Annual CT Vacation 2013

Our little family spent four days visiting my aunt, uncle and cousins in CT. Brandon and I have gone every year since we have been married and it was/is important to us to continue the tradition once kids came along. We took Clara last year, at five months old. A much different experience this year at 17 months! We had a wonderful time relaxing, enjoying the fall weather and beautiful leaves, eating good food, and soaking in some quality family time.

I was a little more nervous about the actual travel portion this time around since Clara is older and more mobile, and wasn't sure how she would handle two flights there and back (the first being one hour and the second being three hours). But she was a rock star!! We made sure to pack lots of cheerios and her fav toys and that seemed to work fine (all screen time limits go out the window while on a three hour flight)! We were so thankful!

Here are the highlights. . .

(prepare yourself for Clara and pumpkin patch, fall-ish pic overload)

Can't wait until next year. . . when we have two girls in tow!


  1. Looks like a great trip, and makes me wish my brother still lived in Vermont so we could go visit up there this time of year!

  2. So beautiful!! Glad she was such a good traveler! Jealous of your sweet pager..hahaha. ;)

  3. Such beautiful pictures!!! You got so many precious ones of Clara! I love that you guys make this trip every year, I know you & your family both look forward to it. Love ya!

  4. Looks like a fun trip! Love all the many great ones of Clara.

    Also...we have an upcoming vacation early November, which will be Ellie's first flight. I welcome any and all tips. :)

  5. Love all the pics! And even though I'm sure you prefer that she smile for pics, the ones where Clara is looking serious/perturbed are my favorite- too cute!
