Henry's Bedtime Routine

Sister wanted to take over bedtime routine duties tonight, so I let her. She "read" (by read, I mean she looked at the pictures and made up a story to go along with them) him 8 stories, then she sang him 4 songs with him facing her with his head on her shoulder and him hugging her (just like he does with mommy & daddy). Then she tucked him in and stroked his head and she sang to him some more. It was all very sweet!

Super Saturday with Henry

Started out with some park & picnic time at a park we have never been to in Faribault.

Then we headed to a barber shop so that Henry could get his second haircut (mommy trimming up above ears & eyes don't count). He wasn't really sure about what was all going on, but he sat there the entire time and did great. He looks like such a little boy and not a baby anymore when his curls are all cut off.

The other big thing for Henry today was that we set up his toddler bed. He slept in it for naptime after mommy had to go up there 3 times to tell him to stay in his bed and go to sleep. But at bedtime, even though it took a while to fall asleep he at least stayed in his bed the whole time.

After the haircut, I took the kids to the candy store to pick out a treat while daddy got his hair cut. They both got Tootsie pops and candy necklaces.

After nap time, it was pool time with our blow up pool. Last year we had the blow up pool out much earlier because it was warmer earlier. Oh well. The community pool, which we have a membership to, open next Sunday. So, we are looking forward to going to "our" pool all summer.

And we ended the day with roasted marshmallows, although Henry didn't want his roasted. And we had a nice long storytime out by the fire before bedtime.

Sister's Rainy Bday Party

Henry thought it was fantastic to play in the park while it was raining. The slides were really like water slides, very slick.

Baby Animal Day @ MHS

The high school FFA sponsors a baby animals day every year in the spring where children from the community and classrooms can come and meet and pet the baby animals. This year there was a couple different kids of goats, piglets, calves, puppies, kittens, ducklings, chicks, & bunnies. Henry loves animals so much, so this was really great for him!

On the morning of Memorial Day, we went to the RAD Zoo to check out their new exhibit that just opened called the "Danger Zone". Lots of new crocs and alligators and also some predator fish.

Beach Time!
