Russell's first snow

We took Russell to Tucson for a few days to visit his grandparents, and low and behold, it snowed! It snowed for 1-2 hours but only a little stuck since the ground was warm.

The desert and the snowed-sprinkled mountains in the background. Certainly a sharp contrast!

At the Wildlife Museum, Russell saw his first giraffe:-)

...and his first Grizzley bear

Three generations all together

The best part of the museum was the fact that Russell could push his own stroller- which he loves to do. Ride anyone?

What a nice way to wake up from a nap

Day at the Park

Today, we spent some time at the park in the sunshine. It was so beautiful today with the crisp, cool air and the bright blue skies. From the park, we could see the East Bay hills topped with a little snow. The boys play well together:-)

Almost 1 Year Old!

Russell loves pullling himself up on our bookcase and any other object he can scale (patio windows, the dishwasher, Mom's legs). How far he's come in the last few months. We hope to have a 'Giraffe' themed birthday for him since his favorite toy is his stuffed yellow giraffe which he sleeps with.

Passport Photo Shoot

We were told by U.S. Immigration on return to the States, that Russell would have to have a passport to travel (internationally) after January 23/07. We attempted to take the photo shoot at home since we could not take him to the post office and have his picture taken without a minor catastrophe! Poor little boy;-)

Christmas in the Bay- before we left for Canada, we had our mini-Christmas first.

Oh! The joy of tearing tissue paper!

Spending quality time with cousin Dawn-Marie- what a nice girl!
