My favorite part about flying with Larry is at the end when we're deplaning I get to kiss the pilot and say "thanks for the ride"! I love having a pilot for a husband.
Best part about the whole trip was it only cost me $40. Now that's my kind of getaway!

He wasn't very happy with me that I made him go to school. Good thing is that he said it didn't hurt. He was just embarrassed.
Hopefully he's learned a valuable lesson.
It was a busy week for us last week. Jake turned 8 on the 8th - how cool is that! Friday night he had a combined birthday party with his friend Dylan that lives across the street. Their birthdays are only two days apart, and since they are the same age and are in the same grade at school they have lots of the same friends. So we had one big party for both boys. And it was crazy!! We had 14 boys total and I think their parents stuffed them full of sugar before they dropped them off because they were wired. It took a great amount of effort to get them to sit long enough to eat some pizza and open presents.
Yes that's Jaxson trying to blow out the candles. He thinks every birthday is his.
Thankfully the rest of the evening was just what they needed to burn off all of that energy. We took them to Xtreme Play and let them run wild for a couple of hours. This place just opened up down the street and is sooo much fun. They have several very large inflatables for the kids to jump and slide on plus game stations and air hockey tables. It's just the place for a group of hyper active 8 year old boys. I highly recommend it!
Then on Saturday Jake was baptized. He had lots of family and friends their to show their love and support for him.
Afterwards we had a barbecue and another party complete with cupcakes and a yummy ice cream cake. I didn't get many pictures of this cause I was busy with the food but I did get one of Jake with the awesome pocket knife that his grandpa got him. This was the main thing he wanted for his birthday this year. Now he can't wait to go camping and do a little whittling with it.
Happy Birthday Jacob!
