harper’s first vacation

On Drew’s birthday, the day before the 4th of July, we boarded a plane for Harper’s first flight, first vacation, and first time meeting a lot of the extended family. She did pretty awesome on the flight – she slept the first leg (and holding her made my arm go numb) and charmed everyone. She even waved to another baby for the first time!

We stayed at Great Grandpa and Great Grandma’s house – which is a fun place to visit for a little one. Lots to do and very scenic. Harper loved all the new toys to play with, all the birds chirping, and all the new people from whom to get cheek kisses. She experienced a big puppy for the first time (their yellow lab was the most well behaved lab I’ve ever seen.) And ate homemade food from Great Grandma’s garden!

On the 4th, we went to Drew’s cousin’s house and hung out with a bunch of his cousins and their kids. Harper loved watching all the big kids scurry around.

Harper met Audrey (Drew’s cousin Annie’s daughter who is a month older)! We had our family baby shower together last summer!

Then we went swimming and Harper fell asleep on the way. At least that made it easier to lather her with sunscreen.

The family also threw a wedding shower for Kyle and Brittany and baby shower for Drew’s cousin Aaron and Chrissy. With this size family, there are showers of some kind every summer and it’s best to combine them! Harper got to meet some more aunts, uncles and cousins!
