Before I get too far into this post, you'll be happy to know that Craig is home, safe and sound. It's been a long, busy week, and we're very happy to have him home.
Before that, however, we spent a lot of time just trying to keep busy...not that we needed a lot of help considering that our schedule is normally full enough! As I mentioned, we had a picnic on Wednesday night. It was a cool but pleasant night, and we had a really nice time eating out in the yard. And yes, Jacob insisted on wearing his fireman helmet!
Friday I managed to get a little time to myself, which was much appreciated in the midst of over a week of being on call full time. My boss sent me home early, so I had a couple hours to do whatever I wanted before it was time to pick Jacob up. Of course, I could have gone and picked him up early, but considering the circumstances, I figured it would be better to get some alone time and pick him up feeling a bit more refreshed. So, I went to Old Navy, which was having a great sale, and got six things (including a pair of my favorite jeans!) for $35...not bad!
Saturday we had a pleasant morning and early afternoon, and Jacob spent much of it running around looking like this:
|The glasses are Handy Manny ones he got in some birthday goodie bag...never really enjoyed until now!|
|Cute picture when we were looking at the small tortoises...|
|Face to face!|
|They just put in this little play area, and Jacob loved it! Playing drums on the turtle...|
|And more on the alligator...|
|And saying hi to the alligator--that's his snout!|
