Weekend Getaway + Guess What?!

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy.

We spent the weekend in Cascade Idaho with my husband’s family. The weather there was perfect; low to mid 70’s and cloudy. It was such a nice break from the summer heat we’ve had in the Boise area. It was also great to spend time with family that we don’t see often (they were visiting from Cali).

The kids loved it (3 of the boys are about the same age). Here’s a peek into our trip and make sure to get to the bottom Β of the post for some very exciting news!

Cascade Vacation

We spent the most time on the beach. it wasn’t warm enough to swim but we enjoyed the fresh air, let the kids explore and get dirty and even did some fishing (although we didn’t catch much).

Cascade Vacation-9

…. πŸ™‚

Don’t worry, we didn’t travel this way.Β My son just loves holding babies. These were all of the kiddos on the trip. All boys.

Cascade Vacation-15

Our vacation rental was right by the beach which was perfect. We walked there a couple times a day.

Cascade Vacation-12

Cascade Vacation-20

Cascade Vacation-7

Cascade Vacation-4

… πŸ™‚

Cascade Vacation-8

Cascade Vacation-3

I was in charge of breakfast so here’s what was on the menu:

Morning 1:

Cantaloupe, cheese, english muffins, cucumbers, nalesniki with all the fixins (cheese crepes that I prepared before we left home), scrambled eggs, bacon, coffee and OJ.

Cascade Vacation-10

Morning 2:

Buttermilk pancakes with maple syrup, homegrown raspberries, fresh peaches, cantaloupe, sour cream & homemade jam, then hashbrowns, scrambled eggs, cheese, coffee, and orange juice. I love breakfast the most these days because I start feeling worse throughout the day (more on that below).

Cascade Vacation-7

Here’s the crew at breakfast time.

Cascade Vacation-2

My sis-in-law, Nadia was in charge of all the other meals and she did a fantastic job! Thank you so much Nadia for all the time, energy and love you put into our menu . Everyone helped which was so nice. I loved sharing elbow space with these gals.

Cascade Vacation-16

My son insisted that one of his aunties read to him at bedtime. I loved this sweet scene πŸ™‚

Cascade Vacation-6

We also spent alot of cozy moments on the deck overlooking the lake, just chatting it up πŸ™‚

Cascade Vacation-5

Here’s our party of 12.

Cascade Vacation-3

On our last day, we checked out and went to a nearby hot springs. It was nice. I sat in the large “kiddie” pool the whole time but it was so relaxing. The water was just right.

And this is what uncles are for:

Cascade Vacation

So, the great, exciting and super awesome news (for us anyways)…

There’s a bun in the oven! That’s right, I’m pregnant! We’ve been working (I won’t elaborate) on this one for a long timeΒ :-O. I honestly think stress was a big contributor in making it hard to get pregnant; going from finishing up nursing school, to the big β€˜ol nursing boards, then training and starting a new career on nights on a very stressful floor no less (Telemetry)…. When I finally decreased my hours; within a month, I was preggers!

Cascade Vacation-10

I’m so happy and excited to share my joy with you. I’ll be keeping you posted here on occasion and more frequently on my my Instagram, Facebook and Twitter channels (for those of you that like that sort of thing ;)). Anyway, God’s timing couldn’t be more perfect. I am 12 weeks and due March 7th. I’m also super curious to know if it will be a girl or boy.

Our 5-yr old son is probably the most excited. He does the sweetest things for the baby already; like practicing swaddling his teddy and saving bites of food from his plate saying it’s β€œfor the baby” as he scoots it my way. We are so blessed to be pregnant and I’m immensely thankful to God for this blessing.

Cascade Vacation-4

It’s been a little bumpy so far with the food aversions. I couldn’t stand the onions and garlic being in the pantry so we moved them into the laundry room. Now I hate my laundry room. I feel great in the morning but sort of crumby in the evening.

All of this makes it more challenging to blog, but I’m still plugging along because I don’t want any of you to be hungry in the mean time ;). Love you all and please keep our family in your prayers through this pregnancy. Thanks friends!

    Hello Natasha,
    I came across your blog on Pinterest. So excited to find your blog, browse your recipes and read about your family. I’m hoping to learn to cook some of your recipes.
    Congratulations on Baby #2.
    Most of all I’m thankful to God to find a blog of a Christian Slavic woman who loves to cook. It’s an encouragement for me to see God mentioned on your blog. Praise the Lord for all that you do. May He continue to shower you & your family with many blessings.

    Congrats! I had bad food aversions and “morning” sickness with my baby. At 8 weeks we went to Ukraine to visit husband’s parents, and I couldn’t eat ANYTHING! It was too early so I couldn’t even tell them why. Mother in law was upset and thought I didn’t like her food. (But was happy when she found out the real reason.)

    I heard that more food sensitivity etc means it’s a girl…I’m sure you’ll be happy either way, but maybe there is a daughter in your future πŸ™‚

    Best of luck to you with the future bundle of joy! Reply

    Congrats Natasha!!!! It took us a long time to get preggers as well, 2 years. We prayed about it, and all I can say is God knows the best timing. I also believe stress was a huge issue for me. My baby is already 4 months old ☺️ May God continue to bless your beautiful family. Praying that your pregnancy is easy and uncomplicated.  Reply

    I had a little hunch something was up…maybe it was just my pregnancy hormones though. πŸ˜‰ I am beyond thrilled for this excited news of your expanding family. Praying for a healthy rest of the pregnancy and birth. <3 Reply

    Congratulations on your pregnancy πŸ™‚

    I have 1 year old boy, and I was so sick for the first twelve weeks. I barely survived on bread and kefir. But it got better! πŸ™‚

    Also, I love your blog and your recipes. I am from Bosnia so I can relate to the food on here. I try to cook for my boys as much as possible. I actually made fruit trifle from your blog on Saturday and it was the bomb!!! πŸ™‚

    Best Wishes! Reply

    YAY!! How adorable are you with your little bump! Congratulations and sorry about feeling lousy, it was also my experience both times. πŸ™ It’s not your first time and I am sure you know that resting makes a huge difference in how you feel, so put your feet up whenever you can and let your men serve you! Reply

    This is soo exciting!! Congrats! Kudos to you for keeping up with blogging. I HATED almost any food for the first 16 weeks. Had to take a 2 month blogging break. But from then on everything was perfect up to the perfect 7 week old I now have πŸ˜€
    Hopefully you start feeling better soon as well. God bless!
    Btw, looks like you had a fantastic time Reply

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically
    tweet my newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for
    a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates. Reply
