Camping / life update again

Well we just got back from our first camping trip together ever, and with out Madison. We left her with Grandma Skinner, so we could enjoy some time with out a crying baby in the car and in the middle of the night. We also are trying to get her use to staying at the Skinners, seeing that they will be watching her for a whole week while we are on our cruise in October. Needless to say, she did great and was busy doing all kinds of things with them.
We camped on the Klamath River, and it was just beautiful. I thought it was going to be a lot colder than what it was, but it was surprising very nice. We had a great time at the ocean just walking on the beach.

Madison is 16 months and growing like a weed right now. Everyone keeps telling me how she is getting so tall, and she really is! Her vocabulary is growing as well. It unbelievable how from week to week she has something new she is doing. She is just so cute when she dances!!! And she loves to dance! I just bought her a potty chair to start the training process. She has been letting me know when she is poo-pooing so I figured why not start now!

David is starting the master program on Saturday, and will have class every sat for the next 2 years. We are still praying for a good job for him. It has been tough having him stay in Weaverville while he works for the week. I just have to keep thinking this won't be forever! As for me I will probably be working most weekends now till Christmas, which is good, but less time I get to spend with David. We are making things work though so i am able to stay home with Madison. It is also a nice little break for me to get out and feel like a normal person. I am also wanting to take the photography class at the college this semester. I just registered the other day for it. :)

Hope you all are doing good, that is about it I think. Hopefully it won't be to long before my next blog!

Life up-date

David and I have book a cruise to Mexico! I am so excited about it because there are a bunch of people going on it that I know! Since our last cruise David and I decided to only take another one if we could get friends to go with us, because we would just have that much more fun! We have a really big group going so I know it's going to be a BLAST. We are leaving Madison with Grandma Skinner, and she is just beside her self excited about it. We will be going in October, which is close to my birthday and our 4 year anniversary!

Madison is doing great! She is just so fun, the older she gets the more fun she is! I love every stage of life so far, but every stage just gets better and better. We are having to learn how to shape her strong willed personality, which is one of the hardest things to do right now! I need a class i think! :) She is healthy and strong seeing that we exposed her to chicken pox 2 times and never got it! There was definate saliva exchange as well, but nothin. We start our first swim class on Monday as well! I know she is just going to love it. I have 2 friends taking the class with us, so I know we will have a great time.

Since David graduated he has been insearch for a good job. He is still working for his dad in Weaverville as of right now. He will be interviewing in Sacramento for a job he would really like. He already did a phone interview with them, but this next one is with 3 head people with the company. So keep him in your prayers as his interview is on Tuesday.

That's about it in a nut shell right now, I hope you all are doing fabulous!

David, Madison and I, just got back from visiting Davids sister in San Fransisco! We had so much fun. We took Madison to the zoo one day, and she just loved being able to run around and look at all the animals. I must admit that I am not much of a zoo person but it was a lot of fun.

Bekah and I went yard saleing on sat. We founds a few good things, but most were over priced for a yard sale! Common people its a yard sale if you want to get rid of your stuff then make it cheap! They were selling stuffed animals for $2 when most are 25 cents. It was still fun just to cruise around the town and see what the area was like.

Hre are photos from our trip. Thank you Bekah and Jason for making it a great time for us! I also appriciate you getting up with Madison so we could sleep in, your the best. We love you guys so much. :)

Wow it's been a while since I have blogged! Sorry, Madison sure has been keeping me busy, along with me working on the weekends. We are also getting ready to head down to San Fransisco this weekend to visit Davids sister. I haven't even had a chance to edit my Texas visit.

This last memorial day we made it to Trinity lake, which is up where Davids parents live in Weaverville. We had a blast! A perfect day with great friends and family. We all love getting a little sun, and the boys and Shawna enjoyed getting behind the boat. Kristen and I enjoyed being in the front of the boat soaking up the sun and watching them.

Madison is 14 months old now and developing so quickly! She is starting to imitate words we say now, and even learning what some of them are. It is just so much fun to watch her personality unfold! I still can't believe it has gone by so fast and that she is so big now! Here are some of her words she says now...Uh oh, bye-bye, hot, peaz, thank you, mamma, dada, paco, all done, well that's all I can think of right now, but I know there is more. Of course some of them are just the sound of the word, but you can tell that's what she is saying.

David graduated with his BA in business about a week ago! He is going on for his maters, which will take 2 years and every single sat till then! We both know it will be worth it. Especially while the job market is slow right now, it is a good time to be in school. I am so proudof him and his accomplishments! He is such a great daddy to Madison, and one amazing man to be married to! I am so lucky to have him in my life. So Cheers to you babe, thank you so much for all your hard work and dedication to making our life better.

So I thought I would post some pictures from our day and a few other recent pictures of Madison. Enjoy :)
