Goodbye Little Gym

The Little Gym of Rowlett is moving out to Rockwall, so this is our last week there:( We've been going since Jackson was 10 months old, so I'm kind of sad that it's almost over. Here are some highlights from today:

Too cool for school. Just decided to hang out on the monkey bars while all the other kids were doing the warm-up.

Here's an activity that got his attention.
I must admit, it does look like big fun!

Bouncing like a little maniac on the air-track.

His favorite thing of the day was not the bars, beam or air-track. Nope, he made a little fort and climbed inside. Go figure.

Ta-da! Getting his medal from Miss Jessica.

Jackson decided that since he already has about 5 of these medals, I should be the one to wear this one. So thoughtful:)

To spike or not to spike

...that is the question. Jackson has a new 'do recently and I wanted to see what y'all thought about it.

Obviously, he's pretty excited about it!

Gotta play it cool ,though, for the ladies.

Let me know what you think looks better: Spiked Out or Preppy?

Happy Anniversary

Hard to believe, but it's already been 6 years since we got married. We laugh all the time about how young we really were back then. In a way, we kind of grew up together. We went to dinner last night and enjoyed ourselves immensely. We had so much fun reminiscing about our younger days! We've been friends for 20 years...that's a lot of memories right there!

Happy Anniversary, babe! I love you so very much.

A typical day in the life

As if Jackson doesn't already burn enough calories throughout his very busy day, he decided it was time to start working out on the eliptical earlier this week. He got all ready and even had me tie a make-shift headband around his forehead to catch all his sweat.

Seriously, this kid sweats like a maniac!

After his tough workout, it was time to hit the showers. He's actually started showering BY HIMSELF this week. No joke. It's one of the funniest things you've ever seen. I'm pretty sure he turned 8 overnight!

Swimming with Poppy

Jackson is turning into such a little water-bug these days. For the past few weeks, he's gone over to Memaw and Poppy's house in the afternoon. Whenever Poppy gets home from work, it's time to hop on in that pool.

I forgot to send his floaties over the other night, but they did just fine.


Maybe it even helped him learn to use his arms more. Last night he was swimming with Jared and doing really well. He went all the way across the pool and back with no help from daddo. We were so impressed!

I love the water!!

Big Boy Room!

Jackson is officially a big boy now! He's moved upstairs into his new room!

We got his furniture in this week and the room was painted today. It was so hard to choose the colors to paint his room and I was really nervous it wasn't going to turn out well. No need to worry, though--I love it!


He is really enjoying being out of his crib and has slept pretty well in his new bed. So fun:)

Jack of all Trades

Jackson is a (little) man of many talents. Last night, not only did he cook us dinner...

but he also helped assemble some new furniture!

No joke, the kid really was using the screwdriver to successfully put together his new bookshelves!

Pool Party

Yesterday afternoon we had some friends over for a fun little swim party. All the kiddos did so good in the pool and Jackson loved having more people to entertain. Here's Judah right before we went outside. This kid was ready for the water!

The whole gang in the pool

Presley and Hunter playing at the water table

Keeley, Kayden and their Mommy, Kerri all got an insiders look at Jackson's favorite part of our pool--the waterfall.

Presley and Jackson hanging out under the waterfall.

They were so cute. They'd hold hands, count to three and then jump off into the water.

Scaredy Cat Sadie

As most of you know, we are the proud owners of a very neurotic dog. Think Marley and Me and then back it off just a little bit. For real. She is terrified of storms, so it's a good thing that we were home when this random thunderstorm hit today. She always starts off with panting quite heavily.


In order to "help" her out, Tyson tries to lick the tongue that is dangling out of her mouth. Yuck. Jackson usually pets her gently and says "OK, Sadie, just thunder," as he pets her back.

Today he started off by telling her those same things, but then thought it would be really funny if he acted just like Tyson. Now, I don't think he would actually lick her tongue, but who knows! This was close enough for me!

He was thrilled with himself.

Such a silly goose:)

Happy 4th!

We spent a nice, long weekend up at Lake Texoma with our friends and families. We got lots of sun, ate plenty of food and had a great time hanging out. Here's a recap of all the festivities.

Madison sitting still for just a few seconds--not too common these days!
She has to keep up with Jackson, ya know.


Doing All-American activities, like playing baseball with two gloves...

and eating delicious watermelon.

Going for a ride on the boat. He's peeking thru Uncle Scott's sunglasses in this pic and fell asleep right afterwards. Maybe next time he'll actually get to enjoy the ride.



El Capitan and his first mate.



Lounging in the kiddie pool...

doing the same thing in the other kiddie pool:)


Playing Catch Phrase with the fam. Jackson and Maddie finally had enough of being on the ground and decided to join in on all the action.

Celebrating Uncle Andrew's Birthday. Happy 26th Birthday!


Hanging with his uncles on Sunday. Check out his new pose. Lovely.


So cute! He really does love these two:)
