It's The Little Things - Mowing the Lawn

While having a house involves a lot more responsibility and maintenance, it also brings a lot of fun.  We now have a lawn that we are responsible for mowing.  Instead of paying for a service, Chris bought a lawn mower and cuts it every week.  The first time he did it, Noah was very interested and watched him the entire time.   My mom bought him a toy lawn mower a while back but we had yet to open it.  So last week when Chris went to mow the lawn again, he opened Noah's as well with the hopes that they would mow together.  Noah loved his toy lawn mower, but would not go near Chris' real one (even when it wasn't on).  Instead, he was perfectly happy to sit on the front step, play with his toy, and point and yell to his daddy as Chris came by.  So while I didn't get a picture of them mowing together side by side like we hoped, I was still able to capture Noah's excitement on this random Thursday evening.

  5. I've never seen someone so happy to mow the lawn! Now if you can only get him that excited about vacuuming and cleaning the bathroom... you've got it made!
