Fall Break Fun

Ryan decided to take off Thursday and Friday a few weeks ago while I was on Fall Break, and we had SO much fun! First thing on Thursday, we took Noah to Splash Island in Plainfield. I read Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (for the second time) while Ryan and Noah played in the water. Noah's favorite part is the zero-entry pool that has a waterslide. I bet he went up and down that slide at least 30 times!

We took a short break for lunch from the snack bar - hot dogs, corn chips, nachos, and some drinks - and then back in the pool they went. After more trips around the pool and down the slide, it was time to get dressed, play inside a locker, and head home. We had such a great day together!

On Friday we had lots of fun things planned for Noah! First, we started out with a trip to the mall to return a few things, and then he got to play on their indoor play equipment. For some reason, he loves playing there! I've got to remember that for an upcoming cold day. Then, we stopped by Toys R Us to look at toys and to see if anything got our attention for Christmas ideas. Because we were taking Noah to Toy Story 3 at the dollar theatre after his nap, Ryan wanted to buy him a little Buzz Lightyear action figure. We played with the more expensive, shiny, loud Buzz Lightyears first, so when we bought the $8 use-your-imagination-to-make-the-sounds Buzz, Noah quickly said, "The button's not working!" We tried to explain the idea of making your own sounds and even did some great impressions, but he wasn't impressed. :)

After his nap, we went to the movie theatre. We had taken him to Shrek 3 a few months ago, and he made it for about an hour. This time, though, he seemed much more interested in the movie! I bought a little bowl that he could hold and filled it with popcorn a few times. He had a sippy cup of juice in one cupholder and his Buzz Lightyear in the other one. It was really cute! Noah made it through the whole movie, too. We had so much fun!

On Saturday and Sunday, we did other fun activities, but for the life of me and my pregnant brain, I cannot remember! Whatever it was, we had a great time. I remember thinking at the end of the weekend that it was the perfect Fall Break with my family!
