A Weekend Away Before Baby Number 2
When I was pregnant with our son I heard heard that couples were taking a “Babymoon” before the arrival of a new baby. At that time life was just too busy to get a weekend away. This time around we decided one last weekend in the woods was just what we needed. Some might say it wasn’t a true “babymoon” since our son Cooper joined us but honestly I wouldn’t have wanted to leave him home. We love camping with our boy! We saw this last weekend as a way to celebrate our time as a family of three.
Considering how far along I was we decided to stick closer to home. One of our favorite close in spots is Elsie Lake in Idaho. It is a beautiful lake and relatively short drive (compared to a drive to Yellowstone!) A big plus was we get cell reception there. Just in case I went into labor!
We decided to invite a few good friends to join us for this fun weekend away. We were able to spend our days fishing and relaxing. ANd since camping always makes for a tired toddler Cooper went to bed early and we still had plenty of adult time around our campfire!
Our weekend at Elsie Lake was a great way to close out our camping season, spend quality time with friends and mentally prepare for Adelynn’s arrival!
