Jack has been helping a lot with chores recently. He will scrub the floor, sweep, wash walls, and so on. His favorite job is to Put Things Where They Go.
You may not have known:
Shoes go in the dryer.
Diaper inserts go in the bathroom.
ALL laundry goes in the hamper.
Dish towels go in the bag of clothes for Goodwill.
Pencils go in the knitting basket.
You'll notice there is actually a pretty good form of logic working here! :)

Neskowin Beach is one of my favorite places in all of Oregon. We got Jack's new car seat yesterday (his Big Boy car seat!!) so we set out for the coast immediately. Well, as soon as nap time hit. It IS a 90 minute drive!Once we got there it was time for Cheetos. :)
I adore this kind of picture of my guys, especially when Jack is looking so grown up. I just can't get enough of them. :)
Proposal Rock is the big feature of this beach. It's kind of an island, except when the tide goes out. We've never been there at the right time, but we finally were today!
Of course, we had to go over and investigate the Rock more thoroughly, since we finally had the chance to.
He kept trying to pick up clumps of sand and getting confused when they crumbled. I guess it was a learning experience....
Jack ultimately reminded us that we were supposed to be going over to kick the Rock and find out about it.
Some nice guy offered to take pictures for us. This was the best one, even though Jack was distracted by a dog. :)
I love how happy he is to spend time with his Daddy. There are very few things that can make a Mommy happier than seeing such a happy child!
This is a great little cafe right next to the beach. We like to stop in there, but we didn't this time because we brought a picnic lunch! We had beef stew and sourdough bread, and were far too busy enjoying it to take any pictures. :)
Okay, here is an after-lunch picture. He just got this cup and loves it because he's very good at using straws. It is Hard Work. You can tell by looking at his eyebrows. :)
That whole trip actually only took about three hours. But wouldn't you know it, we wore the little guy out! This was the view on the way home:

I have been drafted into service by the exhausted woman working on turning 40lbs of tomatoes into sauce. So, here is the account of our picking experiences today:
