As I said before, "D" and Jack seem to make a new friend everytime they see each other. I don't know if they ever formally introduced but Sidney and the other guy on the "fence" chilled out to some nice live music together. After the "green" farmer's market, I took them over to the plain old Farmer's Market which does not seem as huge now as it did when I was a kid. Was it a slow day, maybe?
All that hanging around looking at food made us hungry and we decided to have a picnic in the park. Here's Sidney with his dad, Kyle.
Da da da da.....it's Sophie's debut on the blog! Hey there cutie!
Of course, Jack got in some tree love while we were at the park.

Jack kept trying to climb into the cars with other little kids. He actually climbed right in on top of Sidney who quickly exited his vehicle!
Game face? I don't know what was going on with this look.
Sidney says, "Beep beep."
After getting a good workout at Pump It Up, we were hungry so off to McDonald's but then we had to burn off all those calories. Even Sidney's Nana climbed right into the play thingy!
Here's the proof, Sidney climbed up through the play tubes and went down the slide with me.
Seems like every time Jack and Sid get together, they make a new friend. The cool kiddo in the red Halloween spider shirt is a four year old named Jeremy. At four, he came right out and said that he thought Sidney and Jack looked different from other people he knew. I thought his poor mother was going to die from embarassment. The rest of us? Well we know the boys look a bit different, been knowing that for a while now. We just played on!
Going through the play tubes is a bit more awkward when you've got looooong legs (yeah that's what you get for calling me that really short lady!). Seriously, I'm not much taller than the kids and it never occurred to me that an adult could get stuck in those tubes. It's a good thing Christie's kind of flexible.
And I don't know why we don't ever take pictures of Sophie on these outings. Sophie, sweetie, when you are older and you check out this blog, just know that you are so sweet and adorable yet very very quiet and at this stage you are still sleeping alot. It won't be long before we'll have pictures of you climbing all over the boys!!!

Sleep! Ignore the mis-matched sheets and quilt and Mommy's bright pink blankie. And oh, yes those are boppy pillows. We don't want him rolling off the bed, do we? Life is good when the bipap mask fits well and Jack's heart rate and oxygen saturation are good. He looks like an angel in scuba gear. :)

On Saturday, we planned to go to this educational supply store that sent me an email flyer saying that McGruff the Crime Dog would be there. We went and bought a triangle (the musical instrument), a bell, and a magnetic Mr. Potato Head with our $10 gift certicate plus $7 for the overages and taxes. But there was no McGruff. I asked and the store employees had no idea. What a bummer! I had promised Jack we were going to go see the big dog and he was very excited.
I'm actually glad it did not work out, though. We ended up going to hang out with Sidney and his folks instead. Sidney and Jack swam in the pool until Sidney was so worn out that he actually fell asleep just being held upright in his Mommy's arms. While Sidney slept, Jack rode around on Sidney's plasma car. Since Jack liked it so much, I asked where to get one and lucky for us, Christie had seen one at a consignment shop the day before. We ran right out and bought it. When Sidney woke up, we all headed to the nearby park.
Sophie and Nana came too but they were chillin' out on a park bench while Jack, Sidney, Christie and I were riding the plasma cars and racing a little boy named Brendan who told us to call him Jones. Brendan/Jones--we did not really care what his name was. We just knew that he was a super cool kid who wanted to play!
I borrowed the Signing Time DVD Zoo Train from our local library since Jack loves animals. He loves watching the video and remember we got the zoo pass for Jack's birthday? This morning, we headed out to the zoo. Jack really enjoyed riding around in his little car.
He looked at the animals a little but I think riding around in a new environment was fun in and of itself. I am hoping that he'll pay more attention to the animals next time.
He enjoyed riding on the train
and he loved
splashing in the water!
We finished up the weekend by going to our home church where we found Michi waiting with delicious dairy free cookies who was not to be outdone by Pop who took Jack outside to play on Ms. Donna's porch.

A few minutes into the car ride home Jack sacked out. Ms. Megan said that he rested quietly on his nap mat but did not sleep that first day.
It's Mommy and Baby happily reunited that evening!
That weekend, we went to Atlanta to see Jack's cousin, Jessica, get married. It was a loooong trip but Jessica was absolutely beautiful and Stephen was so handsome so it was worth it.
Last but not least, David and mini-Dave on our way to our first Open House at Big School.
Jack is really loving school.
We had a blast this weekend at Sophia's baby shower and then at Sidney's birthday party but Jack's slacker Mommy did not take her camera and Sidney and Sophia's slacker family have not yet passed along any pics. Yeah, you, you know who I'm talking about. :)
