Some shots from our weekend

First of all we had the baby on Wednesday. That was fun and exciting. We made a Friday night appearance at our Bible study. Saturday Jordyn and Jackson had soccer games, followed promptly by birthday parties for my two 3 year old nephews (which I attended by myself with Jordyn, Jackson and Vaughn while Aaron went to the airport with Lucy), then the SoCal in-laws flew in to see the newest Edewards baby, followed by an impromptu birthday party for Jordyn that Aaron put together. Sunday we made it to church (only 10 minutes late), went to lunch to celebrate Aaron's mom's birthday (that is the same day as Jordyn and Little Vaughn), then we made an end of summer visit to the downtown fountains. Whew!

The New Little Guy just a few hours old
Jackson all smiles as he comes off the field for a break. He loves soccer so much and said he wishes he could have a game every day. Their team is the Colts and they are currently 3-0. 
Jackson and teammate Johnny on their way to score another goal.
Sportsmanship. Jackson spends a lot of time on the field conversing with his own teammates and also the other team. It is so cute how social he is while he plays.
The birthday party. Waiting for hot dogs to be served.
Jackson loves his little brother. He sat at the party for at least half an hour holding vaughn while the other kids played.
Opening gifts was fun for all, even Aunt Janine. I think she may be having the most fun.
The birthday boys and their cakes. Dominic had a dinosaur eating his cars and Max had a volcano surrounded by dinosaurs. Props to my sisters and their wonderful hand made cakes.
Grandpa Vaughn and Grandma Pam meet Little Vaughn for the first time. 
Jordyn's birthday party. My little girl is 8. How can that be?

Her love of horses has not dwindled. She wanted a horse cake and is delighted with a new horse form her aunt Judy. She is finally getting some experience with real horses and it is not making her dreams of owning her own go away. Grampy and grammy bought her horse back riding lessons for her birthday and she loves it. 
The fountains. Lucy wanted to dive right in even though it was freezing cold.
Jordyn has a bit of a cold so she stayed her distance from the water.
My poor Jackson. He spent his time on the bench watching Lucy play after running through the fountains with his shoes on after being told not to. Look at that sad, remorseful face.

I love your casual first line ".....we had a baby and it was fun and exciting". Exciting, yes, but I was there and it didn't look fun!

What? No designer horse birthday cake for Jordyn?! Come on, Super Mom.
Yeah, right. Get some rest, ok?

Wow, you packed a lot into that week. I love your flat cake! Now that's my style. I can decorate on flat! Happy birthday Jordyn girl. And Jackson sitting on the bench...if he doesn't remind me of Travis A LOT!
Blessings on your day...

Slow DOWN!

And yes, I have fun at Birthday parties. So sue me!

Having a baby is fun and exciting...yeah. Fun?? You must be tired.

I call childbirth a combination of exhilirating and exhausting. But usually I don't refer to it as fun. Exciting at the end...but not really fun.

Do you ever slow down?! Get some rest you make ME tired reading about all you do after JUST having a baby!
Beautiful family you have there.

If you can enjoy the roller coaster, you don't have to slow down! But do enjoy it.

Congrats to both Jackson (for his soccer prowess) and Jordyn (for her 8 years!)
