We went to the Red River Ex this morning to check it out since we totally missed it last year. We went right when the gates opened this morning (to get home in time for an afternoon nap) so lots of things weren’t open right at the start. We checked out the military display and Isaac was all over the plane, he had several turns and would have sat in there half the day if I’d let him.

Next we headed to the army youth challenge were he politely refused to have his face painted and the nice private walked him through the obstacle course while I fed Sadie. Here is a shot of them coming out of the maze.

Then we checked out the petting zoo; Isaac stayed in the stroller and was interested but not so much, no photos from there.

Then we hit the junior rescue challenge (read slide and a play house and slide OMG slide!!) we played there for close to half an hour, no photos from here either; Sadie and I were hanging out. Incidentally we met another little Sadie here, she was about six months older than Isaac.

We finished off at the ‘day on the farm’ exhibit where kids get to do farm chores and collect items to sell at the market. Then they sell their wares and earn a dollar to go buy something from the general store. It was very cute and Isaac enjoyed most of the chores. Most of all he enjoyed the tractors though.

Oh and there were more slides. Then we got home and had a nap and after we woke up walked to the park for (of course) the slides.

My Mother’s Day Gift

June 18, 2010

I saw this style of necklace in a giveaway on To The Max, it’s from The Vintage Pearl. I didn’t think much about it at first (this was while I was still pregnant with Sadie) but I decided I needed one and in true Jackie-Jason fashion ordered it that very second.  Thankfully Mother’s day was just around the corner so I justified it 🙂

So much to say

June 17, 2010

so little time.

We had a great three week road trip to visit family and friends…I’ll elaborate soon with pics.

Now we’re preparing for Isaac’s b-day party today. Expect pics on that soon too.
