A December to remember

December means lots of things to many people. For me it typically means enjoying time with family. This year it also meant the first Christmas as a married couple, as well as the last Christmas as a “Party of Two”.

The week of Christmas, we had an appointment to see the doctor for the 28 week checkup and ultrasound. This was to be the last ultrasound from here on out we were told, unless they need to verify baby position (the baby is currently breech, but it’s still early).

On the eve of the wedding…

As a wedding gift to Meghan, I got the two of us a nights stay at one of the Croquet Cottages and the English Inn (the location of our wedding).

The cottage included a gas fireplace (more on that in a bit), a Jacuzzi tub, a king bed, and a great view of the croquet field (except it was too late in the season to actually go out and play croquet!).

At the beginning of summer, Meghan and I made the decision to try and start a family. We have read about people having issues trying to conceive as they get up there in their 30’s, luckily we didn’t seem to have that issue. On July 11th, we got confirmation of the good news…

Positive pregnancy test.

Labor Day Weekend

Labor Day was finally here, and that meant one thing, heading to Mackinaw City for the annual family vacation. We’ve been going there nearly every year since I was a baby. My family and I always used to go with my grandparents (dad’s side), and I’m glad it’s a tradition we’ve continued even after they have gone.

Meghan and I took Friday off from work, so after packing the car up, we headed north, but not without taking our pre-trip picture.
