Last Havasu Trip for 2017

Last Havasu Trip for 2017

James had already made plans for the weekend and I didn’t want to miss out on the last Havasu trip for the year so I decided to drive up with both kids by myself.  I was super nervous but both kids were great and I’m very thankful for portable dvd players!  We stopped on the way at Blue Water Casino where Auntie was working a boat event. We went swimming in the pool (which turned out to be a horrible idea because both kids got a rash from the chlorine).  Later that night Gigi and Papa drove up.

Landon loves Havasu so much!  He looked like such a big boy sitting in his Mickey chair while eating his lunch.  His favorite thing is to walk around with a stick or splash in the water.  This trip was easier since he could walk.

I’m so happy Landon loves Havasu as much as the rest of us!  I can’t wait to see what memories we create next year!



We couldn’t wait to get back to Havasu for another fun trip!  We stopped to get dinner from the Springs Restaurant and Daddy took them to look at the fish while we waited for our food.  There was even a turtle swimming around.  Landon remembered the Havasu house and quickly went exploring.

Landon had lots of “firsts” this trip.  He tried “cough-cough” (soda)…thanks Gigi, rode the tube and Sea Doo.  He even fell asleep on the Sea Doo while we gave Tessa a tube ride.

Landon’s favorite part was finding sticks to play with on the shore and splashing in the water.

Thanks Mom and Papa for another great trip!

Havasu-July Trip

Havasu-July Trip

We decided to forgo our usual 4th of July Havasu trip and take a mid week trip instead. Tia and Uncle Matt gave Landon a portable dvd player for his birthday which made the drive out so much easier! Papa let Landon play in the boat while we unpacked and got settled in.

Gigi bought Landon a new life vest which he loved and didn’t complain about wearing at all. We had fun surfing and swimming all day.

The next day Landon realized he could crawl on the shore and loved it.  He only tried to eat the rocks a couple of times which was a bonus.

Landon had fun playing at the Havasu house and watching tv.

We had a great trip and are thankful to have parents who create amazing vacations for us and our kids.

Memorial Day 2017-Landon’s 1st Havasu Trip

Memorial Day 2017-Landon’s 1st Havasu Trip

Landon had his first Havasu trip this weekend.  I was honestly very anxious about the whole thing because Landon hates the car and has only slept in his crib.  He was amazing the drive there.  Tessa kept him happy until Indio by singing and dancing to Disney songs.  Then he fell asleep and didn’t wake up until we got to the Havasu house.  We arrived around 10:30 so we let the kids explore the house while we unpacked and waited for Gigi, Papa and Auntie to arrive.  Landon loved the long hallway.  He would race down it and crawl inside each room.

Landon and Tessa finally got tired and we headed to bed. Landon slept amazing in the pack and play and even nursed well all night.

Landon didn’t wake up too early thank goodness since we needed to keep him quiet until everyone else woke up.  We had breakfast and got ready for our day on the lake.

Landon loved going fast on the boat and playing in the water.  He was awesome all day long and even took a nap while we surfed.

After another great night of us all sleeping in the same room (I still can’t believe both kids slept so well) we headed back to the lake. I woke up at 5:30am to go surfing with Madi and Angie while James watched the kids.  Landon floated on the surf board, watched us surf, and played in the play pool.  He would scream and cheer whenever someone was surfing.  He also loves fast boats!  He would turn his head to find out where the fast boat was as soon as he heard it.

Back at the house Landon took a bath in the sink which meant he splashed water everywhere!  He had an early bedtime from our busy day.

On Monday everyone decided to leave I guess because the lake was empty it wasn’t windy which was nice too. Landon had fun driving the boat with Papa and napped on Gigi.  Then he went surfing with Auntie.  I only trust Madi to surf with the kids because she is so good at it.  Landon loved it!!  He was smiling and cheering the whole time. He fell asleep on our drive home from the lake so we let him nap at the house before heading home.  Our drive home went well until we reached horrible traffic in Cabazon and Landon was over being in the car.  James and I decided that next year he would take off Tuesday so we didn’t have the fight the crowds coming back home.

Overall it was an amazing trip and I’m so happy Landon loves Havasu as much as we all do!  Looking forward to lots of summer days at the lake.
