We ended up going to Island Park, ID on an impromptu trip late Friday night. Being 37 1/2 weeks pregnant last Friday, I was complaining that I couldn't go with my family to my very favorite vacation spot. We were playing cards with the Grandparents and this is what transpired:
Dallas: Let's go to Island Park in the morning.
Me: Ha ha.
Dallas: Actually, let's get in the car and go tonight!
Me: Tell you what, if I win this card game then we'll leave tonight.
You also must know that I was behind in said game and we were on the last hand. Lo and behold, I drew the card I needed, went out and caught everyone in the process, making me the winner of the game!
Then we left Scooter with them, headed home, packed, and were on the road in 45 minutes. 5 hours later we were bunking down in my parents trailer at 3:30 AM for a weekend filled with rain, fishing, and animal sightseeing.
Even though I was sick, and uncomfortable, it was totally worth it! We saw a wolf in Yellowstone (which I have never seen before), a coyote hunting, and a grizzly bear up close floating down the river. Will loved "Old Fakeful" (as he calls it), as well as the stinky mud pots.
Was it kind of stupid to be so far away from my doctor when I'm so close to delivery? Yes, but it was just the trip we needed as a family before our little lady shows her face. And, hey, I'm still pregnant so obviously it wasn't a problem.
Here's some pics:
