Packing for Maine!

When I flew to Florida with SC in February, I felt like I had way too much stuff with me that I didn't really need, and it seemed to just make things a little more stressful.  (SC and I also had bad colds too, so that certainly didn't help.)  With those experiences behind me, I'm attempting to try to not over pack quite so much.  This trip should also be easier because my husband is coming along and SC is no longer drinking milk from bottles.  I have high hopes that it won't be too much of a circus, but I know that by the time we make it through the plane and bus rides we are all going to be pretty bedraggled.  

With that said, here's what I have in my carry-on so far. For entertainment we have two mini books, play doh, a sticker book, one board book, a mini puzzle, a new baby doll with diaper and bottle, an egg with a new Little People figurine inside, window clings and her beloved bunny.
 It seems like a crazy amount of stuff, but it condenses to one gallon ziploc bag, plus the book and doll.  Of course, I'm also bringing an Ipad, which will most likely be the key entertainment,  But with three and a half hours of sitting on the plane/bus, I feel like we need to have a few toys in our arsenal.
 For the necessities, I'm bringing wipes, diapers and an outfit change.
I plan on also bringing her sippy cup, a million food pouches, lots of Aunt Annie's individual sized snacks, a water bottle, changing pad, birth certificate and my super small cross-body purse.  Even scaling down, it has certainly filled a backpack! Any additional ideas?  I thought it'd be helpful to do this post, because every time I pack, I'm scrambling to think back to what I did before.  I guess that's what happens when you don't travel on the plane that frequently!

Weekend Recap: Friends and Baseball!

This past weekend was a fun one for us!  On Friday morning, my friend and her family arrived for a visit!  I always love seeing our two kiddos together.  We've been really good friends since freshmen year of college, and it's so sweet to go through similar stages together.  After lunch and nap time, we hit up the beach and then stopped by our favorite pizza place on the way home!
Saturday we visited the aquarium, which both of the tots enjoyed.
After nap time, we decided to go to the park and then my husband found a nice restaurant for dinner that was child friendly, but the food was also really good!  We don't usually go out very often, so finding a good local place is always exciting. They headed out that evening, but I'm hoping to go visit them in about a month to celebrate my friend's son's birthday.
Sunday was so relaxing, with just some quiet playtime, a trip to Target and then a baseball game that afternoon!  Our realtor actually hosted the event, and SC loved it! I think she might not have realized that an actual game was going on, as she was super excited about all of the watermelon and snacks.
My husband was excited to take her to her first game!
It was such a fun family outing for all of us!
How was your weekend?
