Hello! We are excited to take Matthew camping for the first time! We are setting up camp tomorrow! We are not going that far from home. Only to the Gull Lake Recreation Area! This is an annual event started by Scott's aunt, Karyl. I believe it was started 23 years ago. Of course, over the years it has grown to include more and more people. We are actually setting up a day earlier than most of the group. We decided that we didn't want to "rough" it with a little one so we are borrowing my mom and stepdad's motorhome. The pack-n-play fits in just right (per my mom-she showed us just how to set it in there and still have room). She takes my nephew camping with them.

I'm glad we are not that far from home just in case. Matthew has never slept in his pack-n-play or away from home. I am a little nervous but excited at the same time. The nap thing is the thing that worries me the most. He is still taking 2 naps a day and if he doesn't, he gets pretty onery. Also what if I forget something! I have been making lists for days to make sure that I get everything but it is always the small things that always seem to be forgotten. We have to come home each day anyway so that our cat can get fed so if we do forget anything, we can get it then. Do all new moms worry about forgetting things when they go on vacation/camping? Whew I think we will all be dead tired by the time we come home.

I will be posting LOTS of pictures when we return! Well I better finish getting everything ready and try to get some sleep tonight in MY bed! Hope everyone has a great week!

totally! i hate travelling. my grandma once said, "it will get easier once you don't have little kids. but i guess you'd prefer to have the little kids." she knows me!

I still am pretty much prepared for anything when I go somewhere. . . it drives my husband crazy! I have downsized what I take now with 2 kids--I got sick of carrying so much stuff! :0)
