2 months we have been married!!!

Today was a busy day!! We woke up! Got all of our stuff ready....then we went to the post office to ship off all of our packages! Then we stopped at McDonalds...said hi to Ann! And got James a chocolate shake and cookies ( thank ann)

Afterwards we headed home...and spent some time with My mom and dad...and my grandparents!!And of course Madison!!It was really nice!! Soon enough it was time for us to go!! We said our goodbyes....and hopefully we will be able to visit soon again! My dad was leaving after his week vacation...to get back on the road again...so he had to say his goodbyes to my mom too!!

My mom took us to the airport!!Then we said our goodbyes!! After we waived goodbye and went through security...of course James was too nice! We got searched! Well they probably search half the people it is such a tiny airport!!! But the people were nice!

We got on our flight...and wow...This lady was freaking out...saying and swearing that she didnt want to be on the plane...saying she didnt care if she got arrested freaking everyone else out on the plane...well the flight attendant calmed her down...giving her stuff...while her little kid was kicking our seats and coughing all over us....Seriously..this lady was faking it!! How annoying what some people do to get attention!!!

Well when we got to Atlanta and on our next flight it was very nice!! I read a whole book!!! Nicholas Sparks "The Choice" I think I cried the whole begining of the flight!!! Afterwards they had tvs in every seat and I watched the Maid of Honor!! Wow!! Such a cute movie...it made me laugh and cry!!!

Well it was a good flight!!!The only bad thing about it....it wasnt holding our luggage for some reason....it was on the next flight!! Well it was the first time I ever saw Jameson get mad!!! I was the one that needed to calm him down!!! LOL!! ( I guess there is a first time for everything!)
Good thing Jenny and the kids were patiently waiting for us!!!

It was a great trip ...now back to reality!!!!

And Happy two month Anniversary to us!!! It was a great one!! ( well the trip!)

Cedar Point and Kalahari!!!!

So, the day after the wedding....we were planning on going to cedar point...but it was calling for 100% rain!! So James and I decided we werent going to go...so we slept in! Till we got a knock on our door...and My brother and his wife were dropping off their baby so they can go to Virginia Beach for their honeymoon! But...it was beautiful outside and the forecast had changed!! So as soon as they left we called Lauren and got ready and drove over and picked her up!!!
James drove to Sandusky ( it was easy thanks to the Garmin) while Lauren slept :)

We got to cedar point and it was still such beautiful weather!!We figured we could at least get on most of the rides!!

It was neat to see all the Halloween stuff!! It was the begining of freight fest there! They even had haunted houses!!

We did almost all of the rides! But one...the one James really wanted to go on and convinced me to...we were waiting in line but the winds got to over 45mph...so they had to close it!

We were getting ready to leave....and decided to call Kalahari it is an indoor waterpark! So the three of us decided to get a room so we can enjoy the rest of the time there!!!
So as we left it started to pour and get super windy!!! While we were driving to the resort a sign even flew into our windshield!

We had to stop at target to see if they had bathing suits...but no luck! Wrong time of year....

So we went to the resort and checked in....then found some bathing suits!!! Yay!!! And then we were so hungry we had to eat!!!!

There were 3 restraunts in the resort...Thank goodness!!! There was no wait!! We were the only ones eating there :) Good service!! And the food was amazing!!!

After we ate....we went to get ready for the waterpark!!!! It was so much fun!! They even got me to go on the slides!! There is this one that really freaked me out.....well i was the one to go backwards!!! Yikes!!!
Here is a picture before ( dont you love the random guys in the back posing!)
Here is us in the tunnel of the slide...Do I look happy????
I can say that I did go on it more than once!!! I did love the wave pool!! It was my favorite!!!

That night...we went and got some chocolate and icecream from the little shop that they have in the resort...then James and I went to the store....and then got me some taco bell!! When we got back to the resort...we went to the arcade and played lots of games!!! Skee Ball is the best!!!

When we got to the room...Lauren was trying to sleep...So we watched Get Smart!! Well I fell asleep too!!

So ....the next day!!!

We woke up...got all of our stuff together while Lauren was at the spa getting her nails done!! James and I checked out and afterwards we went down to the arcade....we played even more skee ball...till our points ran out! We had a bunch of tickets we won...but didnt get a prize :( We gave it to these little kids that would enjoy it so much more!!
Then we went to the waterpark!! I actually went on all the slides!! I am so proud of myself!!! Then we got lots of underwater pictures ( we love our camera!) But it was a lot harder to pose under water!!

