Our First Family Vacation

It was a weekend of firsts.

Baby's first trip to the beach.
First time on sand. First time in the ocean.
First trip out of state.
First time to drink out of a straw!

But wait, I'm getting ahead of myself... ;) I'll spare the chit chat and tell our story with just a few photos. Okay, so maybe more than a few. (I can't help it, I'm smitten and have no control when it comes to this kid.)

All in all, a great first vacation. We can't wait till next summer.

First time in the sand. When he saw it, he promptly sat down and began playing.

Our baby is ONE!

To celebrate, we had a party and then soon after, an amazing photoshoot with Lindsey Whitty of

Oh that girl sure knows how to capture the sweetness of our bebe.

Of course, he was on his best behavior. A little shy, very observant and eyes wide. Nothing was getting past him. His first target? The birthday ballons Lindsey had brought as possible props. She sent them home with us and I caught the boy biting into one two days later. *shaking head* But wait, we were talking about his good behavior...

That smile. Gets me every time. I do believe his father's smile has the same effect. *sigh* Yep, I'm out-numbered. (And lovin' it.)

See? Those wide eyes, just bursting with curiousity and innocence. Wish I could bottle it. Stop time. Keep him on my hip and rock him to sleep every night. I'm sure he'll start protesting one of these days, I just hope not before junior high. ;)

So these are just sneak peeks. We're dying to see the rest.

Be back soon. Until then. xo
