It seems like forever...time to get random!

Wow, I think it's been over 2 weeks since I've written anything. What can I say, life got in the way.

Last time I wrote it was about Squirt getting mutilated. I was gonna write about abandoning them 2 weeks ago...but I was having too much fun :D. It was my annual guys weekend out and my best friend, myself, and a mutual friend were in Chicago getting our geek on.
From there we bid farewell to our mutual friend and my best friend and myself drove from Chicago to South Carolina(ok...technically he drove, it's not my fault he drives a stick) to meet up with my family for a week of vacation(his wife flew in on Tuesday). We had a great week.
Number 1 finally got into the ocean past ankle deep! He was out jumping in the waves and we all had a blast.
Squirt is the toddler without fear. Not only did he take off and swim like crazy in the pool(with floaties, but we were so used to Number 1 being so clingy at that stage it took us by surprise) but he also went way into the ocean. He kept wanting us to let him go so he could swim(he wasn't wearing floaties and we had no intention of putting them on him)! In his words "I like lotion!"
The missus and myself are now addicted to Food Network...thanks best friend...
Fall is my absolute favorite season! I can't wait for summer to be over. Apparently neither can the grocery store. I noticed in this weeks ad they had pumpkin drop cookies at the bakery. I walked in and was strong. I walked right past them(they were conveniently sitting on a table immediately as you walked into the door). As I got closer to the bakery section all I could smell was pumpkin spice, they had a wine display and the label was covered in autumn leaves...I made a u-turn and picked up the cookies...they made me do it!!! I swear!!!
It's Fatherhood Friday so head on over to Dad Blogs and see what's going down.

Sounds like you have had alot of good times in the last few weeks.

My wife and I love Food Network also, great channel no shame in watching it. LOL.

Funny about Squirt because my 2 yr old did the same thing on vacation at the end of July. We put a life jacket on her in the pool and for a day or two she was clingy but by day three she was kicking her legs and getting around the pool all by herself. Great times.

Happy Friday!

Man Oh Man, right there with ya...cannot wait for Summer to end around here ;-) Save me some cookies too?

john said...

my favorite is autumn also. As for the cookies...well, at least you past them the first time, not sure if i

who doesnt love a cookie, or 2 for that matter.

PJ Mullen said...

Love the fall too, but for slightly different reasons :) Glad you guys have a good vacation and good to see you back blogging.

Hey - sounds like a great break Chicago is my favourite place to visit so jealous!

Sounds like you have developed bit of a sado-masochistic streak - watching lots of food network, and then denying your self in the bakery - I wish I had your strength!

You were in Chicago? I wish I would have known. I could have waved to you! (I would never want to interupt guys getting their geek on, but would want to be friendly.)
It sounds like you had a great two weeks! Squirt sounds like an independent type and I'm glad he loved the "lotion."
Fall, too, is my favorite season. I love the cool temperatures and the feeling of being out and about before winter sets in.
Glad to have you back!

I am 100% with you on the seasons. I absolutely love fall. Between the cooling weather, the tasty autumnal treats and the greatest spectator sport on the planet (of course I'm talking about the National...Football...League) it's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year.

It sounds like it is unanimous. Fall rocks. There is so much that I love about the fall that I will have to devote a post to it. Awesome that you were able to have a guys weekend. That sounds like fun. -the other Jason :)

Jason said...

@Rob- yeah had a great time!!

@BellaDaddy- Sorry man, those cookies are gone lol

@John- if it were only a cookie or 2 that would be fine but in my case it was more like a cookie or 8! In for a penny in for a pound(or 3...)

@PJ- LOL yeah, I hope you guys had fun on Sunday!

@Smallprint- don't feel so bad, I weakened lol.

@surprised mom- I was in Chicago and thought about letting you, WM, and Melisa know but I knew I wouldn't have had time to do much. I appreciate the friendly post visit wave though :)

dadrunamok & Devoted Dad- yeppers, fall rocks!!

Melisa with one S said...

I LOVE Food Network.

And, uh, YEAH! I read that you were in Chicago and thought, "Shoot! We missed him!" but I know you were busy. Next time!

Otter Thomas said...

Sounds like you had a fun break. I love the food network too. I think I just love food period.
