Glad to be home!

Saturday, July 5, 2014

I love camping. Camping is just the best. Camping makes you really appreciate being home again.  

We got to Restoule Provincial Park late in the afternoon on Tuesday and arrived to decent weather. Not too hot, not too cold.  Wednesday was pretty nice for most of the day, but then it started to rain. And it rained and rained and rained.  We spent Thursday driving around; took a trip to North Bay and had lunch at a place called the Urban Cafe, where we stopped and had lunch on our honeymoon.  We went to the Commanda General Store museum and had coffee with a local and 'toured' the museaum. We did a lot of reading and napping, and although we didn't get out hiking as much or down to the beach, I do feel well rested... but very glad to be home in my nice, dry, mosquito-free house!

The most beautiful place in the province, if you ask me!

Large and in charge. Staying positive despite the damp weather!

Dan still has three days off, which is super-nice because I like spending time with that guy.  Today he's hard at work building Ikea furniture for the Baby's room, and yesterday he finished painting.  We went on Monday to Ikea, hoping it wouldn't be busy, but we were wrong.  Most of what we wanted was sold out and I ended up leaving very frustrated and annoyed.  Usually I love Ikea!  We still have lots of time to get the baby's room done, but I will be glad to get it out of the way and I think it will make this whole "having a baby" thing feel a little more real (it still feels like a fairly abstract idea to me).  I hate feeling like I've left things until the last minute. I keep having this day-dream/nightmare that the baby comes early and we haven't done anything to get ready and the baby (who can talk in my dreams) gets mad at me and says I'm a bad mother (funny and very annoying).  Dan and I both work so much that it's hard to find the time... I'm glad Dan has had this time off to take over some of the prep-work. It's a load off my shoulders!


  1. You look so cute in your buffalo check! What a beautiful place! Glad you guys had a good time. :)

  2. Oh man it looks so gorgeous out there!! Glad you had a lovely time.
    But, it sucks what you wanted at Ikea was sold out =< That's no fun.
