Yesterday afternoon Jaxon & Brian headed down to the golf course to practice their putting. When they came home an hour later, Jaxon bursts in the house yelling, "Mama! Mama! I got chased by a bird! It tried to woody peck me!" Huh? chased by a bird really? A few minutes later Brian came over and said, "did Jax tell you he got chased by a bird? Check out this video."
Sure enough... Jaxon got chased by bird!

Brian & Jaxon now... May 2011
Brian so graciously offered to take a picture of me with my boy.
*Not exactly sure why it uploaded so small.
How quickly life changes.

How cute is this? Frances had the fire hydrant in front of her house painted! Adorable!
Later that night, our friends Lynn & Jana brought over pizza and hung out for a few hours in our empty house. It was great because Jaxon was able to play with his other best friend, Bailey. These boys are awesome with Jaxon.
Notice the adoration on Jaxon's face?

"I drank it all"
I believe he's saying, "Good manners!"

This conversation cracked me up! I don't know if I found it so funny because he's my kid, or if it really is funny. Any in case, I'd like to share. I'd like to say that Jaxon will not be going to school tomorrow! The imagination of a 3 year old!

We all taught kindergarten at Cottonwood together and funnily enough we all lived together at one point. Well, Nicole took my room at the house after I got married, but still. We had some fun times at that house, the house that is now a "grown up" house and where Mary & Emilio will be raising their baby girl.
Oh and then later Ami noticed that our Starbucks drinks went with our purse size.
We went to Guadalajara Grill where they make salsa at your table!Then we got serenaded. Which is awkward. How do the girls/guys on The Bachelor do it? Where do you look? Nicole started rearranging the table.
Clearly, Ami & I are the piggies in this group. Our chip bowl is to the right. Nicole & Mary's to the left. Notice a difference?
Umm, concrete chairs? Really?
In our single, care-free, wild days, we would have gone drinkin' and dancin' at the Cactus Moon, but now that we are respectable mothers and wives we went to Starbucks instead.
We decided to make it a monthly event. Why not? We need a break from our kids and husbands every now and again. It's good for our sanity.
By the way... we stayed out past 10:00 pm! Yeah baby! We Rock!
