Vegas road trip!

Sadie had a lot of firsts this past weekend and I've been so excited to blog about it. I was waiting for the pictures to be uploaded to the computer but I can't wait any more or I'll forget everything I wanted to tell about. So the pics will come shortly...

She had her first road trip, her first boating exprience, wore her first life jacket, her first time playing in sand...

We left super early on Friday morning with my mom and Jeff's girlfriend Dayna. (Jeff having a cute, extremely Mormon girl for a girlfriend is a completely different post in and of it's self but we're not supposed to talk about Jeff, he hates that.) Sadie normally doesn't wake up until about 9:00 or 10:00 but the excitement of having Grandma there to pick us up so early woke her up. No worries, she was a complete angel. She was an angel the entire drive there with only short bouts of fussiness and who would blame her? We all need to stretch our legs and get something to eat.

Saturday we went boating. I thought we'd have a few people stay on the shore and just trade off being with the little ones and getting to do a little boating so that Sadie wouldn't have to be on boat at all. Wrong! Lake Mead doesn't have a "shore" unless you boat in about 20 or 30 minutes and find a little strip of sand so Sadie HAD to come on the boat. We got her an infant life jacket, well Grandma got it for her actually. I thought she's hate wearing it and cry and scream the entire time. Wrong again! She was an ANGEL!!! Even with the noise and bumpiness of the boat, the crazy wind and her annoying bulky life jacket she was just happy to be there! I finally put a towel over both our heads to shield her from the wind and she fell asleep!
She had so much fun playing in the sand with Grandma and cousin Rachel. I got to jump in the lake which is something I missed out on at girls camp...another story. I even got to wake board!

I could go on and on about how good Sadie was! We had such a fun trip and she was such an angel. I guess this trip taught me that I need to stop being so surprised about Sadie's good nature. She's such a happy baby and we're so blessed to have her in our family! We love our baby girl so much!
