Eric was trying to post some pictures from the road the other day so I thought I'd provide more detail and some more pictures of my (Kate) cousin Elizabeth's wedding. We traveled through Philadelphia where we met up with Jan and Steve (Eric's parents) who were visiting Eric's aunt and uncle, Lin and Walt. We saw them for a few brief moments in baggage claim at the airport because we had to hurry to the rehearsal. With an hour plane delay, we didn't have any time to spare to make the 1 1/2 drive to Avalon and Cape May.
Jan and Steve joined us to watch Maeve while we attended the wedding festivities. Brigid and Ed (Kate's parents) drove to the shore so they brought back-up sleeping arrangements - a rock 'n play. Maeve can always sleep in this if she is having a hard time falling asleep in a crib or pack 'n play. We ended up using the rock 'n play more than the pack 'n play that was provided by the hotel so thank goodness we had it so we could get a few hours of uninterrupted sleep. Having both set of grandparents on the trip was a treat. We got to enjoy time with and without Maeve which was perfect.
She was a great traveler even though she is getting over her 2nd ear infection. We are learning new things about airport security too. Our bottles sounded the alarms the past two weekends, and the Philadelphia airport security line worker hadn't seen "infant in arms" on a mobile boarding pass yet which required the supervisor's supervisor to let us through! You think TSA would be similar at different airports but they're not so we get to learn new things every time. Maeve and I enjoyed first class on the way home thanks to Grandpa Steve so that was a treat. We didn't even get any dirty looks for bringing a 6-month in first class. All in all it was a great trip, and we wish we could've stayed longer.
