FL Trip-Part One

Well, I just got back from my first hiatus to FL. Part 2 will come at the end of May when we take a family vacation. I definitely came home from this trip more tired than when I left. Welcome to vacation with children. The first three days were crazy. Graham picked up a virus a few days before we left which landed me in the Med-Express the morning we were to fly out. Fun. They put him on a antibiotic for a bronchial and ear infection. It was so sad. As if that wasn't bad enough, he shared it with Parker who had worse symptoms than Graham. He lost his voice for three days. I feel slightly guilty that there was a part of me who enjoyed the quiet, however, I did not enjoy staying up all night with a wheezing 2 year old. Both were feeling much better about the time we had to come home. The last two days, the boys were feeling good enough to gallivant outside and Parker took advantage of the pretty weather. He loved the hammock. This face scares me. I'm never sure what's coming next after i get this look.
This is a sweet face though.
Graham got up on his hands and knees for the first time while there. He gets his knees moving but hasn't quite figured out how to make his hands go forward. So cute.

Want to see something fun? Well, OK. When Parker was 7 months, Heidi took pictures of him at my parent's house. I wasn't able to get professional pics of Graham this trip, but I took a few sentimental shots with my little point and shoot. They are definitely brothers, eh?
Parker was chubbier, but they still look very much alike.

The best part of the trip was on Friday when I got to co-host my best friend's baby shower. It turned out super cute. As soon as I get the pictures, I'll devote a whole post to the shin-dig. Heidi looked flippin cute in her gauzy white summer dress, such a beautiful pregnant gal. We also got to finally see her completed nursery for the new baby Lincoln. Check it out! Ridiculous, huh?

The trip home in the plane was a little trickier than the way down because the boys weren't lethargic from a fever. Parker also felt the need to pee twice on the plane. It's a sight to see all three of us go in that miniature sad excuse for a bathroom. It's an interesting experience to say the least.  Besides missing MeMaw and Papaw, we are all glad to be home. Can't wait to post the shower...stay tuned!

I am anxiously waiting the baby shower post- I bet it turned out so cute! The pictures of Park and Graham are creepy! That was smart thinking to do while you were down there. I like the new background on your blog too, very nice. Glad you are home and hopefully you are resting and FL part 2 will be a nice, calm vacation for you. But if FL part 3 with the Hargraves' happens, it will go to a whole new level, lol!
