Sand and Army Trips

Ladybug and Granddaddy

Ladybug and Daddy

I'm not so sure about this!

We all were invited to a wedding in Norfolk this past weekend so we decided to take advantage of the trip and take Ladybug to Virginia Beach. This wasn’t her first beach experience but it was Chris’ first time to see her on the beach. Granddaddy met up with us and was there to witness her first step! As for Ladybug’s impression of the beach and ocean; she wasn’t too excited about the water but boy did she love the sand! You would have thought it was the best tasting stuff on earth!

We’ll be headed to Florida tomorrow to attend one of Chris’ friends wedding. Chris only gets to see his friends from the Army about once a year so Ladybug and I are just along for the ride.

We’ll be flying into Orlando where we’ll meet up with Chris’ friend Allen and his wife Michelle. I’ll be staying with Michelle while Chris and Allen head down to Ft. Meyer to meet up with the rest of the guys (I foresee no sleep for them). Michelle and I will head down later in the week and then we’ll all travel to Sarasota where the wedding will be held. Then it’s back to Orlando and home to Virginia.

It’s going to be a quick trip but should be fun and Ladybug’s first plane ride!

Ear Infections and Vacations

Ladybug had her first ear infection in April, on our way home from Florida. It cleared up with out a problem. Then in June she developed another one. Well here we are two weeks later and at Patient First on a Sunday afternoon with, guess what, another ear infection. Hopefully this round of antibiotics will knock it out.

Other than having a not feeling well child Fourth of July was fun, we spent some time at the lake with Chris’ brother and his family. No fireworks this year since we were on our way back home the night of the Fourth.

With this track record we’re worried about our trip back to Florida at the end of the month, especially since it will be on a plane!
