And then all of a sudden it was September and I'm looking at these photos from last week going, that was in the "summer" (I know summer isn't officially over until later in the month, but for me summer is basically over when September hits.)
We really did have such a good week away as a family of three for the first time! It was a good way to ease into "travelling" with a baby - the road trip wasn't all that long and obviously it's easier when you get somewhere and stay put for a few days. Mike was working during the day so June and I spent a lot of time laying around and gurgling and taking some really great walks along the shore of the lake. I even managed to get out on my own for some runs which was amazing to keep up with my training (that half-marathon is seriously encroaching on me quickly... I need to decide imminently if it's going to happen!)
We had a pack n' play for sleeping but June didn't really take to it; we ended up co-sleeping most of the week and as a result I didn't get the best sleeps. But it was worth it. We consumed many a gourmet cottage meal, drank our coffee on the dock and watched Cliff chase the frisbee; we didn't feel a huge need to wander too far from the house but we did make a quick trip to a local brewery one day and a really cute cafe another day. Mostly we just lounged and did what we would do at home, except against the most beautiful backdrop... After spending most of the summer inside, it was a great way to feel like we're leaving the season soaked in a bit of sun.
I've totally become that cheese ball parent with the camcorder, except luckily, unlike the camcorders of my youth, you don't have to carry it on your shoulder- thankfully my iPhone is a bit more discreet. Anyhoo! A little video on our first week away together!
