aaaahhhhh. Nothing like relaxing and watching the "game".
I'll start out by saying: He's getting TOO BIG....TOO FAST!!!
He enjoyed sleeping in King Beds (smack dab in the middle of his mom and dad might I add) for a solid week!
He acts just like his father...and says things to me that...to be honest... I don't really appreciate sometimes:) He has also learned to smack me on the tush as I pass occassionally. We are working on this one. He picks up on everything...and I learned on Wednesday afternoon that he can quote entire sections of "Horton Hears a Who". That movie has been in the car DVD player for almost 2 months...and the poor kid...I never remember to change it!!!
When he started quoting it and saying "BLESS YOU" afer I sneeze (I surely haven't gone as far as teaching manners yet...so I knew it wasn't me he learned that from:) I finally put "CARS" in...and plan on buying something of some educational value soon:)
I've introduced you to his "fake smile" before....and here it is...in all it's glory!
This was after we told him we were going "swimming".
Excited: I think so.
It didn't take him long to warm up to the idea (of swimming that is)...and he became a little brave for my liking. Jumping in from the side...almost drowning a few times...etc. I was exhausted and even more scared to raise a" ACTIVE-FEARLESS- MALE" child to adulthood.
Nothing scares him....and although those floaties look like a safety precaution... I ASSURE YOU...they do absolutely nothing. He would sink straight to the bottom if I wasn't there protecting him from HIMSELF:)
The Weather was DIVINE. We spent a lot of time at the Park...and Jaxson was able to get out a lot of energy. It was nice.
St. George is always swarming with Helicopters from the local little aiport...and Jaxson LOVED every minute of it. He spent the entire Vacation pointing them out and shouting demands into the sky such as: "COME HERE HELICOPTER!!!"
....watching the 'copters from the slide....
We stayed in a beautiful condo...which gave us the luxury of having a few bedrooms...and family room, fireplace, full-kitchen. It was great to feel "at-home" only in a much Warmer, Fun, No-Work, kind of way:)
We were also able to have BBQ's, Pizza Party's and Watch Movies which was a lot fun.
....Pizza party night.....
...and Swimming again!!!
Only thist time outside the resort...and relaxing in the HOT TUB per Jaxson's request.
I think he heard Jarom say it once...and now it's his new favorite thing! When we got home he immediately told his nanny about the "HOT TUB".
He spent lots of quality time with his Daddy!
It was nice. Very nice.
...Another Day at the PARK....
This park was awesome...and much nicer than anything little B.C. has to offer. Bummer...I could see us spending A LOT of time there:) This particular piece of park equipment helped with the "skateboard skills". Jaxson calls it a "surfboard".
Having never seen this thing before...I had to give it a whirl.
....Harder than it looks....
Jarom spoiled his little guy...and bought him several "baseball-esqe" items.
It was fun to see him get so excited about it. I liked it...because I PLAN to bring it up someday when I have a daughter and I'm purchasing completely unnecessary items....
JUST FOR THE FUN OF IT:)
Jax got a new Jersey, a baseball hat, a Chicago CUBS (my husbands obsession) bat and ball set, and a trip to the park to play Ball with his Dad.
I'm pretty sure it was as close to perfection as it could have been in his little 2 year old brain:) He even got an ice-cream cone to top off the perfect day.
I just love love the following 2 pictures...although I think they make him look so much older than he is. It's hard to watch them grow up...BUT so much fun to experience every stage.
We shared a pint of Ben & Jerry's...of course.
....in my book....
...and we visited the St. George Temple where my parents were married. They were married on Feb. 17th....26 years ago on Tuesday....:)
I took this picture of it for my mom.
It is such a beautiful temple!
....and Jarom talked to Jax about the Temple...whose house it is....and how special it is...
I sing him "I love to see the temple" almost every day before nap.
I think he knew...exactly what it was.
It was a great day
...and a wonderful end to a perfect little getaway...
