Summer In Full Swing

Oh wow! It's been an entire 3 weeks since I last checked in with the blog. I can't believe it! I am 18 weeks pregnant now, and things have been going really well here.

Our county started opening back up a couple weeks ago for the first time since the pandemic started back in March. We have been enjoying more freedom these past few weeks as we finally were able to venture to some of our favorite summer spots! The first place that we visited was the Zoo! It was really great to be back!

We also visited Waldameer Amusement Park! We had season passed purchased prior to the pandemic and so we were very happy to see that they reopened! Of course, nothing is certain in this time. We know that at any moment things could shut down again. So, for now, we are enjoying all that we can do in the moment, while still being safe and wise with keeping distance from others outside of our circle.

When we first arrived at Waldameer, we found out that Piper joined the 48-inch club! She is now tall enough to ride most every ride in the park by herself! The timing of this couldn't be more perfect since I am 18 weeks pregnant, and can't ride barely any rides with her this summer! During our first trip back, (there have been a couple already) Nick was with us. Having him there to ride some of the bigger rides with her first helped to get her use to them all before I took her by myself a few days later. It worked out really well!

Since my last update, we celebrated the 4th of July, too! While there weren't any public firework displays for us to visit, we did get to picnic with some friends that put on an amazing firework show themselves!

I made some mini cheesecakes for the picnic (recipe from Skinny Taste), which went over really well!

With summer in full swing, I will likely have less updates on the blog but, I will try to keep it updated as best as I can! Coming up next, my first "second trimester update" of weeks 14-18 with this pregnancy! We are only a couple weeks away from finding out the gender, and we can't wait!!
