Hello, all!! We are finally home and settling back into our routine from vacation. We actually got home Saturday evening, but between unpacking, loads of laundry, cleaning the house, and moving baby to her room, things have been crazy.
We spent a little over a week at the lake with my husband’s family. Here is the recap:
Oh my gosh, packing for baby K was so stressful. Our car was completely full! She needs SO much stuff!! It helped making a list. 3 adults, one child, and a BUNCH of stuff. Yikes!! We made it work though.
Baby K did great overall! Minimal crying/screaming, lots of staring at trees. She barely slept on the way there, but napped more on the way home.
The drive was around 5 hours, and we stopped a few times to feed and change her.
THE CABIN AND SLEEP:
The cabins are small, but we did have our own room. We put the pack and play by our bed, and baby slept in the doc a tot inside of it (which she is now officially out of since we’ve been home).
There is no air conditioning in the cabins, so we used fans. I was super worried about the baby, but we had the fan directly on her at night. She slept amazing the whole week!! Being outside made her tired, and she napped well and slept through each night. Around 6:15pm-6/7 am!
Making new family memories was a blast. Taking baby on her first boat ride and seeing her in the lake brought so much joy to our hearts.
With SO many people to play with the baby, my husband and I got to go out on the jetskis and have time with our friends.
After the baby went down in the evenings, we would eat and play games.
Food options are endless at the lake. I indulged, but still tried to be mindful of what I was eating.
I took advantage of the endless babysitters to workout each day. The area surrounding the lake has hills to run, which I did often. I loved the time for myself.
I also did pure barre videos, and lifted weights that my brother-in-law’s brought.
I definitely stressed way more than I needed to. We had a lot of fun! I was more than ready to be home by the end l though. There is nothing like home, and I love routine.
I hope you all enjoyed the update!
I’m going to sit here and continue to cuddle my baby because she is clingy right now haha.
Have a wonderful rest of the week!
