Wishing I was on vacation...
I am sitting here thinking how I would rather be on a vacation; I am in much need of one! We usually go on vacation in September; however we didn’t go this past year since we had just had Abigail on July 29. However, last year this time Jason and I went on what we referred to as our “baby moon”, kind of our final hara before Abigail came.
It was such a wonderful week and a half away from everything! We drove to Florida [we took 2 days and spent the night in Georgia].

We were sad that the vacation was over, but when we got back we had our doctor’s appointment to find out the sex of our baby, and how wonderful it was to hear, “it’s a girl!” We plan on taking a vacation this year in September, and I can’t wait for Abigail to see the ocean, to have her little chubby toes in the sand and see her running from the waves. But for now, I will enjoy our time in cold Kentucky, where I am hoping that the sun will make an appe
