Farewell Travis, Lindsay and Leoni. Hello Sheldon!

My friends Lindsay, Travis and Little Leoni are headed out of the country on a BIG adventure. They are off to Quatar where Travis will be teaching English at a University.

Friday night we went to Lindsay's parents house for their farewell party.

Turns out that Sheldon the desert tortoise has quite a following. Lindsay said that some people were there to see them, and some were there to see Sheldon. I thought they were kidding.

Sheldon has quite a hold on people. To be honest I have contemplated going back to see him myself.

Jasper was a little unsure of Sheldon at first, especially when Sheldon starting chasing after him.

Sheldon is non-stop entertainment -- Look, Sheldon's gonna' get you -- Look, Sheldon's eating the lawn -- Look, Sheldon's in his shell. Oh the wonderment from one desert tortoise.

We'll miss you like crazy Travis & Lindsay -- and little Leoni.

Oh, Watermelon!

Saturday evening we treated ourselves to a delicious family dinner at Lucille's Smokehouse BBQ.

We had a gift card for dinner that we have been saving up for something special. What is more special no reason at all?

Jasper was an ANGEL! The last two times we've been out to eat have not been a pleasant experience, so his good behavior was a very welcome surprise.

Lucille's plays mostly BBQ King music, and I think that our little music lover was in some kind of a blues trance. He was super mellow and just kind of swayed back and forth to the music all night.

Once he even stood up in the high chair and swayed back and forth and then performed his signature tap dance routine.

Jasper is usually not a very good eater. The second surprise of the night was that he chowed down. Caesar Salad, Biscuits, Sweet Mashed Potatoes, BBQ chicken and lots of WATERMELON! We even had to order him extra watermelon. Guess what we'll be buying today?
