Week in Review - 4/14/12

How about that guy? Love that picture. He really is all smiles lately. What a fantastic age. He just keeps getting better and better and I'm wondering when it's all going to end. I'm worried it's sometime soon...when he figures out how to throw a temper tantrum or talk back to his mom. But, for now, I'm enjoying him.

We took an impromptu trip down to San Diego for a few days to see Grandma and Grandpa. He loved hanging out with them and running around their big house. Grandma was nice enough to read him tons of books.

She also had a huge basket of toys that Jack couldn't wait to dig through.

We visited the San Diego Zoo which I hadn't been to for probably 20 years. I was totally amazed by it. They've totally redone it and it's beautiful. Forget the animals, the layout and vegetation is really fantastic. I have some qualms about zoos but Jack does seems to really enjoy it so I'm happy to take him. I didn't take many pictures but here is Jack in the petting zoo enjoying the scratch brush a lot more than the goats.

And he here is with one of the wolf statues.

We even rode on the aerial tram that flies over the entire park. He was a bit hesitant and nervous at first but got into it in the head.

It rained all day yesterday so unfortunately Jack couldn't play outside like he wanted to. And, boy, he was bummed.

And now, more pics from the week!


  1. Sitting in the suitcase! Very, very cute. I also love the Back to the Future t-shirt.

    So how does Jack do on longer car rides these days? What does he usually do while you're driving?

  2. Thanks for the wonderful visit. We loved having time with you and Jack. Miss you already.
