So much happened the last couple of days. There are A LOT of blog posts from our birthday. So, just keep reading, just keep reading, reading, reading, reading!!
This pretty much speaks for itself. We can't wait until next year.
Here comes cake!!
Soft, squishy, and oh so sweet.
Ahhhhhh, can't eat it fast enough!
Forget the hands to the mouth, let's just dive in.
We had a costume party for our birthday and invited our friends. Charley went as a lion and Jax as a cow. You can see the whip that was part of mommy's lion tamer costume. Daddy went as a farmer and looked a touch Amish.
Because lots of people came to see us, Mommy and Daddy let us into the kitchen. We had all kinds of fun in there.
Our friends Shivani and Shashank came with their parents Heera and Naveen.
Our friend Hillery came too with her kids Jenna and Hayden . . .
Here's Daddy with Hayden, dressed as a little chick, how funny is that!!
We had so many presents to open we had to work on it all day, but that was ok with us.
Check out these cool riding things. We can push them, ride on them and they make all kinds of great noises to annoy mommy and daddy. THANKS Aunt Jenny!!!
In the end, though, we just wanted the same one. But it didn't matter which one, we both had to have the same one.
I'm getting better at it all the time. Walking across rooms, around corners, I'm just about ready to give up crawling, maybe.
I'm learning. I just get so excited I can hardly contain myself. Maybe I'll just go straight to running, forget walking.
We took advantage of the break in the rain on Saturday and went to the apple orchard with our friends. We weren't able to pick apples, which seemed strange to even mommy and daddy, so we hung out on this bench instead.
We had a little snack picnic . . .
. . . worked on our walking . . .
. . . and tried in vain to escape.
We went to our neighborhood hangout to watch MIZZOU play Oklahoma. We got all dressed up for the occasion, hoping the tiger costumes would spur on our tigers.
Even though we started OK and had a very strong third quarter, it wasn't enough to hold off the Sooners. Booooo, Oklahoma.
We spent some time this afternoon with our friends. Here is a rare moment when all four of us were close enough to get a photo.
Shivani showed Jax the proper, and improper, way to sit on a little chair. We'll have to get some small chairs of our own.
WOW, the beach! Check me out!!
The sea breeze on my face . . .
. . . walking along the shore with grandma and grandpa . . .
. . . crawling through the sand . . .
. . . I'm not too sure about this water . . .
. . . so that's enough, I'll come back later.
We rode the carousel. We had a great time before it started moving.
Correction, Charley was never really sure about it, even before it moved.
Jackson LOVED sitting on the horse, as long as it wasn't moving.
Grandma Cathy and Grandpa Stro took us. We'd probably go again if they wanted to take us.
