For Jaxon's birthday he got a new basketball hoop! He has been playing on the little Fisher Price one since he was about 2 years old. He is not a kid who really asks for things much... even at gift times (birthday, Christmas) he doesn't really have a list and we just kind of get him things as we see needed or what we think he may really like. The few times we've asked him what would like he just shrugs says "oh I don't know...something sports related". Well, we decided it was time to move up to some real hoops!
We surprised him after Awanas a few days early and he was so excited... until he saw the pile of pieces that had to be put together first :) With the promise of a good home cooked meal Dave convinced a buddy from work to come the next night and help (aka... put together) the basketball hoop. (Thank you Chris!!!)
Jaxon is found out in the drive-way everyday now shooting hoops and playing some ball. I envision many years ahead of us with the sound of the ball hitting the pavement and many games out front. Our boy is growing up... have fun, Jaxon!!!
