4th of July Weekend

We didn't see any fireworks this year, a little bummed but in the long run know that it wasn't worth keeping Noah up and dragging him across town to see them this year.  We will have many more years to celebrate.  We did splash around in the kiddie pool we got Noah.  And can anyone tell me when my baby became a little boy?  Look at the face, and those eyes!
We finally went to the Milwaukee Wiener House here in Sioux City after the Farmers Market on Saturday.  It was fun, very old timey made me think of what a simplier time might have been like.  You know instead of just about anything you can think of on the menu, they had the basics: hot dog, chili dog, hamburger, cheeseburger, soda, pie, chips and all at a good price (cash only).  The guys working there all wore those paper hats that you might see at an old diner.  Hope you enjoy our 'stuffing face' shots!
Noah and I drove down to mom and dads (aka Grandma and Papa's) on Monday and enjoyed lunch and hanging out.  Emily (my older sister) and her husband Rami came up from Kansas City.  And my grandpa was there too!  It was great to see everyone and a change of scenery.  Noah of course when he woke up on Monday morning and I told him we were going to Grandma and Papas the first thing he asked was, 'to ride the tractor?'  Papa didn't get his tractor out but a spin on the lawn mower was just as good for Noah.  You can't tell in the picture but it is raining when Papa took Noah on the lawn mower, he really can't tell his only grandchild no, can he?
Noah seemed to think that Great Grandpa's walker was a pretty good jungle gym as long as Great Grandpa didn't let go!
And we did some cooking in the kitchen this weekend, Noah loves to help us in the kitchen.  Check out my Sweet Elder blog for more pics of Noah helping in the kitchen, that is if you want to.
He does a lot of this when we are cooking.  Noah helped make a meatloaf, shuck corn, snap green beans, bake bread and make a cheesecake this weekend!  Let me just say that we ate well this weekend!
