Way Back WHEN-esday

Dateline: July, 2005
Kaylyn's Age: 4 1/2 years
Luke's Age: 11 1/2 months
This was our first beach trip as a family of four. Let's just say it was not the most pleasant trip.....Notice the look on Luke's face? He cried, and cried, and cried, and SCREAMED for 5 solid days! He didn't like any part of it, the sand, the sun, the water, and most importantly, he didn't have his bed. Luke has always been a creature of habit; from just a few weeks old he developed his own night time routine and sleeping habits and didn't adjust very well to change. The most important factor in this routine of his was his bed. Any part of the routine could be interrupted with a mild tantrum, but trying to get him to sleep anywhere other than his bed was just not going to happen. So, of course being away from home, and his bed, insighted the mother of all tantrums. We thought he would give it up after the first night, if nothing else from sheer exhaustion, but he proved us wrong. He cried until we finally made it home 5 days later. Seriously, it was so bad, we didn't attempt another trip until two years later, and y'all know how I love the beach! He's always been a stubborn one! Not sure who he get's that from :)
P.S. I know y'all are tired of these Way Back WHEN-esday posts. I promise to try to get something more interesting on here soon. We've just been so busy, there's nothing really going on to take pics of. In other words, I have no other content right now :)
