Again, summer is my season. I love the relaxed feel, the sunshine and of course the vacations! We went to California with my family and the boys LOVED it. The plane was really exciting (obviously), the sand tasted yummy (gross) and they were enthralled with the ocean!
I was a little worried about the flight. I knew Paul would be okay because he likes to watch movies and he is obsessed with planes. I was right. Charlie was our wildcard. My friend gave me a leftover drink ticket which I promptly used to order a bloody mary. Nothing can be that bad with vodka and tomato juice. Again, I was right.
Charlie was just fine on the plane. He bounced around from person to person and even fell asleep at the end. We were feeling pretty proud of ourselves until we started driving through the mountains of Mendocino. Then Charlie got carsick. SIX times. At one point I just sat in the back seat with a clean diaper under his mouth and told Ryan to just keep going. We just had to get it over with.
However, once we were there is was a great vacation. I love that little boys are thrilled to chase birds, throw rocks, and build sand castles. The drive back was much more successful as in no one got sick and Charlie was a little more restless on the plane, but we made it out with little to no judgement from other passengers and I call that a win-win.
Thanks for my dad for taking all of these pictures.
|He is so blonde and so cute!|
|The windup to play croquet. In case you wanted to know what that looked like.|
|Someone tries to keep up!|
|Life is good!|
|Sometimes all you need are rocks.|
|Eating Sand. Yum?|
This is what you do to your big brother when he won't pay attention to you!
