Let me just say that since Groupon came along life has gotten a little more fun for half the price! And Im always down for saving money! I wouldnt say Im cheap but Im more on the frugal side! Anyway our good friends Mink & David got a deal on groupon for a trip to Catalina Island & they invited us to come along. Luckily it fit into Jacks new work schedule perfectly!
This was Lil jacks first time on a big boat... Well any boat so he was totally stoked! Thank God no one got sea sick! We were poppin Dramamine like candy!
We decided to have a camp out instead of staying at the hotels. Theres no other way to enjoy the smells of nature! The weather was perfect up until the night time, we froze our butts off! It didn;t help that I had to get up & pee 3times a night! Jack was a total trooper & walked me down to the bathrooms every time! Note to self: dont ever go camping while pregnant! The nights are no fun!
There were a pack of deer just chilling around the campsite & lil jack was able to feed the baby one! We named him Bambi of course! It was all cute until they snuck into our dinner while we were in our tents!
Walking back & forth into town took a toll on my body so i was thrilled when the guys decided to rent a boat for the day! I was able to sit back & relax!
Goofin off at the Lil shops...
All in all a good trip! But Im sure glad to be home in my bed where the bathroom is close by! Hope you all had a good weekend! Now back to reality!
