Jack was slightly more interested in the penguin statues than the actual live penguins right across from it.
After we were finished at the aquarium, we got to meet Jonathan for lunch since he works in downtown Long Beach. Without traffic it's a 35 minute trip, so it's rare that we're ever down there to visit him during the work week.
We started the weekend off with a trip to the Orange County Great Park where they have a carousel, mini playground, and a hot air balloon you can ride that looks like a giant orange. While waiting for our turn on the hot air balloon, Jack and Jonathan rode the carousel four times. Jack LOVES the carousel, and he had to ride a variety of animals. He started off on the panda:
When he got on the fourth time, Jonathan asked which animal he wanted to ride. He pointed to the pig and oinked (pig snort)...he's getting good with his animal sounds. Here's a picture of him oinking while riding the pig...lol:
It was finally time for our hot air balloon ride, and Jack did really well. You go up 400 feet attached to a tether that brings you back down. You can see all the way out to the ocean and surrounding areas on a clear day. It was fairly windy up there:
A big first this weekend was Jack's first haircut on Sunday, July 22nd. Jack has such fine hair that we held off for a while on doing it, but it was getting to the point that it was just out of control and tangling in the back. It started off a little bit scary, and he wouldn't wear the cape.
He snuggled into Jonathan most of the time, but he actually did really well and was super calm.
They saved us some hair for his scrapbook that I will eventually get around to making :).
