Life's a Beach! Mason's 1st Birthday ... Party Number 3, with The Pelletiere Family

Mason took his first trip to the beach in September ... needless to say you will not see many pictures of Mason actually at the beach. He was not very fond of the sand, and as soon as he started warming up to it, he spiked a high fever and was NOT feeling well. We actually had an amazing trip to spite Mason's illness! Family time is the best!

He definitely looked the part ...

Look at that face ...

This outfit is from Mimi's beach wear collection

You can tell he is not feeling well

Our little Fish

Mason started swim lessons this summer and he LOVES the water! He is doing great holding his breath, kicking, and of course SPLASHING! I'm not sure who likes the classes more, Mason or Mike and I .. we are both at every class with camera in hand!!
Mason fishing for rings and putting them in a bucket ...

Kick, Kick, Kick ...

Graduation Day ...

NO fear ...

Off the side ...

And for his last trick Mason will attempt to jump off the side while standing ... SPLASH!
Mason's favorite part of the class is the "Good Bye" song, where everyone smiles and waves at him. He has the biggest grin on his face and always waves back!! I'm not a proud Mom or anything ... what a dork in this picture!

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's Mason!!

Mason took his first plane ride (and his first steps) over the 4th of July Weekend. We all went to visit Mimi and Poppa in Hendersonville, North Carolina.
Mason was great on the plane ... mostly entertained by Baby Einstein and ice cubes.
The Pelletiere's ... you will never want to leave!!
