Happy Birthday Ethan!

On Monday we got to celebrate Ethan's 2nd birthday. First we went to the DeYoung's for some pizza and delicious birthday cake and lots of presents. Then we moved the party on to Crazy Bounce. I thought Jonah might be a little overwhelmed and not really like it... not the case at all! He had a blast!! It probably helped that we pretty much had the place to ourself, but he loved to jump and play in the balls and go through the obstacle course. He liked going up to the top of the slides.. but got kind of nervous going down. Always had a big smile when he got to the bottom though! :) Thanks for inviting us Ethan (well, Rachel) we hope you had a happy birthday!!

Only one more month until MY baby turns 2!!

Down on the farm

This week Grandpa Driy got a barn filled with animals out of the attic for Jonah. It was made for Chris by his grandpa when he was little. Jonah has been having lots of fun with all the tractors, horses, cows and piggies!Here's a random picture my little artist. He loves to color, and has finally stopped trying to eat the crayons all the time! :)

Mommy's Little Monkey

Today we attempted to get Jonah's pictures taken in his monkey costume. Despite the bad experiences our last couple of times getting pictures taken, I really hoped this time would go better since he LOVES to be in his monkey costume. No such luck. He was as happy as could be waiting in the waiting room, but as soon as they called our name and we went into the studio he turned into a different person. Crying, clinging to mommy for dear life, and stealing the ugly little ducks that they use to try and make him laugh. Any suggestions?
Oh well, hopefully we'll get some cute shots of my cute little monkey on halloween!

Crane's Apple Orchard

Today we spent a beautiful Saturday afternoon at Crane's Apple Orchard. Jonah was so excited to go, the whole way there he kept saying "Apples? Apples?" Jonah loved trying to pick the apples off the tree, but he quickly figured out they were kind of hard to get off, so he wanted to take the apples off the ground instead. He liked the "geen apples" so he'd take us on a detour everytime he saw a green one on the ground, he thought he should get them all!
As we were heading back towards the car after picking our apples, Jonah was so hot and tired out from all his running around he just stopped in the middle of the path and laid down!
After picking apples we had to stop by the pie pantry for some donuts and apple cider-YUM!! Jonah has been asking for "more nonuts?" ever since :)

Pumpkin Parade

On Saturday we enjoyed the festivities of Zeeland's 25th Annual Pumpkinfest. Jonah loved the parade! I kind of expected that we would be chasing him all over the place, but he sat good as can be on the curb waving to all the kids on the floats and dancing to the beat of the drums. He loved all the tractors, and called out each one by color. "Blue tractor!! Green tractor!!" Jonah wore his monkey costume to the parade, which kept him nice and warm on the cool fall day, and it also earned him lots of candy from people handing it out in the parade! We will be eating Tootsie Rolls for a month!
