Jaxon's Birthday

This weekend we celebrated Jaxon's 3rd birthday. My parents were nice enough to drive out for the weekend to celebrate with us. We had a great time and I took way to many pictures to post them all so I had to pick a few and save the rest for the scrapbooks! The first thing Grandpa did when he got here is figure out a way to hang our swing on the back porch for the boys! They were so excited and have loved having it there! The boys were so cute taking turns and pushing each other when the adults were busy!

We did lots of fun stuff while my parents were here. We went to the temple so they could see what it looks like and smell all the wonderful citrus trees on the temple grounds.
This year I did my research and learned how to make cake fondant and I used that to make and decorate Jaxon's cake. It turned out pretty cute. It was cuter in my mind but he loved it and that's all that matters!
This is him posing with his cake before we cut it!
To really celebrate Jaxon's special day we went to Peter Piper Pizza and played lots of games and had yummy pizza and bread sticks.
We went a little early and we were sure glad we did because there were lots of birthday parties that day so we played all the games and stuff first and then we ate so we beat the crowds!
Smile Grandpa! (the expert swing hanger!)
Dallen had just as much fun as the boys. He was so good taking them from game to game and helping them ride the rides!
Its a little hard having the boys this close and having presents and stuff for Jaxon and not for Austin. Luckily Jaxon has a short attention span and he would get tired of one toy and move on so Austin could play too.
