You Want Me to Go Where?

We took Baby Grace swimming in the pool this evening for the first time. She just stared at the water for a while when we got her poolside, but did great once we got in there. If I have anything to do with it, she'll be a water dog for sure. I really look forward to teaching her how to swim--private lessons with mommy will be a lot of fun in the future! 

We made it down here by 2pm on Tuesday. It only took us 8 1/2 hours. Which is really incredible since we stopped twice to feed Baby Grace. In years past, pre-baby, it always took us about 7 the trip down was MUCH smoother than I had anticipated. Grace did great in the car with only one tense moment for about 10 minutes when we hit the 5 hour mark, but she got over it quickly and that was that. 
Thank you for all your prayers!

So far, we've...

played games
tried some delicious red wine
hit up Target for a swimsuit, sunscreen & pool toys for Grace
hit up Old Navy for shorts & tanks
perused at Borders
eaten at IN-N-OUT (Beej's fave)
some of us have already logged hours poolside
hit up Trader Joe's
eaten wonderful homemade dinners
gorged ourselves on cheesecake

We are enjoying our stay here at the Stockman Inn and looking forward to all we have planned!

I'm tired. My bed is calling. Last night was a killer. 
Rough night in a new place = Grace waking up multiple times. 
Let's hope we all sleep better tonight!

Grace has perfected that side-look face. She's awesome. I love that swim shirt! Speaking of kids and water, we'll have to figure out some kind of vacation situation where you can teach my boys to swim. I'm not, what you would call... good. I mean, I can flail around wildly with the best of them, but actually getting from point A to point B is not my specialty.
