God Bless Texas!!

Hey YA'LL! The Jackson family just got back from Texas! We went to spend Mother's Day with Brandon's mom Rhonda (Mémé to Cash James) & Jeff. We had a great time! Great G'ma Mona & Great G'pa Pete drove down from Iowa & we were also lucky enough to spend some time with Aunt Keri & Uncle Mike as well as cousins Christa, Corey, Kiley & Jeff! We really enjoyed the slow pace of Texas and the southern hospitality! Mémé Rhonda is an AMAZING cook and Jeff is quite the mixologist so we had a fabulous, relaxing week!

Cash James immediatley bonded with Mémé which gave Brandon & I a nice "break" from our parental duty! I was even lucky enough to read THREE books while we were there! Ah... vacation!!

A BIG Thank you to everyone for making this trip so fabulous & memorable! (I promise I will upload and get pics sent out SOON!)

Now that we're back in Washington...

We've been looking at Farmhouses in Snohomish hoping to find our own "homestead" but nothing has been quite right JUST YET... until then we'll just enjoy squatting at Papa's house!

Grandma Karen is back from AZ for the summer and Cash James is having a blast being spoiled by her (Brandon & I are enjoying our time "sans baby" as well!)

Brandon & I will be celebrating our TWO YEAR wedding anniversary next week, on May 26th! I LOVE YOU BABE! YOU ARE THE BEST HUSBAND, FRIEND & DADDY WE COULD EVER ASK FOR!!!

All in all it looks like it's going to be a GREAT summer!!!

PS - R & J : We know you are considering moving... we suggest Oregon, Idaho or Montana... more grandkids to coome.. don't want you wanna be closer????? =)
