Taking a 2 month old on a boating/skiing vacation isn't easy, but we managed. And as you can see, my world still revolved around Eli, not so much the boating/skiing part. It was a huge change for us compared to last year, but we still had a fun time!
We did opt to keep using cloth diapers while on vacation which was nothing new to us, but some of the family had to get used to it - but they did great! Although Aunt Lisa did try to wipe his booty with toilet paper, which was funny!

How sweet! He is getting so big. I noticed the diaper wrap in the first photo (with his personal fan ha ha). It brought back memories for me....21yrs ago! I totally loved using cloth diapers and we never had a diaper rash.

Sounds like fun! If I come boating with you next year ... can borrow Eli's fan? :) So sweet!

Great photos! Yes everything is very different with a little one, but different in such a great way! Looks like you guys had a great time.

How lucky for all of the generations to have this tradition, this memory...thanks for sharing it with us!

Just have to ask, What kind of cloth diapers are you guys using? Trying to research them for my upcoming newborn.

Thanks,

Susan

*grin* We took a couple of those battery-operated fans to the Picnic Pops in Grand Rapids over the weekend. Nice, nice, nice!
