Beach Trip Part II

Winslow did NOT know what to think of the beach at first....look at his little hands and feets trying not to touch the sand.  Cutest thing EVER!  He was kind of whiny and pouty for 5 or so minutes and looked at me like "get me out of here!"  but then it clicked... this sand isn't going to hurt me!

Once he finally got used to it, he loved it.  That's my boy.  He'll be a beach lover like his momma. 

He got lots of loving from his Uncle Grant who, by the way, is single started medical school this week! 

This never happens, but he fell asleep on his momma! I was thrilled.  He usually only sleeps in his crib.  The beach is hard work, guys!

Of course, he was just left on the beach with no one to play with the whole time.  Or, his grandma and grandpa wouldn't put him down.  ;)  You decide which one happened.  

 (This was after eating a popsicle)

That face.  He loves making "boy noises" as I like to call it. 

 Clearly, he didn't like getting his bum on the sand.   What a poor baby. 

And that pretty much sums up our week down south.  He loved it, stayed up way past his bedtime (duh, it's vacation) and didn't sleep at night...go figure.  

Next up:  Texas!

Beach Trip Part 1

So this was the first trip I have taken without hubby.  It was hard, but not horrible.  I had nightmares that my child would scream on the flight because he couldn't get down to play (he will not sit still for ANYTHING) but thankfully, he was entertained the entire time with books, puffs, cheerios, and the lady beside me who was trying to sleep but he kept poking her.  Oops.

Also, I could not have survived without my Tula (the baby carrier you see)  I have an Ergo and a Tula and I think the Tula is much more comfortable for both of us.  It covers his back more, and give me more support as well.  And plus, it has foxes on the front.  #win #imobsessed

I knew he probably wouldn't sleep much because, well, that would be too easy, but he did take a catnap on one of the flights. Look at this angel face. 

Look at those sweet toes finding their way up. Ha!
We finally made it after a flight cancellation literally RUNNING to the gate to catch our first flight (THANK you Tula, again) and a 3 hour delay. UGH.  But my dad was there to fetch us, and of course, sat in the back with Winslow..  :) 
We finally got to the beachhouse and I sent little man to bed...and of course he woke up 2039824 times during the night and wouldn't go back to sleep at 5:30am..so what did we do?  Take a walk on the beach and watch the sunrise.  It was beautiful.

 Stay put for part two of our beach trip...coming tomorrow! :)

Grandpa's Truck

While we were visiting my dad and stepmom in Texas, we did a mini-photoshoot with Grandpa's 1954 Dodge. 

 Look how cute!  

 He didn't like the baby goat because it kept wailing in his little ear. Bless his heart! So we got the "toddler" goat (Who is like 6 months older) and he didn't mind him. haha!

LOTS more photos from our trip...we have a lot to cover!  The beach, family, the farm..stay tuned!
