We had a great Thanksgiving weekend. It was so nice to have Zach home for 4 whole days in a row. Also, his parents have been in town, along with his brother and brother's girlfriend who drove in from San Francisco. So the boys have been having a ball playing with all the family, especially D. The older he gets the more his love of his grandparents shines through, and it's really amazing and heart-warming to watch.
We also had some canine visitors this week. Our friend Sasha was dog-sitting 2 dogs all last week, and both got to visit our house a few times. The boys LOVED the dogs, seriously head over heels. It was one of the first times that I felt a really strong tug at my heartstrings and desire to get a dog ourselves (which was then quickly squelched by remembering about our tiny yard, our unstable lifestyle, and the fact that I already have 1 kid who just left toddlerhood and another who's just entering, I do not need to bring another highly-dependent creature into our home anytime soon).
Anyway, it was very fun to get to hang out with the dogs, and watch the kids enjoy them so much.
Isn't he gorgeous?
He also totally thinks he's a lap dog.
