We just arrived home from our trip to the Northeast with my Mom, Dad, David Nicole, and Sam. It was a great trip that seemed to fly by. Probably because we did a lot of driving from one place to another, and lots of setting up of campers, and tearing down of campers. but thats what you do on this kind of trip. It was a little different for me doing a trip like this at 6 months pregnant. It was only a little more challenging than usual but we managed fine. I only had two days of pretty bad lower back pain. I haven't yet decided if it was from sitting in a car too long, or doing too much activity. When I was this far along with Annie I would get back pain from washing the dog or cleaning the house. So I guess it's normal to have some again. It's not all the time, just occasionally. Any way back to where we were. We started our Journey on Sunday morning leaving Knoxvegas. We decided to knock out a big drive right in the beginning so we drove 10 hours into New York for our first stop which was Niagara Falls. We set up camp in the dark but we were at our first location so the next morning we could drive right to Niagara Falls and spend the day there. Mom did an awesome job of planning and making meals for us all. She had a wonderful breakfast of eggs with sausage and toast ready for us in the morning. Mom and Dad have a huge camper with a slide, and we brought Scott's parents little pop-up camper. Annie slept in her pack'n'play on one side while Scott and I had the other side. Every morning Annie would wake up and instead of crying she would just start talking and laughing and playing in bed. She was just so excited to be somewhere different than home, and it was such an adventure for her. Be prepared for lots and lots of pics......This was our view for all of our driving. HaHa.
Annie loved spending all this time with her uncle Sam and David Aunt Nini, and Nana and Poppy. For some reason Sam was her favorite. Every morning she would wake up and start calling out for Nana and Poppy and the kids, and she would run over to their campsite to see everyone.
I thought this was so funny. If you have never been to or heard much of Niagara Falls it splits the Canada, U.S. border. I thought it was so funny how close we were to Canada. I thought it was cool looking at this sign cause we could see the other side of the river which was Canada. It was weird seeing a sign that said Canada this way. Ok I'm weird I don't know why I thought this was so cool.
A pic of mom and dads camper. This campsite was after we left the falls we packed up and drove to Vermont. We spent one night in one part of vermont, and the next night we spent two nights in another campsite in vermont.
Before I overload this post with too many more photos, i'll stop here and continue in the following post.
