We went to Syracuse on a whirlwind (less than 24 hr.) trip this month. Joe had a bike race there, and my friend Jonathan was visiting from England. He hadn't seen my in-laws since our wedding in 2003, so we thought it'd be nice for everyone to get together again, even if only for a short time. These photos were taken at Grandpa Toto's house.
Grandpa Toto's house is loads of fun for Jonas, because it's not quite fully baby-proofed. Here, Jonas is pulling on the antlers of a reindeer, just moments before it fell over. Fortunately, no one got hurt, not even the reindeer.And here we have Jonas trying to open the front door for a fast escape.
When that doesn't work, crawl away from the parents as quickly as possible. While Jonas is walking about 95% now, he'll resort to crawling when the get-away is important.Ooooh, more fun. Let's play with the dials on the stereo. I love listening to James Taylor at a 150 decibels. "I'm asserting myself, Mom. Look at this magical item in my hand.""OK, I'm just kidding. Let's be nice, again."
