Jude's Special Day

Last weekend, my sis and I decided to have some special time with just Jude by taking him to the riverwalk while Indigo napped.  Dan stayed home with Indi.

Here he is, hangin' with Gus, waiting for us to be ready to go!

Then I snapped this pic of Jude with Aunt Mi-Mi:

Next we headed into the Jeep.  Top Off.  I-Pod plugged in, with Aunt Mi-Mi picking the [adult, not kids] music.  Good times!

After two previous attempts to find parking, we finally found a parking garage that was not full, and headed down to the riverwalk.  Em took this picture of Jude and me.

We made it!  Here's Jude checking out the scene.

There was a long line for the boat tour, so Em took Jude for a walk while I waited.  One way they passed the time was by taking pics of themselves making silly faces.  Aunt Mi-Mi is so fun... and funny!

The line for the boats ended up moving faster than we expected. Hooray! Jude was so excited to be on the boat!

After the 30 minute boat tour, Aunt Mi-Mi thought Jude deserved some ice cream!

We ended the day by stopping at a riverwalk restaurant and having tableside guacamole and delicious soups.  Jude got a super yummy kid's meal, but who has room after just eating a giant ice cream cone?!

It was a great day!


  1. Can't wait to bring the kids back to the River Walk. I love it.
