Brody is enjoying Caleb's week at ZOO CAMP.  He's getting tons of my attention, including yesterday morning at the zoo.  Today we played puzzles all morning and then walked to the park with Asher.  Tomorrow we'll picnic at Balboa Park and ride the train and Carousel until Caleb get's out of camp.  It's amazing how two little kids can feel like a vacation after you get used to three.
Caleb prepares to mount "Butterscotch"

Here is Caleb heading off for his first horse riding lesson.  
He worked with Ms. Meg in the ring for about 15 minutes 
and then went on a trail ride together.  His favorite part was 
giving his horse a little "tap tap" with his heal to make her go.  
He did this once a month and a half ago, and then two times yesterday.  
Today he turns five months old.  
What a dreamy little teething angel!

We had a great time at my Dad's lake house 
in Northern California this past week.  
A few highlights were water skiing (from the shore), 
playing in the pool, learning "go fish" with Gramita, 
and visiting a Buffalo Ranch.  

We're happy to be settling in at home again, 
and everyone is almost totally healthy 
(Brody's bug bites turned Staff Infection 
& Caleb's ear infection 
turned swimmer's ear turned ear infection 
are both healing beautifully.)  

Amazingly Asher has stayed healthy through it all.  
And at today's four month check in he weighed in at 18 lbs, 3 oz.
