But What Was the Best Part?

We have returned. One may wonder what best part of the trip was. Let us consider the options and recount the lovely vacation we just had. What was the highlight of it all?

Was it pushing the car around on the beach?

Hanging out in the beach duds?

Filling and emptying the bucket?

The public displays of affection?

Putting the cap on the bottle? (oh yes, putting caps on things definitely should be included in the possible highlight choices)

Nope. It was this:

Finally, FINALLY Sam took his first steps. The pics aren't great because the room was pretty dark and we didn't have the video camera on the trip (of course!) but he can totally do it. He's very brave now that he has gotten started. We've probably got some booboos ahead, but right now we're all very proud. And glad to be home.

Yay! Steps!!! That is awesome. The same thing has been happening around here so I know how exciting that is. But I know you've been really waiting for it.

Okay does he actually leave his Baby Banz on? Cause A won't. I love your bathing suit it is so retro and cool. It looks very Audrey Hepburn, love it.

P.S. Another thing we have in common, the love of Ralph Macchio.

So happy you are back!
I love the pictures from your trip.
I see Sam is a giver of open-mouth kisses, too! We get tons of those around here and they are often the highlight of the day. But not as exciting as walking! You are going to be one busy mama!!
