It was so much more fun than I thought....and it felt great to get outside with my boys.
Jaxson got a little OVER-EXCITED and kept running around in circles and straight into the road. I tried to teach him about running directly in to the street and about holding my hand, etc. He looked up at me (as if he totally COULD NOT HELP HIMSELF from doing it and flashed the look of complete annoyance with me...the overbearing parent) and said,
"I so sorry mom. I be a good boy -k-!"
I laughed. I couldn't argue with that:)
I also learned something today!
That is: I have ZERO ability to fly a darn kite.
A kite designed for an 8 year old to make matters worse. It was sad. Jarom put so much effort into getting it up and going for me...I would grab the handle and 2 minutes later...down she'd come. I plan to get better....and I'm pretty sure Jaxson will make sure I get LOTS of practice in the SPRING weeks to come:)
(look at my look of total concentration:) he he.
oh yah...earlier in the week we enjoyed the bubble BBQ. Tell me you've seen this toy???
I must admit...it looks completely stupid...but those always turn out to be the funnest ones!!!
ALWAYS, hands down.
It can get Jaxson gut-laughing so hard...I just love it. It makes millions of bubbles...and the best part is that I can sit back, relax and watch...instead of be the one blowing them for hours! He and Owen had the best time playing with it Friday. One of his b-day gifts that made it to the favorite 5 for sure:)
Great idea for Easter gifts people...your kids would love it.
We tested out the scooter...he's a pretty coordinated little stinker...I have to give it to him. He get's that from his dad. He's always been pretty athletic...and quick to pick up on things. The other day we were kicking around a soccer ball...and I taught him how to drop kick it. He does it all the time now...and rarely misses. I was like "WHAT???"
I hear that he gets his "facial expressions" from me.
Jarom says I have been known to make this one when really excited.
Jaxson was excited this day. Oh dear.
The tail-end of blowing me a kiss:)
He has learned to press my buttons you could say...because all he has to do is say "peese mama"...blow me a kiss...or say "sowwy mama" and he get's whatever it is that he's begging for at the moment. Since he started calling me "mama" instead of mom....I am a sucker for him. It's just too darn cute. I love to hear it more than anything.
...cruisin up and down the street....
He got a peddle bike for his B-day...but he still prefers things with "MOTORS".
Therefore, he is still sporting the four-wheeler.
My dad says I'm in trouble one day. We'll see. He's probably right.
That sums up our week.
Jarom just woke up from his Sunday Nap...(the lazy butt)...and so we're headed to the park for more sunshine. I sure hope the weather cooperates next week...I am most definitely ready for
*** SPRING ***
Have a wonderful week
