Cape Cod

We are back from vacation and getting settled back into a routine. Caden did amazing on the trip. The plane rides were a bit trying at times, but that was to be expected. He loved listening to his music on headphones, which was a life saver. We spent 10 days at the Cape camping with my entire family and two other families that we used to vacation with every year when we lived in New York. It was the first time we were all back together in 8 years, I think. It was great. We spent most of our time at the ocean. Caden loved the sand but was a little hesitant to get close to the water. He would fuss when we would bring him near, even fussing when someone he loved like Daddy or Mommy or his grandparents went near the water. He would point at them and fuss then point up the beach to where our blankets were. I think he was afraid the water was going to hurt them. But after two days he warmed up to it and started playing in it. Mind you, this water is cold I think the warmest it got while were there was 67 degrees. Frigid!!!

A few days after we got back from the Cape we got back in the car and drove down to Arkansas for a Miller family reunion. It was alot of fun. But I think we all were ready to just be home. Caden for sure was tired of traveling and being confined to a seat. He is starting to walk now and developing quite the entertaining personality. He keeps us busy. :-)

Enjoying his music!

Hey guys! It looks like you had a great time. Caden is getting so big! I'm glad someone thought of blogs so people could keep in touch.
