Orchard picking

Last week we headed off to another orchard to pick raspberries and some apples. Tyson enjoyed picking them and only had to be reminded a couple times, not to eat them until they were payed for! It reminded me of picking raspberries from my Grandma Turner's bushes in her backyard! Here's our raspberry loot which I made raspberry jam out of and it is so tasty! I almost like it better than my strawberry one!Camille enjoyed a few herself...Tyson quickly came over and said, "Mom don't take a picture of Camille without me!" So here they both are! Picking apples...he wanted them all!

Full of Hot Air...

My friend came across this event that took place at an Apple Orchard in Council Bluffs where they have a hot air balloon launch and lighting. The weather was perfect and Tyson enjoyed playing with friends. Especially running around inside a balloon that they were blowing air into. (he's in green in the middle) It was a fun little atmosphere as they had music playing while the balloons were filling up. More and more kept blowing up and taking off and you could get so close to them.

At the end, they came back and lit up in different patterns and speeds. It was quite a cool show and a fun activity for a Friday night!

(of course my camera battery died at the very beginning, so thanks Shannon for taking these for me!)

I love Preschool!

I mean...Tyson loves preschool! He started his first day last week and he just looked so cute and grown-up and of course we had to get a picture of the first day of school (he actually let me comb his hair a little). He was so excited and walked right in to find his name/animal on the carpet and he was there waiting for me to pick him up. Its two days a week for 2 and 15 minutes and I'm excited for him to have this time all on his own! It's fun to listen to him tell me all the things he did that day. Today he was the snack helper. We had to bring the snacks in and he got to help pass them out. I love him seeing him enjoy it and I think he'll thrive in this environment!
