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!!!!

Nathan's 1st Helicopter Ride

Nathan experienced his first trip to Hoffman's Playland!
This is the picture of his first ride ~ it's a caterpillar and Daddy did the honors. I wasn't sure how Nathan was going to handle the speed and the little ups and downs. He loved it. But, not as much as his helicopter ride. As the merry-go-round was coming to a stop Nathan was kicking the horse and bouncing to make him go faster! How do they instinctively know how to do this stuff?
When Nathan went on the helicopter ride and it went way up in the air he laughed out loud! So, loud that other people were laughing at his little squeal! He loved going up in the air - he was even doing "so big" as he went around.

We only went on a few rides because it was a little cold but we have lots of tickets and it's early in the season. We had such a nice family day today. I can't wait for the summer!

Nathan, I can't believe you went on that helicopter!! It goes high and I still get nervous when I go on it with kids.
Good job.
