This past weekend, my sister took a few more maternity pictures for us so that we could get a couple family shots and some of just Jake and I. (You can see our first little mini session from a couple weeks ago here.) They turned out really good, despite the wind, so I just wanted to share them here with you. :-)

I'm linking up with Sarah from Our Journey and Darci from The Good Life to share what I put together for Jackson's Easter Basket this year!
This year, I got Jackson his first little Bible (Walmart), some Mickey Mouse Sidewalk Chalk (Walgreens), a Cars Bubble Kit (Walgreens), a package of Peeps, Reeses in the shape of a Carrot (mostly because those are my favorite and it's a little tradition of mine), and a few eggs with Starburst Jelly Beans inside. I also used the same basket as I have every year since Jackson's first Easter. You can see the last 2 Easter's here and here.
Jake and I are hoping to have a little Easter Egg Hunt for Jackson at our house before church on Easter morning, and then he'll enjoy several more that day as we'll have one at church, one with my family and one with Jake's family as well. He should be a pro by the end of the day. :-) Now I just hope we have nice weather.

This year is the 250th Anniversary of our city of St. Louis. In honor of the city turning 250 years, they have placed 250 4-Foot Fiberglass Cakes all around the St. Louis Metropolitan area at all kinds of Landmark Sites and Local Favorite Places. (Here's the list of all 250 cake locations.) I (and many other St. Louisisans) thought it would be fun to try and visit each cake site before the end of the year when they take them all down. I'm actually a little late to the party, but thought I'd try my best to see them all.
Last night Jackson and I visited our first cake. It happens to be at a local church in our city of Florissant, so it was easy to stop at on our way home yesterday evening. Jackson thought this was pretty cool!! I'm hoping throughout this Spring and Summer we can get to several more, if not all of them. I'll be posting all of our pictures to Facebook and Instagram as we find more cakes, if you'd like to follow along. :-)
Our first cake encounter @ Old St. Ferdinand Shrine in Florissant, MO.

My sweet sister took a few Maternity Photos for me this past weekend. I'm loving them so much! She just used my camera and I did a little editing on them. I think they turned out great!! I would like to get a few more with Jake in them as well, but I love the ones we have so far. :-)
The pictures with Jackson took a little bribing, but we managed to get some great shots. Thankfully my sister is fast and was able to snap some of these split second shots. Ha.
I'm hoping to get some family shots and some of just Jake and I on the 12th (after I get a much needed hair cut and color). That also happens to be my birthday, so I told him he has to go with the flow that day and not complain while getting pictures taken. ;-)
