Two Boys Two Nights

My great nephews spent the weekend.  It rained all weekend.  It didn’t matter – we still had fun.  All it took was a plan, and patience.

Friday night we went to the store around 9:30 when it was pretty empty.  They had to test the cars to see which ones were the fastest.  Saturday morning we went to the semi-annual Kendall Young Library sale and brought our own bags – and they came away with a bag full of books.  We went to Shopko for Digiorno’s pizza (and it had to be that brand) for lunch.  We had a lesson on what cost $5 – because that is all they got to spend on one toy.  The rest of the day was spent on cooking pizza, reading books and playing on the two iPads in the house.

There is no tv in my house, there is Netflix and we did watch a series on Africa. My friend Becky travels to Africa so we had to make a list of questions to ask her.  In the show, the animals ate poop (yes, really) and the 5 year old wanted to ask Becky if the humans in Africa ate poop too.  I told him no, they probably didn’t.  Becky has assured us they don’t, but they do eat a lot of cornmeal mush (or something like that) and they like meat.  We also saw how giraffes fight over territory and that was fascinating.

Here’s a few pictures from the weekend.  And hey – you’ll see a lot of blog posts this month.  I’m participating in Kelli Bloomquist’s project to post every day in May.  Kelli is the digital mass communications professor at Iowa Central Community College and she’s challenged us to post every day in May.  You’ve been warned!
