We had been counting down the days until Mimi's visit for quite a long time! It had been too long since we saw her, and I couldn't wait for her to see the changes in Graham! When she was here when he was born, she was amazingly helpful, but with Jackson mostly. I felt bad that trip that she didn't get much snuggle time with Grahmmers. This summers trip was a bit chaotic, but this last trip was great--she really got to spend some time with him!
Mom got in last Thursday night, so she was here to take Jackson to school Friday morning! I made the most of her extra hands, and we ran a ton of errands--mostly returning things, so there was a lot of in and out of the car. One huge perk of giving up naps was we got to take Jackson to lunch after school without worrying about the time! That evening we stayed home and I made a very fall-ish dinner: Baked Acorn Squash with Sausage and Rigatoni Filling and Pumpkin Biscuits. On Saturday, we just hung around the house and played. After quiet time, we got out Jackson's new baseball set.
He had such a good time hitting the balls that flew out of the toy.
I love the shadow in this picture!
He had great fans!
These are one of the favorite things Uncle Larry and Aunt Michelle sent when Jackson was a baby!
That night Susie, Joe, and Rachel came over for dinner. After dinner, Susie, Mom, and I went to see "Pitch Perfect." It was really good and we had such a good time!
On Sunday we headed into the city! Our first stop was to show Mom the new Martin Luther King, Jr memorial. The view of Jefferson was pretty good, so I took a picture of the boys :)
Fall is really here!!!
Meandering by the WWII Memorial
There were a TON of planes flying! I loved being able to get one in my picture!
Jackson was SO excited to go see "Uncle Larry's favorite!" It was really cute!
And, we have Mini-Josh #2 :)
