we have a tradition of camping at manzanita campground in sedona every summer. it is close and easy. this year we went with our family in town. our sites were a little too close to the bathrooms, but maybe at 8 months pregnant i shouldn't complain.
we had some pretty great camping meals, some with fresh fruit, croissants, breakfast burritos, steak, s'mores, and indian take-out.
we brought our favorite camping books from the library.
the bigger kids went on a hike with the papis and the baby and old dog and mamis stayed back to read in the hammocks.
and we swam, and we explored. mateo found a baby snake slithering underneath the tent luke was sleeping in. i didn't believe him at first since we'd talked a lot about looking out for snakes. i felt so bad when i realized he really had seen one.
ruby had mean faces, and happy faces.
i had (have) a big belly. this friday is this little one's due date, but we all know not to count on that with me.
