This last weekend, we went to Tucson for my cousin’s wedding. It was a trip of many firsts for little Zoom. He went on an airplane, he got to see some live music, he went to a wedding, he wore a suit with a bow tie, and he went swimming.
The travel was fairly uneventful. Zoom didn’t seem to mind the airplane. A couple times he let out a loud, ear piercing cry that I swear he never does at home. And of course, he screamed just long enough for another passenger to mutter, “Oh good grief.” Then, bless his heart, Zoom fell asleep. Look, here he is in the terminal!
There was a live band at the rehearsal dinner. Zoom was mesmerized, watching them. He stared at the drummer. He smiled at the leader singer. Zoom and I danced together to “My Girl,” but I think he liked staring at the musicians best.
On Saturday, we got all dressed up and went to the wedding! It took place outdoors on a lovely lawn with stunning views of the Catalina mountains. Zoom’s twin cousins were also in attendance! The kiddos all got a little rowdy during the ceremony, so we excused ourselves to the back of the lawn and proceeded to have a family photo shoot!
On both Saturday and Sunday, Zoom got to go swimming. He loved it! I’ve never seen him look so happy.
Then again, I’m pretty sure he was happy for a fun family vacation and seeing new sites.
