Cabo – Charlotte’s First Birthday

Cabo seemed like just the place to celebrate all three of us making it through the first year!  Charlotte got the beach and we got a short flight, but pretty sure I would’ve gone anywhere to see that birthday girl in her bikini!  The trip was a total success except for Charlotte’s early wake up calls (thanks, Cakes, we really did want to see the sunrises in Cabo).  We had seven full days of family time to really soak in the last year and, after many tears, my heart is overfilled with joy and gratitude for this precious family of ours.  Cheers to the first year… and many more to come!

  1. I have never seen such darling pictures – I can understand why you love Cabo. It looks like Paradise and you are so smart to document it the way you do. It will always mean SO much to you all. After our cold Winter I am sure it was a GREAT way to unwind and enjoy your sweet family and I like Charlotte’s bikini too. i love you so much – Grandma B
