Let’s give ‘em something to blog about

Today has been a very blog worthy day.  It all began in the morning with Jaxon’s 1st ever soccer practice and game.  He was cute and excited and loved it!  He came up to me before the game and said, “mom, you forgot to tell me something” to which I replied, “what did I forget Jaxon?”, “you forgot to say good luck!”  He’s such a good kid, and I love him to pieces.  IMG_0103

Jake even ended up with the assistant coach position for the day, which he loved.IMG_0107 IMG_0109

It was fun to see my boys out there on the field together.

Next we headed out to Corvallis for Mya and Mckenzie’s birthday party.  We were already late, so having out tire blow out was a double bummer.  Luckily my husband is well educated in the changing tire business having spent our early years of marriage working at Les Schwab.  So with his expertise and an friendly ODOT incident control guy we were on the road again in no time.  Funny how those things that could go so wrong (just imagine my huge pregnant self alone with 2 kids when it happened) end up working out so well.  I got bored during the ordeal, so I took pictures.  Notice Jaxon checking out the action.IMG_0114

The rest of the trip went smoothly, and we made it just in time for the party to have ended.  Which would have been okay, except for I had the cake!   Grandma and Grandpa saved the day with a quick trip to the grocery store.  And that left a whole cake for our little group to enjoy!  Once again, things just worked out okay.IMG_0133 IMG_0115 IMG_0134

It was a mermaid party.  Cute cake huh?  I had lots of fun making it.

Here’s my gorgeous girl.  IMG_0132 IMG_0122

We loved spending the sunny afternoon with family.   

The ride home was wonderfully uneventful day, and thus ends our exciting, blog worthy day.  Now I’m going to try and find a comfortable position in bed and go to sleep. 

Oh, and here’s me and Jess showing off our bellies.  It’s impossible not to laugh when taking a picture like this, hence my scary squinty eyes.  Yes, I’m huge!IMG_0136

And on a last sweet little note, as we were saying our family prayer tonight Jaxon interrupted with a “don’t forget….” which happens often, and usually it’s something to do with sea creatures or what not, but tonight he wanted to make sure we said we were thankful for the man who helped us with the flat tire.  He just get’s it.  And he is an example to me that I need to express my gratitude to my Heavenly Father more for days like today.  Days that His tender mercies are abundant.  Good thing for my 5 year old to teach me these life lessons.

Awesome cake! Your kids are gorgeous and you really ARE pregnant. Bummer about the tire. Glad you guys were okay and that Jake was with you.

You look great pregnant. I can't wait to put Michael in soccer next year. I'm glad you had such a great day, I love days like that where you get to be with family all day.
