Maddys First Trip to the Beach

We went to Rockaway toady to visit Nathans Grandparents and the Family. We had lunch and a couple cakes to celebrate all the different Birthdays. We went down to the Beach it was the first time Maddy had been to the ocean. It was so much fun to watch her and all the expressions on her face she called it Ba, Ba, this is what she refers to all water. It is her word for bath.

She ran for the water! She was so excited. It was so funny.

She got a little wet then decided she was a little scared. She had to hold Nathans hand the rest of the time. She wouldn't let go! She played in the sand a bit she liked it a lot.

She finally let Uncle Gabe hold her and and play in the water. It was great! Gabe got more wet then I think he wanted to. Maddy had fun, and
that is all that matters!

Being a mommy

Before I was a Mom I never tripped over toys or forgot words to a lullaby. I didn't worry whether or not my plants were poisonous. I never thought about immunizations. Before I was a Mom - I had never been puked on. Pooped on. Chewed on. Peed on. I had complete control of my mind and my thoughts. I slept all night. Before I was a Mom I never held down a screaming child so doctors could do tests. Or give shots. I never looked into teary eyes and cried. I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin. I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep. Before I was a Mom I never held a sleeping baby just because I didn't want to put them down. I never felt my heart break into a million pieces when I couldn't stop the hurt. I never knew that something so small could affect my life so much. I never knew that I could love someone so much. I never knew I would love being a Mom. Before I was a Mom - I didn't know the feeling of having my heart outside my body. I didn't know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby. I didn't know that bond between a mother and her child. I didn't know that something so small could make me feel so important and happy. Before I was a Mom - I had never gotten up in the middle of the night every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay. I had never known the warmth, the joy, the love, the heartache,the wonderment or the satisfaction of being a Mom. I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much, before I was a Mom. It's who I am

Nathan and I finally got to go camping. We have wanted to for awhile it being summer and all. It started raining on Thursday pretty bad, so we thought for sure it would continue threw the weekend. The weather channel said it would be nice Saturday and Sunday but you never know. I got everything ready all day Friday. By the time Nathan got home at 5 it was still raining but we decided to go anyway. It only rained till about 7pm then it quit. We drove around on Larch Mt. for a bit and found the perfect spot! It turned out to be a perfect camping night. We made smores and sat by the fire and enjoyed the peace and quiet.
The picture above is a view from our camp site. It was beautiful.
I was taking pictures of Nathan making sticks to roas
t marshmallows, he was standing by the fire and the picture looks like he is in the flames too cool!
On Saturday we got up late, we got to sleep in it was so nice. Then I made breakfast and we just hung around I read a lot he shoot his guns it was just so nice to be all alone with him and enjoy each other and the outdoors. We took a nap. Well we took two naps! It was great. I made dinner in a dutch oven on the hot coals. I made beef stew it turned out really good. I hope we get to go again soon.
