Summer - Take 3
Nearly two years ago O was born and while I had grand plans to spend that summer going on long, leisurely walks with my baby I actually spent my summer going on very short walks, praying that we would get home before O would start screaming again. And while I thought that I was going to spend my maternity leave getting tons of projects done around the house, I actually spent my summer acting as a human pacifier (which, incidentally, was not conducive to getting stuff done around the house).
And then there was last summer, where I had some high hopes of getting in some fun summer trips. Unfortuantely we learned the hard way that O is not so good at sleeping in a tent. We braved a camping trip only to have our one year old crawl around the tent until almost midnight and then proceed to scream every hour all throughout the night. Needless to say our two day camping trip was turned into a one day camping trip.
And now we're thinking about this summer and I've once again donned my optimist cap because I am ridiculously excited about what we have planned for this summer. A little excursion to the cutest little town on the Oregon coast. A week long stay at a lovely lake. A long weekend at some cabins on the penninsula. And another try at camping (which I could have passed on, but my husband insisted). I could not be more excited.
