It’s a Bird… It’s a Plane…

No wait, it’s Josh!!




My crazy husband decided that going sky diving just once wasn’t enough, so, he and Tom went this weekend to celebrate their very belated birthdays.  We’ve been trying to schedule a time to go for the past two months, and today finally worked out for everyone.  Lo and I watched safely from the ground, as Josh went on his second tandem jump and Tom did his first.  We all had a BLAST! 




They got all suited up in this very attractive jump gear.  I think teal is Josh’s color, don’t you?


On their harness is a altimeter which tracks their elevation.  When this baby gets up to 13,000 feet, you jump! 


During their jump, they had a free fall for about 60 seconds and during that time, dropped about 7,000 feet.  After that, it’s smooth sailing; the parachute is pulled and you get to coast the rest of the way down and enjoy the view.

They each had an easy landing, and felt great when they landed!  We were so happy to see our men safely on the ground!!

    My Story
    Welcome to my life…

    Over the past three years it has been flipped upside down. I am 31 years old, and married to my hubby of three years, Josh. We have 4 beautiful angel babies, who are fondly known as our “Green Beans”. The first of my quads, Heidi, held on as long as she could and was born on January 31, 2009 after pPROMing at 17 weeks. A few weeks later, I pPROM’d with my sweet Lily. Lily, Paige, and Rylan were all born at 22 weeks on February 23, 2009. Just after being released from the hospital empty handed, I returned with a high fever and infection. Two of the nights I spent in the hospital that week, I honestly thought I was going to die. It was the sickest and most hopeless I’ve ever been. I’m pretty sure my diagnosis was a broken heart.

    Our journey to becoming parents has had its share of happiness and heartbreaks. I got through every day by staying close to Josh, friends and family, blogging, and relying on God that my future will be bright. All the love and support I’ve gotten has greatly helped me manage……I am alive and well, and want to be my absolute best as a result of this.

    On May 1st 2011, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Taylor, into this world. She is our miracle baby and brings so much joy and happiness in our lives. She is such a gift from God.

    I have come out of all of this with a better appreciation of life. I hope to make the best of this situation by helping others who will experience a similar loss.
