This one is for you Mel .. :)






so I took another break from my blog and I am sorry to my one and only reader and fan club member for doing so. She didn't bug me much to start writing again but she did keep on checking my blog to see if there was a new post and she would let me know she checked it so thank you Mel for caring and wanting to read about my life stories.
so on another note, we took our first family trip ever this past weekend to Niagara falls and we had a blast. It was very exciting for me because I obviously being the mom like to document every first Addis has and this was our FIRST FAMILY VACATION... Sorry I just get really happy and excited when I say it and think about it. He was his usual happy chatty self on the drive up and he did take a nap so the trip started off really well. We stayed at a hotel called the skyline inn and it was located near the American boarder and the falls so it was nice and close to the strip and to a lot of good restaurants. The hotel was joined to another hotel by a walkway that took you to the indoor waterpark called the fallsview waterpark. this waterpark was huge and was located on the roof of the other hotel so you could imagine what we were thinking. Addis and I had fun hanging out in the wave pool and getting splashed abet. There was also another pool located outside of the waterpark that had basketball nets and stuff so obscures daddy took advantage of that and played some water hoops with addis. unfortunately we didn't bring our camera into the waterpark because we were not sure where we were going to put it and I didn't want to risk losing it or getting it stolen since we weren't by our clothes the whole time so I didn't take any pictures of it... I know I suck cause I really did want to take pictures but oh well..
but anyhow it was a blast and I loved the fact that we got to spend so much time with Dave since he had 4 days off in a row. He works so hard and a lot of hours during the week and sometimes even weekends so its a rare opportunity that we get so many days with him but it was special for us and I am happy he did this for us.
oh almost forgot my story about the lady at the hotel... So our hotel had this courtyard that our room looked over so I took Addis down there at around 7:30 in the morning so we can just sit and enjoy the sunshine and nature. Addis makes friends everywhere we go so he was all happy and people were stopping to say hi to him so it was kind of nice to see so many friendly people. Now he wasn't screaming or doing the usual morning babble but just being a little vocal at this point and I figured that it wasn't that loud so I just let him crawl around and play until this lady comes out of nowhere ( well she came out of her room but anyhow) and starts giving me this dirty look. So I said to her," I am sorry are we bothering you"?.. Rely ,"yes do you mind we are trying to get some sleep"... In a very bitchly tone. So I said sorry again and she shut her room door and we went back to your room in dismay. Now I know it was only 7:30 am but really now... She didn't have to be bitchy about it, especially when a baby is just having fun and playing...
well that's about it, I did add some pictures of our trip and one of Addis eating his FIRST popsicle ever all by himself !! Anyone want to guess how messy he was when he was done ??

I'm a li-ttle offended Ledawit! I just so happen to check your blog every time I'm on. I AM the first to comment aren't I?? Hmph! ;) (just razzin' ya by the way)

Sounds like you had a great time in Niagara Falls, and I can't believe that crazy woman at the hotel. You should've told her they sell anti-bitch pills in the lobby for 2.99. Ha, that would've got her goat I'm sure!

It's so nice to see you're writing in your blog again - I was expecting to see the same post as always! Thanks for making me feel special - I'll always be one of your #1 fans :)

Glad to hear the trip went well (I actually called you friday morning to see if you guys got out of town before noon) in spite of that mean lady. How anybody can resist Addis I'll never know...

hope to see another post soon!!
