Recovering from our vacation

Well, we made it home from our vacation, safe and sound. I apologize for not updating sooner...things have been a little hectic around here wince we got back. The trip went wonderfully. Our 16 hour car ride wasn't nearly as hard as I expected. We left in the evening so all the kiddos would fall asleep. And they did! They all went to sleep around 9:00 and didn't wake up until 6:00 the next morning! It was wonderful. From that time until we got there, we made various stops for nursing, potty breaks and other various things. We did the same thing on our trip back and it went just as well. Thank you Lord for such well behaved children (Oh...and in-car DVD players too!)

We all enjoyed California, visiting with family, going to the beach, and going to Sea World. We are so blessed that Israel is such an amazing baby! He transitions so well from one thing to the next without any problem. He will nap anywhere which makes traveling do much nicer! In fact, her spent most of his time while we were out, just sleeping in the sling :-) Here are a few pictures from our trip.

Israel and his cousin Amanda (who is 4 months older then him). She thought he was wonderful! He wasn't so sure what he thought of :-)

Israel's first time in the sand. He really couldn't care less about it to be honest. He just kind of stared at it and hung out.

Israel's first time in the pool...well, he didn't exactly get in it...but he touched it :-)

Enjoying the fish at Sea World. (It was so cute...this was the only thing he seemed to be interested in while we were there. I love the intense stare!)

Israel David with his very special Uncle David...whom he was named after.
