Busy Busy!

We have been really busy lately and lots of fun things have been going on.  Below are some pictures of some of the things we have been up to.  It is amazing how much Noah has changed in just a few months.  He Loves to talk...I wonder where he gets that from??  He still sleeps 12-13 hours at night and takes a 2-3 hour nap in the day.  When he is awake he goes nonstop and there is no slowing him down:)  We have sweet girl named Eann watching him this summer while I work and he loves her and she is great with him.  I will be sad when she leaves to go back to school.  We are going to Lost Pines next week for another vacation and then will be home for awhile.  We have had a good summer so far, but are definitely looking forward to some cooler weather! 

Our good friends Blair and Ciri and their kiddos, Payton and Robbie, came for a visit before moving to Canada.  Noah and Payton have the same birthday and had lots of fun swimming together.  They are so cute together.

Andy, Noah and I went to Colorado with my parents and had a great week in Winter Park, CO.  We had an amazing view from our house.  Noah liked to "pose" on the sofa in front of the window. 

 My sweet boys.  Love these guys so much!! 

There are all these really cool musical instruments in Winter Park and Noah loved playing did Gigi!

Noah's first time ever riding up the chair lift to the top of the mountain.  He loved it and he almost fell asleep every time we rode it.  He looks like he might be half asleep in this picture:)

View from the chair lift.

Top of the mountain! 

We had to stop for a little time out at the top of the mountain.  I think he was a little tired:)

We could see our house from the top of the mountain and were waving at the chipmunks down at our house. 

4th of July in Grand Lake, CO.  There was a fireworks ban in Colorado so we watched boats with lights on them...not quite as exciting.  But, there was a great big party and Noah got to dance a lot so that was fun!  Beautiful area.

Noah got to do the zip line in Winter Park and LOVED it.  He was definitely the smallest kiddo doing it, but he is such a daredevil. 

Here is a video from the zip line.

 Aunt Gloria and cousin Ben came in town for a few days and we had lots of fun swimming and playing with toys.

Noah is such a ham and loves lounging in the pool.

Fun day at the Splash Park

Noah and Grace had a fun day at the Splash Park.  They ran around forever playing in the water.  Noah loved having his older cousin there to play with and do what she did.  Gigi and I really enjoyed watching them!

 Sweet Noah always has something to say:)

Noah washing his hair...he wanted to be like Grace!

Basketball Star

Noah loves to play basketball and he is getting better.  He loves playing ball with the goal Gigi and Papa gave him. 

2 Year Stats

Noah finally made it for his two year appointment (just a couple weeks late) today.  He had to get a couple of shots which was no fun at all!  He did great though.  He weighs 31 lbs which is the 80th percentile and is 36.5 inches tall which is the 85th percentile.  She said his verbal skills are great and all is well.  So thankful for a happy and healthy 2 year old.  Now, remind me of that when he is having one his 2 year tantrums:)  He has so much personality and keeps me busy.  I love this kid more than anything and cannot believe two years have already gone by. 

Here are some pictures from his MDO school year.  He has the best teachers...Miss Dawn and Miss Marsha!  We have been so blessed to have them as his teachers.  They made us a CD with pictures from throughout the school year and I have attached some below.  Looks like he had a lot of fun this year!  I cannot believe his last day is tomorrow.  We are blessed to have a college student take care of him this summer.  She is coming home from MIT this weekend and starts next week.  Hopefully she can teach Noah how to get into MIT! 

Disclaimer: the pictures below are in no particular order and you can tell some are from the beginning of the school year. 

 Noah loved getting to see Grace at school!

 Noah loved being in the same class as his cousin, Cooper.

 Noah and cousin Sophie having a sweet moment together.  He loved having his cousins in his class.

This is Noah on his first day of class in, has he changed!  He is growing up too fast!

Noah's 2nd Birthday Party

We had a great time at Noah's 2nd birthday party today!  The weather was GORGEOUS!  I was so afraid it was going to rain, but it didn't.  We went to Owen's Spring Creek Farm in Richardson and Noah loved feeding the animals, the hay ride and eating watermelon.  He also loved having family and friends there to celebrate with him.  It was such a special day. 

 The table of yummies.  We had cake, watermelon, strawberries, popcorn, paches and apples.  We also had special gluten free cookies:)

 The great cake made by Hands on Design!

 The drink table.  Mason jars with burlap tide around them and red and white straws. 

 Party favors with suckers, tattoos, duckies and blowers all in a farm theme.

 Fun hay ride!  We had great weather!

 All the kids:)

 Love my family!  Best parents and brother a girl could ask for.
