Happy Fourth of July!

We had such an eventful weekend.
Friday, Mom & Dad stayed home with us and we went to the zoo!
First, we met a new friend, Laura, then we went to see the animals in the zoo. We saw lions and tigers and monkeys and polar bears. We even saw our friend Grayson from daycare with his mom and little brother when we were watching monkeys.
After we saw the animals, we got to ride some of the rides at the zoo. We rode the old cars, the race cars and the train! It was so much fun.
After we got up from naps, it started to storm with thunder and lightning and rain. So, we got to eat pizza in the basement until Angie came! Grandma Diane & Grandpa Mark came to see us, too.
Saturday morning, we got up and drove a long time in Grandma's new truck. We crossed over a big river and pulled into a train station. Grandma gave us railroad hats & bandanas so we fit right in with the train's staff. Our cousins Lauren & Ben were there, so we got to see them, look at trains and even play with a Thomas train table in the train station. Then we got on the train...
We had such a fun ride on the train. Grandma brought us food, so we had a picnic while we rode the train. When we were done eating, we got to walk all over the train and see the mail car, the box car (you could see the rails underneath us through the floor of the boxcar!), the air conditioned luxury car. It was very cool!
When we got home, I took a short nap (Noah didn't sleep) until Ben & Lauren came back to our place to play. We played a little while, then ate and Daddy brought our friend Laura over to play with us.
I told Mom & Dad that she didn't want to play with Laura - I just wanted to go to Cirque with Mom & Dad, but when Laura came up the sidewalk, I gave her a big hug! She played Candyland with us. Noah was tired, so he was naughty and threw a tantrum for Laura but I was good for her. This was the first time we had a babysitter besides Megan or our aunt Angie.
Sunday, went to a farmer's market with Grandma, Angie & Mom while Noah stayed with Dad & Grandpa. We waited a long time for Ben & Lauren to finally come play with us, but when they showed up we didn't have long to play. We had to find clothes to wear and take pictures of all the cousins. We went to Griffin's house and stood in his garden for the pictures.
After we had pictures taken, we all went to eat at the VFW so we could watch airplanes and eat pancakes. Yum!
Unfortunately, Dani, Jason, Ben & Lauren had to go after we ate, but Angie, Grandma & Grandpa hung out with us for a while longer. When they left we played until supper, then we went swimming in our backyard. We swam a short time until our neighbor invited us to play in her pool. She has a BIG POOL! We had so much fun in her big pool. Even her dog Lucy swam with us. :-)
Tuesday night we had our first night of baseball. We had fun. We were so excited to use our baseball gloves! We learned to field the ball, throw it and how to bat. Mommy was late but Daddy got to see us play the whole time. We did very well - we listened to the coaches and let Daddy kick back and watch us play! I even got to run the bases at the end of practice when Noah was resting and drinking water at the end of practice. I'm excited to go back next week.
Wednesday we started LaCrosse practice with Coach Track at daycare. We learned to scoop and throw. I practiced for about 1/2 hour then went to play with my friends. Noah really enjoyed it and played for about an hour until Mike said practice was over.
We're so busy, we'll have to squeeze in a time to learn volleyball so we can play fours with Mommy & Daddy when we get bigger!
We're looking forward to a fun long weekend. Daddy told us a secret: We're going to go get Mommy from work tomorrow and take her to LUNCH! Then when she's done with work, we'll start a long weekend.
Happy Fourth of July!
We'll be hanging out with our friends at Ron & Carol's volleyball court on the fourth.
