Dippin’ Dots at the SF Zoo, June 2, 2014, around 12:28 p.m.
From Daddy: Today Grandma and Granddad took care of him while Mommy and I went to work. He enjoyed pancakes and bacon for breakfast and played with them in the morning. Later, they went to the San Francisco Zoo where the grandparent’s favorite part was watching the grizzly bears feed while his favorite part was eating Dippin’ Dots (pictured above). This afternoon, he told me that Granddad got the Dippin’ Dots for him. I asked if he thanked Granddad. He walked over to Granddad, thanked him, hugged him (at my direction), and then held his hand.
