f-a-bo-u-l-ous "holla back young'n--woot woooo"

Remember that song? You don't?.....shoot.

What a Fabulous trip. Fabulous weather. Fabulous friends. Fabulous family. Fabulous beach. Fabulous food. Fabulous drinks. Fabulous sun. Fabulous lilly. Fab. Fab. FAaaa-aB!

Flying with an infant = SCARY. I was so worried I would be THAT crazy mother with THAT screaming infant. I was prepared to get dirty looks, evil comments, and eye rolls. But you know what? I was pleasantly surprised. People aren't the evil airplane baby haters that I thought they would be. There is good in the world!!!! Lilly did great and flirted with everyone she saw --flashing that adorable mushy squishy gum overloaded grin. Those of you worried about flying with a baby-- If dramatic-emotional-crazy-control-freak-momma can do it, SO CAN YOU. Bring bottles....lots of bottles. Lilly drank 4 in 6 hours. Flying apparently makes babies ravenous. Who knew?
Our days consisted of...

morning strolls on the beach

deciding between pool or beach...beach or pool

staking claim on beach chairs, only to have them stolen, stealing them back, stank eyeing the evil cranky over tanned old ladies who stole them

working on project GET TAN 2010

putting lilly down for a nap. putting her BACK down for a nap 10 min later. rocking her BACK to sleep.

  5. Sooo cute! Lilly looks like she had a great time, can't wait to take my little one to the beach for the first time, there is something so cute about little girls in sun glasses, hats, and swim suits with diaper butts :) Glad she flew well for you! Good job brave mama!

  6. These are fabulous pictures!! I want to go to the beach now!! Looks and sounds like you had a wonderful time! Seriously, you have a beautiful family!! Your little girl is a doll!

  7. So glad to hear that flying with a babe isn't as awful as we think. I'm flying home by myself with Makenzie in 3 weeks! Pretty nervous! Also, we will be going to California in August and Makenzie will be the age that Lilly is now so good to know what I have to look forward to! Gotta love their chubby little bods in swim suits! She is so cute!
