BWCA at 7 Weeks Pregnant ;)

Grant, Evan, Natalie and Leidy gearing up for our BWCA weekend!

Group photo at the put-in!  Me (and baby Schnell), Grant, Leidy, Evan and Natalie

Paddling on a gorgeous day

The Parkhouses

Camp! We stayed at the same site the whole time which we haven't done before but was actually pretty nice - no setting up and taking down everyday :)

We love fall in the Boundary Waters :)

Leidy loves the BWCA too! Look how pretty!

Went for a little hike through the woods to an awesome sandy beach near our campsite.

Paddling around the next day

Hiking through the woods - apparently the boys saw some random little lake they wanted to go to...

Hmm ... do you really think we're going to find this lake??

I'm skeptical and branches are poking me in the face ;)

Gave up on the mystery lake and stopped for lunch and a swim

That water is COLD! Evan, Grant and Leidy

Back at camp

Enjoying the campfire. Leidy, Me, Natalie and Evan

What a pretty sunrise!

Awww :)  love it here!

Leidy girl enjoying her vacation - but she didn't really want to have to stop sniffing for the picture

Out to check out more of the lake

Lunch stop - things are never easy with these boys ;) Of course we have to 'climb' to our lunch spot :)

Leidy wants to help Natalie up!

A nice view for lunch!

Pretty sunset back at camp

Packed up and ready to paddle out in a wind storm! Whew that was a workout!

Bye BWCA - we'll be back soon!
Just a couple notes about the trip while pregnant... only Grant and I knew so we tried to be discreet about my paranoia of filtering water for EVERYTHING (sometimes we'd just boil it to wash dishes, etc but I felt the need to filter it all to be safe).  And I also felt skeptical about what to eat and didn't want to eat any meat, etc that hadn't been kept cold ;)  So, we probably were acting a little weird but I didn't want to get sick!  Overall it went really well.  I remember feeling tired and slightly nauseous a few times which resulted in some extra naps in the tent but that's about it!
