tuesday night we went to dinner at another favorite restaurant (asian star in midvale, i highly recommend) to celebrate b's dad's birthday and jack finally got to meet his first & only cousin, cole! "baby cole" is adorable and jack thought he was pretty cool...until he started grabbing jack's hair. haha.
the weather all week couldn't have been better (maybe a little less dry...my lips were peeling & i was getting daily nosebleeds by the time we left) and i loved seeing the sun!!
thanksgiving was a great day with lots of family & lots of food. :) three pieces of pie for dessert? sure, why not.
the funniest part of the week: while i was getting my hair done on tuesday, b took jack to the university of utah fan store to pick out a little football helmet. we'd been planning to get him one for christmas (since he demands a helmet while watching football but all we currently have is his scooter helmet...not quite the same effect) and up until now we'd never had a problem buying his presents with him sitting right there -- but no longer. jack was OBSESSED with this helmet and wore it all around the store, wouldn't even take it off to pay or to get in the car. he ate & drank with it on his head and wore it nonstop the rest of the day. b got it out again on thanksgiving and jack wore it for all the football games, all day long. it was a wrestling match to get it off of him and into a box to ship to my parents' house for christmas -- he's asked for it twice since we've been home. oy, that kid.
just running around, entertaining the fam...
after a little required black friday shopping (at 10 a.m...i'm definitely not the die-hard i used to be) we grabbed one last cafe rio burrito and headed to the airport. we got home to a cloudy, rainy seattle and finally stopped sweating. :) good to be home!
