Sunday we made the 4 hour drive to visit Tim's mom. She hadn't met Payton yet and she and her husband were having a hard time trying to get off work at the same time. So we made our way there since I am still on leave. Payton was fantastic on the way there! Since she eats every 4 hours we knew we could make almost the entire drive without stopping if we timed it right. Well as anyone with a baby knows, we didn't time it right. It took longer to pack up and drop of Roscoe to my parents than we expected. It wasn't a big deal though. We stopped about an hour away to feed her and were back on our way.
|All ready to go!|
When we got there, we went to a park that has a walking trail and water falls (I forget the name of it). We were going to use the stroller but the path was mostly all gravel/bumpy. We decided to skip it and just put her in the carrier. She loves the carrier because she can look around and see everything. And this was really the first time she was out (other than a walk around our block) longer than 5 minutes. Thank you Mother Nature for not making it a million degrees this weekend so Payton could enjoy you!

We then went to dinner, where the waitress spilled honey mustard in Payton's carseat. No, Payton wasn't in it at the time, but I am still mad about it! The next morning was a big first for Payton...
It was her first time swimming! We got her all dressed in her bathing suit and put sunscreen on
and headed to the pool. Payton loves her baths so I was hoping she would love swimming just as much. And she sure did!!
The only reason we got out is because she was tired and fighting her sleep. She wasn't crying but I could tell she was tired. And as soon as we got her wrapped in her towel...
|This is what spending |
After Payton's nap, we fed her and had to head back home. We took a few scenic pictures before coming back.
On the drive home, we had to stop twice because Payton just was sick of the car seat. But other than that, the trip was perfect. When we make our trip to Buffalo we need to do it overnight so she sleeps through most of it. It was a nice little getaway and test run to see how Payton would do in the car. She was pretty happy the whole time we were there and still slept all night. I was really worried being away from home would mess up her sleeping but it really didn't. She woke up an hour earlier than usual but got right back on schedule by this morning. (Except the whole sleeping through my planned photo time... )
Come back to see videos of Payton from last week and hopefully, her two month post!
