Big man in the big desert

After getting the all clear from Bodie's cardiologist on Friday, we were packing our bags for Palm Springs faster than you can say "are you crazy to travel with a hypoplast???" My parents have a place in Palm Springs (less than 2 hours from Bodie's hospital in case anyone was wondering!) and we have been anxious to get out there one more time before summer ended, so this weekend seemed like the best time to do it. We had a wonderful time! I do have to admit, it was our first time traveling as a family of 4 and let me tell you, it's a whole different ballgame than traveling with just one kid. Adding a second kid, who travels with a pulse ox, a scale, frozen breastmilk, formula, thickener and 6 different meds in 9 different syringes (not to mention the normal baby stuff) makes for a crazy trip. It will definitely take some getting used to, that's for sure! But it was a great weekend, with fun had by all, so we'll definitely take it!!!

Here's some pics of the fun...

All packed and ready to go

Aren't these eyes to die for??? (Have to click on the pic to see them up close)

Pretty big sissie with her dolly

Big sissie "modeling"

"Stick em up" (btw, this lovely overbite is his new look - it's what he does ALL THE TIME now -it's so funny)

The kid loved the pool

He was so proud of himself riding in the "boy big" stroller
So, I changed his diaper on the floor and left the room to throw the diaper out. This is how I came back to find him 10 seconds later. Too freaking cute.
All kinds of silliness
Yep, I'd say the weekend did him in!


  1. God bless you all! xo: nairi

  2. Awww! Those pictures are adorable! I love your daughters tutu bathing suit. Too cute! So happy to hear that you had such a great weekend. :)

  3. Glad you guys got the green light to take your trip. Looks like you had a wonderful time on your family trip. Yes, taking a trip as a family of four is much different than a family of three. Like you said it doesn't help when you have to haul all of the medical necessities too.

    Sweet pictures! Love the napping one.
