Week 24 Update!

Week 24 Update!

So we really like Bodega Bay! We went camping this last weekend and ended up at Timber Cove Campground about an hour north of Bodega Bay on HWY 1. It probably was the perfect spot for us to camp. We had flushing toilets, and hot showers nearby and yeah I know, some of you will say that’s not real camping but when you have a pregnant wife and a 2-year-old it makes the whole trip more bearable. What ever you want to call it we had fun! It was Snow’s first time camping and we finally got to use some of our Christmas gifts that we received last year. A tent from my father in law and our new sleeping bags from my parents. The tent was huge! I thought that it was a four person tent but then I read the packaging as I packed the tent back up and discovered it is a 6 person tent! Way more than we need but the extra space was greatly appreciated! Also, the sleeping bags were so comfy I didn’t want to get up from the nice soft warmth it provided.

We did not move an inch the whole night, it was probably the best night of sleep the three of us had in a long time!

Our campground sat on the edge of the cliff and had beach camping available but we didn’t come prepared (didn’t bring enough cash) and it was high tide so the attendant wouldn’t allow any more people at the time or we would have camped right on the beach!

We had some yummy Johnsonville cheddar jalapeno hot dogs roasted over the fire and later stuffed our faces with smores! Well Mandy and I did, Snow wasn’t remotely interested. I hope that changes as she gets older because Smores are the best part of camping!

It has been a long time since I have seen so many stars, where we live we are surrounded by light at night so the sky isn’t as dark and Mandy and I both miss the star lit night sky. It was perfect.

We woke up and packed up camp then headed back to Bodega Bay for a day at the beach. It is absolutely Snow’s favorite place in the world! We had fun doing all the beach stuff for the good part of the afternoon and we even got back home at a decent time.

Our souvenirs from this trip was a couple of sea shells and sunburn. I don’t know what got into her but Mandy decided that she wanted to become a lobster. She started changing her skin color to reflect the likeness and has a “snappy” attitude when I poke at the bright red spots on her shoulders. Apparently, she doesn’t like the attention.

Totally joking about poking her, but she did get burned pretty good. I’ve been helping by rubbing aloe and lotion on the affected areas in hopes the burns will heal faster. Snow walked away with the least amount of sun damage, just a little “x” where her bathing suit crossed in the back, and my neck gives a whole new meaning to “red neck”. I somehow burned a small spot on the top of my foot which I noticed when I took a hot shower the next day. Overall not too bad, but poor Mandy.

Week 24 with the pregnancy and nothing exciting to report. The baby loves the audio recordings that Patrick and Damien are sending us. My wife is using belly buds to deliver audio recordings to the baby so that he may know the sound of his parent’s voices as well as some music. We get the most movement from the baby when Mandy is using the belly buds and it is just confirmation that this sort of thing is effective. If you would like to order yourself a pair of these belly buds you can follow this link here.

That is all I have for this week! See you next time!
