The Adventure Starts Here: Fri-Yay!

Friday, October 16, 2015


Happy Friday!  This week was kind of bizarre for us.  Chris was off on Monday because of Columbus Day, had a shorter day on Tuesday because of his work picnic (which I think is super weird to have in October!), and he took off today so we could go visit friends this weekend.  This week flew by and I feel like we were going non stop between school, swim, and all the other random stuff we needed to get done.  Hopefully I can feel a little more relaxed and back to our normal schedule next week.  Have a fabulous weekend and enjoy my "Five on Friday"...


This week, Noah had a Harvest Day at preschool.  Technically it was on a day where he doesn't go to school, so they invited his class to come with their parents.  They had a bunch of animals (a sheep, a goat, a baby cow, bunnies, guinea pigs, chicks, chickens, ducks, and a turkey!) from the farm to feed and pet.  Noah wasn't interested in feeding the goats the last time we went to the zoo, but he was really into it this time!  I could tell he was a little nervous, but he "faced his fear" and pet the sheep, the bunnies, and the chicks.  It was so cute to watch him so excited about all the animals!


Since we will be staying with friends this weekend, I've been searching Pinterest for ideas to bring as a hostess gift.  I really like the idea of baking something and using this cute printable :)


I've always loved puzzles and games like Tetris.  I recently found this game 1010 for my iPhone.  It's easy to learn and super fun to get better at.  


Last week was my dad's birthday.  In addition to a few regular gifts, Noah made my dad a gift as well.  I found some letter stickers at Target and made a heart using some painter's tape.  Noah then picked out Papa's favorite colors and painted all over the paper.  I was really happy with how it turned out after I removed all the stickers.  Papa said it was his favorite gift :)


I used to have a "rule" that Noah only got to have a bandaid if there was blood.  Then a few weeks ago, he talked one of us into giving him a few bandaids for no real reason.  He said his legs were hurting, and if I had to guess, he was having growing pains.  Well two weeks later and he is still adamant about having bandaids on his legs.  He had a major meltdown when they fell off at swim class and we couldn't replace them fast enough.  Every time I tell him it's time for a bath or shower he says no because "bandaids hurt".  I have to remind them that it won't hurt his bandaids and if they come off we can get new ones.  We rotate between Bubble Guppies (which we are almost out of and can't find more), Thomas the Train, and Ninja Turtles.  I can't wait until we can get over the bandaid obsession!

I'm linking up with The Farmer's Wife and September Farm for "Oh Hey Friday"!

I'm also linking up with A. Liz Adventures for "Five on Friday".


  1. Aww, I love a petting zoo. H is really to goats right now...why I don't know!

    Have a great weekend!

  2. What is it with kids and band aids? Ha ha! Cam is the same way. Hope you have a great weekend!

  3. I'm strict on the band aids too. We actually have bubble guppy tattoos that Reed won't use because he hates tattoos. If you want to try those to see if Noah will wear that instead of a bandaid, shoot me your address and I'll mail ours to you.

  4. Connor will not wear a band-aid. Even if he truly needs one. After his flu shot last week, he wouldn't let the nurse put one on. Freak out!

  5. Looks like I'm about to get addicted to a new game! Hahaha

  6. I love puzzles too! I'll have to try that game! Sounds like a fun and busy week! Hope it's a great weekend!

  7. The bandaid obsession is too funny! They are pretty cool looking though, I can see why he likes them! And I need to try 1010!

  8. I just love the pictures of Noah with the farm animals! What a sweet heart! Adorable craft for your dad too! Great idea! Have a nice weekend!

  9. Those baby animals are precious! And love that printable. I'm all about hostess gifts!

  10. Mason was the total opposite when he was that age. He was terrified of bandaids. He wouldn't even let the nurse put them on after his shots. Now he randomly asks for them for no reason. lol. The Harvest day at school looks fun! Adorable pictures!!
