Welcome to our town…

Hi..and welcome to Ohio

I’m joining Shannon on her around the world in eighty blogs.So I thought what the heck challenges can be fun so here we go…

Alot can be said about our little town.We are considered a tourist town in Summer.People come from all over to see  the sternwheel boats lining up along the bank of the river.Marietta comes with alot of old buildings that have turned into cute shops that you can walk through on your way to view our river.The views from the old train bridge can be amazing,but if train bridges arent your thing you can view the river from the many parks that sit along the river.While here you should view our little museum to learn all about our history.The Campus Martius is a cute little museum that also sits along the river.Are you getting the picture yet lol..our whole town is surrounded by the rivers that border us..So now I will leave you with some of our breathtaking views that you can see if you ever want to visit us…

So my thoughts on living in this town.My likes are lower crime rates,smaller schools,we have nice parks and great views,my family all lives here and we are close so that makes it nice.Some of the dislikes include how bad the traffic can be in the summer when everyone wants to pay visit,they shut our downtown down for festivals we have during the summer and its a real mess,when I had my surgery on my brain and spine to remove a cancerous tumor we had to drive two hours away to a good hospital to have the procedure done.After several days in the hospital and coming home with nineteen staples in my head that two hours was the longest of my life.Its nice that we are a friendly community it sucks that we dont have alot of the different choices for restaurants that bigger cities have.What can I say I love food and get excited about trip away just for food choices lol.Shopping can also be a drawback we have a mall,but not as many stores as bigger cities.Being built around rivers can be bad in times of alot of rain…A few years ago it rained so bad our schools flooded,downtown flooded,you couldnt get anywhere unless you had a rowboat it was crazy people lost so much and we lost alot of our mom and pop establishments because the funds werent their to rebuild.I was happy at that time that we lived on a huge hill that just overloooked the river.Anyways thanks for visiting with us we hope to see you again soon..

btw:I cheated on photos the only one thats mine is my family photo I havent felt good the past couple days…

It’s hard to believe that you are four today.It feels like yesterday I brought you home.And to think if the Doctors had their way you wouldn’t be here at all.When we found out you were a boy we also found out that the ventricles in your brain were swollen.My already high risk pregnancies stepped up another notch..Its ok because it has been worth every minute.Daddy and I told the Dr. that we would love you know matter what…lots of prayers were said and they were answered because in those last few weeks it cleared up and you were perfect.I was finally allowed up from the bedrest and my blood pressure was high again.I was contracting in my back and they decided to admit me overnight for observation.Its a good thing they did.At about four a.m. I paged the nurse because I thought that I spilled water all over myself.yeah right when I stood even more water went everywhere…my bag of waters had broke.All chaos broke out..dadddy and the nurse tried to clean me up and get me situated.They decided to check me again bacause the contractions came one after another…the nurse grabbed the phone by the bed and screamed at me to keep my legs closed..She could see your head.She called the Dr. and told him not to even stop at the stop lights because she wasn’t delivering a baby..My dr. made it in record time.you came screaming into the world at 4:14 a.m. 6lb and 9 oz…and perfect in everyway.We survived the episode naturally you decided to come so fast that mommy didn’t even get an epidural…you have enriched our lives so much.Mischievous is the best word to describe you.Your brown eyes always twinkle with thoughts of things to get into.You are our silly child.Anything you can do that will make somebody smile makes you happy.You look up to your bubby and are lost without him.The bond you guys share amazes me.All I can say is thanks for choosing us Braidi.Daddy and I love you.
