Harper Meets the Family: Photos from California
Happy Tuesday! I’m finally getting around to posting photos from our California trip. It was a whirlwind of a trip, but I’m so glad we did it and that most of our family and friends got to meet Harper. I will do a travel-with-baby blog post soon, so stay tuned for that.
On both flights we had the whole row to ourselves. The first flight was empty and the second flight, no one wanted to sit with us, lol.
Looking like pro traveler, ha!
Happy as a claim at the hotel room.
Mike and his cousins and everyone’s babies
Voyager Craft Coffee for avocado toast.
Favorite feeding bib lately
I received so many questions about her cart cover. I got it off Amazon!
Had to stop at Tacolicious. Although the Santana Row location is not as good as the Palo Alto or SF.
Santana Row with the fam.
Had to get my favorite Pressed Juicery Freeze. I still don’t understand how they haven’t come to Portland!
Tested out our car seat without the base. Worked perfectly for travel!
When baby rises early in a hotel, you stalk Target until they open, lol
Someone has to learn to share, lol.
I can’t even handle the cuteness. Baby Tyler on the left and baby Zara in the middle.
For the most part, Harper did really well. Being on-the-go seems to suit her really well. Lots of people, not so much, lol. Thursday was the worst. I think traveling coupled with a lot of new faces was too much for her and she literally cried all day. She cried when anyone would even look at her, poor thing. By Friday she warmed up and did better. Saturday we held a small gathering at a park and it was so nice seeing so many of our family and friends. Small cousins got to run around and play at the park, while parents got to mingle, chat, and eat. Harper got to meet her cousin (6 months) and bestie (19 days older) for the first time. Why are a group of babies so cute? The photo of Harper crying was when baby Zara grabbed one of her toys. Still learning to share over here, I guess, lol.
Overall, I think the trip was a success. It’s so nice to get our first trip with baby out of the way, the experience was everything! Mama was tired, though. A needy, teething baby, while traveling means lots of holding and consoling. I did love being back home with Harper. Taking her back to the old stomping (San Jose/Santa Clara) grounds and seeing familiar faces was such a good feeling.
