Updates and Easter

I have been away for quite some time!  And I realize that Easter was almost 1 week ago, but I choose to post about it now because I just now have the time....

Emmie came down with strep throat 2 weeks ago and then we decided to up and take a beach trip for Easter and we have just been trying to recooperate from that long weekend trip since we got home.  Shan's grandparents live at Oak Island Beach and we go down there a couple of times in the summer and sometimes for holidays as well.  Since we have been together, I have loved being able to just leave for beach trip and we always love to spend time with his grandparents.  Not only was this Emmie's first Easter, but really the first time she got to spend any significant time with her great grandparents (and her first road trip and trip to the beach).  When she was born they came down but then she wound up in the NICU for 2 weeks so it was nice for them to get acquainted.
 She did great in the car both ways, she ended up sleeping most of the time. 
We were able to hit up the beach and again she did great, she took a long nap under the umbrella.

On Easter morning after we checked out all the goodies the Easter Bunny left, we went to the beach to take a few pictures of Em.  Unfortunately she wouldn't really cooperate and most of the pictures are of her looking at the sand.  We decided to forego church this year because we didn't want to leave her in a nursery with people that we didn't know.  I really did want to take her to church on her first Easter but being out of town it was just difficult.  (I also ended up packing all of our stuff in a frenzy and didn't have a thing to wear to church). 

Emmie and her great-grandfather were buddies.  She is the only great-granddaughter.  (so far). 

We had such a great time and it was good to just get away.  Things are definitely different when it comes to traveling when you have a child, but I wouldn't change it for the world!
