The weather has been beautiful, and we've been enjoying a lot of time outside recently. Jack needs to be outside to get that toddler energy out, and I think it's just good for all of us to get a little bit of Vitamin D.
Last week we went to the Irvine Regional Park where we rode the train, fed the ducks, and played on the playground with my friend Heather and her son Cole. Jack is obsessed with the train and talks daily about getting a ticket and riding the train. He also had a blast feeding the ducks pieces of bread:
Later in the week we went to his favorite park. It's a multi-level park that has 3 or 4 different playgrounds so we generally don't go anymore since it's impossible to supervise him well enough while pushing a stroller. Last week I put Owen in the Baby Bjorn and took Jack, because I know he loves it. Once again he proved his amazing climbing skills:
He climbed up this entire thing without any help. I stood under him to catch a possible fall since I know the one time I don't is when he'll lose his footing, but he made it up without problems as usual.
This long Memorial Day weekend has been a lot of fun. On Saturday we went to Laguna Beach and walked along the water. Jack got soaking wet being hit by some pretty big waves at his low stature. We were there with Jonathan's friend Chris who took this picture of the guys.
Here's another one Chris took of our family of 4...a rare picture :). We couldn't get a nice one due to lack of cooperation from the little ones, but I feel like this is a more natural depiction of the family. I'm not sure what exactly Jack was saying, but he was thinking and trying to decide something with his finger up to his face saying, "Mmmm..." Owen wasn't a fan of his hat, because he would stop crying when we took it off.
Today we went to the park, and Jonathan showed Jack how to climb a tree:
