looks like he needs backup. Some of the animals that poor tiger has been mistaken for:
"Is that your cute little horse?"
"Aaahhh...did Ian bring out his llama?"
"Ma'am...your son just dropped his, um, yeah."

Matteo and Nicco's Adventurer (Pirate!!!) Party

After Habitot we went to our neighbor's pirate party. Ian's been very huggy lately and Tomas is easy to hug. You know the party's over when toddlers (Cozin, in this case) are trying to nap on the train table.

Love my "see" Nana! Here I am playing graveyard miniature golf at Habitot.
I loved seeing my friends dressed up.

Yerba Buena Play Circle

Dad takes a few days off and gets a taste of the SAHM life. We met Ian's pals Liana, Maya and Ally at Yerba Buena in San Francisco today and got the stamp of approval: "Oh, WOW!"


So he sits...for five seconds.

Nice Bunny

We saw so many of Ian's friends at the carnival. Here's a dino and bunny
(Alvaro and Leah).

Party Animal

This is kid is going to keep me up all night waiting for him to get home one of these days.

The Monster Mash

Halloween carnival at the YMCA. We dragged our sorry, supposedly non-contagious behinds to have some Halloween fun, darn-it. Madeline and Ian had fun at the kindergym and the dance room.

Milk and Cookies

Sometimes you just need to wash the dishes.

The Farm and Pumpkin Patch at Ardenwood

Looking at sheep. A little scared of pigs. Loving the chickens.

Halloween with Toddlers



We got to the pumpkin patch and Ian exclaimed "Oh, wow!" He had a great time.
Here he is sneaking up to a pumpkin and trying to pick it up. "Arrrrrr..."

Imagine waking up and finding yourself in costume, sitting on a haystack.

Welcome Cousin Marissa!

My Dad's cousin Sabina had her second this past week. (Does that make Ian and Marissa third cousins once removed or something?) It's the year of the girl in our family. Coupled with news that Big Yaya is getting better everyday, it's been a good week after all.
Check out that smile on big brother, Aiden, btw.
