Nathan is Hebrew and means "gift from God" - we couldn't have been more blessed than to have been chosen as his parents!

Thank you for keeping up-to-date with Nathan. We hope you visit often and enjoy experiencing our son's journey as much as we do. Please feel free to leave comments.

We love hearing from everyone!!!!

At the Glen.....(Part 1)

The Terry Family had a terrific mini-vacation in the Finger Lakes at Watkins Glen. As most of you with children know vacations with infants take a lot of thought and planning. We really wanted a get-a-way this weekend but really struggled with where to go - we needed to make sure Nathan would have his needs met and this was the perfect choice!
The pictures above were taken at "the gorge" in Watkins Glen State Park - the views were absolutely amazing. Daddy deserves an award for this hike - it was 1.5 miles, about 900 stairs, straight up and he carried Nathan the entire way!
Once we made it to the top we took the shuttle bus back to our car - Nathan's first bus ride!!! He really enjoyed it - looking out the window the entire ride.
We also visited about a dozen wineries, a few breweries, the International Speedway, and the local Italian festival. Nathan even got in on the tasting - wait til you see that picture! More to come...

Looks like you guys had a great trip! That picture from the bus looks like Nathan is saying, let's go, Dad! I want to get moving! Can't wait to see the rest of the pictures!
