This year for the Fourth we stuck close to home, since baby is due any day now.
My parents reserved a pavilion up Hobble Creek Canyon, so we had a little camp-out (however at 39 weeks pregnant, I slept at home) and enjoyed the day up the canyon!
We had a great time eating good food, playing with bubbles, exploring for the kids, golfing for the guys, and enjoying the cooler temperatures up in the mountains.
We hope to make a canyon camp-out an annual activity!
We do love nature.
I didn't take as many pictures as I would have liked-- but here are a few that I did.
I started feeling a little "overly ripe" towards the end of the day.
That pretty much sums up how I am still feeling.
Ready for this baby to come more than ever...
Needless to say, this is a good test of patience-- something I will be needing as a mama.
Until then, I will continue writing out the name we are 75% sure of, checking the last couple of things off my to-do list, and doing anything the internet suggests to naturally induce labor.
Lots and lots of walks and Mexican food-- coming right up!
Hopefully a baby will soon follow.
And the photos!
(Lots of Will-- filling in as his pseudo photo-taking mom).
