A Fabulous Weekend

We had such a great weekend.  We had beautiful weather and good times with family and friends.  Saturday evening, Heath, Tanya, and Kade rode with us to New Sharon for my cousin Jacque’s wedding reception.  We had a great time.  We got to eat a lot of great food, dance, and see a lot of my mom’s side of the family.  Jaxson had a blast playing outside pretty much the whole time with Kade and also with a gaggle of girls that were there.  On Sunday, Miah spent most of the day at our house entertaining Jaxson.  They played on the slip-and-slide until they were both too tired to play anymore.  After naps, we headed to our church where they were having their annual Taste of Hope.  It’s a big summer celebration with free food (burgers, hot dogs, corn dogs, popcorn, funnel cakes, and cotton candy), a ton of bounce houses and other games.  They also had a talent show and many other things going on.  Jaxson had a great time going from one bounce house to the next.  The Barrons also met us out there and had a great time.  Once it got dark we enjoyed the fireworks, which much to my surprise, were some of the best fireworks that I have every seen.  After the fireworks we headed home and got Jaxson and Brad to bed and I headed off to work for the night.  Brad took this whole week off from work, so we have plans to have fun and stay busy with work around the house.  Today he already got the greenbelt behind our house all cleaned up and looking SOOOO much better.  It seems that the city just decided to quit taking care of the area when it got out of control with those two gigantic trees that they cut down a year ago.  We also have plans to go to the Omaha Zoo and finish Jaxson’s bathroom.  I’m sure the week will go by way too fast.
