First Travels with Baby

Trip #1: Lubbock, TX
I decided that it was time for a road trip. I wanted Collier to see some of his relatives before he was 3 months old. So, I loaded up the Tahoe, and off we went to spend a week in Red Raider Country!!
We started the weekend off at my grandmother Mimi's house. Here is Collier receiving his first kitchen sink bath from Mimi. I am not sure he knows what to think about this!

I guess he is enjoying Mimi's tender hands. Mimi loves to give baths and Collier didn't miss one while he stayed with her.

Daddy's Caddy.

Hanging out with Aunt Jalisa.

Meeting silly Aunt Jeane! She is a great great aunt and she loves to make everyone laugh!!

Collier and Mimi playing on the floor with his baby einstein play gym. He loves this fun toy!!

On Monday, we went over to my Dad's house and stayed there for a few days. This was Franny's first time to meet Collier. She is another great grandmother. Collier is very lucky to get to know his great grandparents!
Four Generations! Franny, Gramps, Mommy, and Collier.

Playing with Gramps!

Trip #2: Back home to Austin with Granna J.
Collier with his Granna J.
Now Granna J is dating a very nice man named Scott. Scott's parents own some land out in Dripping Springs. During Granna J's visit, he invited us out to come and see where he grew up. The pictures below are from our day there. It was soo beautiful. We had a great time hanging out and going on a hike!
This house belongs to Scott's parents dear friends. They own half of the land with Scott's parents. She was so sweet to invite us in for brownies and coffee. Her home was beautiful! I had to take a picture of it. This was her back porch.

Call and me by the river at the land in Dripping Springs. It was so pretty. Maybe next time Collier can play in it!!

Clyde discovering the trails! He loves going outside and exploring.

Three generations!! Granna J, Mommy, and Collier.

Trip #3: Las Vegas, Nevada
The first week of December, we took a Thompson family vacation to Las Vegas. We stayed at Excalibur, and took Call to see many sights of the strip during the day. At night, Call and his mommy hung out in the hotel room, while Daddy and Uncle Aaron played blackjack.
Here we are outside of New York, New York.

This was at the top of the Stratosphere. Collier took a nap, while his crazy Dad and Uncle Aaron rode all the insane rides at the top of the casino!!

This is how Call rolled during the whole the sling! A snuggly ride for him and a workout for mommy.

Downtown Las Vegas in front of the Golden Nugget. This was Collier's only night out and we didn't stay out long. Collier decided he had done enough for the day and he let us know about it!! Adam and I had to leave dinner and take a taxi back to the hotel. He was sooo upset!! Therefore, I stayed in with him at night for the rest of the trip, and we went sight seeing during the day!
