Noah also enjoyed the sand...although he had a rough time walking on it. I think his favorite sand activity was having other people pile sand so he could knock it down! I love the beach, but the sand everywhere drives me nuts...that was one I really had to get over on this trip! Noah's second favorite sand activity...eating the sand! Then he got very mad as we tried to clean it out of his mouth...should have just left it in there!! He also enjoyed naps on the beach...Nana was great at holding a sleeping Noah!Just like his mommy, Noah enjoyed the water much more than the sand...too bad he can't swim because this brave boy had to be held back from the water. If the waves didn't reach him, he'd take off to get just a little big closer!So we ventured off to the sound to entertain the dogs and Noah. I hadn't really planed on getting wet, but this kid loved the water he could play in, so in I stayed. I had "sand burn"on my knees from walking around with him...finally had to pull him out to give me a break!
The sunset after a storm.
This toy was the source of much adult and child entertainment!
Sunrise the morning we left...so hard to say goodbye!

...the thought of wearing shoes is disturbing
...the thought of wearing anything but a bathing suit and dress is also disturbing
...you don't remember where your curling iron is because you have done nothing with your hair for a week
...all of a sudden you can't sleep at 9pm because you've been going to bed after 11 for a week
...you haven't driven a car in week...besides the trip home
...you house stinks when you get back because you forgot to take the trash out before you left because you were so excited...(that's my bad)
...you proudly display your raccoon eyes and strap tans
...you are now the proud owner of dollar store sunglasses because the ocean ate yours (you are fab Cay Cay) and the owner of a pirate ship kite your husband caught while fishing...(oh if you could have seen the excitement around that one!)
...you can't possibly eat off of anything else besides a paper plate
...you are so exhausted to be back that your one year old sleeps till 7am (finally) and your dog sleeps all day too
...you wake up missing the sound of the waves
...you are way to lazy to put pictures from your vacation on the computer because that would take the energy you just don't have right now! I used all the energy I could find to get dressed for church this morning! More pics and stories to come!

This was more Noah's speed, he did end up in it at one point.
He was a happy guy, I can't wait to see him at the beach!

This is what had inspired me to decorate Noah's bathroom with a fish theme. He made this at daycare, and I love it. It was just the baggie that said Noah's Ocean on it, I framed it and added the seashell. I plan on changing out the tape with something else. Best part is, these frames have been sitting around here forever...as well as the shells!

Our first child is Mandy. No she doesn't normally wear clothes, it was a Christmas present. Mandy is the true definition of a female dog. She doesn't like a whole lot of people or other animals...she barks too much, growls at people, but I love her, she's just misunderstood! After a few years (and in true ark fashion - gotta have two of everything) we had to get another dog...I think Richie just wanted a "real" dog. We then welcomed our second child into the home, Kapone. Kapone came into our lives this cute, cuddly, non-shedding puppy.
Two years later we now have a 80 lb., drooling, shedding, but still cuddly, thinks he's puppy, dog! Love him to death, and he's the best toy Noah could have. Mandy has learned to love him, but its definitely a sibling relationship!
Now to our human child! Noah entered this world June 8th, 2008, 2 in the morning. He arrived two weeks early because he was tired of waiting...and he's been ready to go ever since. After 38 weeks of swollen feet, gestational diabetes, two trips to the hospital for high heart rates, being breach, Noah decided he was choosing his own birthday, not the one the doctors had chosen for him. We were so happy to have him out and with us. At 8lb 12oz, and an amazingly large head, he was a big guy, but we loved every piece of him. Having Noah has taught me what life is all about, loving each other no matter what...life is too short to worry about the stupid fights, enjoy every moment, no matter how exciting or boring and be thankful you have that moment.
Noah just celebrated his first birthday. This has probably been the fastest year ever! Noah now walks, says "Hi", gives kisses, and thinks he's the funniest kid ever...I'd have to agree with him. When we first choose to name him Noah, it was because I looked at his ultrasound picture and decided he looked like a Noah...don't ask. But as Richard and I became more involved in church and became closer with God, I read a lot more about Noah, and why God chose Noah to build the ark. My hope for my child is that he has that same kind of love and faith in God.

These are the men in my life...Noah is the cute one, and Richard's the big guy...not that he isn't cute too! They are both blessings in my life and both continue to teach me new things everyday!
