The Overnight One

I got to keep Jif overnight on Friday, whilst his parents went camping to celebrate the beginning of UCLA Law School spring break. Jessi has been very jealous of law school, and has been counting the days until Josh would not talk about homework or writing or the finer points of the law, and would just pay undivided attention to her. So I got Jif, and he was highly entertaining, never cried, and slept, well... like a baby, for lack of a better term.

At sunset, we ran over to the lake to snap some pictures. I took Cambria as baby wrangler, and it was all we could do to keep up with him, as he was determined to run everywhere, and to scare every duck in the neighborhood, and to plunge headlong into the lake. We did manage to keep him from doing that last thing, but most of the photos ended up being of his back as he ran away at full speed. However, I did get a few goodies...
