California Vacation

Julie, Lily, and I drove to California the last week of August to visit my mom, otherwise known as Grandma "O." Well, Julie and I drove. Lily rode in her carseat. She slept part of the time. The rest of the time she drove her mother and I crazy with her toy mp3 player that plays nursery rhymes...over and over and over and over again. Here are a few pics from our trip.

This was Lily's first trip to the beach. We went to the Balboa Pier at Newport Beach. That's Julie, Lily, Grandma O, and her friend Marcie.

Lily loved being at Grandma O's house. One of her favorite things to do was to sit down on the steps in the hallway.

This was Lily's first carousel ride at Newport Beach. That was her look the entire ride...not freaked out, yet not particularly amused either.

The beach itself really did freak her out. That look says it all. I took her out to where the waves were breaking on the sand and stuck her feet in the water. She wasn't too crazy about that. Nor was she very comfortable standing on the beach towel on the sand. Every time her feet touched the ground she would climb up on top of me where I was reclining.

One of Lily's more pleasant moments in her carseat during the trip.
