a week of firsts


Last week we drove to Rhode Island on the 4th of July. Joel came back to work on Sunday, but Charlotte and I had three extra days with Grandmom, Granddad, and Uncle Allen. Charlotte had a wonderful time and checked off a lot of new first time things.

  • First bugbite
  • First time taking a walk in her big girl umbrella stroller
  • First time refusing ALL three naps in one day
  • First time falling asleep exhausted at 6:15pm (!!)
  • First time sleeping through fireworks right outside her window
  • First time gumming on a watermelon rind
  • First time sitting in a high chair (so big!!)
  • First drive through New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island
  • First visit to Grandmom/Granddad's house
  • First plane ride (spoiler: she did GREAT!!)
  • First train ride
Vacation and time with family is so refreshing. I'm grateful for the chance Charlotte had to get to know some family members a little better. Plus, being away from home for a little while makes home that much sweeter.
