Joseph had never been to a luxury hotel before, so he jumped at the opportunity to visit Mommy in her fancy surroundings (see last week's airplane post). Also, note that Joseph never visited Mommy on any of her trips while she worked for the federal government--Joseph is quite savvy.
Wanting to make a good first impression, the 4 Seasons rolled out the red carpet for Joseph and upon his arrival, provided him with his own crib, diaper pail, age-appropriate toiletries, and official "I love Palo Alto" teddy bear.
Joseph (who can be seen climbing around in the background of the above photo) was most excited about checking out the view from the floor-to-ceiling windows to see all of the cars on the freeway below.
Joseph also approved of the hotel's drapery, which allowed for twirling and playing, but did not interfere with his view of the passing cars.
After thoroughly inspecting the curtains, and finding them adequate, Joseph then moved on to examine the bathroom. As you can see from the following video, Joseph's inspections are very comprehensive.
(One of my favorite things about Joseph is that he loves to put things on his head and then run into things. He'll do this at home with laundry, plastic bowls, blankets, or paper sacks. He then tries to intentionally run into things. You can tell he's doing it on purpose because if he goes for a while without bumping into something, he'll take a quick peak, align himself towards a wall, and then cover his head again and run full speed until he hits it. I really think he's trying to be funny when does it, because he loves looking for our reactions when he does it.)
Even though he only stayed over one night, Joseph highly recommends staying at the 4 Seasons in Palo Alto.
He also recommends that the next time you're staying some place fancy, go ahead and twirl around in the curtains, put a trash can on your head--you only live once.
