HH Vacation: Day 1 & 2

So, G is on his 1st vacation! Chad and I were anxious for the car ride - getting it all packed up and ready to go was one thing (never seen a car so full) and then wondering how Griffin would actually on the 4 hour ride was another. Well....I'd say he did pretty good! We had two ear piercing crying spells that lasted about 15-20 minutes each, but the rest of the time he was either sleeping or tolerating the ride. Go Griff!

The first order of business once we arrived in HH was to go over to Chad's grandparent's house...They had not met Griffin yet and were chomping at the bit to get their hands on him!

It was such a fun meeting....G loved them immediately (as anyone would)! The first thing Gray said when we got there was "Gimme that boy!"

I'll let the pictures do the rest of the talking...

They got a new toy for Griffin...It's a little guitar that plays music and makes sounds. We thought it was going to be a little to "old" for him, but HE LOVES IT! He can actually mash the buttons and just loves when it plays and lights up.

Chad and I were amazed by how relaxed Griffin Gray was with big was like an instant bond! Griffin usually isn't content to just SIT with someone (he likes to be up and about), but he just sat with Gray in his chair happy as could be. At one point Gray rocked both of them to sleep...I couldn't get the camera in time to snap the picture of them both sleeping, but this is when G had just woken up from his little cat nap...obviously Gray is still sleeping. haha...

On day 2 of our vacation, Chad decided he would get up early and meet his grandpa for a bike ride. Grandpa Gray usually rides between 20 and 25 miles PER DAY on his bike....Chad was in for quite a ride. (I think it helped that Grandma Jenny made waffles for them before they left.) Chad enjoyed himself on their 23 mile bike ride, but he was pooped! He was asleep on the couch by 9....I had to wake him up for the American Idol finale!

Once Chad got home we decided to try Griffin in the pool for the first time!!! Daddy got him changed....just look at that BELLY!!!

He seemed to like the pool! He was content to just sit in his frog float and relax. We had a few smiles and laughs out of him, but I think he was mostly just trying to figure it all out.
We just let him float around while we went inside for lunch.

(JUST KIDDING! This was the only time we had our hands off the float. Just wanted to get a rise out of the grandparents. I sent this picture to my mom and her response was "So Cute! I would feel better if someone was beside him in the pool.")

We need to come up with some sort of game plan for getting out of the pool...I think he was freezing and uncomfortable in his wet clothes and diaper.

It has been a great vacation so far! Our friends Cliff and Erica and Jack will be here this afternoon...stay tuned for more pictures!
