Baby’s First Vacation

We’re back from our first family road trip! Just in case you are ever wondering, the answer is no, Veronica does not sleep in the car. Not on the way there and not on the way back.

She had a blast hanging with her older cousin Alex. They went to the pool and the park and the biggest children’s museum in the universe.

Veronica found a dollhouse and thought it was built just for her, until she found that the accommodations were a bit small:

There was a carousel ride (which was declared “fun” even though it was endured with this solemn face the entire time):

Then Veronica took an apprenticeship with a great master painter:

On the way home, she ordered the vegetable platter for lunch. Her vegetables were macaroni n cheese and mashed potatoes.

And then this was our view of our darling daughter for the rest of the trip, and what I can only assume we’ll be seeing for the next sixteen and a half years:

Overall I’d say our first family vacation was a success.

Thanks to Alex and his mom and dad for sharing their home and their time and their delicious cooking with us!

    Alex has finally concluded that “ronica” did not steal any of his toys and take them home with her. What a relief. Now, comes the realization that he no longer has anyone to blame for messes around the house.

    I love the “artists at work” pic. What creativity, what intensity, what fun!
