Jaxson is really into Indiana Jones right now. We took him to the theater with us to see the 4th one and now he runs around the house using whatever he can find as a whip (belts, rope, shoelaces, rubber snakes etc.....) He even sings the theme song - or trys to at least (he gets a few notes right). So my mom got him an Indiana Jones action figure. Only problem with that is it came with an actual whip. Just what he needs. Thanks mom. He loves it but for some reason (cause he's Jaxson) he won't leave it's clothes on so they're all lost now.
He is so cute. He gets so excited about little things. This is right after he blew out the candles.
I can't believe my baby is 4 years old. On top of that I just turned 35 a couple weeks ago. I think I've officially hit middle age. Yikes!! Jaxson might be my biggest trial in life but I sure do love him and wouldn't trade him for anything (even my sanity!)

The weather was brutal this year. We always get rain every year but never as much as we had this year. It started raining late Saturday afternoon and it didn't stop until Sunday afternoon. And we got WET!! We had WET tents & bedding, all the kids had WET shoes & clothes, most of our chairs were WET. It was miserable. My mom, Crystal and her kids ended up going home a day early because they were out of dry clothes and their bedding was too wet. The rest of us stuck it out but we did cheat a little. My sister Kelly lives in Eager which was just about 40 minutes from our campsite. Tammie & her two kids, and Me, Jaxson, Haley & Amber all drove into town the last two nights and stayed at her house. The guys stayed at camp and roughed it in Tammie & Jeff's trailer (it even got a little wet inside). Once it quit raining on Sunday it stayed pretty dry after that but it was COLD. Thankfully the kids were able to stay warm enough and they had a blast. As for me, I just considered the whole trip a grand adventure in the great outdoors. And I was never so happy to crawl into my DRY, WARM bed.
We also had two birthdays while we were there. Jaxson turned 4 on Saturday and my mom turned ?? on Sunday. This is a picture of both of them but I think the birthday girl was a little camera shy.
Here's Kaleb. I don't know what is on his face but it looked like this the whole time.
The boys built this awesome fort. I wish I had better pictures of it. They made this little cave out of tree branches. It even had a door.
Here's the whole gang. I took this not too long after it stopped raining. I think the older kids had had enough by this point.
Jaxson just loves being outside with dad when he's doing the lawns. Mom also loves it when dad is doing the lawns because that means I get a break - some Jaxson FREE time. Aren't they cute. I just love Larry's sexy hat!
