A couple of weeks ago, we journeyed to the beautiful island of Hopetown in the Bahamas for Mario’s wedding. I had been anxious about this trip for months for multiple reasons (getting Nate a passport, trying to keep him out of the sun, how would he be on a plane, etc.) But in the end it was all worth it.
Nate was a dream baby to travel with for the most part, no crying on the plane, and all of Trey’s friends were really supportive and cool about the tiniest member of the wedding group.
Here is just one of the spectacular views:
The groom and groomsmen: Trey, Mario, Jon, Andrew, and Mario’s Uncle
My two favorite people in the whole wide world.
Nate was pretty tuckered out after all of the excitement of being in a car, plane, and boat in one day. Thanks Bubbie for the super awesome travel bed! (Side Note: Nate is actually wearing one of Trey’s baby outfits, isn’t he so precious?)
After a nap, we poked around the tiny island a bit. (It’s only seven miles across and a mile wide. You could get anywhere in five minutes.) We found the Methodist Mission House where Boyd (Trey’s dad) spent two summers.
Here was our view at dinner, the beautiful Hopetown lighthouse:
None of the street signs were “official,” they were all hand-painted creations. The one below is pretty cool:
Here are a few photos of the rehearsal brunch. It was held at the Hopetown Inn and the view was spectacular.
Beautiful Bride and Groom
Later that day we went to Tahiti Beach. Most. beautiful. place. ever.
Nate was a good boy and chilled in his tent. Notice his little surf shirt?
The day of the wedding we
Gave the tot a bath- the sink was the perfect size!
Strolled around the island and enjoyed these gorgeous flowers that were everywhere in all different colors. Anyone know what they are? I want some!
Notice the tiny dinosaur on the rock? That is a curly tail lizard and they were everywhere! At least they were friendly, and I’m glad Nate wasn’t big enough to try to catch one for a pet!
We wanted to climb the lighthouse but didn’t get a chance. However, Nate wore his daddy’s lighthouse outfit in honor of the attempt. It all looks picture perfect, but approximately one hour after this picture was taken Nate decided to decimate the outfit, and Trey’s favorite fishing shirt, with poo. Haha. Moving on. . .
This was our view at the reception. The wedding was beautiful, and the reception was a blast.
See those guys behind me? They LOVED Nate! It was hilarious. They asked to hold him and were dancing with him and making him laugh. I love it when people surprise me. They totally looked like tough guys but they were all big teddy bears with Nate. Precious.
Scuvi especially loved Nate. I thought for a little while that he wasn’t going to give him back for the reception! Scuvi does snorkeling and diving instruction so it was a lot of fun to talk to him. He told us that sharks were nothing to worry about but that EELS were the thing to be afraid of. Ick!
I wish I knew what Nate was thinking here. . .

Sweet Mario held the buddy so Trey and I could dance.
We had a wonderful time.
FIVE MONTH update coming soon- on his fifth month birthday I promise! But is it really five months? Really? Doesn’t seem possible. . .
