First Trip to the Dentist

This last week I took Ashton to his first trip to the dentist. I decided to take Ashton to Just for Kids Dental because they specialized in working with young child. The office had games for all ages of children and had movies playing. Just walking in the door the place was already looking really awesome. We get called back and right away Ashton was screaming because he didn't want to sit in the x-ray chair. So we skipped the x-rays and were taken to a private room. I was thinking this was going to be a horrible experience. The room was awesome, it had a TV on the ceiling playing a movie so that he could watch while he was getting his teeth cleaned. Ashton ended up doing great! He opened big and let them clean and floss his teeth and then opened big again for the doctor to see. I was worried he would have cavities because he's always sneaking candy and treats which of course I always have in the house :). His teeth were perfect and really clean and more importantly no cavities! I was really happy that it ended going really well and I loved the doctor and staff. Yeah for Ashton! Its also cute that they get little report cards of how they did, of course we got an A :) I was proud of him, I don't even like going to the dentist, but he did a good job.

My little Marine in training

Since Aaron has been working out side and had all this pipe laying around he decided to make Ashton a toy gun out of it. Of course Ashton new exactly what it was and was running around making shooting sounds. The funniest part was that he was holding it the right way and that he was running around naked. I swear my child really does where clothes. He was posing for the pictures and it reminded me of a picture of my brother Travis. He had made himself a toy gun and would run around in his underwear shooting things outside. I would bet that Ashton and him are about the same age in the pictures. Maybe my mom can find the picture and we could add it to this post, but for now here is my hilarious child who is always bringing a smile to our faces.

Our Flower Bed

We finally did it! We finished the backyard (well as much as we are doing for now). We planted some flowers along the grass and a few palm trees to remind us of home. Aaron worked so hard and did such a great job getting everything done. We now have a beautiful backyard and beautiful patio furniture to match. This is definitely going to be one of the most used places in our home. Ashton can't wait till his allowed to run and play on the grass. Can't wait till everyone can come and see all our progress.
