It's been awhile....and, I have this weird underlining thing happening but can't figure out how to stop it. Sorry!!! Anyway, we've been busy the past few weeks. Here are some pics.
First, the Music City Marathon was a few weeks ago. Jared trained SO hard for it. Then, the week of he came down with strep throat and his asthma started acting up. He rested a lot, but unfortunately he was not able to run in it. We were quite bummed. My cousin's husband was going to run in with Jared though so they still came and we had a great time.
on our way to the race
I just love these two girls so much
After going home for a quick shower, we met my parents for some yummy Mexican food and then headed over to Main Street Festival in Franklin.
J was in Heaven
We also walked around and looked at all the fun crafty things. Meredith (the older one of the two girls) thought it was just the coolest thing. She told my mom, "Do they do this the same time every year? We don't have anything like this at my home. Maybe we can come back next year." So sweet.
Jacob had the best of time with his cousins too. They all piled on the air mattress at night and had a slumber party. Also, the girls are OBSESSED with Justin Beiber. They got Jacob singing, "Baby, Baby, Baby Ohhhh. Baby Baby Baby Nooo." Every time he did it, they would laugh and this would make him laugh even harder. It was hysterical.
Jacob has had ear infection after ear infection lately too. Good thing his daddy has his own practice so we can go get them looked at whenever we want. J is becoming quite the good little patient.
Mater is always in one and Lightening McQueen in the other
Last week we went to Centennial Park again with our dear friends Jenny and Addy. Jenny is 35 weeks pregnant. We can't wait to meet the newest Shoe in a few weeks. Anyway, we went to feed the ducks....and, boy did we feed the ducks. As soon as we pulled the bread out they started coming from all directions. Jenny and I were laughing and screaming at the same time. If someone had a video camera they would have definitely caught some momma craziness. We were so worried our little ducks were going to get bit by THE ducks. Oh goodness gracious the predicaments we two girls always seem to find ourselves in. Despite our initial freak-out, the ducks were in a gentle mood. J and Addy were able to get very close.
how cute are they!?!
And, my little man just keeps getting bigger and bigger. He is making me more proud everyday of the kind, sweet, loving, gentle, sharing, considerate, hilarious, easy going young man he is becoming. He's like a welcome virus that has infected every part of my being..
Last week we went to Gran and Pappy's for lunch and to hang out. I just love them so. We had a wonderful time talking and playing outside. Gran also let us pick a few trees to bring home and plant in our backyard. We got a Maple, Dogwood, and Red Bud. I'm hoping they will survive cause we could use some shade.
And, last of all it is warming up here in Nashville. We've had to pull out the water table a few times already...
