3 Years Ago...

We said "I Do." So we did some fun stuff to celebrate yesterday. My husband had the day off of farming due to all of the rain we have been getting. The weather was looking pretty nice, so we headed out to Falls Park in Sioux Falls.

It is a lovely park full of history. The other wonderful thing that this park contains is the start of a 20 mile bike loop that travels along the rivers and parks that go through Sioux Falls. We have been saying every summer since we moved that we should ride the bike trails in Sioux Falls and now we have finally done it! My husband was extremely proud of me that I made it the whole way, because I am typically not one up for biking I would rather walk if I have a choice. Especially when it is windy and it seems like it is always windy here. But these bike trails are great. The loop allows you to bike without having to cross any busy streets and it is a relatively flat trail. And it is just pretty. We didn't really know how nice of a city Sioux Falls was.

So, even though today my body is begging me not to do too much, I would totally ride these trails again.

He's Rolling!

Gideon has master rolling this week and sometimes, he is not too happy about it... He can go from his back to his belly all on his own. And if you lay him on his belly propped up on his elbows, he will roll over to his back.
He started rolling in his crib at nap time, so that means no more swaddling. Which also means we have to relearn sleeping through the night. He has done two nights swaddle free, which have gone okay. He stirs a few more times during the night, but I only got up once to actually feed him so he will settle back to sleep. So, not too bad and hopefully we get back on track quickly.

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.

Storybook Character Day 2016

Today was Storybook Character Day at Joash's school. I tried to make it easy on myself and encouraged Joash to use one of the costumes we have on hand. So, he picked the chef costume and took the book Sam the Chef.  Notice anything about his face? I didn't have time to take a picture before school and we got a call right around lunch time that Joash had a pretty bad fall on the asphalt at school during recess. He was pretty shook up about, so I went to pick him up early today. He seems pretty much his normal self now, so we are not too worried. And of course, school pictures are on the 31st, so we will have to see how well he has healed by then.