Well this trip was a ton of fun!! One that Jameson and I decided we will do everytime we come to OHIO!!!!

After the waterpark we ate at Kahunaville...It was so good!!

And we took pictures with a baby tiger!!! I will try to upload it on here!!

Here are some more pics!!! Enjoy!!!

Sept 13th!! Gideon and Pam Congrats!!!

So today...we felt like we brought the rain with us!! It poured all morning!!! My mom and I met Pam at the hair salon and watched her get her hair done ( Poor Pam...the lady didnt know what she was doing...But good thing I was there!I assured her I would fix it later...too bad she had to pay for it!)
After they were almost done...My mom and I ran to target to get some last minute stuff and of course Starbucks!!! Once we left target we headed over to meet Pam....Once we got there the Limo was there to pick me up!!
Then we headed to the church! It was only like a minute away!! After the limo driver dropped us off...he was on his way to pick up the boys!!! We all were getting ready...i did my moms hair and makeup...Worked on my hair..and fixed Pams hair and helped some of the girls with theirs!

Then James needed to come and help tie the knot on the back of her dress.....He did an amazing job!!! Then the flowers came...Poor pam...they were nothing like she wanted....So I called my good friend Lauren and she got ready to come to the church bought some stuff for the bouquet! So in the meantime...I had Pam ask someone to get us a dozen more roses...so I took the flowers arranged them...and got them ready for Lauren to tape!! We saved the day!! Lauren did an amazing job!!! And then it was time for Pam to walk down the isle!!!

It was a beautiful ceremony!!
Now time for the limo ride to the country club!!

Yes, Pam and Gideon got us non-alcholic wine!! Lol!! It was actually good!! We arrived at the country club...It was the most beautiful reception ever!! And the food was amazing!!! It was so much fun!! Lots of laughs and tons of dancing!!!!

Nice Butts!!

Then we hurried back home...got ready...Went to Pam and Gideons house so I could give Aiden a haircut before their Rehersal Dinner!

After Aidens haircut we went to the church where they were getting married....it was a different experience...Their Pastor was very animanted.... Aiden didnt like the idea that he couldnt be near his mom and dad ( good thing they did a rehersal to see that!)
After the rehersal we went to this nice restraunt... Papa Joes in Akron! It was so nice and so much fun to have everyone there! I have never seen Gideon talk so much!! Well...he did get a bottle of wine in him!! Here are some pictures from the night!

August 19th!! James Birthday!!!Suprises Galore!!!

So on the Sunday before we had his "family birthday party"! It was a ton of fun! We had his whole family over!!There were 7 kids and all the Adults!! Our house was suprisingly pretty clean after!We had it mexican themed!So it was some good tacos!!!

So I had been working all week on trying to figure out what to get James - So Christopher helped me decide! I wanted to get James a blue-ray player for our new t.v...since watching regular dvd's just dosent do it on a bigger tv! So I decided to get him a PS3!!Now the only thing...how to buy it without him seeing...He does watch our bank account all day!!LOL!! So I called his Sister and she helped me get it!!!
So now it was time to let Jaiden and Tryston know - not to tell him!! We got all the accesories to go with it ( everyone chipped in) So I had to hide it...Thank goodness our friends Michael and Leilanie live next door!!!

So as we were giving James his presents.... I told him I was giving his early..
He got Hdmi cables from his mom & Dan..and we told him it was for his Wii(that we just got)
Then he opened up the remote( that says PS3 on it) and a Blueray dvd from Christopher and Jenny and the kids.... ( and tryston accidently said it is for your PS3)good things james is oblivious!! He still had no clue...
Then he opened it up very suprised!!!

So on his actual birthday!!Sam and Jeremy told him they were taking him out to Red Robyn for his Birthday!We actually planned a suprise party - James had no clue (even though his niece told him that day...but his mom said no that was on sunday...and James...believed that his mom would never lie)

So we had 32 of James close friends there to celebrate!!! It was so much fun!!! And he was so happy that everyone came!!! It was a great birthday!! - he said " wow this many people still like me" It meant alot to him!!! So James is 26!!!!
