Mother's Day and Baseball Time!

Happy Mother's Day everyone! I know we are a week behind, but I still had to blog about my 3rd Mother's Day. It couldn't have been better! I got to sleep in and when I woke up, Jackson had already been fed and my coffee was waiting. My husband so sweetly bought me 48 tulips for the occasion. He placed them in the outdoor refrigerator the night before and unfortunately, they froze. We had 2 survivors and they were beautiful!! We then went to church, out to lunch, and bought my flowers for the outside. It was perfect! This first picture is Jackson and I with the present he made me at school. It was a bookmarker. I just love getting his little projects from school!! On a different note, our garden is flourishing! We planted 6 tomato plants this year and they all have multiple tomatoes! Our strawberry plants also survived the winter and are flourishing. Last year we did not get a single strawberry, and this year Jackson has enjoyed over 2 dozen! They are quite small but so sweet! Everyday after his nap, we go down and pick and eat the strawberries. It reminds me so much of working in the garden with my mother. He loves it!

Helping Daddy plant mommy's new flowers.

Let me dig the hole.

This is what you get when you ask a 2 year old to put his shoes and socks on. Jackson decided he wanted to wear Daddy's socks and wouldn't take them off all day!

First Brave's game! We took Jackson to his first baseball game this week. It started off rocky, but as soon as the food came, he was perfect! Here he is with daddy watching them warm up. By far his favorite part of the game was a little race that had with different home depot tool mascots. Jackson kept asking where the hammer went!

You gotta love that smile!

Family shot at the field! We had great seats 5 rows behind home plate!!

Jackson charming the people sitting behind us. By the end of the game, Jackson consumed 2 slices of pizza worth of pepperoni, a box of popcorn and an entire bag on cotton candy. Greg and I thought for sure he was going to throw up during the car ride home, but he kept it all down!!

Despite the game not starting until 7:10, we made it to the bottom of the 6th! Not too bad for our first trip to the ballpark!!
