This or That Thursday: Bike Riding!

Finally Mr. No is riding his bike!  He told me this morning that he wanted to go to a rail trail and ride his bike today!  I was shocked since he's been fighting riding it since we bought his awesome robot dinosaur bike about a month ago. So found our way to the West Boylston Rail Trail and Mr. No became a bike riding pro in one afternoon.  More importantly, he LOVED it!

he was just sitting on the bike and making H push him for a bit uphill

Simple Things Sunday: Kitty

I so wish that he had drawn this kitty on paper rather than his dry erase board.  I know photos are great for preserving memories (and better than boxes and boxes of artwork) but I would have had the original framed forever.  I guess I'll have to settle for printing out a photo instead and framing that. This is Mr. No's first attempt at really trying to draw a kitty rather than just scribbles.  It came out so cute!!! I love it!

This or That Thursday: Dinosaur Footprints

The Trustees of Reservations have some beautiful sites and some interesting ones.  Dinosaur Footprints in Holyoke was definitely the latter.  It was a very short trail through the trees to the large slabs of rock.  I have to admit that, at first, we weren't very impressed.  Then we really took a good look at the rocks and started finding footprints every where!  There were also supposed to be fossilized fish and plants.  We're pretty sure we found a fish and definitely found some plants.  Mr. No, who is a huge dinosaur lover,  thought it was awesome and was definitely worth the trip.

Then H, of course, decided it was a great idea to take him across the very slippery wet rocks to look for more tracks.  I'm amazed neither of them fell!

Mr. No thought it was amazing to be where dinosaurs actually walked.  I have to admit that we thought it was pretty cool as well!

SImple Things Sunday: Frogs and Puzzles

I took a week off to spend some time with Mr. No before school starts again.  It ended up being about 10 day but, hey, I'm not complaining!  This week Uncle found a cute little frog friend in the yard for Mr. No to play with.  My rule is no free creature may become a pet.  He was allowed to keep him in his habitat for a bit and then had to release him back to his froggy friends and family.  I know he wanted to keep him.

He was actually pretty friendly.  He even let Mr. No pet him a bit.

Then it was time to say goodbye!  Mr. No was sad.  The frog was all ready to go, poor thing.

Mr. No has graduated to big boy puzzles!  He loves them, too.  We bought him his first 65 piece puzzle and he rocked it!  It's amazing what he can do when he's interested.

And, of course, I couldn't resist a few cute little face shots of my handsome little man!  You have to snap them when you can with this guy.

Wordless Wednesday: Mr. No Poses

Well not really posed but didn't hide his face for once and allowed me literally 45 seconds to snap these before he ran off again to chase bugs.
