
And sure enough, she slept all night (once she stopped talking J's ear off and went to sleep!). I was a proud mama on Thursday morning when they woke up and came in to greet me in bed. We got up and had breakfast and then some book and coffee time...
It was (yet again) a beautiful morning, so we packed a big lunch and hiked to Rose Point for a picnic.
I love this comparison shot from 2013 vs 2015!
Proof that I participated in the hike and the fun!
That afternoon, M played with stickers on the deck while J made us dinner. And the dogs took in cool air!
After dinner, we decided to put on some bug spray and go down to the rocks to watch the sunset and the stars come out. This ended up being one of my favorite memories from our trip. It was such a beautiful night and just being with M and J watching the clouds turn pink, with no distractions....it was perfect.
