One, Two, Three JUMP!

Noah loves to jump on our bed and we usually let him.  He has made up a new game where either David or I lay down and he jumps over us.  As you can tell by the pictures I don't really trust my son and I am afraid one of us is going to get hurt but so far no injuries and plus it gives us a chance to lay down and play with Noah without doing a thing!!

Daddy's Turn!

(this is probably my favorite)

Mommy and Noah Day

As you all know I stay at home with Noah now and work three mornings a week so it has been an adjustment to be a stay at home mom after being the one that left every morning 5 days a week.  I love being with Noah but I am not very good at the staying home part so Noah and I are taking many adventures in the Siouxland area are challenge usually is to make them FREE adventures.  Here is an adventure we took a couple weeks ago to the Dorothy Pecaut Nature Center.

There were lots of hands on items.

Some live frogs, honey bees and fish.

These are the honey bees:

And a fun little area just to be a kid: block, books, discovery bottles.
It was not a huge place, not a place you could really spend more than an hour at (atleast not for Noah's age).  We did see a live turkey outside in the woods but was gone by the time I got my camera out.  There are trails around the center too.

Popcorn Day

A couple of weekends ago we went down to my parents house spent the night and then enjoyed a local towns Popcorn Day!  We woke up early to go see the tractors in the tractor cruise, had lunch in the park (most of Noah's lunch consisted of cotton candy), enjoyed the parade (giving us more candy) and then dinner at my parent's house before heading home.  It was a beautiful weekend.
