hitting the town

This week is going good for our family ♥ Work and school are good...I really need to sit down and update about Easton's speech and school soon-we are so happy with how everything is going! The cool weather in the morning and evenings has been is good all around right now :) 

So, Drake and I decided this week that we would each have an afternoon to go do whatever we wanted while the other one had Easton. Yesterday was Drake's day and he went to play golf with my dad. So while he was doing that, Easton and I went into town with no plan in mind and ended up having a great time! 
 We went to a shopping area where I planned to just run into hobby lobby to grab a fall door decoration, but when I pulled in I realized they had the yearly Halloween store set up on the other side of the shopping center, so I parked in the middle and we walked over to the Halloween store which Easton loved! That turned into walking down to the pet store, which turned into walking to O'Charleys for a dinner date :) 
I had so much fun just hanging out with Easton for the afternoon ♥ Then, today was my day while the boys hung out. Of course I went to the mall for shopping and got a mani/pedi. :) 

I think we might start doing this switch off like once a month. haha Obviously all of our evenings as a family are awesome, but this little plan was great! There is something so special about that one on one time with Easton...and then obviously a day of "me" time is so refreshing. 

Happy Hump Day! ♥

Fall Fun!

Well, fall "officially" starts in a couple days, but it has actually felt kind of nice outside the last couple days (for Florida), so I wasted no time getting out some fall decorations and lighting pumpkin candles! Hopefully it's here to stay as we go into fall and not just playing a sick joke on us :) Last night we went to gallery night and had a great time. We took Easton to the kid area and he had the bounce house all to himself. We walked around and ran into my parents and did a photo booth with them ♥ 
This morning we were up and at the soccer fields. 
 Easton is so cute out there :)
 flirting ♥ 

 After that we went to maritime for a kid's day event. Easton had fun checking everything out. 

 Of course his favorite part was rolling down the hill. :)
 He loved the obstacle course! 
 It's been a good weekend so far! We will be heading to my brother's house soon for food and football. Happy Saturday!!

Party Weekend!

This weekend was birthday party weekend! Babcia and Grandad came in town from Virginia to hang out with us too! So, Friday we took off of work and hung out for the day. Went downtown, grabbed some lunch and hung out at the house that evening. 
Yesterday morning the bounce house was already set up so Easton was jumping in his pjs :) 
It was a long morning of setting up decorations outside...and stressing over the radar. I snagged some pictures while we were setting up, here is one table minus the cold juice and fruits. 
 We set up all morning...minus taking a break with Drake's mom to go grab lunch and shop at a boutique of course ♥ 
 After a break, it was back to work!
 We had the backyard all set up and ready to go for Easton's county fair!

 until...about 30 minutes before our start time we are running outside to bring in what we can before it starts pouring! :( It was sunny all weekend except the couple hours of Easton's party. Seriously?!
 I was so bummed as we were bringing everything in. All of the work that morning, the last couple months planning and buying things to not turn out the way you plan is definitely tough. But I had to remind myself that it is all for Easton's party, so him having fun is what matters. 
 We were still moving things around inside as everyone was arriving, but we made it work. 

Crammed in our house eating fair food with family and friends ♥ Thankful for everyone who came to celebrate Easton. 

 He was into his presents which is fun to watch. He would open his mouth wide and say, "Wow"
 Then as the party was close to ending, the rain stopped! We went out and the kids played in a wet bounce house and played in the puddles. 
 of course Drake was jumping wearing the gopro :)
 It was a hectic day, but turned out perfect...even if it wasn't the "perfect" I had planned in my head. :)
I'm glad Easton had a great time partying with his friends. ♥

Happy Birthday!


Happy 3rd Birthday! It is so bittersweet to watch you grow up. Writing to you each year for your birthday puts a lump in my throat every time. Thinking back through the year and wondering how time can feel so fast. We say it all the time, but I just don't want to accept it.

Being a 2 year old was a big year for you! You have come a long way in the last 12 months...we got rid of your high chair, crib and glider. Your baby days are gone. You started school and sports, started wearing big boy underwear, traveled on an airplane again and have your first crush.

It was a stressful year for us, you had your seizure and started speech therapy. But I am so proud of how far you have come and cannot tell you enough how proud I am of you for the effort you put into it. I know that one day we will tell you about these days and you won't even remember them or remember any of the troubles you had.

Nothing could have ever prepared me for the love that has filled my heart since you have been in our lives. I love you so much and will always do anything in the world for you.

You are such an energetic little boy! You love your sports, swimming, running and you are currently jumping on the bed behind me as I type this ♥ You wear size 4 clothes and 9 shoes. You weigh almost 40 pounds and are almost 40'' tall. You love popsicles, cars, playing the wii, bugs and riding your tricycle.

I pray that I do a good job guiding you through this crazy wonderful life. Happy Birthday sweet boy. ♥

Love, mom
