Our First Family Vacation


We took Nora on her very first non-medical related trip last weekend. It was awesome to finally get to take her out of town and not be going to a doctor. We took her to St. George Island, less than two hours away, close enough to book it back home if we needed to but far enough away to feel like we were on vacation. We were only there for a day and a night but it was perfect. It was a good test trip for Nora and she did great.

Nora had been telling us for weeks, if not months that she wanted to go to the beach. Pretty much the entire ride down she was telling us that she was going to put her “toes in the ocean”. She quickly changed her mind about that when she saw that the waves had control of the beach but she had lots of fun playing in the sand and collecting shells.

Hopefully this was just a taste of many more family adventures to come with Nora as she gets older and traveling isn’t so hard on her. There were a few travel related poop issues but overall she did very well and this experience was much better than previous travels.
