This past weekend was great! Jason and I were able to enjoy our Friday morning together while the kids were in school by running a few errands. Jackson has not been feeling his best. I took him to the doctor on Thursday (he had dropped to 17.4# since Monday). Turns out that he had a viral infection, that turned into a bacterial infection over the weekend. I kept Jack home from church today and we now have an antibiotic to start tomorrow. Hopefully he will be feeling much better in a few days. Also, I FINALLY got my hair cut! Thankfully, my hair has stopped falling out and now I have all of the crazy looking pieces growing back in. We were planning on taking the kids to a baseball game Friday night, but the threat of rain made us rethink our decision. The kids were pretty bummed, but we went to the mall to play instead.

My dad came down and gave my van new brakes on Saturday! This saved us about $200!!! (Thank you Daddy!!!) Jason cut the yard and I am still working on pulling weeds. The previous homeowners did a great job on the landscaping. Unfortunately, Jason and I don't know too terribly much about plants/flowers. We are doing our best. Hopefully we will be able to do a better job with the yard this summer (seeing as how I am not about to have a baby and Jason won't be knee deep in grad school work).

We spent most of the day outside on Saturday. It was just absolutely beautiful! Jason grilled out hamburgers and we all ate outside. Saturday was just one of those relaxing days that you always imagine your life being like.

Here are some random photos of Jackson...

Such fun!

Jack is "exploring" now! Here we go again!

Hope Jackson feels better soon. Being sick is no fun! Glad you had a relaxing weekend!

Sounds like you had the perfect Saturday! With the warmer weather now hopefully there be more chances for Saturdays like that.

Hope Jackson gets better soon!! We're dealing with an icky cough right now, no fun.

I hope Jackson's medicine helps him feel better--Jordan had to go to Dr. and get antibiotics last week too!

I have a pic of Jordan demolishing a box of tissues too! Frustrating for about one minute then a sweet memory forever! :)

Your haircut is so cute! I'm not upset w/you b/c I actually got to see it last night, but if I hadn't seen you I would say..."How in the world are you gonna tell us you got a haircut then not put a picture???" :)

Just giving you a hard time!

Love those bathroom pics when they're on someone else's blog!

So glad your hair has stopped falling out. I was just thinking the other day that I was really dreading that! I thought I would be bald last time.

The weather this weekend was wonderful. Glad you guys enjoyed it too.

I'm sorry Jackson's been sick. I was wondering if somebody was sick since I didn't see you on Sunday. I hope he gets better soon. Poor thing. I'm with Stacy...should've put a pic of the new haircut. :) I'm sure it looks cute. Don't you love the exploring stage. My kids are still in it. :)

Anna pulled all of the paper towels off the roll about 15 minutes before I read this post. I laughed and laughed at Jackson. I guess its the age of curiosity.

I am so glad that you guys had a relaxing weekend. I hope this weekend was just as relaxing. I love the pictures of Jackson. He is so cute with that big smile on his face!
