Spring Break - Part 1

Our spring break trip to Vermont and Connecticut was a blast! Unfortunately, my fear of Kathryn crying on the plane came true for much of the trip there. Let's just put it this way - it was nothing short of miserable for a lot of the time, but well worth it once we finally landed.

I decided to split up the first group of pictures as a look of the trip through my iPhone.

Waiting to board the first plane. Don't let this cute little happy face fool you.

This pretty much sums it up...
Checking out the snow
Practicing climbing up a little step in my parents house. A pro!
This is how Vermonters chill wine on a whim.
Uncle Sam came up for a visit from Boston! Here they are playing with Tupperware and K perfecting the art of putting a lid on and off.
We ate some delicious meals (gotta have dad's homemade pizza!)
Perfect hot chocolate weather (and yes, I made sure we made my obligatory stop at Dunkin Donuts for their hot chocolate, too!)
Mom made delicious crepes with fruit. Yummy!
And Kathryn ate from a silver spoon the entire trip. Oh boy...
Kathryn and I woke up from a nap one day (yes, I was able to take naps!) and it was snowing (actually it snowed on a few occasions) we had to go outside and explore.
Bundled up for a walk.
Walks are exhausting.
I was able to get some use out of my fave L.L. Bean boots.
Happy little girl ;) (with some food in her mouth...not a 5th tooth)
My dad enjoyed teaching her how to drink out of a glass and bottle. She's a pro!
Out to dinner one night. Although she can't use it on her own, they gave her the cutest little Kathryn-sized mason jar.
And they had a player piano that K went nuts for while sitting at the table. She was dancing up a storm! When we left, we put a quarter in the piano and she tried to play it herself. Musical genius in the making??
Hanging around the house.
Check out the classy corral my dad created so Kathryn wouldn't go
near the wood-burning stove :)
Sweet dreams
End of the trip: Headed to Kim's bachelorette! A.K.A. my first night away from Kathryn. Yikes! Thanks to my parents, Aunt Deb and Uncle Jon and lots of other family, she was in the best hands possible!
Flight back to TX! Thankfully, more manageable than the trip there. And, we lucked out with an empty seat next to us, which provided more wiggle room.
Waiting for our last flight while in Houston. Future barrel racer, perhaps?
Long day of traveling. Such a sweetie!
More pictures to come!
