Jackson's 4th birthday!

Wow!  It's been a while.  I went on vacation for almost 2 months.  It was great.  I saw lots of family and friends, celebrated my brother-in-law's wedding, and ended the trip in Mexico with my husband.  Three days after we got back home was Jackson's 4th birthday.  I wanted to keep it pretty simple and not at home, since I knew the house was going to be a disaster from A) not being there for two months and B) unpacking from a two month trip.  So we went camping with friends.  It was at a state park about 20 minutes from  our house.  We didn't want to go too far away, in case a kiddo couldn't make it all night long, it would be easy to just go home.  I'm happy to say, though, that we all made it all night.  There were 6 toddlers, 3 babies, and 10 adults that actually camped over night, as well as a few families that just came for the party, then went home.  It was a great weekend.  The weather held out and the kids were great!

We had such a fun time!  And in a little over a week this guy turns one.  
I can't believe it!  I'm in full on party planning mode for his big day.  Here's a little sneak peek at his party.....
