A Busy 4 Days

Jaxson and I have been enjoying having Daddy home for the last four days.  Since this last weekend was my weekend off, Brad took Friday and today off so that we could all spend some time together.  We spent Friday running a lot of little errands and got a lot done.  Saturday was a bummer with the dreary weather, but we did manage to get out of the house to go to church that evening.  This was the first time that we got to see the new sanctuary, and it is gorgeous.  Jaxson even behaved quite well throughout the service and didn’t need to be escorted to the nursery.  I think it helped that Uncle Heath, Devon, and Kade were also there to help entertain him.  After church, Heath and the boys came over for a little BBQ since Tanya was up in Hubbard for a girl’s night out.  Sunday was a beautiful day so Brad worked out in the garage trying to organize it and get more stuff hung up on the walls to make more room for Jaxson’s toys.  Our goal this summer is to get a shed put up in the backyard so maybe sometime soon Brad can park his truck in the garage once again.  Sunday afternoon, G & G Cathcart came down to watch Jaxson so that Brad and I could go to the Daughtry and Bon Jovi concert.  We went to a pre-show at Hy-Vee Hall and had dinner and drinks and ran into some friends, Dave & Rhonda Bruxvoort, that we haven’t seen in a long time.  We had a very nice time chatting with them and sharing pictures of our kids, of course. Then we headed over to the concert at Wells Fargo Arena.  Daughtry put on a pretty good show.  We were very excited to see him because we LOVED watching him on American Idol (we think he still should have won).  Then Bon Jovi performed and it was awesome!  He puts on a great show.  He’s all over the stage and really keeps the crowd into it.  At one point in the show, he snuck onto the floor and stood up about 20 feet from me.  Today was also very busy and fun.  This morning we got up and went to Mommy and Me Music at our church.  But today it was Mommy, Daddy, Grandma, and Me Music.  Daddy and Grandma enjoyed watching him do his thing at music class.  And then it was off to the zoo.  It was so fun seeing Jaxson get so excited about all of the different animals.  Since it’s just starting to get nice out, a lot of the animals weren’t out yet or they were improving a lot of the exhibits, so we didn’t get to see a lot of things.  But it was still a great time and I think we will be spending a lot of time there this summer.

Jaxson loved the penguins.  He tried immitating the noise that they make; it was very cute.
