Happy Birthday!

Happy birthday to you...happy birthday to you! Jaxon turned one last friday and boy did we have a party! I cannot believe how fast this past year has flown by and how fast jaxon has gone from a chubby little baby to this little boy! Does anyone know how to slow time??
For his birthday bash my brother and his family came up to celebrate (yeah, we love you guys), since most of Matt's family have left us all alone. We wish you all could have been there with us! We went to the childrens discovery garden at Thanksgiving point, which was really fun. I had never been there before and the kids really liked it. We got lost in the maze, crawled in bear caves, and played in the water
After coming back we had some friends and more family over for a bbq with cake and Ice-cream. I have to brag about the cake because I helped make it and I love it! Matt's sister Christina helped make it beautiful no doubt! (thanks a ton!) and he destroyed it.....

Summer Time!

Has it seriously almost been a month since we have posted?! I am sorry to everyone in the blogging world that keeps updated on these things! Don't give up on us...we are still alive! On the not so exciting side, nothing too new has been going on. Just the same ol' routine of trying to keep Jaxon under control! He is one crazy little boy, but aren't all little boys crazy?
However; on the very exciting side of things he has officially started walking! It still isn't his full on mode of transportation (still a little tipsy), but I would give it another week or so. We are such proud parents! Here are a few pictures of some of our happenings in the last month...
A week or so ago, on the way home from the lake we stopped by tasty El Pollo Loco for some dinner and Jaxon had a um...incident and we had no backup plan, so we improvised....poor kid!
A week ago all of matt's brothers and sisters came over with their cute little kiddies to go swimmin' in the pool! It is so funny to see them all together playing, fighting, and whatever else they decide to do at the moment!
