Everybody was "Kung Foo Fighting"

So I originallytook these pictures today because I realized that baby Jake is getting bigger. This is Jacob next to the first sleeper that fit him as a newborn. Look how much he's grown!!
But after I took these pictures I realized they demonstrate how well our baby does Tai Chi. He is so fascinated with his hands and sometimes moves them very slowly and methodically in front of his face.

He's also a good dancer. "Stop! In the name of love!"

I love this baby!!

116/2 = 58

Jeanna and I went to 'Hole in the Rock' on our first date.
It was in August. It was 116 degrees. Fun, but 116! Ugh!Last month when we were in AZ for the holidays, we decided to go back to 'Hole in the Rock.'

It was the first time back since our first date. It was a nice sunny day, but this time only 58 degrees.

MUCH more pleasant.
Plus we were able to bring Jake along with us this time!

Testing a post from my phone...

Here's a pic of a cute kid

Today I'm missing Butter.
Butter is one of the nicknames I have for Jake. He is called Butter partly because when he was a newborn, and was in need of a new diaper, he smelled like butter. He really did... it was that Movie Theatre Popcorn with Extra Butter kind of butter. Also, whenever we give him a bath in the kitchen sink, he reminds me of a Butterball Turkey. :)
Well, the last couple of days, Butter and his mamma are up in Folsom. They are waiting it out at Amber's place while my parents place is dusty and in disarray while a new kitchen is being put in.
So I'm going through Butter withdrawls. But Jeanna sends me pics every once in awhile from her phone. This was one of them.
It goes without saying, I reeeeally miss Jeanna too. See you guys tomorrow! Love, Dadda/hubby

What was that?

So today I felt my first earthquake. It really wasnt very strong but I thought it was cool. I was in the house eating breakfast. I thought it felt similar to when someone slams the door hard enough to shake the whole house. It only lasted a second but it was definitely noticeable. So atleast I can say I've felt an earthquake after living in California for 2 years.

Here's a link of the details of this little trembler:
