I may have been defeated in my first match, but my GGma doesn't care. Here she carries me from the ring like a champion.
Next year, I will eat the whole turkey.

Ah yes! Jumping into leaves is fun. But body-slamming is more fun. Look at the stunned look from my dad!

My mom took pictures of us in our Christmas pajamas. This is old hat for my sister, M. After looking at the proofs, she said that I have a lot to learn when it comes to posing for pictures. She's a master!

Well, maybe I can make it another 48 hours. In the meantime, is your house ready for M, Grams?

My face oozes excitement as the airplane approaches for landing.
Really? This is what everyone is so excited about?
Wait wait! No more no more!
Now my faces oozes rice cereal. Yuck!

Whoops! I ran out of steam and my dad carried me home as darkness descended. Wow was it dark!
What a night! The nice lady who gives Highlights Magazines was at it again and oh yes, there was candy too! Break me off a piece of that Kit Kat Bar!

Here my dad tries to show me that there is nothing scary in the pumpkin. Alas, I only have eyes for my beautiful mom who is taking pictures!
Finally the pumpkins were emptied and carved. M drew the faces and then dad cut the pumpkins. Below M is pictured with her creations. It was too cold for me to make an appearence. Oh well!

Ha ha! Other people were proud of me. So proud that they came to visit. Below you can see my SW VA G-Ma along with cousin S. Cousin S's mom also came to congratulate me. It was another big step for me and I appreciate all the visits! You can see below that it was such a big step I fell asleep.
Notice S's outerwear choice....Nice! It's a lead-in for tomorrow's post. I carved pumpkins for the very first time!

First we saw Historic Old Towne San Diego and had lunch at an open air restaurant.
Next we went to Balboa Park and visited the San Diego Plant Zoo. I like animal zoos better!
Finally we went downtown and walked along the shore and visited Seaport Village. What a blast! In the shot below you can see how exceptionally long my dad's arms are in taking this family shot.
The next morning we got up nice and early to fly back to Ohio. In order to keep us happy, my dad said we were on the way for milk shakes. We later discovered the milk shakes were 2000 miles away. What a jokester!

Knott's Berry Farm has a wonderful play area called Camp Snoopy. It was halloween time so everyone was dressed like a pirate. Except of course for me!
One of my favorite rides at Camp Snoopy was the Charlie Brown Speedway. I rode this several times. Here you can see I chose the appropriate car for Grandpa JHC.
The park also had a giant inflatable Snoopy where you could moon bounce in his stomach. Several times throughout the day I would get to this point and then turn around and refuse to go inside.
My brother, JC, quickly tired of my fake-outs with the Snoopy moon bounce and went to sleep. My parents, however, were gullible until the end of the day.
My all time favorite ride, however, was the Rocky Road Truck Company. I got to drive a truck while my mom operated the truck horn. It was fantastically loud and all the ride operators whose shift ended while I was there (over an hour) left looking dazed.
The park closed at 530 and I was driving my truck up until the final bell. Knott's was a lot of fun! Thanks California Grandma and Grandpa.

Stuffed and needing to walk it off, we left the car at Philippe's and hiked up to Griffith Observatory far above LA. In addition to having a huge telescope and a small science museum, it was a location used on "The Bachelorette"!
The views were fantastic. However, I am a bit afraid of heights. Here, my strong papa, holds us tightly with the Hollywood sign just visible in the background.
After spending the afternoon in the flawless 70 degree weather with 0% humidity, we headed down to see the Pacific Ocean. Here both my Dad and I set foot in the Pacific for the first time.
A few waves hit me, however, leaving me looking like this.
My little brother and Mom both made it down to the Santa Monica pier, too.The sun set as we headed back to the car making for a beautiful end to our Friday.
