Another Winner for the City of Ames!

So after flip flopping nap times all winter long, Savannah and I finally found a new groove. The new groove allows us to participate in morning activities that she had been sleeping through - like the City of Ames PLAY GYM! The city opens it's gym every week day morning from 9 - noon and for only a buck you can take your toddler there to run around and play. They fill the gym with cars, blocks, wagons...just about any thing you can think of.. Usually Sav just runs from toy to toy for an hour or so and I sit back on the bleachers and watch. It's a good release for her energy and a good time to learn about sharing stuff. Also a good time for me to sit back.
Here she is driving a boat....
And right before she fell off the teeter totter...
And when she got back on the teeter totter...alone.... she's a tuff cookie!

Thanks City of Ames!

And, we're back, for now

Who am I kidding? It's way to nice to blog! So here's some quick updates:
- Savannah had an ear infection and bronchitis. I think she's over it now for the most part.
- Travis started "Barton's Beach Body Boot Camp". Every week day at 6am he gets up and works out with a dozen other people looking to look good for summer. It's only 4 weeks long - we'll post results.
- I've been working hard at church stuff. Getting missions teams ready, planning a Girl's dinner for this weekend, and hanging out with girls!

Picture time!

So glad t's finally springy outside! But Sav wont take off her rubber boots. The kids into them!

Here's a book I found in the toddler section at the library today. Just sayin.

A little picture from Toddler time at the library. If you havent taken your toddler there, you're missing out.
Grammy and Poppy were here last weekend. Savannah LOOOOVES both of her Grandpas so much!
Yeah, I make her do chores. It's cool.

Lucky us! Only the second time we've ever gone to the Fareway in West Ames and the Weinermobile happened to be there waiting for us!
The mobile itself wasn't too thrilling. They just let us peek in the door and sent us on our way with some hot dog stickers. No whistle or anything.
However, inside Fareway Savannah had her first ride in the car cart! She loved it. I'm considering shopping there every week just because of it. I think she really thought she was driving the entire cart around the store. When we saw people in the isles she said hi and then pounded the "horn" on the wheel yelling "beep beep". It was awesome.
On the way home Sav put the hot dog stickers on her face. She likes hot dogs and stickers so I guess it wasn't so bad that we didn't get a whistle.


Oh the joys of having my parents close. Just one benefit is that Grandpa loves to do outside stuff that the rest of us don't totally enjoy. We took Savannah sledding last weekend. It was soo nice outside. I can't wait for all the sick snow to be gone!

And of course dad and Travis couldn't resist the two man luge after all those hours of the Olympics. It went well as you can see.
