Thanksgiving Weekend at Black Butte

We went to Black Butte for the Thanksgiving weekend. Jake is always happy to arrive and see the toys that we keep there, because it's like having new toys again! I have no idea why he's sticking out his tongue...
Oooh found the swimming pool ball!
Such a cute little space under the stairs for his toys. When we first built the house we had that space carved out for the dog's use -- Tessa the dog's food and water bowls and toys would go under there. Now it's perfect for Jake.
Jake playing with his toy dogs by the window. "Arf! Arf!" they say.
Jake is getting ready to go for a walk. The day before we left for Black Butte I ran to Patagonia to buy this winter suit as the temperatures did not rise above the 30's (F) while we were there! It was in the 20's most of the time, including during the day when we went for walks. Brrrr.
Grandpa, Mike, and Jake ready for a walk, all bundled up.
Jake spent a lot of time reading. Here he is telling Grandpa about the boats.

Oh my gawd, he was sticking it out because it was soooo cute and funny it just had to be done. Hahaha!

Is it just me, or does he look much older in these photos all of a sudden???

BTW, I made it to level 6. Take that, Luigi!
