A Real Treat!

Daddy took me to the Beach today!  Magnuson Park is so fun with the beach and the wading pool!  Don't let the sour look on my face fool you.  I was way too active so this was the only picture Daddy was able to get of me.

After a VERY intense two hours of playing Daddy said it was time to have a treat and he didn't disappoint!
This was my first Polish Dog!  The great thing was that the nice lady at the Caddy Shack even advised me what was the best toppings.  When having a new food experience it is important to have a good consultant.
Yeah I didn't have any trouble polishing that thing off!  Next stop . . . Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest!

Celebrating My Deeda

My Deeda had a Birthday today.  Well, it really metamorphosed into a celebration of ME.  This is fairly typical and I love it!

Someone else has a Birthday and you are taken on an adventure to the pool and given a present.  Not bad!

Deeda, you are pretty cool.  You were a good Mommy to my Daddy.  Even though you didn't spoil him as much as you do me.
Sorry I didn't get to meet your Daddy (My Great-Grandfather) but I might make him proud by having a Navy career also.  I think that this hat fits me like a glove!
Again, it is good to be a Grandson on Deeda's Birthday.  In the end all the attention comes back to me.
Life is good!

Happy Birthday Deeda!

Pajamas: The Ultimate Game Changer!

Life can be rough when you are a toddler.  When Mommy refused another "Two More Minutes" of snuggling after she had indulged me for the fifth time I totally broke down.  Thankfully, Mommy reminded me of my new pajamas.

Oh my!  Nothing like ice cream cone pajamas to put a smile on my face!  They should have a new pair for me every time I have a meltdown.

Cantaloupe: 1 Jaxon: 0

Well it was worth a try.  The cantaloupe we got at the Rising Sun Farms fruit stand sure looked good.  I mean I do have a full set of teeth so I figured I should at least make the attempt.

In the end I wasn't able to break through.  Sad!  Eventually I just ended up licking it.

Life is all about challenging yourself but in this case I probably bit off more than I could chew.  Perhaps I should try to break it on the sidewalk????

It's A Bird, It's A Plane, It's Jaxon!

I really feel constrained not be being able to fly whenever I want.  I'm beginning to realize that my arms aren't going to turn into wings.  Sad!

Well, nothing says I still can't try.  
There is nothing wrong with still dreaming of what might be!

I Don't Like Being Left Out! Curse You Food Allergies!

Oh that Chicken Salad looked wonderful tonight.  I couldn't wait to dig into it!

Unfortunately, the salad was also filled with eggs!  Something that I am forbidden from eating.
It just isn't fair!  There are so many yummy foods that I want to try.  Why did I have to be born this way.
Well, I will definitely make sure everyone at the table knows how upset I am.
Okay, that is a little better.  Nothing like a fruit plate to calm me down a little bit.  I'm still mad though.

Redefining the Rules of Bath Time

Daddy acts completely out of line during my bath time.  Just when I start enjoying my bath he starts draining the tub.  Grrrr!

So I have decided to start making the rules.  I used to try to explain to Daddy that I am still dirty.  My new argument is "The Rules Say NOT!".

The Rules Say NOT Daddy!  The Rules Say Not!

Hopefully Daddy will understand that the new rules say you can't start draining my tub until I am satisfied.

Father's Day

Today was Father's Day.  Well, I let Daddy have his fun.  Hope you enjoyed the clothes.

After he opened all of his gifts it wasn't even 8:00 AM.  I informed Mommy and Daddy that is was now "Jaxon's Day" and it pretty much was after that.

Off to Remlinger Farms followed by Molly Moons!

Can you say "Pure Fun".  I experienced my first Roller Coaster, my first unsupervised Carousel Ride, my first Hay Maze, my first Canoe Ride and my first unsupervised Ice Cream Cone.
Yeah, it was Jaxon's Day today.  Eat your heart out Daddy!

Enjoying the Sun

Oh my, I think it is time to go out and enjoy the Sun.

Well, no better place than Madison Park!
The Red Wagon, my favorite toy store was closed which was unfortunate.  However, I did get the chance to visit The Red Onion.  Well, kind of.  It used to be the favorite watering hole of my Great-Grandmother (Bufi).  I only got a quick peak.  Toddlers in taverns is still frowned upon.
Oh well, I'm too active to be a Bar Fly.  Especially when there is a park across the street.
Yes!  I would like another round of wood chips.

Hanging Out With Mr. Strawberry

Oh I so love the Wedgewood Spooner Farms berry stand.  I get to bring Mr. Strawberry home.

He is so tasty and the best thing is that when Mommy got done we went home and made Strawberry Syrup and Strawberry Jam.  Yummy.
We had so much fun that we went back and bought another box!
Yeah, I admit it.  I was skimming plenty of Mr. Strawberries while Mommy was cooking.  Hopefully I won't take after Daddy when he was a little boy and brake out in hives when I overindulge these things.

Visiting the Gnomes

It's been awhile since I visited my friends down the street.  Turns out that they have multiplied since I last saw them.

Since it had been a few months since we had caught up I stopped my bike and we chatted.
I told them that whenever they felt adventurous they should come up the street and visit my garden gnome.
Sometimes I worry about him getting lonely.

When Life Gives You Lemons . . .

Mommy was telling me all through the day about going to the Water Park!  Oh boy was I excited, the Sun was out, I had taken an early nap . . . the stars had all aligned!

Until we got there!

This is bogus!  The city needs to take better care of its infrastructure!

Well, we were at the park so we might as well try to have fun somehow.

You know the saying.  When life gives you lemons make lemonade and I did!  I hit the swings and made a new friend named Jack.  After an hour I had forgotten all about that stupid Water Park being broken.

First Barbeque of the Summer!

No better time to have a barbeque to welcome my friends to town.  Nothing brings you together like food and Sun!

The only thing that is more fun is having Max and Abby come to play with my toys.
I thought that since some of the toys might be unfamiliar to Max he should ware safety goggles first, just a precaution until he gets a feel for them.

Why Don't I Have A NASCAR Dad!?!?!

Sadly, I am beginning to realize Daddy just doesn't seem to care about fast cars.  I am beginning to wonder if he is really my Daddy????  You can see it when he roles his eyes when I ask him to read me the Lightning McQueen book with the car noises for the fifth night in a row.
Yeah, I don't know how my Daddy can't become passionate about the roar of an engine and the screech of a tire.
Safe to say my Daddy won't be taking me to the Indianapolis 500.  
Oh to be the Son of a true NASCAR Dad!

Sadly, I think I am going to have a boring childhood.  My Daddy just doesn't seem to have the same passions as me.

Oh well, I love him anyway.

Sometimes We Have To Make Our Own Mistakes

My friend Matthew had his First Birthday today.  I was very excited to be going.  I had seen the cupcakes his Mommy had been making on Facebook the night before.
Matthew was really hitting the cake hard.  I am a little bit older and wiser so I tried to warn him.  It is ok  to have a little fun at your Birthday with sweets but you need to practice some restraint.

I'm only saying this because I've made the same mistake myself at my two Birthdays.

When the initial rush was over he was pretty catatonic.  Hey, I tried to worn him.  Sometimes life lessons are better to be learned through experience.

Regardless, Happy Birthday Matthew
