Just a few snaps from our travels. We got home around noon today, and I promptly started feeling awful. I suspect some virus floating around the airport got me. Here’s hoping it’s a short-lived misery. On the bright side, we had a marvelous vacation.
Here’s Iris on the flight down. We were very fortunate: she slept an hour and a half out of the two hour flight… both ways. For all my complaints about sleep, she’s a great vacationer. Cheerful, interested, content. Pop her in the carrier, and she’s good to go.
Iris LOVES slides. Another reason to look forward to sunny weather. We have a neighborhood play park less than a block from our house. Going to be a good summer.Lazy morning at the marina beach.
Mom in her natural habitat. She was trying to get a good shot of a bald eagle that was circling and swooshing and fishing over the lake. I have been to all kinds of national parks in my life, but I’ve never seen a bald eagle in the wild before. Ah, Disney World. Small World was every bit as fun as I hoped it would be. It took her a few minutes. It’s pretty stimulating to a girl who spends most of her days just chilling at home with her mommy. But there are dolls! Everything moves! The music is so dance-able! Iris loved it. Getting braver. By the time we had to go, she was a pro. She was so into it, in fact, that she threw one of her rare tantrums when it was time to go. Which is fine, because her tantrums are kind of adorable. I probably won’t think so in another year or two of real toddlerhood, but right now… I can’t help it. Her bottom lip pooches, and she throws herself backward with such dramatic flair. Also it doesn’t last long. Her frustration expressed, she moves on pretty quickly.
Also this face gets me every time.
Carl and I also had a great vacation, but we didn’t take so many pictures of ourselves. In our off-duty times (we were vacationing with my folks, and Mom very kindly held down the fort during nap time), we sat outside and drank coffee; walked around the campground; lazed by the pool. It was too short but amazingly nice. A perfect winter pick-me-up.
Next up: surviving February.
