We had dinner the other night with some good friends, the Kearney's. We walked down to the Bunny Fountains - aptly named for the 3 dancing bunny statues on the top of the hill, which, by the way, Brian thinks are kinda creepy. Logan (Sarah and Blake's little boy) and Georgia were LOVING running in the water. Jackson enjoyed himself as well, and even walked straight through the water!
Happy 1st Birthday Jackson! We had a wonderful birthday for Jackson. We had some friends over and had cake and ice cream and jumped in the bouncy castle. (Jackson attacked his cousin Emma in there). Brian cut him the biggest piece of birthday cake I have ever seen! Of course, the boy ate all of it - no messing around there! The next day we went to El Vaquero (only the best Mexican restaurant ever!) and all of the servers there came in and sang to Jack. He even wore the sombrero - Ole!I can't believe our little baby boy is already 1! He seems so young compared to Georgia - the time has just flown by. We just love him so much and it is so incredible to see his little personality coming out already!
Well everyone, it has been awhile. Here is a brief synopsis of the past month...
The last time I wrote, we were in Tennessee. We had a wonderful time hiking around the Smoky Mountains. Georgia loved it! She hiked up a muddy 1.5 mile trail to see some waterfalls. Brian carried her down as she was pretty tired afterward.
Brian's brother, Justin, got married the following Saturday. The wedding was beautiful. Georgia was the flower girl. Although she did walk down the aisle, she did not throw a single flower, but who cares? I was just happy that she walked down and didn't try to throw all of the petals down the storm drain (the wedding was outside and she actually did this at the rehearsal). What more can you ask from a 2 1/2 year old? Here is a picture of the first dance. Allison was beautiful (as always!)
The following weekend we had some old friends come out from Fort Wayne, the Rozelle's. It is always so fun to see them. Jay and Katie have two kiddos (Jacob and Sarah) who are right about the same age as our kids, so that is always fun. They played together like they hadn't missed a beat, and we had a great time catching up. There is something special about spending time with friends when you have a history together that makes it really relaxing and enjoyable. This picture screams future wedding slideshow to me! Other than that, not a lot has been going on! We have been trying to get more settled into our house and make it our home. Brian and Georgia are getting good at the tag-team lawn mowing. We had a wonderful Mother's Day. We dedicated both kiddos at church on Sunday. We are having an open house/Jackson's 1st bday party on Saturday from 1-3, so if you are reading this, we would love for you to stop by. Call if you need directions. Oh yeah, and one more little thing...we're pregnant!!!
