More Pictures!

While we spent our weekend working in the yard, Jackson enjoyed playing in his pool, snacking in the shade, and having a great time. Notice the dirty feet and skinned knees, the signs of a true boy!

Mason just hung out in his bouncer on the porch all weekend, and he loved it! Often when the breeze would hit him he would let out a little giggle!

The Yard

Until this weekend, our yard looked similar to the yards of many foreclosures; overgrown, weedy, and just plain ugly. Well... we worked our butts off all weekend and now it is MUCH better. We still have a lot more that we want to do, but this is a great start. Now we just have to figure out how to work our sprinkler system to take care of it! I wish I would have taken before and after pics, but I didn't, so here is the after:

Last weekend Mason and I headed back to MN for my sister's wedding shower. Not only was it Mason's second trip to MN, but his 5th and 6th flights! He is a flying pro. Here are a few pics from our trip:

Before heading to MN I got some great shots of Jack and Mason:

Crystal Lake

I haven't posted for a while because we were gone visiting Matt's family in Crystal Lake, IL. I flew with Mason, and Matt and Jack road tripped it the whole 15 hours from Denver to CL.

Jackson had a great time at the park with Grandma Diane, Grandpa Glenn and Matt's cousin Nicole.

Matt's cousin's Andrea, Nicole, and Keri had a great time getting to know Mason.

They also enjoyed spending time with Jackson, here is the same picture we took 19 months ago, reinacted!

Jack got more piggy-back rides from Grandma Diane

Jack got his first Harley but his cousin Ana got more riding time in than Jackson on this trip.

While Ana enjoyed the Harley Jack enjoyed her princess slide and sandbox!

We went to Ana's dance recital dress rehearsal, it made Matt happy that we have 2 boys and no girls!
Jackson discovered that couches are very bouncy, especially grandma and grandpa's couch!
Mason spent a lot of time being oooed and ahed over.
Mason has proud grandparents on both sides!
Mason is smiling a lot more now, he's just hard to catch on camera with a smile!
Along with hanging out with family we also got together with lots of old friends of Matt's. He also went to a Cub's game with his cousin Andrea. Of course we made a trip to Ikea (how could I be that close and not go?!?) Our trip also involved eating many of Chicago and Crystal Lake's classic foods. I was introduced to "Johnny's Beef" and their italian ices, "Portillos" and their chocolate cake,"The Freeze" and their "Blitz's", and The "Village Squire" and their "flaming cheese". I think that Matt misses Chicago food almost as much as he misses his family! Although it was a great trip, we are happy to be back home, enjoying the comforts of Jack's crib and our King size bed!
