Weekend Update

This past weekend we were very busy doing outdoor activities and enjoying the nice weather before it turned chilly.

On Saturday we went to the Brookfield Zoo with Nonna, Grandpa, Auntie Marie, Auntie Joanie, Jane, Phil, Janelle, Phil, Corey, and Jacob. We had a lot of fun looking at the animals, visiting the Dinosaurs Alive exhibit, walking around, and spending time with family. Grandpa spoiled Joey with a new book, a dinosaur flashlight, and a Nemo grabber toy. The fresh air tired Joey out on the way home, but not before he enjoyed his very last bottle of milk! As of Saturday around 2:30 p.m. Joey became a bottle free baby! Sippy cups or bust...a big milestone for him!

Sunday was our church's outdoor mass and Trifesta, a fest on the church grounds with food, music, and games. We went to the outdoor mass and then stayed a couple of hours for the fest. Auntie Christy and Andrew met us out there too. Joey enjoyed snow cones, bites of Daddy's homemade tortilla, and of course some Cheerios on the lawn as we listened to music. Joey and Andrew went in a big blow up tent like a bouncy that had air blowing balloons everywhere. Andrew was better at catching them than Joey, but they both had a lot of fun. We finished with a train ride! Joey was ready to go until he saw the train. He didn't want to get out once the ride was over.

Finally here are a few pictures from today. Daddy took a couple of pictures of him when he first woke up and then we had to take a few more of Joey in his Purdue gear chilling out on his little couch drinking his milk like a big boy!
