Summer Fun

We have had quite the week. Months ago we planned a camping trip with my family. We started this tradition last year. We always have so much fun camping with them. We planned on going up Friday as soon as Aaron got off work. So I was in charge of getting ready. We got most of it ready Thursday night except for the food and packing the car. Well as we were settling down for bed, around 11:30, Bella started having her puppies. I don't know how familiar any of you are about dogs having puppies, but dogs have a puppy an hour. So we knew we were in for a long night! I tried to let Aaron sleep as much as possible because he had to work and I didn't. The first puppy was born at 11:40. An hour later puppy number 2 was born. By this time, I am struggling to stay awake. Aaron was asleep in the living room because it was father away from Bella. After the second puppy was born I knew I had a hour, so I went and lied on the couch. Around 1:30 Bella started crying, and was getting ready for the 3rd puppy. I went in, but she kept crying, it woke Aaron so he came to check on her. As soon as he came in the room, she stopped crying and did her thing. Aaron tried to go back in the living room, but as soon as he left she started crying again. He ended up having to sleep in the bathroom. She didn't make another sound. Around 2:30 she had a forth. Puppy number 3 was a stillborn, but the other 3 are healthy and happy. Aaron got about 3 hours of sleep. I got about 3 1/2 hours. I woke up on Friday early to bring my Jeep into Big O Tires to get a new tire. When I got home I finished getting everything ready, however I couldn't pack the car, because it wasn't home. So I had to wait till Aaron got home so we could go pick up the Jeep. So as soon as he pulled in we ran to Big O. When we got home Aaron got the dogs ready...puppies and all, while I packed up the Jeep. All thous years of Tetris really paid off. We got to Current Creek about 5:30. We had a nice relaxing weekend with my family. We didn't get much sleep, but it was a lot of fun. I will do another post with pictures about the camping trip. I started reading "Twilight"...I will let you know how I feel about it when I am done...in about a year! ; )
