This has been a long holiday weekend around here. Today we went to eat breakfast with some friends and then to a bird park. In general, people here LOVE kids! Jacob has learned to milk this for all it's worth. When he is hungry and sees someone with food (I'm talking about strangers at parks!), he walks up close to them and looks at them with big, pleading, friendly eyes. And every time, he scores food. One day some guys in their late teens/young 20s gave Jacob and another 3-year-old friend each a twix bar. Today he got some bugles and 2 pieces of pizza off people. I try to interfere and say, "No, he is fine." But people say, "Oh yes, take it." It's kindof hilarious and very kind, but I think I have finally learned that I need to take food everywhere we go and have some to share. I love that it opens doors to meet people, though! : )
If you want to see the street that leads to our house, here's a little video I took of that a couple weeks ago. My parents had asked to see what our street looks like, so I took it for them. The "seeds" Jacob shows me that he wants to plant are olives off an olive tree.
I hope you enjoyed the little tour!! : )
