My Generations

Today was much better in Seattle. The temp got up to around 89 which is nothing compared to the 115 that I am used to in AZ. Plus it cooled way down last night and I actually got some sleep (well as much as I can with a big pregnant belly). We went out to Hood Canal to visit my grandparents and my aunt today. They live on the canal which is connected to the pacific ocean so it is salt water. The water was so warm it felt like a bath. We didn't go swimming but we did walk all along the beach and Jackson sat in the water and threw rocks in. He thought this was great because he is always trying to throw stuff in the pool and we won't let him but today he had free range to throw as many rocks as far as he could. He also liked the fact that he got to play in the fountain, my grandpa showed him how to play the organ, and Jack tackled my grandparents fat begal Dexter (who wasn't happy about having a baby tackle him).

He had a great time and it was so nice to see my grandparents who are getting very old. I am really close to them so I try to see them as much as possible but it is hard since I live so far away. I know they won't be around much longer so any time spent with them is cherished time. It is funny too because the older you get the more baby like you become. My grandma had all of Jackson's favorite foods like applesauce, fish crackers, and popciles because that is what she eats now. Sleeping more and eating less. . .84 years apart and they have more in common than they realize.

Then we went to this great pizza restaurant called The Rock where they play rock music and have fun lights. Jack loved this and he even ate the spicey Yellow Brick Road pizza with pepperoni, sausage, onions, and banana peppers. What can I say, the kid has sophisticated taste buds and he knows the good stuff. I even gave him a few sips of root beer. He ended up passing out in my lap by the end of the night. He has been playing so hard since he got here it is no wonder that he sleeps so well at night.
