Enjoying this fall like day!

Jack, Lucy and I took advantage of this beautiful day to get out and enjoy!



It was breezy and bright. Warm sunshine and no humidity - Perfection!


We all settled into a grassy spot near the path to people watch(or in Lucy's case "dog watch"), soak up sunshine and test out grass.





Notice Jack watching Lucy - he thinks she is bonkers! Before today Jack resisted grass but he had fun on it wearing socks and long pants.








For a while he just climbed on me but soon he got brave and ventured out.








Another awesome day in the sunshine!

Spa, shopping and relaxation!

I drove to SJ for a relaxing night away!


First up a delicious coffee!



Beautiful day for a drive :)!



At Nakai Spa enjoying delicious tea in their relaxation room. It had a huge fish tank - really cool but hard to snap pics of! I also got a Manicure next that was hard to photograph haha.


Pedicure - Purple toes! The hot stone foot massage was so relaxing.


Had my hair washed, conditioned and styled!


Then I went SHOPPING! Had so much fun and found everything I was looking for.


Got dressed up and went out for supper. It was peaceful and delicious!


After that I took in a bit of a free concert on the boardwalk then headed back to the hotel!


View from the room at the Delta! Such a rejuvenating weekend away!
(Jack and Daddy had a blast together too)!

Snack cup!

Jack has spent a great deal of time figuring out this new device. Jack LOVES Cheerios and having some snacks midday in his playpen has been great fun!


It's been an adventure - he loves a good puzzle!











Whew- ate them all! Exhausted!

Just Jack!

Today I just wanted to share some pics of Jack rocking out for the pirate penguin camera!

New iPhone case from Korea! Jack is in love it - hilarious pictures!
In two weeks I'll be back to work and who knows how often I will get to blog about just Jack.

But not this "Just Jack" haha. Although he is Hilarious. Geesh I forgot how much I love that show!

























Just Jack :)!

Baby Wrangling!

Jack is such a busy guy and sometimes a Momma needs to sit still! So I created a smaller area of the living room we're calling "the fort" for him to play in.


And since HE TOOK HIS FIRST STEPS today :) I'll be using this little invention more often.


Jack loves being in it because he can walk around back and forth from couch to table! He also enjoys reading a good book.


And I know I'll just be chasing him around more when he's walking but I'm SO excited to watch my little man achieve these milestones :)!

Baking a wedding cake!




Sean and Stephanie had their wedding ceremony today and the reception is tomorrow. It was a beautiful afternoon and we have tons of great pics but I won't share them until the bride and groom get to see them!



I've been a busy bee baking, icing, slicing etc the last little while preparing their wedding cake for tomorrow at the reception!


Very excited to share the final product and an epic cake cutting pic.


But for now just sharing a few baking moments! Our fridge and freezer have been purged to accommodate the three tiers. It is GREAT to have an excuse to clean out all the old bottles of jam etc that get pushed to the back of the fridge unnoticed. Or maybe an entire unopened 2L of milk that went bad 3 days ago. (How does that even happen?! Agh!)


While I bake Jack has been enjoying dates with Grammie and Granpie at Gail and Merts house. It's the most we have been apart and it is going really well :)! They tire him out ;)


Who knew I'd enjoy my time alone so much:)?!
