The dog whisperer

Yep, the title just about sums it up. Instead of trying to talk to us, we caught Jaz trying to "talk" to Benji. Its more amusing when Benji whines back because he thinks that Jaz has food, but hoarding some from him... Check it out :)

We made the NEWS!

Seriously, we made the news. While we were out strolling about the Plaza Art Fair, a reporter approached us for a quick interview. Check us out here: Our little bit shows up a sec: 00.50 :)

Kinda Crawling

Sharing a pic of my girls :) Plus 2 videos of Jaz doing kinda crawls on the carpet. She's more schooching than crawling, but I think its close enough! :) Enjoy!

Baby = wonderful business plan

Over the past couple of weeks, I've noticed this interesting phenomenon once whenever we go about town with Jaz... The inexplicable action of giving money to a baby's parents. Happened this one time at a local indian buffet, where the owner came by and gave us a dollar for Jaz with a smile to Yeesin saying "Cannot use to buy handbag for mommy ok?". Then a couple of days ago, on the way back from the Lake @ the Warrensburg dairy queen, an employee stopped by and happily contributed a quarter for Jaz' piggy bank. :)

So, maybe I'm just biased, but I'm thinking that with these 2 data points, I think I can start charging about $0.60 per look @ Jaz to contribute to her savings account... It might turn out to be a good business plan. :)

Happy Labor Day!!!

Happy Labor Day all! Posting from the Lake of the Ozarks! Decided to do a last minute short trip here, bringing Jaz on her first road trip of her life. :) It was about a 4 hr trip East from KC, with one stop @ Columbia, MO to find a diaper changing station, and feed. Other than that, there was a few fussing incidents in the car seat, but we made it to Ozarks all fine @ 7pm last night!

Spent the rest of the day with fun filled activities designed to occupy both the body and check book. :) First up, a quick hike in Ha Ha Tonka State park! With Jaz securely in her carrier, we did a 2 mile hike up some strenous terrain. ;) Jaz was so tired after the hike, she fell asleep in the car right after we strapped her back in her seat, I would think the tiredness was probably due to the stimulation than actually walking!

After a quick lunch, with Jaz snoozing away, we went to our 2nd big destination of the day -> Outlet Malls! Yeesin disappeared from my sight about 2 secs from us entering the COACH store. In fact, the activity in the store kinda reminded me of bees buzzing around. The ladies looked like they were darting from corner to corner admiring the purses, bags, etc and their sweet sweet low prices. Jaz and I decided to let Yeesin and the rest of the professionals shop in peace and found a seat beside the rest of the husbands/boyfriends/drivers and just relaxed.... Capped off the night at Andre's, my favorite restaurant @ the Lake. They had a really interesting Mango Habanero Ice Cream, yep you read right, first sweet, then spicy!

Last stop Sunday mid-morning, was the Seven Springs Winery outside of town. It was a really young winery, only open all of a few months, but their white's weren't too bad. One major complaint was that they had Sangria on their wine tasting menu, which is more of a filler-drink, than a wine-taste... But then again it was really popular with the rest of the wine tasters! Maybe its a Misouri thing? Anyways, we had a nice lunch topped off with half a bottle of their Summer Blend, before we drove back . All in all, it was a great 2 days at the Lake, even with the minor incidents of trying to time Jaz' feedings in between car, and even being so far out in the boonies that our GPS didn't even know where we were??!! Back in KC now, posting Monday morning.

Have a GREAT LABOR day weekend ALL. Here'e a bonus HAPPY picture!
