We had a very good Thanksgiving this year, out at the lakehouse with Debbie and Raymond. Cheri, Greg, Paige, Patrick, and Matthew were there too, and our friends Joan, Ted, Lydia and Leo joined us as well. I took a bunch of photos but haven’t downloaded them to the computer yet. So here are a few that Peggy took:
Like I said, Thanksgiving was very good this year 😉
Today was Jack’s fourth birthday. I can’t believe he’s four already.
Just five years ago Christine and I were getting ready to buy our first house in Austin, with a five year plan before we had kids. Then two weeks after we closed on the house, we found out Christine was pregnant. “Life is what happens when you’re making plans” my mom told me.
It’s been an awesome four years. More fun than I thought it would be. And soooo rewarding.
We took Jack and Grayson to Chuck E. Cheese’s tonight to celebrate. The kids had a blast and we did too.
Here’s a photo of the boys paying air hockey:
Here’s a movie of the shenanigans of the kids from Halloween:
This past weekend, Christine and I took the boys to the Circus. To the Circus!
Talk about a blast. We saw a huge elephant perform, tight rope walkers from Columbia, a jumping troupe from Russia, clowns, dogs, ponies, little elephants that people could ride on, the human cannonball, and more.
The boys had a blast. Jack was glued to his seat the whole time, watching and taking every thing in… with lots of “whoa” and “wow” thrown in for good measure. Grayson wanted to walk around and play with his monster truck that he brought with him, so we did that while Christine and Jack watched the show.
At intermission we went down on the circus floor and jumped on a big bouncy thing, and got close to the ponies and little elephants (they aren’t that little, btw).
Grayson and I left after intermission, while Jack and Christine stayed and finished the whole thing. Jack stayed up until 10:00 that night… way past his bed time, but boy did he have stories for me when he got home.
What a good family event. We had a blast.
Here is a photo of Jack at The Little Gym from today. He lives going to the gym and is really good in the aparatuses.
