Wow! I just looked back to see my last post was July 4th! Have you missed us? :) We have just returned from our 11 day summer vacation in sunny California. As with all good vacations it ended too quickly yet left us exhausted. And now I'm looking through pictures and remembering all the times we laughed, sang (if you've spent any time with a baby in the car you KNOW there was singing), cried, and yelled at the GPS. :)
We returned Tuesday, disheveled and jet-lagged (okay...pun intended...but really the poor baby handled it all really well until the flight home).
We loved our visit and felt sorry to leave, yet at the same time happy to be home. We had SO much going on the last 2 weeks and Jet had so many new experiences that I'm predicting quite a few "back-up blogs" before I can catch up to the present - so that being said I'd better get started!
It will be fun - like telling a story.
I only hope I can organize it all in my head! I'm telling you after going through over 1,000 (yes we took that many) pictures and deleting all the closed eyes, blurry babies, "yikes I look scary in that one" and "what was I trying to take a picture of?" pictures...I'm a little blurry headed - but we'll see if over the next few days I can't manage to make sense of our marvelous, magical experiences. :)
While I organize my thoughts (and keep a close eye on my daredevil of a 13 month old) here are a few pics from Jet's first flight to get this story started.
So...how do you keep a baby busy for 4 hours?
Read him a book.
And when that 5 minutes of contentment is up.
Give him a pair of sunglasses.
Yeah...that's more like it.
To be continued...
I hope the wait for the next post doesn't feel as long as the plane ride home...lol.
