Our little Pyro..............









So this past weekend, Tim, Hudson and I traveled to OhioPyle state park here in PA for a little camping. I wasn't sure how the whole sleeping under the stars thing would go for me since I am now 8 months pregnant and enormous. But Hudson was so pumped to go and just kept saying, "mommy, camping, catch nemo" so of course we couldn't say no. I was actually really glad we went and amazingly enough, I slept most of the night and used my will power to fight the urge of having to make 50 bathroom trips in the middle of the night. It is amazing what the mind can do........

We went with our neighbors and really good friends the Irvings, and spent the night and most of the day up there. We had a blast hanging out by the fire, checking out the natural waterslides and waterfalls and then fishing by the river. It was absolutely beautiful there. The more I see of Pittsburgh in the summer, the more I LOVE it. We had to drive through these small little towns with these unbelievably beautiful farms and I just kept thinking to myself....I could live there and there and there, if only my family lived there too. So I think everyone should start thinking a little bit.....Erica and Tyler are getting closer with moving to CT, which I am so completely pumped about- within driving distance....I am already planning my first trip. Anyway, it really is beautiful this time of year.

So we had a great time and it seems that with every trip we go on, we learn a little more about ourselves and especially our child. Turns out, Hudson is a Pyro. He is definitely related to the Tuttle side of things since Tyler and basically everyone in my family is obsessed with fire. He would not keep sticks out of the fire and honestly thought it was the coolest thing in the world to stick it in and then pull it out and have it flaming up. I have included some pictures.

Anyway, we love you all and hope you are doing great. Only 5 weeks left.....I am definitely counting down the days. I will keep you updated. Tate Almon Mosher is almost here!!

You are almost done and I am half way through. Good luck with the last five weeks. And I see you finally posted his name... good choice. That is what our first boy's name will be when he decides to come. He lost a battle with his sister and she got to come first. Haha.

you are brave to go camping at 8 months pregnant! Is that Tim going down the natural waterslide? It looked way to dangerous when we were there earlier this summer...very brave...both of you! Good luck and we hope the next few weeks fly by.

Hey Tanis! Just checking in again and wanted to say hi! I can't believe you went camping 8 months pregnant. You go girl!! Good luck with everything in the next little while with your baby coming. How exciting!! By the way, your sister is now Marissa's ballet teacher! Pretty fun. Marissa loves her!

Tanis- It's been a LONG time. I can't even remember the last time that we ran into each other. I didn't even know you had a little boy and now you almost have two! It sounds like you are doing great. I am glad to hear that. Good luck with your new baby. I hope all goes well. Nicole

You guys are always having fun! Hudson truly gets the love of fire from your side. Can you see one of us Mosher girls playing with fire? It is a funny thought. With our luck and outdoor skills, we would most likely start the mountain on fire! Hudson is such a cutie. I love your pics. Thanks for sharing!
If you have time check out my blog. I think you will recognize the title picture and the ones of the kids. Thanks again for taking them for us! I have gotten SO MANY compliments on them.

Congrats on baby Tate! I am so excited for you and Tim. Send or post pictures when you have time (if there really is ever time, right!?)
