We had picked a campsite right on the lake, so the views were absolutely gorgeous. I must admit, it was nice being out there, pretty detached from the world. It was challenging with a 3 year old at times, keeping him away from the fire and out of the tent with his dirty shoes, but still nice.
We went on a hike at sunset, after we grilled hot dogs over the fire. I’ve had a major hotdog craving, so that was perfect for me!
Of course s’mores were in order later that night and we roasted the egg shaped flavored marshmallows I found, too.
Cooper wrote his own book before we left. It was a “scary story” that he read with the flashlight to his face. It was the cutest thing, him walking around, trying to scare us. He then told us the original, autographed copy of his book is for sale for $14.99. Just in case we wanted to buy it. Ha!
The boys slept soundly and the hubs and I were far from that. I was up like every hour out there. We were all up before 7am, made breakfast, hung out, I took a little nap, then we headed home. The laundry after camping trip is epic! I think I did 4 loads and I have one to rewash because it still smells like bonfire! We played outside, colored eggs and I did some Easter dinner cooking.
Easter morning was a blast. The boys had their new baskets from Personal Creations that are so cute and bigger than their “baby” baskets. They held a ton of loot!
We ate a ton of Easter dinner, which included the nitrate free ham I went to 4 stores looking for. Pregnant eating is tricky sometimes! I may have eaten that potato au gratin casserole for breakfast. That Pioneer Woman and her heavy cream dishes get me every time.
I made a bunny cake because I had leftover cake mix from the April fools hamburger cupcakes I made the boys, but I really wanted banana pudding. We ate dessert and stayed up late watching Big Hero 6 and eating popcorn.
Today is lazy day #1! Spring break and relaxing all week, about to head out to the lake and enjoy a ton of family time for the next 7 days! Tomorrow is baby’s anatomy scan! Jumping out of my skin with excitement is an absolute understatement. Can’t wait to share the news!
