Long car rides and Birthdays

The beginning of new beginnings!

My first grandchild, Jaxson, was born one year ago today. I was there when he came into the world at 10am, weighing 7lbs 11oz 19 inches long. It was such a euphoric experience that I honestly wasn't prepared for!

 We were not particularly thrilled with this pregnancy being that our daughter was 23 and not married to the father although they are together, its not the best relationship in the world. Nevertheless, Jaxson had arrived and it was the beginning of a new beginning for Jim and I as Grandparents!

For his first birthday they decided to have it in his parents town, some 2 hours from our house. It was okay with us because we always have things here and its only fair we share. Unfortunately, we have a LOT of car sick riders in our family so the 2 hour ride was NOT a pleasant one, but we made it there and back with NO vomiting which is always a plus!

His family is awesome and will think of every last detail when it comes to a party. They rented a beautiful clubhouse in their area and boy did they go all out to think of everything to make his first Birthday special!

My daughter Savanna made this so all the kids could get their picture taken as Curious George. Everyone loved it!

Boy that cake was good!
After the party we headed back to Pa to celebrate a good friends 40th Birthday where we took our turns riding a mechanical Bull. Wow, what an experience! Today to celebrate Kaylee's 24th Birthday and Jaxson's again.

What a great way to spend the weekend celebrating three wonderful peoples birthdays and their lives!

Happy Birthday Jaxson, Kaylee
