Vacation in Virginia

We spent the last week in Virginia visiting Jonathan's family. We had a great, relaxing time. Abigail encountered a few more firsts in her life. Abigail had her first trip to the grocery store and also her first pool experience (I will post more about that later).

The trips down and back went very smoothly. We decided to drive overnight so Abigail would sleep most of the way and we would not have to feed her as frequently. Another plus is that traffic is not as busy, although the truckers can be a little crazy.

Here are a few pictures of Abigail on vacation.

A coworker of mine gave us a cute inflatable duck bath. This came in handy because we didn't have room for her regular tub in the car. Another plus is that she didn't scream her head off like she normally does during bath time (maybe she has entered a new phase ;-).

Another first for Abigail was a trip to The Olive Garden. She opted for her bottle while the rest of us had adult food. Here are some pictures of her with her uncles:

We think the trip threw Abigail off a little. The first few nights were rough. We got to the point where we just let her sleep in our bed. She would fall asleep instantly while, if we put her in the pack n' play she either woke up right away, or slept for a few minutes (in one case an hour or so). We chose sleep in our bed rather than no sleep at all. Speaking of sleep though, Abigail took many naps during our vacation. Here are a few pictures of our little angel sleeping:
