Father's Day 2012

 What can I say about daddy? It is difficult for me to find the words to describe how much I love this man and how blessed I am to be able to spend my life with him. He is a dedicated physician always going the extra mile for his patients. He is a loving husband and the most amazing daddy. The smiles on Jackson and Beckett's face say it all! Even after a long day at work, he comes home with smiles and hugs and heads outside to play with his boys. The joy on Jackson's face when his daddy comes home is truly priceless! All I can say is that I am so thankful that he chose me to to spend his life with! For Father's day this year, we started out with breakfast with granddaddy and then we head to the pool! We swam all afternoon and then headed home for Daddy's special dinner. Fried chicken, green beans from our garden, macaroni and cheese and chocolate delight for dessert. This year daddy got a new set of golf clubs!! They are custom made for him, so we will see how his game improves!! We love you so much daddy!!
This is Daddy's new ride!! I have to admit, the convertible is a little bit more for mommy :)
 We would have had 4 Nesmith boys in this picture, but Beckett was taking a little snooze. Happy Father's Day Granddaddy!! Now you should never get lost!!
Now, I have to blog about how proud I am of my sweet Jackson. He never ceases to amaze me! We had our first trip to the dentist!! Jackson was so brave and could not have been a more perfect patient! We went to a pediatric dentist and had the most wonderful experience. They put Jackson right at ease!! Before heading back for his cleaning, Jackson met a little buddy and they loved playing with all the games!
 I just love how Jackson can meet friends in any situation!
 Before we went back for the cleaning, they told us that he needed a teeth cleaning, flossing, fluoride treatment, and x-rays. They said the would determine how much they could get done based on how he was doing. I am so proud to say that Jackson was such an excellent patient, they were able to complete the entire exam! Before the dental hygienist began the cleaning, she showed Jackson exactly what she was going to do on a kangaroo. Jackson watched very closely!
 Here is my little man getting ready for his cleaning!
 I was so impressed how well he listened. He opened his mouth when asked and didn't swallow any of the polish!!
Post cleaning picture with the big toothbrush!
 Now it was time for some x-rays. He was such a trooper!!
 All clean!!

No cavities!!!

Memorial Day Fun!

 What a weekend filled with swimming and more swimming and more swimming, friends, and barbecues! I must again give my husband a big thanks.....I wasn't so sure about joining the country club last year but now I am thrilled! We have so enjoyed many kid friendly events and have spent quite a bit of time at the pool already! Every holiday the club has some sort of event and for Memorial Day they had a swimming party filled with splash contests, ice cream, balloons, and face painting. We had the best time and I am sure will spend many more Memorial days there! To start out our Memorial day weekend, I introduced Jackson to water balloons. He didn't understand at first that the fun was in the balloons breaking, but soon caught on!
 Catch it daddy!!
 After the water balloons, we headed to the country club for our first swim of the season! Jackson continues to have zero fear of the water and jumped off the diving board again without skipping a beat! He swims very well with his floaties and I don't think it will be long until those are a thing of the past!!
Here is Jackson's first dive of the season. He dove into the water and swam all the way to the ladder by himself.
 Climbing the ladder like a pro!
 On Memorial day, Jackson had his first swim team practice! Jackson is a jellyfish on the country club swim team. It took him a while to warm up to the instructor because all he wanted to do was jump off the diving board, but she was able to keep him distracted!
 Beckett doing what Beckett does best. This child gets carted all over the place and never complains one bit! He is such a sweet little guy!!

After swim team, we stayed for the barbecue. They had so many fun things for Jackson. Here is Jackson getting his sword!
 He wanted to be a pirate so of course, he needed his pirate patch!

 No barbecue is complete without a little sweet treat!
 My sweet pirate. After the barbecue we then headed over to our friend's house for another barbecue. Between all the swimming and playing with the kids, Jackson was worn out!!
As for Beckett, he is now enjoying some time in the jumperoo. I cannot believe how big he is getting! I am so blessed to be the mommy of these two amazing little boys!!
