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!!!!

Day At The Museum & The Funniest Wish

Yesterday, we headed to the New York State Museum and right next to the museum we came across this new World War II Memorial ~ it's just beautiful. My beautiful niece wanted a penny to throw into the water and when I gave it to her I said, "make sure you make a wish!" She said, "I don't want to make a wish." To which I replied, "you have to ~ you can't throw your penny in without making a wish. That's why people do it." So, she took her penny and as she tossed it in made this wish - "I wish for a quarter." hahahahaha I am still laughing about this! She is too cute!

It's been a long time since I had been in the museum so it was like Nathan and I were experiencing it for the first time together. We found Sesame Street!

The September 11th display was probably the most difficult to view. I really wasn't able to absorb most of the items but will on my next visit. I just couldn't explain what happened and become emotional with the kids. This was one of the fire trucks from the World Trade Center ~ the men didn't make it out.

At the end of our trip, we went up to the 4th floor to ride the carousel and Nathan is still experiencing fear so I decided to sit in the pretty little cup with him. Well, that was a terrible idea! It spins!! Fast. I wasn't only now concerned about Nathan but for myself ~ I hate rides that spin like the t-cup! Nathan was fine but I was sick for about an hour after we left. UGH! lol
