Vacay Photo Overload

Sunday, May 5, 2013
As promised, here are some of my favorite pictures from our mini getaway to Florida!

It took me a while to get the lighting right and settings adjusted on my camera once we arrived. I really haven't used it in a couple months so getting back in to the swing of things caused the first few pictures to be a little sub par however, I couldn't not share this first picture with you. She rocks that backwards chambray top like it was on correctly, don't you think? Go me.

I had decided that I wasn't going to bed on our first night until I got Parker out to the beach! Her reaction to seeing the ocean for the first time is something I have looked forward to for months. Of course I never thought that she would love the taste of sand as much as she did, but I guess that is all part of the experience. She was exhausted earlier than usual and desperately looked like she needed a bath.

...been there.

Which brings us to another first. Sink bath times. Princess Sweaty Head was LOVING it.

The next day we were back out on the beach so Parker could get her sand fix and mama could get an adorable photo opp of this bathing beauty. Matt took over with the camera and I was thoroughly impressed. I always give him a hard time about his photos, but must be he's been picking up some tips!

When I said Parker loves, sand... I mean she really loves it. I think she at least got a good five little hand fulls before we finally picked her up and realized that there was no stopping her. Something similar to my relationship with m&ms.

We also discovered that she is petrified of the waves. She likes to stay shore bound but once the tide rolls in and its suddenly all around her, she just couldn't handle.

My pretty-pudgy-sand face-puckered lip love bug!

I hope you all had a great weekend! Ours was spent with tons of friends and family. I used today to clean a couple of rooms throughout the house and we couldn't resist a walk since it was so beautiful out. I walked her to the park where she had her first experience on a swing. No swing face here! She couldn't get enough. We also gave her a sippy cup for the first time today. She mainly just swings it around and squawks at it but hopefully down the road she'll get the hang of it.

Here's to Sunday fun day!x


  1. Love the photos. Especially when she's terrified of the waves and you're cracking up :P. So cute! Keep sharing :)PS.. I ate sand until I was about 8. Just ask my mom. Something about that gritty texture..

  2. Aren't they something? Fast forward 20 years from now and she'll be on the show 'Weird Obsessions' for eating sand. Then I'd imagine it wouldn't be as cute as it is now. You turned out just fine, so I'm sure I have nothing to be worried about! x

  3. it looks like lulu had the best time! love the photos of the both of you... you are a gorge mom!!! xxoxo

    1. Aw thank you! We had a blast. I really think the warmer weather does something to a baby that is unlike anything else. Hope you had a wonderful birthday pretty girl! x
