Monday always comes too quick.
Especially after returning from vacation. The weekend was spent doing all the things you need to do after coming home, unpacking, laundry, grocery shopping. I tried to be relaxed about it, and tried not to feel overwhelmed. Overall, I didn't do too bad. Miss O. had swim lessons on Saturday morning, and we spent the afternoon unpacking and catching up on housework.
That left some time for fun on Sunday.
Our friends received a pop-up camper recently as a gift, and have been camping with their two boys quite a bit. They keep inviting us out with them, but M. and I aren't really sure how our girly-girl would do camping. Yesterday, they called and said they were only camping about a 1/2 hour down the road, and why don't we come on out to visit. So, we packed up a couple of coolers with goodies and headed out. It was really nice to hang out by the campfire, and Miss O. had a blast playing with the boys.
Oddly, the conversation around the campfire turned to our upcoming IVF cycle.
This couple is one of the few of our friends that even know that we are considering this route. There were some jokes related to J&K+8, but mostly, they asked genuine, honest questions. I was really surprised at how many times M. started answering before I could. I didn't realize how much he had listened to me!
It was a great evening that came to an end much to quickly. M. and I were shocked at how much fun Miss O. had. She didn't complain once about the bugs, getting dirty, and loved having s'mores.
I'm pretty sure I see a tent in our future.
