Kings Canyon

We got home from Bear Lake late Thursday night and left for Kings Canyon late Friday night. Nathan likes to drive through the night because then we are there in the morning right when everyone is waking up. Unfortunately we left5-6 hours later than usual and we were exhausted with 3 hours still to go. We have a goal to NEVER leave that late again. This is us at the river after driving all night and taking a 2 hour nap. I think we look pretty good considering. You might recognize the view from previous posts because this is where Nathan proposed to me, so romantic, so planed to make me want to come back every year.
We had scones one morning for breakfast and Parker couldn't help but get powdered sugar all over his little face.

Parker loved the hammock-last year we would use it to take a nap with him this year he just wanted to play in it. We are sad our summer vacations are over but its been a busy summer so we are ready for a calm fall. Is that possible with the up and coming birth of our new baby?? Who by the way should be making his debut a week before his due date because of my scheduled c-section. SCARY! I'm excited and nervous and happy and sad all in one. I'm crying more because I feel bad for both of my little boys. I feel like both of them are getting the raw end of the deal. Parker is still so small so he still needs me so much. And it seems like lately he knows it is coming because he has been such a mamma's boy. I have to stop thinking about that or I will start crying again. They will be great friends and it will be a lot of fun, and a lot of work. Now I'm off to bed I need some sleep!

I didn't leave a comment, because I didn't want to look "uninvited." I only knew your site from Julie's, and did want to pry. But I will take the comment on my blog as an invitation!!
So, you are so cute pregnant. I never did see you pregnant with Parker, so it has been fun to see the pictures of you with this next one.
I can't believe how active you are while pregnant. I never liked to do much while I was pregnant, especially not camping!!
You are such a fun mom!!
