The joy of dirt

Playing in the dirt at the cornfield... and picking up some corn cobs. Must taste to see if edible. Luckily, not deemed edible ;).

Yay for Sweater Weather

Connor has a variety of sweaters that were made for me by my Nana when I was a baby. These are a few of them that he has worn so far this season. The last one is over his halloween costume, he had a Halloween party at his playgroup this morning :).

Connor's Holiday Portraits at Walmart

This one is our Christmas card. :)

Connor is happy to be with Santa :).

This one had fall leaves. Connor was scared of the leaves. They made him cry. So... no leaves.

He did like the pumpkin though.

I am not sure what he is doing, I think he was about to tell us what's what.

He wasn't too thrilled to lie down...

As you can tell. :)

Connor at the fall harvest festival

He really liked petting the sheep and the goats and the calf licking his hand.

However, the mule bit his arm (he was fine just scared) so we left the petting part after that. ;)

Poor little sickie

Matthew has a cold, and now Connor has it too. After a rough night and a lot of waking up and sneezing and coughing, Connor finally had a meltdown this morning. Nothing I could do would make him stop crying. Until... I turned on The Wiggles. Connor kicked and squirmed on my lap 'til he was sitting on the ground in front of the TV, and happily sat and watched while The Wiggles were on. Ah, Playhouse Disney, you should show all Wiggles all the time ;).

This is Connor in his new-to-him flannel PJs that we were given last night from friends with slightly older kids, watching his friends, The Wiggles.

A Streetcar named....

One of the historic F line streetcars. We were on the F line quite often, it took us right to Pier 39.

And then Connor riding the streetcar. Not the best picture but you do what you can taking a picture of someone on your lap. :)

Pigeon stalker

This is Union Square. Connor tried to pet all the pigeons. The pigeons did not cooperate. In fact, they fled as he ran at them giggling.

Sea Lions!

Connor loved to watch the sea lions at Pier 39. There were hundreds of sea lions sunning themselves on the docks. They would jockey for position too, and Connor loved that best of all. One would come up on a dock and try to get into the space another one was in, they would scuffle, and one would get pushed off back into the water. This is illustrated in the bottom two pictures.

More on the Heavenly Beds

The Westin advertises their beds as "Heavenly" and Connor certainly agreed. Here he is taking a nap in the top picture and asleep in the early morning in the bottom picture.

My favorite picture from the whole trip

We just got back from San Francisco in the past hour, and I will post more of our travels and pictures in the next few days.

This, which could have been taken anywhere, is my very favorite picture of the whole trip. Connor waking up Thursday morning.

PS: The beds were "heavenly". Connor agreed.
