Extra Special Visitors

We had extra special visitors come a couple of weeks ago. I was so glad when Emily and Kim came to meet Jackson and visit with Russell and I.
We were so ecstatic to see each other!

Emily and Kim are two of my very favorites in the world! They held Jackson and kissed him lots. :) I told Emily that I wish she lived here so she could babysit Jackson. :)
Russell, Jackson and I went to dinner with Kim and Emily at Table Mesa. It was Jackson's first time "out to eat" with us. He was asleep most of the time and hardly made a peep.

Kim and Emily on the square after dinner. We enjoyed walking around together.

Emily is studying Elementary Education at OBU. She loved this wall art that children in the area drew and colored. It was made into tiles and is displayed downtown.

We also went to the buckyball in front of Crystal Bridges.

The next day, Kim, Emily, and I went to lunch at Crumpet Tea Room. They loved it just as much as I do.

Too fun!

They loved meeting Jackson. He was so good with them, too and hardly cried any.
Thank you, Kim and Emily, for coming all the way from South AR to visit us! We love you!

That Friday, Russell's parents, Ricky and Jackie came for the weekend. They babysat Jackson for us so Russell and I could go on a date night. We went to see this movie:

It was SO SO good!!! If you haven't seen it, go see it soon. :) We also had yummy pizza for dinner. Always good. :)
We enjoyed spending time with Ricky and Jackie and of course, they loved holding Jackson and playing with him. He's pretty cute, I have to say. :)

Jackson loves them lots.

Too sweet.
We went to Babies 'R Us in Joplin on Saturday. It was a fun little road trip. And the first time I changed Jackson's diaper in the car-dirty diaper of course. HAHA! We laughed the whole time.

Soon, my family will come see Jackson and I can hardly wait! Hope y'all are having a great Summer so far!
