Vacation 2011: Part One

I realize I have been MIA for the past two weeks but it has been for a very good reason. Vacation! First preparing for and then during it. In fact, vacation will continue for another week which is awesome. I have been having some internet challenges but my dad hooked me up. Every other year for the past 6 years or so DH and I have been taking 2 week vacations. Yes, it's a long time but it really gives us a chance to decompress. This time around we also had a chance to visit with family.

DH and Charlie drove from Charlotte to Springfield, MA last Friday. Being a smart mom, Cameron and I flew to Hartford to meet them. Could you imagine having a toddler on a 12 hour straight drive? No, me either which is why we flew.

Cameron has been having a great time and thankfully she has been napping and sleeping generally well. Eating? More like snacking but I am in vacation mode and am trying not to be too freaked out by the fact that the last time she ate a vegetable was a week ago.

I will write a more detailed synopsis of our vacation in later posts but for!

Here Cameron and her daddy try out her new scooter which was donated by her cousins. As you can see, it was a hit.
It was really hot for about two days while we were in Springfield. Like Charlotte hot. The only difference? No air conditioning. Hence Cameron's wardrobe below.
Cameron enjoys her first experience at Friendly's. Needless to say, the ice cream was a big hit.
Cameron with her two cousins. They loved hanging out with her and gave me some nice downtime to relax and spend time talking to adults.
Here are all the cousins enjoying ice cream on the porch. I think Cameron has had ice cream more often on this vacation than her entire life combined previously!
Cameron attempts to play croquette. Very unsuccessfully, I might add.
Cameron helps her cousin practice her reading.

Cameron really has some beautiful hair! She is so cute. BTW - I've done 14 hour drives with toddlers - it isn't bad if you plan correctly and have lots of activities in the car.
