So, we went CAMPING!!! 2012 had been a whirlwind and and since it was only February and we were exhausted we desperately needed some time away. Since Joe had a few days off, we decided to head up to Northern PA to camp. Now this is a place where there is NO PHONE SERVICE, NO INTERNET, AND NO TV, so basically it was HEAVEN!!! It was just US, with no outside distractions...boy we needed this!!! The last time we went up there, Maxfield was a teeny little thing, and we managed to tent camp which is how we normally roll....but this time...oh...this time...Joe rented a CABIN!!! It was perfect!!!!!!! The cutest little wood cabin with all the luxuries of home! I mean, it was even nicer than our real home! We had a great time! We made yummy meals, relaxed, and even managed to squeeze in a six mile hike! Let's just say, our kids are troopers and the last couple of miles we might want to forget but all in all it was fun!!! We saw beautiful waterfalls, and had such an amazing time!!! Sweet memories were made :)
(Maxfield is in the carrier on Joe's back)
And then the rain started, and the camera went bye bye, and the kids were over it, and the last couple of miles were not fun. But as you can see below, we made it back! The girls were dry, happy, and enjoying Popsicles!
And then we said goodbye to Cabin F!! We cannot wait to go back!!!!
You know us, we are counting down the days till we have a few days off to head out for another adventure!!
This February, our sweet/crazy/cuddly/awesome little boy turned 1 (or uno for those bilingual readers). Believe us when we say that this year has flown by!!! I mean, really how could our 7lb 3 ounce, 21.5 inch newborn possibly be 1!!! We are so blessed to have a boy in the mix now. He is lively, energetic, curious, and at times pure trouble but we adore him! We spent the day with our little man going on a nature walk, and just enjoying his amazing little personality. Daddy made a cake (which Maxfield would only eat once he was allowed to crawl on top of the table), and he loved his new toy! It was a great day!! Yes...we areSO VERY BLESSED and THANKFUL!!!!
Jade's birthday was this past January! Our lovely second baby is now 4! It's crazy to think that when we moved to Pennsylvania she was just three months old, and now she is nearly full grown!! :) She is a very sweet and loving little girl and she'll rub your cheeks all day...yet she is spunky and has her own little attitude where she'll pose for photos with her hands on her hip in a second! She is indeed a blessing to our family and we love her so!!! Her birthday began with breakfast at a diner, where she ate chocolate chip pancakes and later we had a little "Jadey Party" where she ate chocolate cake! Chocolate was indeed the theme of the day!! It was a great day, showering our little peanut with love!!! <3
