On April 21st we left for our first international trip with Coco to St. Lucia. (it was actually April 22nd for Chris since he discovered that his passport expired the night before we were supposed to leave...but that is another story). We were obviously very nervous about the trip...how would Coco do on the plane? ...how would she sleep?...etc. As it turned out, everything worked out great! Coco was a gem on both flights.
Our voyage was based upon a fitness retreat that Victor was asked to teach at the Cap Maison resort. The event occured from Thursday, April 28th through May 1. About 20 fitness fanatics from Westchester joined. We went down a week early to have some R&R before the event. Despite several days of continuous rain, the event was a great success!
One of the highlights of the trip was being able to finally dress Coco up in the many summer outfits and bathing suits that she received for her birthday.
Last summer, Coco could not get enough of the pool. She would sit in her little flotation device and splash around gleefully. For some reason, she was not so into the pool on this trip, unfortunately. She is also still a bit intimidated by the ocean. We think maybe the waves are a bit loud for her.
By the end of the trip, though, she seemed to love to sit by the edge of the pool and dip her feet in. Here she is sitting with Daddy in a cute little bathing suit that the Luisos gave her.
Poppy saw this adorable little "skirtini" in the Chasing Fireflies catalogue and had to get it for little Miss Coco!
While the main part of the beach was very overwhelming for her, we were able to lure Coco in to splash around in this little cove that was pretty protected from the waves. Maria from Chris' office gave Coco this cute little frilly one piece.
