Merry - Land

Lillian meeting the bride to be for the first time.
We just returned from our first vacation as a family of four.  Lillian and I were very important members of the bridal party for my best friend, Amanda's wedding.  I was Matron of Honor (Amanda and I have been friends since I was 4 years old) and Lillian was the flower girl.

Mr. & Mrs. Luksis with their bridal party.
We had such a great time, as you can imagine traveling with two babies is a little challenging!  We got a lot less sleep while staying in hotels.  Jak was a perfect travel companion, sleeping anywhere and letting EVERYONE hold him.  Lillian on the other hand, is at the age where sitting still on a plane is challenging, staying in strange hotel rooms is hard and "performing" for so many strange faces got old fast.  Thank God Amanda invited all the Hanous to her wedding because Mike and I needed the help!

Friends for life....Kelli, Amanda and Courtney
While on the east coast, we were able to sneak in a trip to the beach!  We got lucky and had warm weather on our last day in Ocean City, Maryland.  Gramma and Opa Hanou were smart enough to book us rooms at a hotel with an indoor atrium for the not so great beach days.  The lobby had live parrots, fish and turtles, hours of fascination for Lillian!

Courtney, Jen & Megan....just a few of the Kent Hall girls.  Has it really been 17 years since we first met?  So great to see them!

First touch of the Atlantic Ocean.
Sea air makes for great napping conditions.

Lillian enjoyed the sand this trip, unlike when we were in the Cayman Islands 6 months ago.
