Jaydens 25th Birthday!

Jayden turned 25 on Friday! To celebrate his birthday Gavin and I brought Jimmy Johns for lunch to his work. We also brought a few presents for his desk and office. Gavin made Jayden a picture frame with his hand print in clay. We gave him some photos to put on his desk as well. 

After Jayden got off of work, he opened presents and Gavin gave Jayden the Mickey Mouse balloon that he picked out for him. Then we drove over to the St. Johns town center where we had dinner at Cantina Laredo. We then walked around the shops for a while and headed back home to have chocolate cake. It was a great day!

Fun day!

Now that our cars are here we are able to go explore! Gavin and I were getting pretty cooped up without being able to go anywhere. We have done a lot of exploring between yesterday and today. Today we found an awesome park really close to the beach! Gavin loved the park, but I might have shed a few tears when Gavin wanted me to push him in the big kid swing with the other kids there. He looks so old!

After the park we went for a long walk on the beach. There was a nice breeze and it was a lovely afternoon. The beach is beautiful and I am so glad we will live so close. (our new place is only a 7-10 minute drive).  Toward the end of our walk I realized that there was a really bad storm headed our way. We barely made it out in time before a HUGE storm hit. We waited it out in a parking lot for 30 minutes or so. 

Baking Cookies

For family night this last Monday,  we thought it would be fun to make chocolate chip cookies. We had to do a lot of improvising since we are still in our temporary place. Since we didn't have a mixer, we used our muscles and mixed it by hand. Gavin was so excited to eat the cookies and he stood by the oven looking at  them while they cooked.
