Oliver's First Trip to Florida

The bags are packed, we're ready to go....

Last week, Meredith, Oliver and I drove down to Palm Beach, Florida to stay with my Grandma for a few days. We broke the 600 mile drive up into six or seven different segments, stopped to change nappies (translation = diapers), feed the munchkin and ourselves! It took us about 14 hours each way, but it was well worth it. (See picture below)

Here's a great picture of my grandmother, Oliver's great grandmother, holding him. She loved meeting him, kept commenting on how cute he was, how all he ever did was eat (it seemed like it most days!) and enjoyed showing him off to as many friends as possible (Corrine, Alex and Gloria, and her neighbor Anne).

It wouldn't be a trip to Florida without visiting the beach... Oliver stayed asleep the whole time, must have been the calming ocean waves! (Like his mom, I suppose!) The weather was beautiful, between 75 and 80 every day, with some cloud cover, a nice breeze, couldn't have asked for anything better, except for maybe a few more days there!

We all slept very well... sea air, ocean waves, whatever it was! Mommy enjoyed an afternoon nap snuggling with Ollie each day :) The couch was super comfortable and we slept on it pretty much every night together even with the Graco in the middle of the room.

"Aunt" Meredith was a great sport for sharing the driving, and Grams is already planning on setting her up with a "nice Jewish boy" (aka a grandson of one of her friends).

Tomorrow (3/23) is Oliver's one month check-up... how could it be ONE MONTH already?
