It's been an extremely rough couple weeks. So, I won't be doing this blog for a little while now. I've created another blog for the current chapter in my life and thats all the blogging I can do right now. Hopefully I will come back to this blog soon.

Here's the link, if you'd like to visit. Breathing with CF

Take care

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving!

Things have been a little ...ummm, crazy? ... difficult? .... Can't think of the right word. Things are good, but not great right now. Maybe after next week I will explain more.

However, I am very thankful for all I have.

We went bowling! Jackson and Wyatt's first time. We had pizza and then played arcade games afterwards. Lots of fun!

plane ride

Last week, Jackson took his first plane ride with Grandpa!

We had been talking about it a few days before that we would go out and see Grandpa's airplane. But I wasn't really sure what was going to happen. My guess is that Jackson would be just fine with taxiing around and not want to go flying. I was wrong.

He was a little scared in the beginning, so he sat on my lap while we taxied around.

On our way back, he said he wanted to go up flying in the air. I told him that I would have to get out and he would have to go by himself with Grandpa. Then once we got back to the hangar, this is when he told me to get out and that he wanted to go flying.

Getting his seat belt all on and ready.

They just did a loop around the airport and came back down.

He got back and said he wanted to do it again. Grandpa said he did great and had smiles most of the time.

bike video

I need to catch up on some pictures and happenings. We got Jacksona a new bike a few weeks ago (maybe a month ago now?). He does great! He can't start on his own yet, he did once though. He's just not tall enough to get it going... soon enough I'm sure. But once he gets going, he does great.

Here is a video of him riding a week ago.

fountain park

The other day we went to our local fountain park. This was one of the first times that Jackson really got into it. He's been before, but hasn't gotten this wet before.

Copying the other kids laying on top of the fountains.

family reunion

Jackson had so much fun at the family reunion this year. There were lots of cousin's to play with and lots of fun things to do.

Monday, September 26, 2011


Jackson learned to ride his cousin's scooters over Labor Day weekend. We went to Dan's annual family reunion. Had lots of fun. Some more pics to come.

A couple weeks ago now, we went cherry picking! It was lots of fun. We also picked blueberries too. We canned the cherries and froze the blueberries. The blueberries were the best ever too!

On a pedal bike!

Wyatt came over today with his pedal bike and Jackson wanted to try it. He has tried it a couple weeks ago and kept reverse pedaling, which was causing him to suddenly stop every couple feet.

And today, he did soo much better! I'm so proud!

I took these a few days ago, just took awhile to get them posted.

Here is my garden this year. I have carrots, lettuce, zuchini, cucumbers, marigolds and snow peas in there.

These are on the back side of the little fence, I'm not sure what kind of flowers these are exactly. I believe some sort of daisy. They keep spreading a little every year, this is the best they've looked so far. I don't think the picture does them justice (maybe I should have messed with the color/vibrance in photoshop to help, oh well).

And here are more snow peas that I put next to the chicken coop to give them some shade. This is the first year I've ever grown snow peas. It's been great having them, I'll definitely do them again next year.

bike ramp

Dan built Jackson a little ramp for his bike. The neighbor boys come over and jump off it too. It's been fun.

pony's at the fair

Free pony rides are the best! Jackson did great on the pony ride, however we went back later and he didn't want to do it again. Once was enough.

the Fair!

We went to the fair! I showed Jackson pictures of us at the fair last year and it made him get excited. So then when we got in the parking lot, he started yelling "we're at the fair!" and he said he was excited. It was cute.

We met up with some friends and did some rides on Pepsi day. They chose the airplanes first.

Jackson made it about 3 times around and then started to cry. So the guy stopped the ride and let Jackson off early. He said he got scared.

the pool

We went to the pool the other day with some friends. Had lots of fun.

Here is a wide view of the pool's outdoor kids area. We love it, but it's about a 30 min drive away.

There is a small slide just for around Jackson's age. He can do it all by himself. The landing is in super shallow water. He wants to do the big slide by himself, but he's not tall enough yet (probably 2 more years).
