Yesterday we had brinner (really this has got to stop) and Joe had his usual plate of eggs and toast, but after he got a taste of bacon that was all he was interested in.
He climbed into my chair to get the last piece and then he actually did a happy dance! Of course I had to get the camera and document this new passion for all you folks. And for Joe! Now he can look back and see when bacon first entered his life.
He is his father's son. So he will probably be ok.
Then today we interrupted Dave's fun evening of homework and took a picnic down to the river. It has been lovely and warm lately but the leaves are changing and you can smell fall in the air. We had a nice time watching the sunset and saving Riley from all the puppies that kept wondering by (tons of people out biking or walking their dogs this evening. You outdoorsy Minnesotans, you). She likes to see them from a distance, but get too close and she will velcro herself to mom or dad. It is kind of nice, actually - I like her strangling hugs.
Joe kept taking his roll over to the edge and pretending to drop it off and we kept telling him, "Don't do it, Joe." Riley picked up on that pretty quick and now Joe can't carry bread around without being told not to. Luckily, he loves Riley and so she gets away with being a little bossy.
Well, we sure our missing our peoples, excellent new friends notwithstanding. I hope you all know we love and miss you and pray for you often. And we feel your love too and it helps us. Never hesitate to call. Or skype. We got some little people here that love to kiss your on-screen faces.
