Updates

Here's what's going on in our neck of the woods:
  • *This movie has been filming around the corner from us since before July 4th. Yesterday we actually saw Nia Vardalos and John Corbett filming a scene. There's an entire fake restaurant. Crazy.
  • *Maggie hurt her leg chasing an 8 month old puppy on the 4th of July. We have instructions from the vet to keep her off for a week to ten days. We've been calling her Gimpy, 'cause we're P.C. like that. She doesn't mind getting carried from futon to bed and back again.
  • *We went up north to see my mom and my sister over the 4th of July weekend. This trip also allowed for the historic Meeting of Gus & Jo.
Here is some cute from our trip:

Jo in the highchair used for myself and my sister, playing with our toy apple (if my mother ever gets a scanner or lets me transport some pix, I will put up comparisons). He is making his Old Man With Dentures face.

An early episode of cousin rivalry (the toy they're fighting over is a wooden Fisher-Price circus set from my mother's childhood, as well as mine and my sister's):

At my sister's 4th of July picnic, Jo got to roll around with Xander, my sister's nephew on the other side (her husband's brother's son). Xander is about six weeks younger. In this picture, Jo appears to be giving advice, or perhaps telling a joke.

Cousin Sam prefers pushing his toy to riding in it.

Here's poor tired Maggie after chasing aforementioned puppy.

Jo loved meeting Gus!

My mom took us to a lake near her place so Jo could check out the water. So far he has enjoyed the bathtub, a kiddie pool, and the pool at the Y for his swimming lessons so I thought he'd like it. He was in heaven! We can't wait to take him to the ocean beach in August. (We were a little anxious about the sand-eating, though.) Here he is with his Grandmom....

and getting dried off.

Our little fishie!!

Your little fish is so very cute. That is great that your mom saved your highchair, I imagine those will be fun pictures to show him later. I hope maggie feels better soon.
