Well…I have taken a long leave of absence. But for good reason, Jack and I traveled to California the first week of August and then had fun with my mom and old roommate, Joo Lin, who came to visit. It was a good time. I love having people over even though I am a boring hostess, and I love California. Here are the photos.
My dad had tickets to some B-town Western Days festival or something like that so we went to check it out. Jack got to ride a horse and was so brave about it. I would rather die than do that. I don’t love horses. Jack loved the live band and danced a lot…even busted out his break dancing moves on the cement. Funny boy.
We went down to SoCal for a few days and played at the beach. It is lovely there. I could sit on the beach all day…no problem. Jack loved it as well. He got most excited about his Subway sandwich on the beach. After a long day of sand and surf, this boy was tuckered out…well at least for 30 minutes. He is not a good car sleeper is one this thing this trip taught us.
He loved building the train track at Grandma and Grandpa’s. He built that one all by himself. He loved swimming at Aunt Kara’s house and playing with their dog, Max. And he sorta loved driving in the car for 10+ hours each way especially when he could put on his “cool dudes” (his word for sunglasses) all by himself.
I had fun watching these two interact for the few days that Joo Lin and Seoul stayed at our house. Seoul is adorable. I love her. They warmed up to each other eventually. Once Seoul got used to Jack’s crazy ways and Jack got used to her being around and showed off a little less. I wish Jack had more friends to play with regularly. It was good to see him have to share his toys and space. Just practicing for his up and coming gig as big brother! Which is + or – 25 days away. But who’s counting…
