On the Road Again

We are busy, busy, busy!! I don't even know where to start. First, Lucy and I flew into Boston to come and meet Justin. We took the night flight and she was a dream - slept the whole 3.5 hours. We didn't get to our hotel room until 2 am. She was a little confused, but did just fine. The next day we got to meet up with some of my very closest blogging friends - Sara, Jeff, and Lucy Elise. Yes, we had two Lucy Elises together. They were so cute together. We even dressed them alike. The older Lucy was so sweet with my Lucy and shared all of her snacks and books with her and would give her kisses and hugs. We then left to meet up with Justin at Foxboro. Here are some pictures of the girls together and Lucy and her daddy. Sara took a lot better pictures than me, so we will probably post more later. We had such a great time with their family.

Lucy with her daddy and her protective ear gear. She was such a good girl and kept them on the whole concert, which was VERY LOUD! They were so heavy on her little head that she had a hard time keeping her head up with them on.

Older Lucy was a very busy girl and did not really have time for pictures.

Having a really great time.

That night we left for Burlington, Vermont. It was such a cute town with a fun area for us to walk around and explore. I have been really worried about this trip because it involves Lucy being moved around a whole lot and being in all kinds of new places, but she has done AMAZING! Even when she has gotten way off of her normal schedule, she has done great. No meltdowns or anything. I think I have done a lot of unnecessary worrying. She is really a great traveller. Here we are in VT.
Lucy and her Dad by the fountains. You could actually get in the fountains and she was not too happy that we wouldn't let her get in since all of the other kids were getting to.

Lucy enjoying some Ben and Jerry's ice cream - doing a little preparation for birthday food!

Needless to say, she loved it.

From there, we headed to catch the ferry to come to Martha's Vineyard. It is beautiful here. I have never spent any time in the NE other than in Manhattan, and it is really nice up here. We went to the pool first. Then, we walked all around the island, ate lobster for dinner, and are in our room because Miss Lucy was really really tired from all of the travelling and less napping than normal. Lucy has been sleeping with us, and I must admit, I kind of like having her so close. I thought it would be hard on all of us because she really likes her crib at home, but she seems to like being close to us. Justin woke up to Lucy standing in the bed on the bus and laughing at herself in the mirror. It is fun to wake up with her being right there. She has been a huge daddy's girl this trip, which Justin loves. She usually needs him to be holding her. I love that she is a daddy's girl! So sweet. Here are some pictures from Martha's Vineyard and I will have more tomorrow.

Lucy and Justin dressed as twins on the ferry - jeans, white shirt, and Converse Chuck Taylors

Patiently awaiting her turn to ride the oldest working Carousel in the US.

Sitting in a park by the beautiful hydrangeas. The flowers here are so gorgeous.

One full day until she is a year old!!!

What a great family vacation! Lucy looks like she is having such a blast with her daddy! Wanted to pop in and say HAPPY 1ST BIRTHDAY to Miss Lucy!!! We love you guys, Stacey and Adam

mam said...

Happy happy birthday, Other-Lucy! And Kelly, I have to ask: is Justin a rock star? A groupie? A tech guy? A really really avid fan? The concert, the bus with beds...

Jenna and Ed said...

Looks like fun! Happy almost-birthday Lucy!

ShellyW said...

Lucy is adorable as always! What a trip! I'm so glad that she isn't having any trouble adjusting to the different schedule. Sounds like you are all having a fantastic time! I'm jealous. My favorite part of the US is the East Coast and Boston in particular! The best Lobster I've EVER had.

I just adore Lucy and your sight, I must admit that Micaela and I visit it often and she likes to see pictures of Lucy and friends. Tell Lucy that her small friend, Micaela wishes her a happy birthday, I know we missed it by a few weeks, but Happy Belated Birthday, Lucy. Micaela will be 8 months old in two weeks.

Heather said...

Wow, I'm jealous of all your travels! You were back in my old stomping grounds...kind of. I went to high school in western Mass (Wilbraham, to be exact), but since everything is so close, we would go all over the place. When I was in college my parents lived outside of Boston and my dad's company shared a parking lot with the old Foxboro stadium. Then they moved to New Zealand and then to Oklahoma.... Random moves! Glad Lucy did so well with the traveling.
