Camp Delanco and Jason's b'day, mainly b/c I'm a slacker :)

I'm so behind on blogs, so I figure I'd do two in one and totally overwhelm you with pictures! Last week we spent a week at Delanco Camp in the Pine Barrens of NJ. Which equals LOTS of sand and pine trees. Here are some pictures from the week. Jason had a fabulous time and loved the water. He also figured out how to climb out of his pack n play, which served as his crib. Good times.
We never actually went in the boat in the water, but he liked to climb in and out of them!
SG1L3427He loved the water, was like a drowned rat the whoe time we were in there! (and the water is not dirty, it's a cedar lake which is why it's brown!)SG1L3503 The camp was for 4th, 5th and 6th graders, however there were about 3 other boys there that were slightly older than Jason (3 and 5 y/o) they had so much fun with the trucks!! SG1L3512 And my friend Teadora and I did a lot of this :) SG1L3518

And now for b'day pics :)
On his actual b'day we took him to Allaire State Park where they have real steam locomotive, he's been on it before, but loves it more each time we go!
I had found this great book by Shutterfly, that superimposes his face throughout a Sesame Street book SG1L3635
We took him out to dinner that night to our fav child-friendly restaurant: Chevy's. He loves the salsa and chips there:
And although he screamed bloody murder when the waitstaff came over and sang (loudly) to him, he was happy with his ice cream after they left :)
His party was the next day and it was "Bob the Builder" theme. Wow, did that go over well!! And we will now NEVER have a shortage of construction trucks in this house.
Decked out in his construction gear
This is actually the same decorated cake as last year, but I added some construction vehicles to make it a little different. I love Costco cakes, but they are limited in their designs. SG1L3681
One of the best toys he got was this roller coaster thing from Step 2. It was a HUGE hit at the party with all the kids. Jason loved it so much that he wouldn't get off the little cart, notice my cousin Kelli lifting him and the cart completely off the ground. Apparently she carried it this way to the top of the coaster! SG1L3677 Here's the link to the roller coaster.
It was seriously a huge hit for Jason all the up to the 5 y/olds that were there!

And I think that's enough for now. I have more pics at our site (, check em' out! Thanks for looking!

2 Years Ago Today

Two years ago today, a beautiful creature drifted into my life. I'm so blessed to call Jason my son. He has brought joy, love, frustration, laughter, fear, and every other imaginable emotion into my soul. I can't even imagine my life without this precious baby boy (who is not so much a baby anymore!) I just love him dearly, and there are no other words to describe it!

Our Happy Independence Day!

We had such a great day yesterday. We went to Uncle Doug and Aunt Sue's house after naptime. They have a great pool, but lately, Jason has had this fear of water (except bathtime). When we were walking out to the pool, he kept saying, "No water! No water!" and holding on to dear life to me. However, our nephews, Alex and Christian were in the pool, and there are about 4 or 5 balls in and around the pool. So, within a half hour of "No water no water!", Jason and Daddy had their bathing suits on and Jason was splashing around with the boys! After dinner, we all headed over to the local lake and listened a fun little band called "The Party Dolls" and watched fireworks. I was afraid Jason wouldn't like them b/c he gets a little freaked at loud noises. However, he LOVED them! Here are some pics from the day :)

OK Dad, I'm not too sure about this:

But there are balls, so I'll even put my whole face in the water to get them!

I like this so much, I think I"ll spash Daddy!

Pinwheels and pretzels. What else is there to life?

He would take the pinwheel to all of us and let us blow on it to make it spin.

Ahh... bear, binky, pinwheel, and fireworks. NOW, my life is complete.

Oh yeah, and a glow necklace. This scene occurred about 10 minutes into the ride home. He was an exhausted little monkey!

Thanks for looking!
