We took our first flying trip to go with Daddy to Atlanta for a work conference then to Louisiana to visit Ben's great grandmother (my dad's mom). And if I can brag for a minute my baby did amazing. It was just him and I for the flight flight (we were meeting Tim in Atlanta) and I was a little nervous trying to fly with a infant and all our luggage and a stroller. But honestly he was amazing.

So maybe it wasn't the smartest idea to go so far south in July because it was hot with a capital H! Whew. We did go to the Atlanta aquarium while we were in town, Ben slept on and off most of the time but he was awake enough to have a HUGE blowout diaper at the aquarium, which was very exciting. NOT! However I think my favorite part was watching my husband carry around my son and slow down to just point out bright colored fish or wait while Ben tracked the movement of a jellyfish. I love watching their relationship grow and strengthen. Ben has changed us both for the better and he teaches us something about ourselves everyday.
After Atlanta the 3 of us flew to Louisiana to meet up with my family and visit my dad's family. I've been wanting to share Louisiana with Tim since we started dating. We stayed down in Houma and visited with family. Ben got to meet his great grandmother and it was such a beautiful experience. Life is so precious and it was a humbling experience to watch my grandmother hold my son. We got a picture of the 4 generations (Great Grandmother, Papa, Mama, Baby Boy) but I can't seem to find it so you'll just have to imagine 😉
We ate a lot! Po-boys, beignets, lots and lots of seafood! We also went to New Orleans for a day and adventured. We walked around the French Quarter, ate a Cafe-Du-Monde. We took a moment in the Catherdral. We explored the French Market where we (you guessed it) ate more food. Finally we went to Blaine Kern Mardi Gras World where they build the floats for Mardi Gras. They also build the Chick-Fil-A Cows there which I think is pretty neat! It was a wonderful adventure with my family and Ben loved all the attention.

How strong he's getting
When he smiles at strangers
Watching him discover the world
When he acts shy
Chewing on fingers...anyone's fingers.
