‘Twas a whirlwind trip. (I refuse to call it a vacation.) The ladies did so well being toted all over, though Vivienne made it overwhelmingly clear that she loathes her carseat.
We spent lots of time with Mimi and Papa, we went to the zoo!, Vivienne was a planned patient at Flower Hospital, we met a new baby!, we visited our first-ever American pediatrician (who was Syrian), we introduced Vivienne to our family members, we met some new family members, we celebrated birthdays, we visited old friends… it was a full time.
Here are just a FEW of my favorite pics.
Of course, as always, I didn’t even think to get a family shot.
Ah well, one day.
Here are just a few pics from our time away…
Vivienne looks like a little doll.
Senior picture pose.
Where did my baby go?
Petal remains Lila’s best friend.
Vivienne doesn’t have a Petal, she has a glow-worm sea horse. And she LOVES it. Well, for right now.
This sums up my girls.
Complete and total opposites.
Lila loved, loved, loved the zoo.
(And I swear she has more shirts than that pink princess one below. Bottom line: she likes to wear it all the time. We have two of them.)
Riding the choo-choo at the zoo.
Oh my. It was too cute.
She was literally waving and saying hello to the animals.
It was beyond nap time.
Vivienne was in the stroller and we didn’t want to risk moving her… lest she scream more.
(Are you in awe of our tans? Yes, we live in Mexico. Yes, we wear sunscreen almost constantly. Sun damage isn’t reversible. Can I get an amen?)
Love that smile.
My grandma was introduced to Vivienne for the first time on this trip. 🙂
Someone in the family loves to have her hair blow-dried, hence this ever-fashionable blow-out.
And, finally… Lila and Vivienne thought they were especially tricky by attempting to eat all of the puffs while I was in another room.
They’re cohorts already.
During this visit, I really think they discovered one another. The playing together? It has commenced.
