Ocean Trip #1
My mom took Bryce and I to Seaside, OR for a couple nights during the week. This was back in August but I am just now getting around to posting it :)
We went for 2 nights and had a great time! It was great for my mom to get to spend so much time with him and get to know him even more. My mom had a great plan, she told me she would get up with Bryce during the night so I could sleep. Ahh, the thought of sleeping a whole night again. When Bryce woke, he was not happy that he wasn't in my arms and he let Grandma know! She didn't give in though and worked hard to calm him down. It was a long night. The next day we were in our hotel room and out of one my mom's many bags she tossed out an Us Weekly magazine. I told her I didn't realize she bought those. She said she doesn't usually but she bought it because she thought she could read it while she was up in the night with Bryce. Ya right! She must have thought I was making up the stories of how awful of a sleeper he is.
As I write this, I realize there has been so much progress in his sleep these past few weeks. I have to think now to remember how bad of a sleeper he was. He is still not a great sleeper at almost 14 weeks old, he is much better though. I am thankful.
The weather for Bryce's first trip was great because it didn't rain once. In my opinion, that makes for great weather at a WA or OR beach, no rain. If you get sun or warmth, it is a bonus. We spent our time walking around shops, eating, and basically letting Bryce be our boss for what he felt up to next. When we first arrived to Seaside, the power was out. I mean OUT. No traffic lights, hotel was completely black, every shop, every restaurant. We thought it would be a good idea to go hurry for some discount ice cream :) Several hours past and the electricity finally came on. It didn't stop us when it was off, we continued doing things as if it were on.
It was a nice trip and Bryce seemed to enjoy himself. I always love visiting down there and can't wait to go again.One more for the memories!
