Welcome to Alberta, Baby!
First road trip with the baby! What an experience.
I am still beat to hell from it. Thank god my mom was still in town from Los Angeles to help me make the voyage. I DEFINITELY could not have done it without her! Thank you mom!
The car was packed like a clown car full of stuff. It was hell prepping + packing for this trip. I’m so glad that situation is over with. Here’s mom crammed in the back with the baby. Megu is in the front. It was like Jenga. Oy vey.
Mom sat in back with the baby. Here they are fully getting psyched on each others company. Look at Langdon’s facial expression in the mirror! Because of my mom’s companionship, Langdon was a dream on this trip. Mom chatted with him, soothed him + held his little paw during the drive.
Look at all of this crap. Mom + I both had tiny suitcases. All of the rest was for the baby. This is what happens when you travel with a baby. Accessories, blankets, bottles, toys, multiple changes of clothing. Sigh….
Before we left for the trip, Jeff bought Langdon his first pair of sunglasses. I’m really glad he did because Alberta can get hella bright. Here’s Langdon sporting his camo print shades for the first time! Mom + I could not stop laughing! Dude was loving it!
Another 6-ish hours later……we have arrived in Canmore, Alberta!!!!! We are lucky, lucky stars because our pals Karen, Kyle + Juna were awaiting us in their splendiferous home + they always welcome us with open arms!!!! Juna IS CRAZY ABOUT BABIES!!!!!! She devours them like sweet cupcakes! Here she is with her new bestie. She made Langdon a cool bracelet that happened to match his outift!
If you Yankees think that Canadians live in igloos + that there is snow all year long. Ye be warned. It was SO HOT when we arrived! I stripped Langdon down to his diapers. Here’s my little hippie baby cooling down.
Welcome to the Canadian Rockies, Lang Lang! You made it!!! Your first big trip!!!
