An Overnight Trip

We as a family just need a little break from the "norm". This week hubby has decided to take us to Wildwood, NJ for a day! We are leaving Tuesday to sleep over in a hotel right in front of the beach and walking distance to the boardwalk, and we will spend the day relaxing on sand building sand castles and working on our tans, and then walking the boardwalk and going on rides for some fun! Maybe a nap in between??? I would love to pick up some of their infamous Salt water taffy & fudge. Mmmm there is something about that jersey sea water that makes that fudge amazingly great!

Of coarse I'll wind up packing way too much, and eating way too much, and getting way too much sun... but I guess I'll have to settle. hahaha!!!! I cant wait for our little trip!!!

This is a picture of Guy at the beach last summer
On the bottom photo at the left is a picture of a beached whale (me) less than a week before I delivered monkey Cory last Sept, who will be joining us at the beach for the first time ever this trip~!
To the right on this photo is my husband's sister and my childhood best friend making sure I did not deliver Cory right on the beach.

Come join me in Family Fridays.. Write about something You and your family have done together over the past week or plan on doing, whether it be watching a family friendly movie, a fabulous family recipe, a fun family recipe your child(ren) helped with, a fantastic family game, products your family thinks are far out, or just simply taking a family trip out and about. Whatever it may be we would love to hear about it!

Just add your name to Mr. Linky

Aaahhhhhhhhhhh....... Bitter Sweet Sigh
This would be my sweet sigh of relief!!! Last week was horrible. I am still over exhausted from all of last weeks events, but things are now looking up!~~ As you see in the pictures below in Wordless Wednesday my 3 year old Guy who was in the hospital last week is in his normal spirits acting like the clown he is!!!! He is so sweet. He will cuddle his daddy and me whenever we want. He kisses us, and tells us he loves us. A very emotional little boy with a great big heart!!! He is my baby even though he is 3. I tell him he will always be my baby!!! And below Guy's picture you can see that Cory learned how to crawl, stand, cruise and attempt at some obstacle coarse training which all made him a lot less whiny which is a good thing~~. I guess he just wanted to be able to do things on his own.

And Now for the Bitter sigh.......Cory is very very independent baby. A little too independent for me to be honest. He goes to bed alone in his crib :-( Not my choice, his & he has been holding his own bottle for months. The only thing i have left of him is when he falls down and gets hurt he wants his mommy. How sad is that for me.

He is my last baby. We are not having any more babies and while watching my nephew this week who is 5 between ending preschool and starting summer day camp I have realized that I am absolutely certain that I do not want anymore children!!!! (not that I have a choice, hubby was snipped back in October.) If we ever do decide to adopt a baby it will not be for a long long while!!! Which brings me back to......WWWAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH he is my last baby and is not so much a baby anymore... How do I deal with that???? I am trying to keep him a baby and he fights me tooth and nail (except he doesn't have any teeth) to become a little boy instead.

They all grow up in their own time I guess, and I guess his own time is happening faster than I would like to admit!

All in all this week is much much better than last week and I am glad we all survived!!!
