Big boy hair

It was Jackson's first time sitting in the chair to get his new haircut! He did great, only took us 2 years not to cry while doing it! Best haircut ever!

Family Weekend!

We missed going to East Texas a few weeks ago due to Jackson's fever so we made up 
for it this weekend and got to spend time with both of our families.  It was Weston's
 first road trip and I have to say that it went pretty well! 

We first stopped by Mom Ruth's to let her meet Weston for the first time.  
I'd say that they hit it off.  Both boys were so good to her.  

We also convinced her to go out to dinner at McAlisters.  Even though she insisted on picking up the check.  Here is a blurry hug from Jackson.

One of their favorite past times is taking a neighborhood stroll. I love how sweet he is with her!

Even Leah got to meet Mr. Weston with her mother, Ellen.  
She is 15 weeks pregnant here and already has the magic touch!

We spent all rainy Saturday at Mima and Pop's house. 
Jackson spends many hours a day organizing his Rescue Bots!

Finally, Mimi got to meet Weston and they bonded instantly! 

After going to church with Mom Ruth we ate lunch at Butcher Shop with Ryan's family.

The trip home went better than we thought it would. Both boys were so 
exhausted from playing they slept pretty much the whole way home!

Sunday night we found Jackson in the bathroom, poor guy was so delirious so we put him to bed.

I got Ryan tickets for him and a friend to go to the TAMU game against SMU.  
They were on the 2nd row so they got some TV time.

1st trip to the movies

Jackson has become a bit obsessed with Planes lately so we decided to take him to see his first movie in the theater, Planes.  There were only two other families there so he was able to run around and talk. Weston slept the whole time so we were all able to enjoy it.
