Back From North Carolina!

So much has gone on since my last post I am not even sure where to start! If you have been reading along you know that last Wednesday Lilah, Jason and I left for North Carolina for a multi-legged family vacation.

After a five and half hour drive down to Washington, NC we arrived around 4pm at Jason's Grandmother's house. This was the first time that Grandma Boig (Great Grandma Boig to Lilah!) was to met Lilah - who is her first great-grandchild. You can see from the photos that they got along quite well and Lilah was a little angel (except for the part where I would have liked to sleep a bit at night).

We spend a few great days relaxing in the beautiful weather and Lilah was so relaxed she even forgot she wasn't suppose to let us know she could hold her own bottle.

We left Washington and Grandma Boig on Friday to head over two hours to the Durham, NC airport just in time to pick up my mom who was in town for the next leg of our trek - Great Uncle Bob's 90th Bday party.

We stayed at the most amazing hotel, and Friday night was just spent catching up with relatives I hadn't seen in years and years and even more years. Lilah got her first experience in a pool - as Jason kept saying "It's just a bit bath!"

I think after this experience I need to renew my hunt for swimming lessons for Lilah - she had a blast.

Saturday was Bob's Bday part at the Carolina Inn where we all dressed up, had fun and enjoyed then sun. Then more partying and relaxing on Saturday night and after a quick trip to what is now my favorite southern market back up five and a half hours to our place on Sunday night.


Overall Lilah was amazing, only cranky on the way back from NC in the car - but so was I after so much time cooped up in my seat. So in the famous words of...well someone..."A good time was had by all".


Next post - Lilah's six month professional photos are in and amazing!

Hi, I'm Audrey. I found your blog through MommyFest. Though it's long over, I'm loving meeting others and enjoying some great blogs.

These photos are great. My own daughter had a great grandmother until she was 5. My 2nd daughter is named after her, as she had passed away before my 2nd daughter was born.
