Anyway, I am too tired to organize this post or write much about it.
Oakland zoo. It was nice Daddy was able to have MLK Day off work to spend time with us.
Tech Museum in San Jose last week. This is a small submarine.
Awesome slippers Big Ben brought home from work for Benny. They are always getting rid of cool stuff that is not "age appropriate" for the students there
Chillin' with dad's ipod. Ben is nice to share since he owns at least 3. I, sadly, have none.
All the rescue vehicles are parked backward in the station so they can rush out to help somebody when it's time.
My 2nd non-rectangular cake. We celebrated my dad's bday on Superbowl Sunday, so even though he doesn't watch football, he got a football cupcake cake
I just want you to check out my mom's legs. Pretty buff for a _____ year-old.
I can't remember why but Ben watched Benny all day one day. They read books, practiced letters and numbers, played, and did crafts. I was very impressed. I still say he should be stay-at-home dad. He's much better at it than I am. (No, Benny did not write his name by himself).
And, most importantly, Benny's trip to the firestation! I've been meaning to take him for several months now and have been trying to find a day to fit in several things together to make it worth a special trip to Cordelia (Fairfield). They were so nice and actually seemed excited to have us there. They invited us back anytime. They were even nice enough to tell Benny that real firefighters use the potty, not pullups or diapers (or their underwear! Grrr), so he said he would start using the potty all the time (have yet to see this happen, but we'll see.) It was so cute to see how excited he was, even if he got all shy once we were there. I even thought it was pretty cool. To all my firefighting friends, thank you for all you do! My son sure thinks you are heroes
