Happy Thanksgiving!


 Happy Thanksgiving from San Diego! We had a great time this year, visiting everyone in SD. It was so fun because Jack's finally at an age where he realizes where we are and who we are with. He had such fun with grandma, grandpa, his aunts, uncles, and cousins. He could call everyone by name and got excited to see them. This year I was terrible about taking pictures which I really regret. Last Thanksgiving I got so many good ones but this year I literally took zero thanksgiving day. Which means I didn't get any of Jack playing with his cousins Johnny and Hank which is too bad. They were pretty cute together. Though his cousins taught him how to jump off chairs, couches, and beds so now Jack's being a little daredevil.

We went on lots of walks every day and Jack loved all the freedom to explore.

 He also picked up a charming new habit from all of his walks with Pepe (his Aunt Leslie's dog and his best friend). Every time after Pepe did his business in a bush, Jack would run up, smile, lift his leg, giggle, and run laughing towards me.



 There were lots of park visits and even the mud was no deterrent. I know all moms are different but I really love how much enjoyment he gets out of playing in the water and mud so I don't usually stop him. It makes for some dirty clothes but I don't mind.



On Friday my cousin Christy was nice enough to invite us down to the Humane Society where she works because she thought Jack would enjoy the kittens and puppies. While we probably timed the visit wrong for Jack (his grumpy nap time), John, Leslie, and I all enjoyed it! The kittens and puppies were adorable and I think my husband and sister really wanted to take one home. Good thing I was there for a reality check. :-)



 And a few more pics from our San Diego holiday visit!
