Plaza Art Fair

We love, love, love Fall in Kansas City! All the little festivals and events are so fun. We headed out to the Plaza Art Fair this weekend. There is some fun art, but mostly we enjoy the fabulous food and drinks! Just a fun Sunday outside for us!!

Jackson loved throwing pennies into the fountain!

Gone Fishin'... kinda

Last weekend Jackson and Justin had their first fishing trip, kinda! We took a trip to Deanna Rose for the Apple Festival. A trip to Deanna Rose is always fun for us. This time Justin got a bucket of worms and a fishing poll for he and Jackson to share! Jackson wasn't too interested until Justin caught a fish! Jackson decided to try and pet the fish! It was funny!

The newest thing in our home is Jackson talking so much! He will try to repeat about everything we say. He is even starting to put together 2 words. He is singing along with us, telling us when we wants things and even talking back!! He is also running to give kisses to us before bed and full of lots of hugs.

Bragging about Alison

I was lucky enough to marry into an amazing family. Each member of Justin's family has been so great to me. They are each "special" in a different way. The list of ways is really too long to mention.

Most recently Alison, Justin's younger sister, but not the youngest, has started to write for the Baltimore Examiner. I just wanted to post about her articles because they are great. She is a great cook with some simple ideas. My goal is to make one new recipe a week- I learned that from someone wise:)

Baltimore Trip 2009

We just returned from a fabulous trip to Baltimore! The best part was visiting Alison, Josh and Maxwell but we also got to see some neat stuff along the way!!! Jackson did pretty well on the 2 and half hour flight and enjoyed seeing all the planes!


We also enjoyed a fun day at Port Discovery Kids Museum which is by far the coolest place we have been to play with Jackson! We also enjoyed a trip to the Tot Lot which is this huge random playground in the middle of this neighborhood of row houses. Also a fun outdoor concert and excellent food!

Jackson and Maxwell played pretty well together except when Jackson would hit Maxwell and take every toy he wanted to play with!

After the boys went to bed we enjoyed fabulous dinners each night- Fajitas and margs, Crabfest 2009, yum Pizza and fabulous wings!!!

Please check out the fun video of the boys in the Jackson Live section to the right!
