A posting

It's been a while. Sorry! Since my last post Jason was promoted to District Manager of North Florida! I am extremely proud of him and he is doing a wonderful job. The only downside for us is that he travels A LOT now. So that is one reason I have not had time to update this thing...
I will try to fill you in (with pictures) on what has been going on here in FL since October.
The pumpkin patch was a hit. Gavin loved all the pumpkins.

Gavin was a lion for Halloween! He was too cute in this outfit. It was so hot here he didn't last long in the costume.Gavin and Noah, the ninja trick-or-treating!Noah, Ashley and Gavin playing in their costumes.
Gavin and Ashley playing kissy face. So cute!
Gavin and I traveled back to AL for over a week! We stopped and visited the Bowman family in Valdosta. Tanner is adorable...and very large!
I was able to twirl at the alumni game this year and here is Gavin and dad (Pop) watching.Amber and I got to hang out and catch up!Amber, me, Lynn and Gia

We went to the Museum of Science and History (MOSH) with our friends last weekend. The boys had a blast. In this picture they are listening to a cow burp and pass gas...and of course they loved it.

Sarah and I at Mosh (and baby Silas too!)

Sweet baby G downtown Jax.

Labor Day Weekend

This weekend my parents came to visit! Gavin had fun playing with his Grandma and Pop all weekend. Gavin can say "pop" but for some reason he sucks in air when he says's pretty funny if you could hear him. We mostly hung out around the house and my parents helped us do a lot of yard work. My mom planted a few things in my flower pots (for me to kill- just kidding) and they babysat for Gavin Sunday night! Jason and I actually went out on a full out date to celebrate our four year wedding anniversary that was August 27th. Anyway, on with the pictures...

Gavin and my dad swinging at a restaurant we went to on Monday.

Gavin trying to steal the pirates beads.

Playing "bam bam" on a glass table. Nice.

Me, Gavin and Grandma and Pop. I think dad has his eyes closed :-)

Mom, Dad and Gav.

Jason and I posing at the AIA Brewery in downtown St. Augustine. Our baby-free date!
I forgot to mention that before we ate, we went to a winery to do a tour. We got there too late but they let us sample all of the wines. Before they would start our table Jason and I were carded! I glad we still look like young spring chickens. ha!

After dinner we saw the Golden Dragon Acrobats at the St. Augustine Amphitheater.

And we ended the night at the Tini Martini Bar in downtown St. Augustine. We had lots of fun and we are very grateful to my parents for babysitting!

Gavin has been a busy boy hanging out with his buddies lately. Almost every morning we are at the pool, or Tumbles (his toddler gym class), or a friend's house... He is having a blast hanging out with other tots his age. The picture below is Gavin with Noah and Jack. These three guys are hilarious together...tackling, sharing snacks, throwing fits:-)
This is Gavin at the beach surfing on the sand.
There is an inside playground at one of the malls here in Jacksonville. This is from a playdate with Ashley at the mall.
Gavin and Noah sharing a wagon ride at the beach. They were so funny because they didn't want their sandy feet to touch one another.
This is what always happens at the beach. Gavin totally wears himself out and naps in the tent.
A friend from high school (and my mom's best friend's daughter), Perri and her husband (who plays for the Suns) gave us tickets for one of the last home games. We went with three other couples who have kids Gavin's age and they had a great time running around.

Gavin, Jack and Noah at the baseball game...more interested in the parking lot below.
Gavin really thinks he is so cool when he wears his sunglasses. He will keep them on and push them back on his face if they fall off!

One step at a time

Like my hair? Gavin's last haircut was a huge disaster... I knew he would scream, but I didn't know the lady at the barber shop would totally freak out and chop his bangs like a 5 year old would. So, we have been "styling" it different ways with gel!
Gavin riding in his "new" car we found on the side of the road.

This boy is officially a walker! He has been taking a few steps on his own for the past few weeks. This weekend he started walking everywhere! He is still a little wobbly but he is so proud of himself!
He likes to carry his toys while he walks.

Mischievous Gav

This sneaky little guy found a way to climb onto my nightstand to destroy our answering machine. He pushed the laundry basket across the room to use it as a ladder:-) Poor Gavin tries to follow his "dada" to work in the morning. Jason had to work in Orlando this past weekend and we got to go with him! Gavin had a blast pushing his car all through the hotel. Sarah came over and spent the day with us Friday. She even babysat Gavin while Jason and I went out to eat! Jason had the brilliant idea of giving Gavin this ice cream bar before we left. What a mess.
Jason was so excited about Gav sleeping on his shoulder because Gavin NEVER lets us hold him while he's sleeping. He fell asleep in the bike carrier an hour before bedtime and we had a tough time waking him up.
Yes, he needs a haircut.

Gavin took his first trip to the zoo this weekend. He liked all the animals and loved the carousel even more. He rode it not once, or twice, or three times, but FOUR times. Granted we were stuck under the pavillion because of a rain shower...but he could probably have stayed there all day.

The sort of new baby jaguar.

Gavin was obsessed with the FISH! He did not want to leave this aquarium.
This is what he looked like after lunch :-)
This boy loves black-eyed peas and macaroni!

Actually smiling after getting his hair washed.
