A quick catch-up

A LOT has been going on over the last month.  Well, I guess it's not really a lot...just one really big decision that has lead to a lot of time doing things other than updating this blog.

We're moving.

To Vegas.

In October.  

Yes, I'm sad.  Devastated, actually, to be leaving San Diego.  I am in love with this city.  This is home.  

But, it's a wonderful opportunity for Jordan - he'll be working with our great friends Job & Brandi - and it's bound to be a good thing.

Aaand, that's all I can say about that without getting too crazy-emotional...

Here's Ez at a friend's birthday party.  Naturally, he was attached to one of the toy cars.  He spent all of his time either driving this car around or playing in one of the baby pools or at the water table.  Clearly, the party was a hit with my kid ;-)

 At the zoo...checking out the giant tortoises.

 Look!  Look!  There's elephants and donkeys and a horse over there!

 He's gotten rather possessive over this baby elephant statue at the zoo.  It's HIS, damnit.

Ez giving a kiss to his favorite elephant statue.  Yes, he has a favorite.  Yes, we go to the zoo A LOT.

 When did he turn into such a kid?

The look on his face here kills me.  I adore this kid.

King of the mountain.

Though he loves the gorillas, he was far more interested in my sunglasses than taking a picture with them (and me).

 The obsession continues...

 Yay for gorillas doing laps around their enclosure!

Jordan went to Vegas for the week, so me and Ez have been on our own.  Sunday evening, we went over to a friend's house for some playtime and to watch Hunger Games.  We didn't stay long once the movie started (Ez was a little tired) but rest assured, I'd already watched it 1.5 times ;-)  Netflix came through and I got it on the release date!  Turned out to be a really good movie, and like always, I'm glad I read the book(s) first.  Too much to fit into a movie.  

Anyways...here's a cute picture of Ez and another guest for the screening.  I think they were plotting against us in the little pop-up tent :)

We've been spending every evening since last Wednesday (aside from last Sunday) at the zoo, so I've been a little busy.  I'd like to report though, that I'm getting rather efficient at packing a take-along dinner for Ezra to eat while walking around the zoo :)

Tomorrow is the official 23 Month photos....stay tuned!
