Memorial Day Weekend 2010

Sunday Jaxon's Birthday we went out to Antelope Island, he wanted to go climb rocks, so went and grilled. It was nice and warm, but the bugs are getting bad, so we won't be back out for a while.

Jax turned 6, I still can't believe it, I found myself staring at him all day wondering where time went. He is so grown up now! I made his cake and I had to cook NOTHING, so it turned out good.

Monday, Memorial Day we went to the pool. We had a blast and actually for being as overcasted as it is, we still got fried. Love the pool and will be here MANY more times this summer.

Jaxon 6th Birthday

6 years ago tomorrow I became the one thing I always dreamed of....A MOM!!! I can't believe I have a 6 year old, its crazy! Jaxon was the best baby, I love to brag about him, because he slept through the night at 2 weeks, was a good eater, hardly ever sick and was a great toddler. He grew up too fast though, I swear he went from 2 to 5. We decided this year not to do a big party because Mommy is partied out, Jax was just fine with that, all he wants is to go swimming! I gave him his Birthday present early so he could have time to play with it before he got all his other stuff. He got a lego set that he has been eye balling for a while now, he got 2 notepads, some twistables and goggles for swimming, plus I went and bought him 3 outfits last night. He is growing super fast!

Some things about Jax:

*He has a heart of gold, he will do anything for anyone.
*He has taken on coloring and will color all day.
*He is VERY forgiving.
*He loves his teacher and really looks up to her.
*He doesn't always have to win, he just likes to get things done. (for example, the kids have races down the street and Jax will let the little kids go first.)
*He loves his bike.
*He loves anything outdoors and especially camping.
*He loves to eat.
*He is a great big brother.
*He is a morning person, but will also stay up late too.
*He loves to help with things.
*His favorite color is currently orange.
*He loves his trucks, cars, boats and motorcycles.
*He loves legos.
*He loves to watch cops on TV.
*He is starting to try more things.
*He hates anything that has pepper in it.
*He doesn't like ketchup (got this from his Dad).
*He randomly asks for things like the other day he wanted my Grandma to make cherry pie.
*He loves to talk.

This kid has been through so much, but through it all, he still has strength and determination to do whatever he wants to do. I admire him, he has a strong heart and is such a caring person. Jax, you mean the world to me and I wish you nothing but the best. Happy 6th Birthday Buddy!

Funny kids

I love that my kids can think of anything and have fun with it! The other night Lex sat in her baby stroller and then Ash started pushing her around, she giggled and smiled the whole time.

We survived!

I can't believe that Jaxon's first year of school is coming to an end. I would love to say this was the easiest thing on earth and this year was a piece of cake, but I would be lying. It was challenging at first, but the end results are priceless. Jax has learned so much, currently he is exceeding all expectations and doing great. He loves school and is ready for 1st grade, but says he will take a good break first. He is ready for riding bikes non-stop, playing in the dirt, going to the pool and staying up late (not too late, but past 8pm). Below are a few of my favorites from this school year, although everything he has brought home makes me smile. This boy is growing up, sometimes I just stare at him in amazement. He will be 6 on Sunday and I wonder where the time went, I hardly remember his baby and toddler years they flew by too fast. He is such a great child, he has come so far and I am so proud of him for all he has accomplished. He is so strong and can do whatever he puts his mind to.

Jaxon consumes most of his time by doing the below. He loves to color or doodle, I think its great, he has NEVER ever wanted anything to do with anything crafty and now he loves this stuff. Notice on of the pictures at the top is the girls name "Emma", apparently he has a crush on her. I swear he is too young and I am trouble.
