Lisa, Jacob and I took a couple of quick little tours here and there when Jacob needed to run off some energy. The first was out to Castle Island to run and scooter around the old fort.
He wanted Cousin Michelle to have a turn. Yes, he calls me Cousin Michelle. It's very endearing. Until he could remember my name he would beckon me with, "Hey, Mom's cousin!" I love that kid.
Then it was his mom's turn. Lisa was pleased by this picture because she said it let her know her butt wasn't as enormous as she thought it was. I affirmed that her butt was indeed just fine.
The next day we went to find the headwaters of the Charles River. Since the wind wasn't blowing and the sun wasn't making us squint we decided to try some group photos. Jacob actually took this one. No, I did not crop or otherwise alter his efforts. I think he did a terrific job.
He was a little less enthused when asked to stand for a picture. After all we were outside to let him run....
...and we had just been singing Sir Mixalot's "I Like Big Butts." I don't think his qualifies as big but he wanted to make sure we didn't miss it.
Lisa wanted to get a shot of my big butt and Jacob did not want to be left out. Hhhmm, last years "ass stance" at Harvard, this year's big butt at the head waters of the Charles...what is it about Boston that makes me keep turning the other cheek?
