A Trip to the Zoo...and Cookie Face!

Today we took Jaxon to the zoo for a little goat petting and giraffe watching.We went early and were out of there by about 11am when it started getting really hot. Some highlights included a goat fight and Jaxon riding the carousel for the first time. He really loved the fact, he threw himself to the ground in a screaming temper tantrum when I removed him from his giraffe at the end of the ride. Here are some pictures of the day: It was a fun day! I also wanted to share a couple of pictures of Jaxon's first chocolate chip cookie experience. It was quite a mess.

Jaxon today

Today, Jaxon and I had a typical summer day. We just spent the whole day playing and hanging out at home. I took some pictures and a video! He has been throwing some pretty serious temper tantrums lately. I took a video of one today and you're all lucky enough to enjoy it with me, haha!

Memorial Day Weekend

I am a little behind on my posting, but I want to catch up tonight by doing two posts. This first one is about Memorial Day weekend and the end of the school year. My parents wanted to keep Jaxon overnight at my Granny and Grandaddy's house on Saturday night, so we met them on their way there and dropped him off. They had a fun night with him (although he was in the midst of cutting 4 molars and pretty grumpy), and Kevin and I had a fun date night. On Sunday we woke up early and drove to Bryan to visit my family and pick up Jaxon. We spent the day hanging out and riding 4-wheelers in the "river bottom," which was a blast! Here are some pictures from the day: As you can see, Jaxon received no shortage of attention from his family. The next week, I had to work Tuesday - Thursday with the kiddos and then an in-service day on Friday to wrap up the year. Cake, right? Well it would have been, except for I came down with a raging case of strep throat on Tuesday night. I had to stay home on Wednesday and I went back to school on Thursday, though I wasn't quite ready and was still in a lot of pain. But who can miss the last day of school??? Anyway, I made it through the day and we had a raging teacher party after school. Friday we wrapped up the year, and summer began!!!
