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!

Anaheim – Part 3 – Beach Day followed by a visit with family

The most important thing for us to do while in Southern Ca was to spend as much time with our LPA “family” as we could so on Sunday, when there wasn’t much going on at the hotel, I planned a day out in Huntington Beach.  HB is about 15 miles from where the Convention Hotel was, but being a Sunday, everyone under the sun was heading there as well.  We swung by the hotel and picked up the Wise family and it took us over an hour to get to HB and find somewhere to park.  We’re lucky we left when we did because a few other families left 10 minutes after us and it took them 2 hours to get there – don’t you just love Southern CA and it’s traffic!

Caty and Caden  - friends for life!


She didn’t care that the water was so cold – I’ll take Maui ocean over CA anyday!

Working together


Such a fun day – got a little too much sun – those clouds sure can fool you!

We headed back to the hotel to drop Trisha, Caden and Dan off then drove out to Corona where my cousins live.  We had a great visit with Jon, Natalia, Ella and Gavin.  Jon is the son of my Uncle Barry who passed away 2 years ago from pancreatic cancer.  We don’t get to see Jon, Nat and the kids too often but the kids had a great time playing together.  Ella turned 2 back in January so she and Hanna aren’t too far off in age.  And Gavin was born in December of this past year.
