Looks Good on You Though

I must say, that awful flight kind of started my vacation off on the wrong foot but as soon as I saw Grandpa Davenport at the airport, things started to get a little bit better. There were approximately 20 peeps congregating at Great Grandma Davenport's so from the airport we went directly to.... TARGET! Of course! What does the Target in Boca have that the target in Overland Park doesn't have? Well, elevators and escalators to start with but I'm not sure beyond that. Apparently M&D couldn't fit baby food or diapers into their three giant suitcases so it was a pretty necessary stop from my point of view.

After we got settled back at GGD's, we headed out for some dinner and to pre-celebrate Great Aunt Nancy's Valentine's birthday. I'm not a big fan of hats and this one was no exception.

I guess I can just be thankful they didn't try to make me wear these glasses too? YIKES!

Actually this picture is a little friendlier, in fact I even redacted the candles to protect the innocent. Happy Birthday GAN!


On Sunday, we headed to the Yacht Club (Oh, listen to me, "the Yacht Club," I'm such high society now!) to celebrate GGD's 90th Birthday. My tummy was still a little upset but I had a pretty good time for the most part. I had to meet a lot of new people which can be a little nerve racking though. I got the feeling many of them may have read different parenting books than M&D because I overheard several recommendations to put whiskey on my gums. M&D tend to stick with that new fangled "baby tylenol" but this other remedy sounds intriguing.

Once I got done making the rounds, I got to settle in with some familiar faces. Speaking of faces, have I mentioned that I'm going through a bit of a "face grabbing" phase right now? Aunt Kelly got to experience it first handed and surprise, surprise, M&D had the camera handy! I hadn't seen AK in forever and was excited to tell her all about how I "do stuff" now.


Not all the faces were familiar though. I got to meet Uncle Matthew for the first time and he is pretty silly. It took me a while to figure out what he was saying but that's mostly because he was going back and forth between English, French and duck... I was truly perplexed!

All in all I had a lot of fun, especially when Dad found some balloons for me to play with. SWEET!




If you have Flash, here's a slide show of the family pics taken with Dad's camera. Let me know if anyone is interested in soft copies and I'll email them out!

If you don't have Flash, you can check them out here.

It's bedtime now so I'll have to pick this up again later.

Remember, you can't take it with you, but you can lick it so no one else can take it when you're gone.

Until Later,
Avery
