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!!!!

A Mad Greek, The Cake Boss, Elmo & Lady Liberty!

We have just returned from a 4-day family vacation! We did so much, and had such an incredible time, that it felt like we were away longer than four days! There's no possible way I could blog about all our adventures in one post; it's going to take some time.

Normally, I'd begin the day we left and go from there, but a few of the pictures need correction, so I might jump around a bit.

We began our vacation on Sunday, the day Danny and I celebrated our 7th Wedding Anniversary. We left in the afternoon, and headed to visit friends who live on the New Jersey shore. My friend Kathy has a little boy, who is only a few weeks younger than Nathan, and they always have fun together. They recently opened up a new Greek restaurant, named the MadGreek, which is where we met for dinner.

Nathan and Paulie had fun throwing coins into the Poseidon statute, and playing with their Thomas the Trains'. I wish we lived closer, but I'm glad that we're not that far away!

After dinner, we headed down to the docks and checked out the boats. It was a beautiful night and a wonderful way to end our special day.

I'm always looking for opportunities to introduce Nathan to new things, and when a fisherman walked by with his net full, I asked if he would show Nathan what he had. Crabs!

Nathan was not a fan! Can you blame him?

On tap ~ meeting Buddy, the Cake Boss, hanging with Elmo and the Sesame Street gang, and our trip to the Statute of Liberty and Ellis Island.
