For nearly two years now I have left the page in Cailee’s baby book entitled “Vacation” blank. Yes, we have taken a long weekend here or there but it never seems worthy of calling it her first vacation. Finally, we have made it to the beach and are well on our way enjoying a real vacation, a week at the beach.

After an eventful 4 hours trip which took nearly 6, we made it. Only after struggling through 2 hours of traffic and getting rear-ended (not enough damage to wait another two hours for the cops) did we make it to our destination.

Here’s some pictures from our first day at the beach (Cailee calls it the big pool). She was a big fan and woke up on day two asking for the pool.
