Just over two weeks ago we flew down to Melbourne, on our first trip as a family of three. It was a perfect little getaway as we combined celebrating my birthday with shooting a wedding (stay tuned for the wedding blog post – it was such an emotional, heart-warming event!). I learned a few lessons about travelling with one-year-olds, so we are now ready to venture out a little bit further. Except for the major drama that he was not allowed to open and close window shutters during takeoff and landing, and the fact that I need to book all morning flights next time, Daniel did amazingly well. He enjoyed the sights and the crowds, napped in the stroller (which was a total surprise to us as our baby and his naps are not the best of friends), ate at a table like a proper person, learned a couple of new tricks, and got some funky new items of clothing (as it turns out, after you have a baby, even if you have an afternoon all to yourself to spend at Bourke St Mall, you still only buy things for the baby).
Here are a few snaps from that lovely, busy, beautiful weekend:
