What a Weekend!

This weekend was alot of fun! Friday was my shopping spree. Adam and both needed new clothes, so Mom and Grandma and Jackson and I hit the mall! We grabbed lunch at Gringos where Jackson ate his ice cream cone BEFORE lunch even started, but it kept him quiet! Adam met us at Grandma Netty's that night, while Stacey and I headed to Target. I hadn't wandered around Target in a long time (one of my most favorite things to do!), so we grabbed Starbucks and just aimlessly strolled the aisles and relaxed while Adam and Jackson and GmaNetty and GpaScott hung out at home!

On Saturday, we got up and went to work with Daddy! I cleaned the office while Daddy got some stuff done. Then it was home to take a quick nap (for Mommy) and then get all of our stuff together for an engagement session. This one was special to me: Adam's best friend Wade is getting married! I can't believe it! And I was asked to shoot their wedding/engagements/bridals, so we headed up to Rice to get some engagements done of him and Lauren, and Jackson and Adam tagged along! Lauren and Wade are so good with Jack. Wade was the first of all of our friends to hold that little guy at the hospital...Wade also helped Adam get everything together the day of our engagement (he actually set up the blanket and the roses and the he holds a special place in my heart. We had so much fun getting their engagements done! Jackson and Adam played--Adam taught Jackson how to tackle! It's hilarious! And Jackson helped us get some great smiles--he couldn't stop waving and saying "hi" to Lauren! Such a flirt! After the pictures, we were going to head to dinner, but Jackson was a little restless and I couldn't see us sitting in a resturant with him. And, Adam's friend Jeff called and wanted us to stop by, so we headed to Deer Park to see Jeff, Alicia, and Brian. We ate fajitas, played with Deputy, their dog, and then called it a night!

On Sunday, we had big plans for getting some things off the honey-do list. We cleaned the house and got some laundry done. Adam cooked breakfast, then we just sat their looking at each other. It was too hot to work in the yard yet, so we decided to go to Palm Beach! Daddy hadn't been there yet and it closes on the 9th, so we HAD to take him! Jackson slept the entire ride down there, so he was wound for sound when we pulled in the parking lot!

I have a season pass, but we were going to have to buy Adam a ticket which are $11.95 for the day. We were walking up to the ticket building when this lady stopped us (I think she spotted us from a mile away with our swimsuits, beach bags, and the stroller!) and said she had a ticket to Palm Beach that they weren't going to be using and did we want to buy it for $5. SURE! How lucky was that!

Once we got in there, Jackson new exactly where to go and what to show Daddy! We hit the splash park first. He loves the splash park! And Adam thought it was pretty cool too! After playing with "the big kids" (Jackson follows the older boys around as is he's one of them! Whatever they do, he does. Adam and I just stood back and watched him do his was pretty cute! He really is very independent!) then we walked over and found a cabana right next to the water to play. We had bought Jackson some sand toys, so he got to make sand pies and fling the sand everywhere. He even tried to eat it this time! We worked up an appetite while we were there, so Adam grabbed us a funnel cake to split--so yummy! Then back to the splash park to "rinse" off and play some more. This time, Jackson found a girlfriend, Daniella. She was super cute and they played and flirted for a bit before we were exhausted and wanted to get home!

We were still tired when we pulled in the driveway, but we had tall grass, so I mowed and Adam edged and weed-eated and blew, while Jackson and I played in the driveway with his Cozy Coupe and gas pump. By this time, we ALL needed to go to bed! What a weekend!
