Introducing Ryan Jamal

On Saturday Jeff and I with my Dad and Stepmom went to visit my new nephew Ryan. He is so cute and tiny! Jack had fun playing with his cousin Mikayla. On the way there we stopped and toured the Yuengling brewery in Pottsville and on the way home we stopped at Cabela's. Jack loves to see the animals and fish there. It was a very busy but fun day.

Friday Night Lights

This past Friday we went to a football game in Horsham. Jack just wanted to be one of the big boys and play with them. He ran around a lot and even tried to tackle a few. Luckily they let him hold the ball a few times.

It feels like fall!!!!

I woke up this morning to a beautiful fall day...only in the high 60's here. I decided to take Jack to the scarecrow festival at Peddler's Village. He rode the carousel, saw lots of interesting scarecrows (my favorite was the Jimmy Buffett scarecrow) and ate a very large pumpkin cookie. The weather was perfect though I'm sure it will be hot again soon.

Jack loves to get down!

Jack loves to dance. He sometimes dances for hours at a time. He loves loud music...everything from country to Lil' Wayne to death metal. He dances to commercials, cell phone rings, even the sound a grocery cart makes on the floor of the supermarket. He's a great carseat dancer too. Sadly, his dancing partner (his aunt Jesse) has gone back to college so he has been dancing a little less lately. Hopefully she'll come home soon for a visit. We miss you Aunt Jess!!

South Philly Block Party

Since we have been back in PA I have rekindled some old friendships from high school. This past Saturday my friend Jenni (who lives in South Philly) invited us to her block party. Jeff was deep sea fishing off the coast of Jersey so he couldn't join us. They closed down the block and had a dunk tank and huge slip and slides for the kids. Jack played in the water and danced to the band. My sister came down with her friend Nick and hung out for a while too.

Jon and Kate!!

This morning I met Jon and Kate Gosselin of Jon and Kate Plus 8 at the Keswick theater! The event was put on by a local church in Abington, PA. They held their ususal Sunday service and then Jon and Kate came out and gave their testimony, answered questions, etc. Not only did I see Jon and Kate IN PERSON I think we may have found a new church to go to! I have been praying that we find a chruch that suits us. Not too big, not too small, great youth group, friendly people, great worship, etc. It seemed to fit everything I've been looking for. I guess we'll see how we like the service next Sunday when Jon and Kate aren't there! Of course I forgot my camera at home....and my cell phone takes horrible pictures. As soon as I figure out how to send the pictures to my computer I will post one. After Jon and Kate we had dinner with our friend Joe. We watched football and ate steak. And to top is all off I have a job interview for what sounds like the most perfect job ever! Nannying for a 13 year old girl, Molly, from 3-6 ever day. The pay is great and I get to bring Jack! No daycare! Pray that everything goes interview is on Tuesday. XXOO

Rainforest Cafe

While in Atlantic City we took Jack to the Rainforest Cafe. He slept through most of the meal and when he woke up his face was priceless! We sat in the elephant section right next to a gigantic fish tank. As you can see from his face below he was quite excited. He didn't know what to look at first.

It's been a while...

It's been so long since my last post! Sorry Ruby! We have had a very busy last three weeks. My parents rented a beach house in Ocean City for ten days. Jack is definitely a beach baby. We spent every day, all day playing in the ocean, meeting new friends, catching crabs, building sand castles and chasing seagulls. He had a ball. Every night we walked on the boardwalk and ate ice cream and rode the merry-go-round. I wish we didn't have to leave! Two days after we got back from the shore our family from Tahoe arrived. Jack and I got to spend 10 days hanging out with our cousins. We spent a day in Philly eating at the Reading Terminal Market and visiting my sister at Jeffersonand two days in the Poconos. The rest of the time we swam in the pool, played at kid's castle, walked around Doylestown, ate lots of water ice and visited with family. I DID NOT want them to leave! I miss all you guys so VERY much. Unfortunately during these past three weeks I neglected to take many pictures. Below are a few of my favorites.
