We’re going back to California next month for my baby shower! It’s settled and the tickets have been purchased – Kev and I are flying back for about a week in mid-July, as my sister (in-law, but she’s more like my sister!) and my best friend are throwing me a shower at my mother-in-law’s house!
I am so happy about visiting and getting to see everyone, and I am touched that they are throwing me a baby shower. Since we’re going to be there about a week, Kev and I (and possibly the rest of his family) are planning to go for a day trip to Sequoia and King’s Canyon National Park, where the world’s tallest trees are!
I’ve always wanted to go there, and we never got a chance to visit before we moved, so it’s as good a time as any. True, I won’t be able to do any of my normal hard-core hiking, but I can still enjoy the beauty of nature and take some of the easy trails.
Even though I am so excited to see everyone, I have to admit I am not at all happy about flying. It’s not that I’m scared of flying (quite the opposite!), it’s that I really, really didn’t want to have to fly while I am pregnant. I know it’s considered okay, if your doctor says your good to go, but I still have my own personal issues about flying while pregnant.
Either way, though, I know the only way to see our families is to fly (and that’s worth it!), so I’m just going to bring what I need to stay as comfortable as possible, get on and pray everything will be okay.
