so we took a day trip to the beach today. We were in the car longer than we were at the shore but it was still a nice trip. We knew little Waffle liked the ocean but after our last trip the jury was still out with Baby Waffle....not any more! He loves it and has NO fear of it! I took some great pictures and video but we just got a new camera and I haven't had a chance to figure out the uploading so i will post them whe I get a chance to hook the camera up.
On a side note, it is a fabulous camera and I couldn't be happier to have it but (of course there is a but) I hav eogtten SO spoiled between jy phone and my iPad I am so used to instant online publication of my pictures. I am not sure how to act with having to actually download to my outer and then upload to either Facebook or my blog. By have we gotten spoiled over all!

Well mid week my friend invited to pick Little Waffle up and bring her home to their program at their church. Little Waffle was allllll over it. SOOO long story short, Little Waffle is walking very closely with God this week.

So, a couple of weekends ago we went to the beach and camped at Huntington Beach State park in South Carolina. It is really a great camp area which also has lots of nature exhibits to explore. Unfortunately the only camera I had at the time was my phone so some of the pictures aren't great but I want to share anyway.
When you first enter the park you have to cross a causeway and to the right of your car you have to look sharp because there is a lake with actual gators! Little Waffle enjoys counting to see how many she can find. If you are lucky you get to see the whole critter, one time we rode by I saw one of the guys actually doing that death roll thing they do, but generally you have to look closely to see the eyes. We never had a chance to stop to get any pictures of this part though, sorry.
After setting up camp we went down to the ocean and hung out for a bit but then went back to camp and cleaned up. While Daddy and Baby Waffle got showered and started the fire, Little Waffle and I along with our borrowed teen walked over to the walking causeway to see what we could see. The gators are kept on the other side so no close ups of them. We did get to see lots of other little critters, fiddler crabs, minnerds (as Little Waffle called them) some clams, oysters and other aquatic life. They actually recycle oyster shells in this area to help keep the oyster bed going. We walked the whole thing and then went back for some campfire time...dinner, marshmallows and bed.
The next day we started with a visit to the Education Center. They do live feedings of the aquatic life and have a 'touch tank' with a sting ray that will actually come to the side for you to pet. The kids didn't want to leave!

After that we did actually spend the rest of the day down at the beach. Baby Waffle LOVES the ocean (of course, he is my boy!) The tide had calmed down (it was rough the first day) and we all just had a ball. I am of course in NO pictures, not going to get one either not in my suit!
|I LOVE this picture!|
|there were more steaks, Daddy Waffle just has to have his burnt|
I have to give out big thanks to the borrowed teen, after dinner we left her at the tent with the littles and Mommy and Daddy Waffle actually got to have a moonlight stroll on the beach ALONE! It was soooo nice!
So anyway, that is basically our adventure. It was starting to get really hot by the next day so we got up, broke camp and headed on home. I just have to close with this one last picture.... kind of says it all.
|love that belly!|

I will post pictures from tomorrow's Exciting adventures. I the meantime, I am being eaten alive by bugs so it is off ton the potty for me, then snuggling in between my favorite men in the tent.

OH and the real kicker is when she has left her own mess behind but INSISTS on doing the dishes before she goes to bed. I love that girl I do but boy she is a mess!!!!

We have now made it a week and we are definitely bink FREE! I threw them all away last Wednesday and we really had no problems. At one point I had to take him over and physically show him where we used to stash them and the fact that no they weren't there anymore and that was it. He seemed to accept it! Baby Waffle rocks!!!
Oh and on another note, we have had one speech visit since my last post and I am happy to say that the assistant that works with us does seem to be taking a little different approach to working with him after the SLP saw us last week. While she was here Tuesday Baby Waffle took me by the hand over to the closet and pointed to the cups. I asked him did he want a drink and he said drink. Then he said it again for our speech worker.
Also while we were at a play date Saturday, he was giving some lunch or something and he not only signed thank you but while he was signing he SAID thank you. I wasn't the only one that heard it either. That actually is part of my frustration though, I know he can at times get things out but it is SO rare. I do see a little hope though so there is something. I am also starting to make some tot work for him to do that I got partially from his SLP but also from Tot School.
The downloads and printables on that site are amazing!
Well that is enough since this was only going to be a quick update. I will be back tomorrow, promise!!!
