Welcome to my blog!

Thank you for taking the time to stop by and visit! We hope to share with you our journey of raising a child with Achondroplasia, the most common type of dwarfism. If this is your first time here, please start by reading Caitlyn's Story. It will share the beginning of her life with you. Enjoy!

Trip #2 to the cabin


I was looking through my posts the other day and saw that my post about our second trip to the cabin was missing, then I thought OOPS, I totally forgot to do it! So better late then never.

We spent 4 days up at the cabin with my parents. The weather was beautiful and we spent our time playing around the cabin - in the dirt, with the hot wheel cars, finding pine cones and even had a bon fire.

OOEY GOOEY SMORES!!

Playing catch with Daddy and Papa

We almost had to scrape the dirt off at the end of the day!

We spent the afternoons at the beach with Caitlyn playing in the lake.

She LOVES the lake

She would just hop into her floaty and take off swimming!


We made two fishing attempts, but I guess the Pinecrest fish had no desire for the bait on the end of Caty's dora fishing pole. We didn't even have a single bite! Oh well, she had fun and that is what counts. And I got a lot of great pictures while on the boat!

Trying to catch the big one, okay any one would have done just fine!

We love what time we get to spend up there, as being in Pinecrest is so relaxing, not to mention that we had Nana and Papa there to help play with Caitlyn. It gives Scott and I some down time. We spent time reading; each of us finishing our books that we brought along. We'll be heading back up there over the weekend of September 5-7 for an LPA camping weekend. Okay, so we'll be staying in the cabin and everyone else will be camping, but still, it will be a fun weekend!

The pictures are priceless! What great memories you are building for Caty - camping trips are what I remember most about my childhood - fun, fun, fun!

Hi Jamie,

I came across your blog when Tonya and I met (long story) and have been following your story ever since. Just stopping by to say hi and introduce myself.

I recently joined the blogging world because I was talked into it by a couple friends from high school.

What a great "camper" Caty is! We had a fire a couple weeks ago and I made the kids Smores - except they refused to eat them - they only wanted the hersey's bars! Has Caty gotten to start pre-school yet (can you tell I'm catching up on posts)?
