A Florida Trip...

This past weekend we took Scotty on his first plane ride! We went to Sarasota, Florida to visit The McGinley’s (Blake, Amber, Jace, Ty, and Paigie). Amber was my college roommate. She is a wonderful person and it was so special for our families to spend the weekend together. I can’t say it was the most relaxing time, but that’s what you get with 3 boys under the age of 2!
Friday evening after the guys played golf, we had dinner at the pier. The only way to describe dinner was pure chaos. See pictures below for a glimpse of the action!
Saturday after golf for the guys, naps for the kiddos, and a little bit of relaxation for the moms, we headed to the beach. First things first….poop in our little swimmer. The only one mom had packed so we had to ditch the diaper and pray for the best! Second, we had to try the yummy white stuff that was everywhere! I don’t think he liked it too much, but for some reason he just kept trying it! He also got in the salty ocean water with his daddy and splashed around. He worked up an appetite and later shared a sandy hot dog with the boys. He ended the night with throw- up on Dad! Ha!
Sunday we played all morning, and did some supported walking! After lunch, we headed back to Texas. Scotty had a difficult time on the plane ride home because he was so tired.. After about 1 hour and 20 minutes to be exact (I was counting) he finally fell asleep in my arms.  That’s when Scott leaned over and said…we aren’t going anywhere for awhile… It’s easy to say those things in moments like that, but I know we will continue to experience new adventures with our little boy.

On another note, Scotty took his very first steps all by himself today for mommy and daddy! What an accomplishment! We are so proud of him! Scotty can also climb the stairs all the way to the top! I can’t believe this is the little boy I just brought home from the hospital! For you mom’s reading this, I was with him while he climbed the stairs, and yes we are getting gates this weekend!
