There's no real backstory here, I just liked this picture. I mean, come on.

See how Jason's collar is sticking up on one side? My collars tend to do that as well, and it bugs the heck out of me. Though, I think it looks a little better on him, especially with a little sun flare behind him.

Thus far, Jason does not seem to share my aversion to having a dirty face or dirty hands. This does cause Juliette and I some consternation as we can't, for example, take him to a restaurant without having to change his clothes afterwards. (Or sometimes during.) On the other hand, it may mean he's managed to avoid some of the more eccentric traits that seem to run in my mom's family. I hold out hope, anyway.

(I know I tend to overuse this angle, but, man, it's just so darn cute.)

"Dad, can I climb on this?"

"Yeah, I guess so. Do you need me to pick you up?"

"No, I can do it!"

Jason Appreciates His Teachers

...even if he doesn't really know what "appreciate" means.

Village Grill

Village Grill

As the final capstone to my visit back to college, we went with some friends to our favorite burger joint from back in the day. The burgers and milkshakes were just the way I remembered them. It's nice to know that at least a few things around there are still the same.

Floating

Our daily trips to the pool while we were on vacation seem to have helped Jason overcome the fear he had of being on his back in the water. It's made rinsing his hair a lot easier.

"That's Squirt."

"Oh yeah?"

"Yeah. Squirt is in Finding Nemo."

"Oh, OK."

"He has a daddy. His daddy is Crush."

"That's right. Does he have a mommy?"

"Yeah, he has a mommy."

"What's his mommy's name?"

"His mommy's name is... Beeona."

"Fiona?"

"NO! BEEONA!"

"Oh, OK. That's nice."

"SHE'S BEEONA, DADDY!"

"OK, Jason."

"SHE! IS! BEEONA!"

Into the Blue Again

Into the Blue Again

Last week was the first time that Jason ever really went into the ocean. He's been to the beach many times, and he's even been in up to his ankles in the surf before, but before this trip, he'd never really been out in the water. It was a nice day and the water was calm and warm. He had a blast.

After Nap

After Nap

Jason slept remarkably well on this trip; some of his naps were nearly three hours long. And he mostly woke up in a great mood. I'm not sure whether to attribute that to the fact that one of us was always in the room with him when he woke up or if it was just the Hawaiian atmosphere loosening him up.
