Is it Friday Yet?

This week seems to be dragging along (it's only Tuesday :-0 !!!). It's done nothing but rain and storm. We had three tornadoes in Virginia yesterday, one only about 20 minutes from here. I hate weather like this and can't wait for the sun to shine again! Saturday we enjoyed the last day of sunshine by taking Braxton to Maymont Park for the very first time. How can you beat a free park with animals, gardens, and an aquarium. It was a very long walk but it felt good to get out. Of course Braxton had a blast. He wasn't too fond of the pig that got a little close to him or the chickens. A little goat licked his hand though, and he was so excited. You would think that the chickens would seem less threatening than a goat but I could be wrong. It was his own special day because he got anything he wanted. He got his first taste of ice cream and pudding. He also got to have his paci all day which was a mistake. Now he wants it all of the time (back to square one on the weaning). After going to the park we went out to eat and Braxton got to ride on one of those rides that they place outside of Wal-Marts and such. He was laughing and having a good 'ol time. Of course it wouldn't be one of my blog posts without some pictures! :)

On a completely different subject, my husband and I are really excited with Braxton's birthday coming up so soon. What really sparked the excitement and made it seem so real was seeing the invitations complete. A very sweet and very talented woman, Anelys, designed them for us. She does excellent work and it was better than I had imagined! Thanks Anelys (http://www.3littleflowers.com/)! I really want to post a picture of the finished product once I get it but I don't want to ruin the suprise for people who might be getting one in the mail. I can't believe how quickly this birthday is sneaking up on us. Better go back to finishing the plans!
