Posted by her VERY proud father.

Edward had the honor of wearing a very special christening gown. It is 104 years old and was first worn by his great, great grandmother, Margaret Pyne. Margaret was my Mimi's (the late Emily Hughes) mother. She first wore the gown in 1904. Since then, it was worn by my grandmother and her brother, all my aunts and uncles, my father and my cousins. What a wonderful tradition!
It was a wonderful day and we were able to celebrate with most of our family. We thank all of our family for traveling to Auburn to be a part of this very special day. Also, thanks to Lauren, my dear sweet friend and neighbor for all the effort she put into helping me get lunch ready for all of our relatives. I would not have been able to make it through the day without her!

The drive wasn’t too bad. Since we got down there so late on Saturday, we just hung out and didn’t do too much. We stayed at a nice condo on the bay. On Sunday, we drove over to the Perdido Beach Resort where my father-in-law was staying so that we could use his pool (ours was covered by a mosquito net) and beach access. We made the trek to the beach with a cooler, two diaper bags, beach bag, umbrella, umbrella stroller and of course baby E. I never knew going to the beach would be sooooo much work. We let E put his feet in the sand. He didn’t mind it too much but he didn’t care for the waves hitting him. We decided that it would be easier to just hang out at the pool.

We have taken Edward swimming several times this summer and he does not seem to mind the water. It always seems to wear him out.

Sunday night, we ate at Lulu’s. This was our first time eating there. We were somewhat disappointed. I guess it’s just another tourist trap. We enjoyed the atmosphere. Here are a few pictures from Lulu’s:
Something caught his eye!
Monday was pretty much an ugly day. We stayed in bed for a while. It was really nice to just relax. After lunch, we headed over to Foley to do a little outlet shopping.

Tuesday, we decided we would just stay at the pool. Edward really loves the water.
T&K played Tuesday night for the Revenue Commissioner’s party. I wish I had brought my camera with me. Edward was a good sport listening to his daddy sing but finally fell asleep. It was a fun night and a great end to a short vacation. I can’t wait until he is old enough to understand and enjoy the beach. I hope everyone had a happy and safe summer!!
