Eloise by the Sea...

Just got back from our first vacation with Eloise... A beach getaway to Southampton, Ontario. You may remember last years trip here.  It was a little different this time around. This year not being pregnant was pretty awesome to say the least but I quickly learned that vacations with babies aren't exactly relaxing. Eloise decided that sleeping on vacation wasn't really something she wanted to do so we didn't do much of it. Not exactly what I had in mind but it was pretty exciting showing her the beach and letting her explore. She was particularly impressed by waves, flags, and grass. The week was exhausting but I'm sure looking back we will remember it fondly. Not living in the same city as our parents make weeks together more special. Here are some pics of our time away.

It started with some much needed unwinding after a long drive. We used a car service which made the journey pretty stress free but travelling anywhere with a baby has its challenges. Have you ever nursed a baby in a car seat while still wearing your seat belt? I have.
 Aww yes, the empty beach...the best part.
 The Uppababy...king of all strollers.

 She's snorkeling with excitement.

  Baby tourist.

 So many patterns!
 I'm obsessed with this hat...all the way from Australia! (thanks Jenny and Ryan)
 She wasn't impressed.
And after a night of no sleep...neither was I.
 But how can you resist that face!

 Old cars, oldies beats, and I'm eating an ice cream cone...pretty solid day.
 Her first sunset but I don't think she cared.
 Lanterns and fireworks make any trip special.

 Post card.


 My new profession? Family stylist.

Hope you're all having a nice day...It's been a while since we've talked. I'm the worst blogger ever. : )

Love Desiree
