Calvin Gets a Haircut | Last Days at Ocean Reef

Today marks the last day of our season in Ocean Reef.  I posted photos earlier this week from our wild Easter, but have been taking out my camera a lot since I really enjoy the combination of Florida light, textures, and leisurely lifestyle of vacation.  This post includes shots of us just hanging out in the lanai, Calvin coloring, George rolling around, eating, chilling, drooling, icing, golf-carting it, playing, etc.  You’ll see a few images of Dan’s parents, “Me-Ma and Pop”, who joined us for the past few, brilliant days.  And, perhaps most important to me, the Haircut (see more below..).


So, the Haircut.  Calvin’s hair is my own hair, but a better, less-frizz variety.  Blonde, wispy, curly in humidity (Florida)/wavy in dry weather.  It has gotten quite long and unruly – curling up and out.  He often gets mistaken for a girl, but other people warn me never to cut it in fear of the baby curls being lost.  I was pretty confident this wasn’t going to be the case, as it’s just going to be inherently curly hair, not baby curly hair.  Anyway, I took the plunge and cut it myself – attempting a “cool/hipster” look with short sides and long on top to preserve and highlight the curly character of his hair.  I’m frankly pretty proud of myself and I think I surprised my skeptical husband!  Calvin seems to dig it too (although he was also skeptical during the cut as evidenced below).

Closing this post with a few photos of Me-Ma and Pop and the end of the evening last night.  Back to a snowy Boston April tomorrow!  Sigh…PIN
