Jack was not so excited to put on his costume, but once we got it on, he thought Halloween was pretty good. As soon as he got candy from a house, he wanted to eat it right away, saying "openit, openit"... Luckily, we were able to give him smarties at a fairly slow rate. The duck suit is a replica of the one that Uncle Zach wore around this age. While the original was found and survived a wash, it was just a bit to small. Thanks Grandma Nonie for making the costume! And thanks to Ebay for the vintage Donald Duck.

Jack's favorite activity at the farm was "bus, bus, da-rive". A couple times we had to give another kid a turn at the wheel, but they typically only wanted to drive for a minute or two. Jack had real staying power--we had to drag him away kicking and screaming (literally).
Grandma Martha visited this weekend, and we went to a "farm" outside of LA. Unlike the farm we visited near Boulder a while back, these people had clearly talked to a lawyer, so it wasn't quite as cool. Still, they had a lot of animals. Jack loves animals. His favorite things were "bird, big" (an emu) which he observed "cawwot, eat" (eating a carrot--who knew emus eat carrots). He also enjoyed "goat, brush" and "sheep, pet, gentle".
