brave or crazy

We survived our first family vacation with a baby! Last Wednesday, we flew to Philadelphia and spent two days at Dan's parents' beach house in New Jersey. We left there Saturday morning and drove 6 hours to my grandparents' house in upstate New York where we stayed for another two days. Then we drove back to Philly on Tuesday and flew home on Wednesday. A whirlwind vacation for sure!!

Mae did wonderfully on her first flight... sleeping through takeoff and landing and only fussing a little during the beverage service. (Why are soda cans so loud??) GranE picked us up from the airport, and we arrived at the house mid-afternoon. We were soon joined by Batman (Grandad), Aunt Colleen, and Uncle Tim. Mae donned her "I make a big splash" outfit that Dan bought for her and we set off to introduce her to the ocean.

Thanks to Kelsey, Mae was properly outfitted for a beachy vacation with a little sun hat and an adorable watermelon swim suit. I just melted every time we put her in it! Painfully cute. We tried dipping her toes in the water a few times during our trip and she had the same reaction each time... disinterested grumpiness. Considering it could have been extreme screaminess, I am calling this a win!

Mae loved meeting her Uncle Tim for the first time! They caught up on the news together.

She has a lot of growing to do to catch up to him!

Saturday morning, we packed up all our stuff (how do babies need so much equipment??) and drove to upstate New York to visit my grandparents. More on that in my next post!
