Mini March for CF!

On Friday, May 28th, Jackson participated in a Mini March for Cystic Fibrosis (CF) with his friends from daycare. He doubled his goal and raised $200 for the CF Foundation! We are so lucky to have a healthy child as well as caring, generous, and amazing family and friends! Thank you to everyone who donated on Jackson's behalf...his little legs were marching a happy dance!

Running inside to submit the donations!

Let the Mini March begin!

Parker and Jack march to the beat!

My turn to make the music!

Mother's Day Weekend!

I hope all of the mothers were able to celebrate their special day--we work hard and I know we are appreciated each day, but Mother's Day has to be a new favorite holiday of mine...and it's so close to my birthday! I had a fabulous Mother's Day weekend! Roni and Terry invited us to their timeshare in Palm Springs and the weather was amazing! I love dry, hot, weather...especially when I have a pool close! I should have figured everyone would be at the pool by 11 a.m. -- we had an interesting time finding chairs, but alas we were able to enjoy the sun! Jackson napped in the room and Grandpa Terry watched him snooze. We had a nice lunch and then the paparazzi followed me to the grocery store where we picked up some dinner to prepare back at the room. Jackson surprised us by remembering how to do his swimming moves he has learned from swim (he hasn't been since his first bday because of colds, viruses, we lost our time slot)...he just dove right in and LOVED the water! We had a lovely breakfast on Mom's Day and then drove home...found out we were locked out! Sierra managed to break in...and spent the evening with G-Mommy at Auntie Autumn's house for a delicious dinner! She took those I'll post later! Tonight we were able to see Libby and Grandpa for a birthday/Mother's Day dinner. Jackson enjoyed his meal (and we did, too)...he was anxious to go outside to run! It was difficult to get a good picture without him squirming.

:: Birthdays ::

We celebrated Sierra's 33rd birthday with some friends for dinner. Sierra played Torrey Pines that day with Kevin, Tom, and Sarkin. Kevin is Sierra's boss so that was nice of him to suggest a short workday and round of golf! We had golf balls printed with Sierra and Jack's picture and gave these out as favors with some golf tees ("Sierra is 33! Yowza!"). Too bad my Iphone was a dud and I lost the pictures of the fun goodie bags! :/

On my 31st birthday, Sierra and I had a much needed date night--dinner and a movie. We saw "Date Night" and it was hilarious! If you are married, you need to see this! The Central Park scene was a little too long, and I almost left the theater, but the movie redeemed itself a few minutes later...especially when Marky Mark opens the door minus a shirt.

Auntie Autumn watched Jack and Grammommy/G-Mommy came over for a bit, too. Of course our little guy was absolutely perfect while Mama and Dada were out having some alone time...and missing him every second! Sierra gave me a beautiful "J" necklace...although I opened the gift receipt on my birthday, saying that it was in the mail...typical. At least he got my Starbucks right!
