So last weekend we started our summer project. Our goal was we were going to redo the landscaping in the back our our home for a cheaply as possible. Who would have thought OUR friends would be digging theirs up the same weekend and have a backyard full of perenials. So this is what we did.
Pretty Sweet huh? the best part is it was FREE! and some of it alreay
started to flower. it is gorgeous. I just pray that i don't kill it.
that would make it so free didn't really mean much.
then I got to purchase two beautiful Hanging baskets. I have wanted these for three years now. Can you believe this coming weekend we have lived in our house for three years. It is crazy to look back and think about how we were only going to stay for 5 years and how long that seemed to us. What a big commitment we were making :).

Prison Area Don't pick up hitchhikers


So Everytime we go down to Indy we pass this sign by Grissom Air Force Base that says Prison area do not pick up hitchhikers. SO they warn you but in the same mile there are three gas stations and a car dealership. What are they thinking? here is the proof:

so are we setting our prison escapee's up to be successful or were we just not thinking when we placed our bussinesses so close? What do you all think?

I gotta say I have always vowed never to stop at any of these gas stations and the othere week when we were headed down to Riley, it wasn't even Jackson that made me stop, I had to go to the bathroom so bad and there was no way I could even hold it 20 more minutes to get to Kokomo. isn't it sad that I could tell you how many rest stops, bathrooms, gas stations and minutes it would take you from one to the other almost the whole way to Indy. I gotta tell you I can't wait until Jackson turns three and all of our trips are down to once a year. Won't that be the day.

EYES On the Road when driving, dude.

ok so we headed to RILEY last friday and we got some good and some bad news. We found out that there isn't a chance for reoccurance if we have another child...Praise the LORD. however as you can see in the pics we had many stops on our way home...Jackson got fussy I think about every 1/2 hour. It made for a fun trip home let me tell you.
the odd (ironic) part was he was happy the minute he was out of his carseat...i think he just has dad wrapped around his little finger. but oh well...it only took us and hour to get through Kokomo. Earlier this week we *Adrian and I* got the chance for a date night...JW called us with extra tickets to the WHite SOx TWIns game. it was awesome just to get out and have fun even though the TWINKIES lost. oh well. it was a very quick game.. good thing too because we still got home at 1:30 in the morning and Jackson woke up at 4:30. God was good though he let me sleep as a mother's day gift on Saturday.

For an update on Jackson, we are back in the hospital due to not gaining weight. WE have gotten some interesting news, not good. but we are waiting until tomorrow for a test to confirm our suspicions before we explain it all. they are looking at the speed at which things move through him. they are suspecting that his intestines are not working as fast as they need to to process his food. we will wait, pray and see what we find.

it is sooo nice to have a happy baby

it is so nice to have a happy baby and it is so amazing how the littlest things amuse him. like daddy making funny faces or the look of his own face in the mirror. it is so funny to me that he doesn't know he is looking at himself. thought i would share this with all of you today...

enjoy our happy baby:
