Picnic in The Forest......

Today Aunt Jess, Jack and I meet Ryan at school for a picnic lunch on his break from his BIG Associates of Construction Test that he had today. 9 hour test! He's glad to have that done! Any way on Campus there was a little spot with a picnic table in the middle of several Pine Trees. Jack called it the forest he was so excited. He looked for pine cones and gave each of us one and sad that the pine cone was a very special pine cone! So cute!
After lunch Jess and I took Jack to City Park to play he had a blast! We where there for 2 1/2 hours. Then came home for a quick nap and then it was off the Jackson's for dinner with Ryan and Ashley and then Jim and Beth came it was a really nice evening. Until we got home.... It was just Jack and I Ryan stayed to watch Florida Basketball Game. They are in the final 4. Anyway I opened the door and Bella (our cat) ran out door. I couldn't catch her. I turn around and Jack is sitting on the grass crying and saying "My friend Bella's gone!" I told him after story time I would look for her. She was gone until about 5 minutes ago and she came back flew into the house like she missed us. So yeah we have our cat back! But poor Jack was so sad to think she was gone forever. It broke my heart!

Dino Dig.....
Jack has this wonderful sand box at his GaGa's (Grandma Sherry) house that his wonderful Mommy and Daddy put together for him last summer. I moved 16,000lbs of sand or 8 Tons!!! And Daddy put the timbers down to border the sand box! Any way it has been so very nice this last week and while I work in the garden he plays in his sand box.
As he played Monday he found DINOSAUR BONES!!! It was a T-Rex!!! GaGa surprised Jack with them. Before we left Monday I put them back into the sand and then and Tuesday he dug them up again. Its so much fun and as you all know Jack LOVES dinosaurs!!!! Here are a few pictures form his discovery:

Back to 2007:

Ryan gets up at dawn and stands in line at Sullivan's and if you drink a green beer and take a shot of whisky you get a T-shirt! Jack and I got up and had a great breakfast and then left to get a coffee (decaf for me!) and a cocoa for Jack. Then we picked Ryan up at 9:30am and we headed to the St. Patties Day Parade. It was fun but everyone kept getting in our way so Jack couldn't see. So we left early went out to lunch for my cousin Ashley's Birthday at the Dragon Hut it was really good. Then off to home for naps. Well the Jack and Ryan took a nap. I should have. Then back to Old Town to walk around and we met up with Mom and Iain for dinner at the Stone House. That was really good. Now finally here are a few pictures from our day:

So I just got back from dropping Ryan off at the airport for his 2nd interview in Montana. I dropped him off and we said our good byes and back home Jack and I went. I thought for a treat I would take Jack to Sonic for dinner. He was so excited since I took him out of his car seat and had him sit in the front seat to eat! We cleaned up and throw our garbage away and THEN...... My car wouldn't start!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And of course there was no one left eating everyone had gone. SO I had to as a Sonic employee to jump my car. And she did!!!! WAHOO! We got home safe and sound! =) Its 9:08pm and Ryans plane was scheduled to leave at 8:46pm and he just called me and said that his plane is delayed at least an hour if not more depending if they can get the plane fixed! What a night!!!!
