Jake’s visit

May 25th, 2008 § 1

Our one-year-old nephew Jake, child model extraordinaire, recently graced the walls of The Children’s Place in a life-sized posterboard.

Ever so coincidentally, he also managed a solo trip to visit us in Evanston for the day. Ah, what a wondrous day it was.

It started out with the cousins hanging out together on the lawn…

A light game of soccer ensued:

Jake got a piggypack ride from Uncle Andrew. Ah, the giggles…

He even gave Alli’s bike a spin:

Tough to keep a helmet on that boy!

Even almost took a tumble…

Hung out with the neighbors for awhile. Kevin’s also a year old; Jake sure seems big for his age…

Then things got really dangerous as Jake got behind another set of wheels…

Alli sure dug the joy ride, though:

This took so much energy out of them both that we had to go eat:

Jake, of course, ordered the French Toast Flambé:

He was all, I’ll have it on the rocks, please…

Then he chugged a milk chaser:

Finally, we got sick of him whining about being ready for the beach and took him there:

Jake even performed CPR on the girl in blue who keeps stalking him:

Still not satiated, Jake insisted on a brief excursion to Pisa:

Having bought his own set of blue capris in Italy, Jake returned home exhausted from the day’s activities.

Wow, what a day! It was hard to say goodbye. Come visit again soon!

    I think this is my favorite post ever.

    And, he’s really cute. If he needs a coach at $90 an hour, I’m all in.

    Don’t know if you all are as in to HS musical as we are, but one of my longtime students will be opening for Corbin’s (Chad) summer tour. There’s a date in Wheaton. I’ll try to arrange and Harper and her friends meet Corbin date . . .

    So, I’m legit. I could make your nephew a STAR! HA!
