It's Game Time

Brock is at the age where he constantly needs to be entertained. Without siblings to play with, it leaves me to do the entertaining. Which I LOVE, don't get me wrong. We are kinda worn out with going to parks, coloring, riding bikes, singing songs, reading books, and watching Elmo. He is getting board of all of his toys. So, I was thinking of more ways I could entertain him, when I got an amazing idea. I pulled out every ones friend, the search engine GOOGLE. Yes, I googled games for toddlers. I was amazed how many links pulled up. I wanted to play games that would keep him learning and let his imagination take over. The games I am playing now came from Fisher Price. Click here. There are many online games plus indoor/outdoor games to play. So I tried one........This game is the paper game. You get all kinds of different papers around the house. Computer paper, tin foil, wax paper, wrapping paper, construction paper, plastic wrap etc. Sit your child in a chair and had them one paper at a time. Let them do what they want with it. As you keep handing them paper they can feel the different textures, and nosies it makes. Show them how to fold and crinkle the paper. Brock seriously had a blast. We made paper airplanes, which he thought was the coolest thing ever! Here are some pictures of the fun we had.

These games have been a life saver. It's only 1/2 hour of the day, but he loves game time! I do too.

Utah State Fair

We had a blast this year at the State Fair. We ate yummy food, saw animals, and road some rides. Nothing like seeing things for the first time through kids eyes.

Brock's favorite animal was the cow...MOO!!

He loved the pony ride. The whole time on the ride he said "Nae".

Daddy just had to take him on the Puff-the-magic-dragon roller-coaster. It was his favorite ride. When he got off he said "again". "more". "again".

Daddy also took him on the Helicopter ride. Bye-bye Mommy!

Mommy likes the slow rides. It was fun to see him look out over the fair grounds when we reached the top. He was not scared one bit.

Brock's 1st Sleep-Over

This is Brock's first official sleep-over with Uncle Darrin, Aunt Naleta, and Cousin Nicole. He did not seem to know what was going on at all.

I packed him up with everything he would need. Clothes, diapers & wipes, swim suit, shoes, toys, books, and most important his snacks. We had to lean him against the wall because the back pack weighed more than he did and would pull him down. He loved it though.

Bye, Bye Mommy and Daddy! I will miss you!..NOT!! I think we missed him more than he missed us. While Brock was away, Randy and I ended up painting our home exterior doors Musket Brown. They look awesome. (We should have went to Park City or something). We love Brock very much, but it was nice just to have Randy & I alone. There WILL definitely be a next time.

Thank You Darrin, Naleta & Nicole. We hope you had fun!
