There is a new fireman in town! We got Brooks his new favorite toy - his own fire truck and he loves it! He was in it all day yesterday and couldn't get enough. He can get in and out of it himself - what a big boy - and has learned how to honk the horn and turn on the siren. He also loves when daddy pushes him around the house :-)

I took about an hour walk (I needed exercise after the dinner I had the night before) along the river. It was so beautiful and there were hundreds of people out running, walking and playing with their dogs. We met up with our friends, the Brooks' and the Berube's after breakfast to walk through the art festival taking place on sixth street. We had a very good Mexican food lunch and the boys went back to a bar while the gals shopped for a while.
The wedding took place at The Four Seasons Saturday night. The weather was perfect, the ceremony beautiful and the reception was great fun. We always enjoy getting together with our friends, especially those we don't see very often. We sat outside most of the night talking and laughing - good times! Of course we were back in our hotel room by 11:30PM and ready to crash - gosh we are old!!!
It was back home on Sunday so we could see our little guy and the pups. What a fun weekend!

It looks like they had a great time while we were gone.

My mom, Brooks and I took a 4-day trip to the San Francisco area to visit all my friends and get the boys together for the first time. Let me tell you, it was a hoot! This was Brooks' second time on a plane but the first time he was 6 months and non-mobile. The flight was 3 1/2 hours, which is a long time for an adult much less a kid; however, he did GREAT! He slept for an hour, we brought lots of snacks, we read a couple of books, watched a Baby Einstein and walked up and down the isles multiple times. He played with the nice man sitting next to me across the isle and others on the plane who thought he was pretty cute :-)
We arrived in San Francisco on Thursday at 4:30PM (PST) / 6:30 (CST) - this is when Brooks goes to bed at home - rented a car, took 30 minutes to put in the freakin' car seat (not bitter can you tell) and drove into Oakland to stay with Laura, Bart and Tucker Presnell. Laura's mom, Jeanne (Gigi as known by Tucker and now Brooks) came up for the reunion as well. We finally arrived at the Presnell household around 6:30PM (PST) / 8:30PM (CST). I thought for sure Brooks would be cranky and exhausted since he was so off schedule but he was awesome! He stayed up until 8PM (PST) playing with Tucker and getting to know everyone. We immediately gave hugs all the way around, introduced the kiddos and took them upstairs to play on the bed. Tucker is not mobile yet but a pro at sitting up. Brooks on the other-hand, is a crazy child who is everywhere at all times! Tucker sat on the bed smiling while Brooks crawled laps like a crazy person up and down the bed. It was quite amusing to say the least.
