The BEACH!!!

We got to go on our first family vacation since Taylor has been born. We went to see Mark's grandparents in New Smyrna Beach, FL and had a blast! It was so great to see his grandparents and to get some time away!!

This was our view from his grandparent's condo. It was gorgeous.

Our first trip to the beach. Taylor has her shades on and she is ready!

She LOVED the sand. It was so cute. She would just pick up the sand and watch it slip through her fingers. After she got used to it, she just kept digging until she dug a big hole in front of her. Soon after, she started to eat the sand. That was when we decided it was time to go :)

This was after she planted her face in the sand and got a mouth full. She did not seem to mind.

Who needs a shirt on at the beach?

There was a pool at the condo which overlooked the bay. We spent a few mornings there.

Taylor's belly was cracking us up.

Ready for her second trip to the beach.

Can't forget the sunscreen.

Taylor and grandma chilling in their shades.

We sat Tay on the beach where the water comes up. This is the picture before the waves came up and knocked her over. Oops. She was not a big fan of the ocean after that.

She was miss social at the beach. She crawled over to the little girl sitting next to us and starting playing with her toys. The little girl gave her the shovel.

That wraps up our trip. Thankfully, we get to go back to the beach in about 1 month to see my best friend. We can't wait!!!

Easter eggs, the Easter bunny, and a Ukulele

Taylor loves to crawl over Sophie. Sophie is like her own personal jungle gym. She just sits there and takes it. Good dog!

What up dog?

She is going to be a rock star by the time she is 2! She is already playing the ukulele like a pro.

This was her first time sitting in grass. At first she was not too sure about it, but after a while she started to get curious.

I (Lindsey) love tulips! I wanted to get her picture with some, so we found some near our neighborhood. I think the pictures turned out pretty good.

We went to Nolensville for the Buttercup Festival. There was a petting zoo where we could hold rabbits. I tried to get the rabbit to sit in Tay's lap, but this was the closest it got.

I love Easter egg hunts!!!

We went to the Franklin Easter egg hunt with our neighbors and their little boy. It only lasted about 30 seconds, but Tay had fun. I would put the eggs in her basket and she would take them out. Maybe next year she will get the concept down a little better :)

Where are all of my eggs?

Our official picture with the Easter bunny.

Taylor got to go on 2 Easter egg hunts this year. Our neighbor's little boy just turned 1 and we had an Easter egg hunt for his birthday. Mark and I would lower Taylor to the ground so she could pick up eggs. She actually got alot of eggs this way. The only bad part is now we have all this Easter candy that Taylor can't eat. I wonder what is going to happen to it?

Here are the bunny ears. I guess it goes unsaid that Taylor was not a big fan.

And what kind of Easter would it be if we did not also put the bunny ears on our dog?
