James and I began this blog at the very beginning of our pregnancy with Wyatt to share and update our new adventures as we became pregnant and start the new season of parenthood. Sixteen weeks into pregnancy, I had to go into surgery to ensure our son would not come too early and shortly after, we found out Wyatt has Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH). This is our humble attempt at being transparent and hopefully sharing the joys and love of Christ through this roller coaster ride we're on. And now to share even more with the new miracle on the way.

To Baby Moon or not...

James and I are considering going on one last vacation before our little one arrives. We know going down to one income won't allow us to have quite has much in savings as we normally like to keep and here we are. We don't want to go big on this trip or anything but we do want something a little different then our normal. We've been to Colorando (camping/white water rafting), Jamaica, Arkansas (the lake), Hawaii, and Mexico.... Can you tell we like the water and sunshine?!?! We discussed a cruise during Spring Break but it stresses me out trying to pick and plan one in that one litle week window. Besides, the price is cut in half if we wait until the Fall. So, where should we go? I'm thinking nature, relaxation and nothing requiring a passport. Oh, and some charm and history would be nice too. Anyone have any suggestions? We are taking ideas!


  1. I highly recommend Michigan! You could go to Mackinac Island: http://www.mackinacisland.org/. Mackinac Island is only accessible by ferry and there are no motor vehicles. There are tons of things to do in the area. Michigan is beautiful in the summer. Tons of lakes and things to do. You can drive to any part of Michigan in one day. I'm from there, so Eric and I got married and Honeymooned there. We stayed at these cabins (which aren't too far from Mackinac Island.

  2. That is actually a good idea. Lots of charm and history, and maybe you could pop in and visit w your Aunt Edna and Uncle John in Lansing. There are also all the Vandenbelts in Holland and Grand Rapids, too.
