Last week we headed down to Mexico for my brothers wedding! It was Luke's first plane ride, and to be honest I was 100% terrified. The boy will only go to sleep in his car seat or in his own room, so I was sure it was going to be a rough go. The only thing that made me less nervous was that there was about 25 of us on the plane, so we had lots of help!
The flight from Calgary to Cancun was about 5 hours, and Luke actually did pretty well. The plane wasn't full, so he could stretch out on the seat for a while and play with his toys.
He only had 3 quick 20 min naps on the plane, so when we got into Cancun at 2:00 our time, he had only slept for an hour all together since 3:30 in the morning! Needless to say, he was a crabby little baby!
He slept for the entire long bus ride to the resort which awesome, he was much less cranky afterwards!
We spent the first couple of days just hanging out at the resort, Luke went for his first swim! I guess the water must relaxed him, he just about fell asleep in the water every time he was in it.
Friday was wedding day, and it was awesome! The ceremony was in a gazebo on the water, and Chels looked gorgeous! My brother is quite the comedian, and kept everyone laughing throughout the ceremony.
Luke had a really cute wedding outfit, but Will and I were both in the wedding party so my dad was taking care of him before the ceremony while we got ready... Needless to say, this is not what he was supposed to be wearing!
The reception was on the beach, and the food was amazing!
I think almost everyone got up and told a story or made a little speech- I'm totally into the small wedding thing! They also had a cute little dance floor set up, which Eli was all over!
The rest of the trip was full of swimming, eating, and lots of stroller naps! Since Luke is not an awesome sleeper to begin with, we had lots of long nights, but lots of people were willing to hang out with him during the day so we could get a few cat naps in!
The plane ride home went much smoother, he had some long naps and was much less cranky!
It was a great trip, but I am so glad to be home and getting back into a routine!! He is finally adjusting to being back in his own bed, fingers crossed it's back to normal soon :)
