I don't know which of the next two photos are funnier. This one where he seems to be jauntily skipping and having a great time....
... or this one where he's scarfing down his lunch

Zoo Day 1

The Dallas Zoo lowered it's admission price to $5.00 during February. It was such a good deal, Jack got to go two days in a row. We all three went with Nana K. and Papa K. on Sunday and then Jack and Heather went on Monday with his buddy Michael and his mom and dad. Also on Sunday, his neighbor friend Gracelyn and her parents showed up and we ran into them a few times.

Here are the highlights from Day 1.

Riding the monorail
Goofing around
Yeah! I LOVE the zoo!!!
Turtle rides were free
Jack joined an Asian Kangaroo gang for a bit

Zonked out at the end of the day
This last one is not a cute grandson shot, but I thought it was too impressive not to share.

This is how the boy takes a lot of his meals lately....
He also likes to climb in our bed and watch TV. He has to have "his" remote and a book, one of us has to be next to him, also with a remote and a book.

Rest in Peace BC and Abby

Two animals gone a day apart. Grandma and Poppa's Barn Cat, "BC" and Abby the dog who belonged to Uncle Blake, Aunt Jan and Cousin Gracie. We'll miss you guys.

Snow Day #417

Man, we're getting cabin fever around here. We did squeeze in a few activities to keep our sanity.

Snow flake craft project (the wild hair feeds his creativity, so don't judge)...
A little male modeling (what a difference a good brushing makes)...
Getting ready to go out in the snow...

Valentine's heart craft project with Gracelyn..
Serenading Gracelyn...
"Fixing" the light switch with his hammer...
