Boca Baby

We were rewarded for our good planning with a happy baby when we landed in west palm beach and so it was straight on to pick up the rental car. Forrest surprised us with a convertible. I was not too sure how Charlotte would like riding with the top down but she loved it! She was below the wind and of course she loves seeing everything! 

The only picture I got of the 3 of us!!

The portrait was to be done at Bradford studio in palm beach and they put us up in the Eau hotel--a five star, five diamond hotel. It was amazing! From the fabulous decor to the welcome champagne, this hotel doesn't miss a beat when it comes to anything! We immediately went to lunch at the hotel restaurant overlooking the beach and we were not disappointed by the view or the food. C loved seeing the birds and eating like a big girl. 
Enjoying prosciutto and melon salad and a straw...
 

That evening after a nap we had Italian at paisanos--delicious! C continued her day of grown up eating with lasagna, tomato and cucumber salad, and bread and pesto. 
And also Cheesies...

The next day we went to the famous Worth avenue for the portrait. The ride was breathtaking--stunning views and mansions? Yes please!! The Bradford staff were absolutely fantastic to us. They worked hard to make c laugh and smile and they even let us hang out in a private waiting room after we were finished so c could take her nap. 
I promise the actual portrait is more traditional...

Afterwards we drove to our new hotel, the Boca beach club which is a Waldorf resort on the beach. We had a nice lunch and then while c napped I slipped away to the spa for a little rest and relaxation in my own. Of course her daddy stayed with her! 
Loving hotel life!! 

That evening we were disappointed with our dinner at Blue so we filled ourselves up with a frozen hot chocolate from serendipity. Yum yum! 

The next morning we had breakfast at the Boca Beach House and then tried to find a fun activity but our efforts were thwarted..boo. Since it was windy we didn't get to spend any time at the beach or pool (except for a few pictures) but we did enjoy lounging on the hotel terrace. 

C loved seeing the birds and was equally thrilled when they showed up at lunch later that afternoon. We were not so thrilled, as one tried to take a puff right out of her baby hand! 
Afterwards we went back to serendipity and let c try her very first banana split! 

That evening we had dinner at 20/20 grille. It was incredible! The food was to die for and the staff went out of their way to make c feel special. The chef brought her a personal appetizer of cut up strawberries himself and the owner carried her around for a while. She of course gobbled up the attention and the food! 

The next morning it was wheels up! Time to head home! We kept our same travel plan in place and luckily it all worked out. 

We honestly had a great time and realized that it is great fun to travel with our little lady and are anxious for the next trip!
