After church, we headed into Newburyport....took some family photos by the water...a beautiful spring day!
And then...after that, off to lunch! Garrett still in a great mood...happy, smiley...and I thought, uh oh...we now have at least another hour to get through...and no nap yet...he for sure will melt down. But I was so wrong...he had his lunch, we had ours....took tons more photos...and he was adorable and cheerful the whole time. I keep thinking how he is soon to be a year old...already showing such wonderful signs of maturity. Well ok, maybe that's a stretch, but his easy going self just continues to amaze me, and makes me wonder what I ever did to get so lucky?
This picture is my favorite of the day. He doesn't get to see his Uncle Asim very often and yet, warmed right up to him.
By the time we left Newburyport, it was around 2:15...this kid had managed to stay awake, cheerful and without incident since 8:30. Ah-mazing. Of course, nearly the moment we got into the car, he passed out. A well deserved rest.
