When Blogs Collide

We got to have a fun night out with Cora and her parents last week.

It's weird to be the parents of the big kid.  How did that happen?

After I had bragged about how well-behaved Anthony is when we go out to eat, let's just say he wasn't on his best behavior that night.  But he eventually settled down enough to eat his grilled cheese sandwich.  Cora, on the other hand, was a little lady all through the meal.  She even tried her first pickle!

 "You wouldn't mind if I had just an itsy bitsy bite of that, would you Anthony?"

"Back off my sandwich, kid."

You might know Cora from her blog.  I think it's fun when you read two blogs and then find out the bloggers know each other in real life.  Cora's mom is participating in the "31 for 21" blog challenge, where you post every day in the month of October to celebrate Down syndrome awareness month.  That's impressive!

Flu Shot

Anthony got his annual flu shot this week.  He was very brave and only cried a little. Afterwards, he and Daddy read a story about Elmo going to the doctor.  That made everything all better.

Step, step, JUMP!

Anthony's doing great with walking while holding our hands, but he just won't take this walking thing seriously.  He thinks it's very funny to take 2 steps and then JUMP! 

Step, step, JUMP!

Anthony's Tour of San Francisco

Anthony would like to tell you all about his exciting trip to San Francisco...

Although I am a seasoned traveler, having been to NYC and Colorado, this was my first time having my own seat on the airplane.

I had lots of leg room!

We could see the famous Golden Gate Bridge from the plane.

After we checked into our hotel we took a walk around the beautiful Palace of Fine Arts. I liked the fountain.
We met some swans there.

Then we drove over the Golden Gate Bridge. I liked driving around San Francisco because my car seat was facing frontwards, so I had a much better view than usual of all the trucks on the road.

You may notice that I have my fingers in my mouth in almost all of the pictures of this trip. I think I just may be getting those last few teeth in!

We had dinner just over the bridge in Sausalito.
Pizza and beer at a place right on the water.
The waiter gave us a free dessert for no reason!

Then it was time to head back to our hotel for some shut-eye.
Or not.

The hotel was great because it had a big bed that I got to play on all night long!

The next morning, we went on a bleary-eyed adventure to a place called ILM. I will let Daddy tell you about that here.

...But that wasn't enough excitement for one day. We had ferry tickets to take a ride out to the notorious prison, Alcatraz.

We had a few hours before our ferry was leaving, so we headed to the Piers to walk around and see the sights at Fisherman's Wharf.

I got to have a hot dog and then we got on the boat.

I look scared here but I wasn't.

Alcatraz was very cool. But I will let Daddy give you all the details here.

That night, back on dry land, we had dinner in a diner. I had been to a diner once before, in New York, but that one didn't have a jukebox like this one.

The next day we went to Golden Gate Park. I had fun at the Japanese Garden.

I spent the rest of the time asleep because it was mostly boring. I think there are a bunch of museums and flowers and stuff like that there.

You can't go to San Francisco and not ride the cable car.

So I did!

I liked San Francisco very much, and Mommy and Daddy said I am a very good traveler!
