Hip Hop Hooray, Jackson is 5 Today!!

Today is my baby's 5th birthday! Time flies by so fast! Granddad and Scott made cards for Jackson which we put up in our den. We're having his party Saturday so today has been pretty low key. I asked Jackson if he wanted to go to lunch - that he could pick ANYWHERE he wanted. I was thinking about a "real" lunch but of course his child brain went straight to McDonald's. I asked him why he wanted to go there (knowing darn well it was because of the playground) and he said "They have the best food, Mom!". So we brought Scott and they had a great time running around like wild animals.

Jackson at 5!

I don't know about all you other mommies out there, but all I have to do is think about the moment I first saw him and it still makes me get all mushy. Being a mom is such an amazing gift!

Happy Birthday to Jackson. What a big boy! Connor's birthday is next month, and so we asked him where he wants to go. His top 2 choices were McDonalds or Wendy's. I told him no fast food and finally got him to settle on TGIFridays!
