Happy Independence Day!

The Fourth of July weekend has always been one of my favorites. Although it’s tough being the wife of a cop because he NEVER has this weekend off.Ā  It ended up being a lot of mama and Aiden time this weekend — which was fine with me šŸ™‚

Dan did have some free time this morning so we went on a little hike. Here are a few of my favorite pictures.

I think we tired Aiden out! It’s tough to be carried around in a carrier looking at trees, rocks and water.

I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend!


Hi, Iā€™m Melissa! I am a mama to an energetic toddler, a wife to my amazing husband Dan, and I work full-time as a meeting planner. I started this blog because, after having my little guy, I quickly learned that exhaustion and baby brain causes you to forget some of the amazing (sometimes horrible and sometimes wonderful) details related to the first several months of raising a baby. Considering we may have more kids in the future, I want to document everything we do, so we remember what worked the first time around, and hopefully help other first time mamas along the way!
