Vacation to PA, NY, and St. Louis

We took a family vacation and Dax had his first plane ride. We visited family in Pennsylvania and New York, then stopped by to see our friends, the Hilliards, outside St. Louis. Dax did great on the plane and slept pretty well during the trip, especially considering he had 4 different "bedrooms" and he cut not 1, not 2, but 3 molars. For all the pictures from the trip, visit http://picasaweb.google.com/karen.derouen/July2008 .

Some favorite memories of the trip:
-Dax curling up with his lamb on the floor in the middle of the airport because we'd woken him up at 4:30 in the morning
-making friends with other kiddos in the airports
-Dax eating blueberries until we thought he'd burst
-eating dinner at restaurant where owner kept taking Dax and introducing him to all the other diners
-Dax grabbing his toes when we asked if he wanted toast
-Dax saying "mama" for first time
-sitting on the porch at the lake, talking with family
-Dax and Ava chasing each other, squealing the whole time
-seeing how much other people love our little guy

We had a wonderful time catching up and relaxing with everyone. We're hoping to make the trip again next year.
