Happy Halloween!

After my cousin Nick's wedding in the Bay Area, Jack and I drove down with my parents to Santa Barbara so we could spend Halloween down there.

I made Jack and his cousin Kendall matching sushi costumes. Kendall is a tuna roll and Jack is a salmon roll each with their own side of ginger and wasabi!

"There, there, Jack, don't cry!"
 At my dad's work the main office decorates for Halloween and all of the staff dress up. People can bring their kids in and they hand out candy. So of course my dad had to bring the grandkids in and dressed up with them too!

Grandpa the sushi chef with his sushi and fireman!
Yum! I love salmon rolls!

Grandma the cat and a hungry Kendall!
That night Jack dressed up in his skeleton costume and made it out to just a few of the neighbors for trick or treating to say hi. No candy for him yet!

2 Months Old!

Our little man is growing up fast! He had his first round of shots at his 2 month doctor visit and was a total trooper!

Let's Go To Work!

Jack and I met Jeff at his office to go out to lunch. He got all dressed up in one of his tie onesies so he could be just like his daddy!

Just because you look good, doesn't always mean you feel good.

"Just Jack!"

Jack is our little boxer. He always has his fists clenched!

Pumpkin Patch

Before leaving Santa Barbara we stopped by Lane Farms Pumpkin Patch with my sister's family to take some pics of the kids.

Pretty ladies!

This will be much easier once they can sit on their own!

Grandma has her arms full!

While we were in Santa Barbara we took a little break from all of the family and went down to the Summerland condo. The weather was gorgeous and we enjoyed some winetasting at Summerland Winery.

With the warm sunshine and ocean breeze naps were in order for the whole family!
You'd never know it was October!

Santa Barbara Visit

Jack took his first visit down to Santa Barbara to meet his extended families. We were a little worried how he would do on the 5 hour drive down but thankfully he was a total champ and slept almost the whole way!

This was the first time that Jack was able to meet my sister, Ashley and her family and they were so excited to meet him! Her son Daniel had been preparing for Jack's arrival by separating all of his toys into piles for "Baby Jack" to play with.
Jack with his cousins on my side: Kendall 5 mos and Daniel 3. Not so easy to get a picture of them together!
Jack and his "Tai Tai" (Great Grandma in Chinese)

Life is exhausting for these two!

Ashley's got her hands full with these two! They are so much fun!

What a great week in Santa Barbara we had! Jack also got to meet his GG (Jeff's Granny) which he just adored as well as Auntie Pam who is always a fan favorite! Sadly I didn't have my camera with me so I can't post any pics from this but I think his Grandy got some great shots of them!

This weekend we took Jack to Oktoberfest in San Francisco. The annual festival is held at one of the old hangers on a pier near the ballpark. We met some of our friends at the festival to enjoy some refreshing German beer, authentic food and of course the Oompah band.
Jack was about the same size of the stein of beer
Ken was willing to share his beer (he may be German but let's wait a few years Ken)
I planned ahead and pumped so that I could partake in the activities as well
A fun outing for the whole family!
