Happy Birthday Uncle Jesse!!

We took a long weekend and drove down to see Jesse for his 20th birthday. He is attending NNU in Nampa, Idaho where he is a sophomore and an RA in his dorm. We had a great time on our visit. It's hard to believe that Jesse turned 20 - it seems like just yesterday that he was starting kindergarten :-) Jason and I started dating when he was 4 years old!!! Here are a few photos from our trip.

Jaxon and Jesse in Jesse's dorm room.

Swimming in the hotel pool, which Jaxon loved!

He was even brave enough to jump in from the side of the pool, and wanted to do it again and again!

On a hay ride to pick out our pumpkin and the pumpkin patch.

Jaxon looking for the perfect one. It was a beautiful day in Nampa.

Just a cool picture.

Happy Birthday Aunt Heidi!

My sister's birthday was in October and we had the pleasure of celebrating with her. Went to dinner at a Thai restaurant and then back to our house for cake. Jaxon loves his Aunt Heidi or Aboo as he calls her :-)

My dad putting candles on the cake, he insisted that there be exactly 37 !

Diabetes Walk

One of our good friends son, Cameron, was diagnosed with Diabetes a few years ago and this year we had the pleasure of walking with them in the Diabetes Walk through the Riverfront Park Area. It was inspirational to see all the kids who have diabetes get together for this great fundraiser. I'm sure this will become an annual event for all of us!

Jaxon and Chase meeting Otto the Spokane Indian's mascot.

Cameron - he is such a great little boy. I say little boy because we have been friends with his parents since before he was born. It's been so much fun to watch him grow up!

And the birthday week continues....

Each year the Spokane Interstate Fair comes right around Jaxon's birthday. This year was even more fun because he loved the lights, the sounds, the people and especially the animals. He was ecstatic to see the cows. We have a video of it that is absoloutely adorable, the moment that he realized they were real was just priceless :-)

Here are a few photos from our fun evening at the Fair.

Here we go!

Mommy and Jaxon, love that little grin he does these days.

One of his favorite ways to get around - on daddy's shoulders.

He wanted to ride the rides, all it took was one look at Grandpa and Grandpa was in line buying him tickets for the rides. We had to search for ones that he was tall enough to go on, after being turned away at a few, we found the spinning bears. At first he wasn't too sure, but after we were done he just kept saying - again, again. (not sure who the little boy was, he was just on the ride by himself, so we joined him)

After the bear ride.

On to the tea cups.

September 12th - Birthday Dinner!

On the night of Jaxon's birthday we went to dinner at the Onion with Jaxon's grandparents and Aunt Heidi. More attention, more presents, and more sugar - he LOVED it! Here are a few pictures from that evening.

Jaxon's Party at School...

Jaxon had "school" on Monday, his birthday, so we took treats over after nap time. They celebrated by singing to Jaxon and then eating clown ice cream cones from Baskin Robbins, they were definitely a HIT with all the kids in his class. And as you can see by the pictures below, Jaxon really loved them too. I think he consumed more sugar in the two days Sunday and Monday then he had his whole life up until that point - oh well, he only turns two once :-)

Good morning birthday boy!

I love birthdays - as soon as Jaxon woke up on Monday, the 12th we started celebrating. Jason and I sang happy birthday and he blew out candles in his blueberry muffin. Too cute!

Jaxon's 2nd Birthday Party!

We celebrated Jaxon's 2nd birthday with our family and friends on Sunday, September 11th at Discovery Park in the Valley. It is an ideal park for toddlers. It was a very nice and HOT day, and Jaxon had tons of fun - playing, eating pizza, opening presents, running through the splash pad, and of course eating cupcakes! Thank you so much to everyone who was there to help us celebrate our little boy turning two!!

Exploring all the features of the park - he LOVES the in ground trampoline!

Dual slide!

Walking through one of the nature areas with Kaila, his best bud! He'll follow her anywhere :-)

Group shot of all the kids who were at the party!

Cupcakes! When I asked Jaxon what kind of cake he wanted for his birthday he said "Caramel" So, luckily I was able to find caramel frosting - I had never had it before, but luckily it turned out delicious!

Not quite sure about everyone singing to him!

Digging in to a cupcake.

Rinsing off in the splash pad.

Opening presents. He was thoroughly spoiled again this year - and he loves all of his new toys, books, and clothes.

Outfit change and back to the splash pad for more water - you can tell by a lot of the pictures how red his cheeks were that day. It was really hot, but he just wanted to keep playing and playing :-)

Hugs from Great Grandma, or Grammy as he calls her!

Say "Cheesecake" which Jaxon thought was hilarious and he just couldn't stop laughing. With Grandpa Greg as we were loading up to leave.
