Noelle dancing with Uncle Derrick. Sooo sweet! At times you can hear her both singing and giggling.

According to Adam this picture is supposed to show how everybody in our family is special. Each colored section is for someone different. When he wanted to write mommy he asked me how to spell it and I almost told him. Then I remembered what his teacher told me about letting him spell things phonetically. I think he actually did a great job on mommy and daddy. I was kinda impressed he put y's on the end, but since he is reading he does know that an 'e' at the end of a word is usually silent. I have wondered all along if me teaching him to read (instead of leaving it to someone qualified) was just screwing him up, I guess not!

We stopped at the Brewery in Estes Park for lunch right before heading back to town. One minute she was eating pizza, then it fell on the ground, then she was out! Of course she woke up when we put her in the car and never did go back to sleep. Yeah, 4 days and only short naps mostly in the car. I guess by this point she was really tired.

The route crossed the Platt River. I was, and still am, amazed at how full it is. Most of my memories are of drought conditions in Colorado, so I just can't get over all this water!!

Noelle enjoys this seat thing at Walnut Hills Park. You sit in it and someone gives you a push and you go around and around. It works really well dependant on how you sit in it. Sitting cross legged worked great for Noelle! I have tried it and couldn't believe how fast it went, plus it's hard to stop when you are done.
Saturday 5/30 - Adam had t-ball practice in the morning, then the kids and I headed over to Arapahoe County Park for the CYBSA season opening event. The most important part of the event was getting team and individual pictures taken. But there was fun stuff for the kids as well. Both Dinger and the Chick-fil-A cow were there. They also had a giant blow up slide and obstacle course. Adam thought both were tons of fun. The slide was really tall, so I kicked off my shoes and took Noelle up since she wanted to try it. When we got to the top she started freaking out, at that point though there was only one way back down. And it was FAST and STEEP. Noelle didn't want to go again (I loved it though and would have happily gone over and over again!).
Adam was "drafted" by the Rays!! In the CYBSA all the teams are named after MLB teams. It's really neat and fun for the kids.
Aren't they adorable!! BTW, Adam is the middle boy with the yellow on his glove. He is just so natural at baseball, look at that stance!
I didn't think much about having left an empty laundry basket in Noelle's room Wednesday night, but she sure did! Maybe if I started letting her sleep all night in these weird and (to me) uncomfortable positions she would quit sleeping that way. But no, every time it happens I move her into her nice comfy bed and put a blanket over her, but not before I take a picture. I could easily make a whole album of pictures of this kid sleeping.
Thursday 6/4 - Even though Wednesday was the last classroom day we had a class picnic to go to for Adam's preschool in the morning. It was at a park we go to all the time, which was really nice. What I was not expecting was for both the am AND pm classes to be there. Since Adam has always been in am the pm classes just don't exist to me. I was very fortunate that A's Nana was with us. She was able to stay with A so I could stay with Noelle. I have to be honest and say I had no clue where Adam even was most of the time, but he is not a child you have to worry about running off without you.We had a great time and it was nice to see everyone one last time. A group of us who have been doing park days on Tuesday's after school do plan on continuing to have play dates over the summer, so that will be nice Noelle being her normal disastrous self managed to face plant off the swing from the highest backward point. She was fine and didn't have a mark on her, of course.
Now we are getting geared up for another busy Saturday. Adam has another game at 9am tomorrow that J will take him to. Noelle and I are headed up north bright and early to go walk in the AHA Heart Walk with Stef and Sheri. I am excited to have Noelle do a girls day with us. Wish us luck for our 3 miles with a toddler and dog in tow!!
