Mother's Day

Another wonderful Mother's Day for me!  Jayson cooked salmon, made a salad, wild rice, and Teisha brought a homemade shortcake.  Jayson bought me a beautiful bouquet of flowers and the kids came for dinner.  My favorite part was spending the day with Jayson all day on Saturday shopping (we were actually shopping for him some clothes, but I just love being with him) and hanging out with him on Sunday and then having all the kids over.

We all adore Aria!

Grandma Strapping Aria In

When it's time for Aria to go home I'm always so sad, so I usually walk her out to the van and help strap her in.

Vegas For The Weekend

Jayson's and I love going to Vegas and hanging out for the weekend.  Since it was his birthday that's what he wanted to do.  We had to stay at the Aria since that's our granddaughters name.  It was a really nice place, but a little overpriced I thought.  We had a nice view.  We stayed two nights and ate at two different steak houses that we have heard about.  The first night we ate at Del Frisco's and we had king crab.  It was so good and the restaurant was pretty classy.  They valet your car.  I've only eaten at one other restaurant that they parked your car and that was in the 80's in Southern California. The meal was delicious.  We went back to our room and watched movies afterward.  We have walked the strip many times and were just there in January doing all that, so this weekend was more chill and just to enjoy each other.  Saturday poor Jayson was sick, so he stayed in the room and slept and I hung out at the pool all day.  I love being in the sun and I visited with a guy from Canada that was laying beside me.  That night we went to Edge Steakhouse and Grill and we each had filet mignon.  It was way good.  Afterwords we walked from the Aria to the MGM where we watched the Cirque Du Soleil- KA.  It was way better than I thought it was going to be and actually ended up being one of my favorites.  We have seen all of them in Vegas except two.  What a great weekend.  I love the point we are at in our lives right now.  Our kids are pretty much raised.  Jayden has one more year in high school, so he can stay with his sisters and Jayson and I can get away and spend more time just the two of us.
Del Frisco's for dinner.

Jayson Is 47

I know I say it every year, but really, where does the time go?  Jayson has been bringing up lots of memories lately from when we were dating and first married and it literally seems like 50 years ago sometimes.  I can't even remember half of the stuff he remembers.  It almost seems like a different life.  Since we already went to Vegas for Jayson's birthday, I just had the kids over for barbecued steaks and I made a german chocolate cake.  I can't believe he is 47.  I swear he NEVER ages.
Look at those arms.  Holy cow he is sexy!

Jayson wanted to be 74 instead of 47.

Aria is trying to figure out what grandpa is doing.

I got to keep Aria Thursday and Friday night because her momma and daddy went on a double date Thursday night and Friday night they had tickets to a concert at the Tuacahn.  I'm always happy to spend time with this little princess.

I love that Aria always has to have one foot
on her tray while she eats.

What a great grandpa.  He just
got right down on her level.

Special memories.

Aria's First Time To Be Sick

It's pretty amazing that Aria has never been sick.  She made it 9 months super healthy, even through the winter.  Today she is sick with a fever and she is trying to be happy.  I'm babysitting today and I feel so bad that she is sick, but it is kind of nice because Aria will actually hold still and let me hold her.  She also slept in my arms for over an hour, which never happens.  Aria is so busy all the time, so it's rare that she will sit still long.
She was only sick for a couple of days and we think
it was all teething symptoms.
