Well I haven't posted since Ronak (my son) was born which I think I should be cut some slack (as the combination of poopy diapers, sleepless nights, and learning to breastfeed have taken over my life). My angel was born on June 24, 2012 at 7lbs, 7 ounces on the 7th day of the week (a Sunday) - clearly he will be very lucky lol. I can honestly say the first few weeks were very hard, you don't realize how much work these little guys are. I was pretty much stuck at home all day for the first few weeks, which was quite tough for someone always covered in travel bugs. Our first outdoor adventure we had together was when he was just 4 weeks old. We went to Woodbine Beach which is probably the most disgusting beach in Ontario lol. However, I was very happy to go out.
So on to our first vacation (I wonder if it is still called vacation while your on mat leave?), prior to giving birth my 3 besties and I planned to do a cottage trip the weekend of August 24th. We originally planned to go to Blue Mountain but ended up on Lake Joseph in Muskoka due to some hook ups one of my besties significant others had. Boy was this cottage cute and absolutely perfect. Right on the crystal clear Lake Joseph (which I believe is one of the uber posh and luxurious cottage areas in Muskoka). We spent 3 nights enjoying one another's cooking/bbqing skills, played games, and of course soaked in the sun on the beautiful dock. It was perfect because I had the most amazing company, and I felt like I was finally enjoying my own backyard (aka ONTARIO).
I would recommend to all my readers to visit cottageportal or any other cottage website to find the opportunity to stay anywhere in Muskoka.
Below are some pics of our first outing.
