Whew! a lot of fun but we are glad to be back home again sleeping in our own bed. This trip was a lot of first for Simon.
– first time flying on an airplane
– first time to California
– first time swimming in the ocean
– first time playing in sand
– first time swimming in a pool
– first time attending a wedding
He was a real trooper and a great traveler. He did great on the airplane. I don’t think the other passengers even knew that there was a baby on board.
First time swimming in a pool. For the record he loved swimming in the ocean just about as much as he loved swimming in the American falls reservoir. However, he did seem to like the swimming pool I think because it was significantly warmer.
Believe it or not but I actually didn’t take that many pictures. Simon and I spent the first part of the week hanging out with my brother Mark and with my old college buddy, Melissa. regrettably I didn’t take a single picture of either of them. On Friday Myles flew down and we picked him up at the airport and drove down to San Diego for Gordy and Alexis’s wedding.
Here are the Bride and Groom. I caught them as they came out the door towards the end of the rehearsal.

I didn’t take any pictures of them during the actual wedding. Mainly because this was a small wedding and I was very concerned about respecting other photographer’s space, but also because I was very busy with an overly tired 5-month-old. I am not a wedding photographer nor do I have any plans to become one. Alexis was beautiful and I assure you of that. So now Simon officially has 2 Aunts, Stephanie and Alexis and Beth and Neil are official empty nester’s.
This is Simon with his cousin Lexi. Note the grass in his hand. he seems to be saying "look what I can do Lexi!" Simon got kind of restless during the ceremony so I sat him down on the ground and he proceeded to pull up grass by the fist fulls and left a bald spot on the lawn.
