Andrews new bedroom!

When Andrew turned 3 we asked people to get him stuff for his room. We knew he was outgrowing his crib and we had to get him in a "big boy" bed. I had been doing alot of research and found the perfect bedding. It's from Olive Kids! It is so cute. After I found his bedding I knew exactly how I wanted to paint his room. Now, I have always had help painting. Usually my mom comes over but they have been busy and I just wanted to get it done. I decided that I was going to try it myself! I love how it came out. It took 4 days but that is with Tony working and the kids being home! Here are some pictures!

Walking on the beach!!!!

When we were in Portsmouth, we decided to take a 20 minute ride and go to Hampton Beach! We love it there! I really wanted to experience watching Andrew walk on the sand/beach all by himself. It is something that I never thought I would see. I took those little things for granted with the girls. I was filled with emotions watching him walk on the beach! He is just so proud!! Here are some pictures! Enjoy!

MDA Bootcamp!

We were invited to go to the Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont MDA Bootcamp in Portsmouth, NH. For those of you who don't know, the MDA host's this event for the firefighters from around these states to "pump them up" for fundraising for the year! The firefighters meet families affected with MD/ALS so they can really get an idea of what the families go through. I was asked to speak and that was challenging but I got through it! It is easy to talk to a large crowd when it is something you are passionate about. There was also fun activities for the kids. Julia and Hannah decorated the firefighters name tags with flowers and rainbow stickers!!! Julia challenged them to a race to put together Mr. Potato Head! She had a blast and the firefighters did too! Here are some pictures from that day!
