I'm a pout-pout fish

I haven't felt like blogging at all.

There's a book that is our favorite called "Pout Pout Fish" and the main line is,
"I'm a pout-pout fish with a pout-pout-face
so I'll spread the dreary-wearies all over the place.
Blub
Bluuuuubbbb
Bluuuuuuuuuuuuuuubbbbb"

That's pretty much why I haven't blogged because I feel like the pout pout fish. So what do I need to do since I feel that way? Talk about what things I'm grateful for!

Saturday during the day was an awesome girls' day. Me, mom, Erica, and Fifi left our kids (except one month old Leo) and went to City Creek and to the Conference Center to watch the General Relief Society broadcast. We followed the conference with a Blue Lemon dinner (always a favorite) and got home around 10. It was a blast and I really enjoyed myself. It must have been Mark's lucky day because not only did I forget my wallet, but Noah slept for him almost 4 hours while I was gone. Score! He has NEVER done that for me. And I NEVER forget my wallet. Lucky lucky day. My favorite message of the night was about trials and how sometimes Heavenly Father allows hard things to happen because he wants to make us into "magnificent temples", just as the Provo Tabernacle was burned all inside but is now being turned into a Temple. That really touched me.

Noah is doing amazing. The last infection he had was minor and it was on the 24th of July. This is the longest healthy streak since last September. I can honestly say that we are openly and inwardly grateful for this every single day. We don't take health for granted around here and I hope it stays that way!

I've been off the medication Celexa (a mild dose for depression) for almost three weeks now and it's been a much easier transition than I thought it would be. I went on it on my birthday this year, so it's been...9 months of being on it. I think it helped and when I tried going off it a couple months ago my body chemistry was like "hoooold up..." and I was all weepy and terrible to Mark so I went back on it. But this time around it's been really easy. The only thing is I'm not as numbed like I was before so I'm just emotional, as in, I cried ALL DAY LONG on Sunday for strangers' testimonies and even getting thoughts of kind acts or inspirational stories or seeing old people and babies makes me get teary-eyed and I have to consciously get my act together because SERIOUSLY?! Don't get me started on birth stories. Weeping. (I haven't been super open about this topic in my life but if you have questions, I'm so happy to answer them. I think medication is a blessing and I'm so glad I bit the bullet and got on something because sometimes we just need a little boost and can't do it on our own.)

We are living at my parents' house for free. That is A HUGE BLESSING. It's hard too, but the benefits outweigh the annoying things most days so we are grateful. We live in clutter. Boxes are stacked all around is and it has been like this for almost 6 months now. My heart hurts that I don't have a place to decorate for fall or Christmas but I just have to keep thinking, "it will all be worth it, it will all be worth it!" Who knows how long we will still be here so...I'll just assume it will be another 5 months or so. Heck, let's make it an even 6 and then if it's sooner than that, I'll be pumped.

My new found love of Pilates and Barre classes makes me so excited to go to the gym now. I just keep waiting for the desire to diet to kick in, but that hasn't happened. Unfortunately you need both to see any changes, and that just hasn't happened for me yet. I need to get more disciplined. Anyone out there have advice for a food-loving...obsessed...person like me? Oh and Noah LOVES the "Child Watch" (we just call it daycare) and looks forward to that the 2-4 days a week that we go. I'm so grateful for that. It makes working out a lot easier, but gosh dang it that hour goes by waytooquickly.

I just have to realize that I have to decide to be happy NOW. Not, "when we get a house..." or "when I can lose 10 pounds..." or "when I can dress like a million bucks..." or "when I get my nails and hair done..."
It has to be NOW! One thing I have gotten a lot better at lately is enjoying Noah each day and really loving the opportunity that I have to be home with him and we just have a ball together. When I'm in the "mom zone" with him, nothing else matters and I have to occasionally remind myself to toss the phone aside but man he's the cutest! I just smother him every day and I am already jealous of the future girlfriends and spouse that he'll one day have because I won't get to smother him like I do now. I guess I'd better get back to that.

But first I have to mention (which he hates) MARK and how much I love and appreciate him too. That's as far as I'll go or else I get in trouble.

Sweet dreams. Hopefully next time I'm a bit more interesting and have some pho-toes.









Elder Clark!

It's been quite awhile since the Clark family has sent a missionary off. Let's just say...

SPOKANE IS SO LUCKY TO GET THIS GUY!

Apparently a shark bit off half of my lower extremities.

Here was an impromptu photo shoot with the boys. Austin was getting his missionary pictures done and we were all there for... moral support? I guess? and decided to throw on these ties and take off their shirts for a nephews picture. Hopefully it's not perceived as too weird. I think it's adorable.

This is THE girl he left back home. 

We had lunch at the Blue Lemon after a temple session together one morning.



Noah loves his Uncle "Au-tin"

It was a tearful but HAPPY goodbye as we drove him two miles to the MTC on August 28th. We miss him but would much rather he be there than here! He's doing so so well and I'm so proud of his example to his four nephews (five in March!). 
Return with Honor, Elder! The Church is true and we are so excited that he gets to share that message and news with the people of Washington.

Oh Philadelphia, how we will miss you!





Highlights:
My little brother Austin opening his mission call! Spokane, Washington, English speaking! Leaves August 28th. Soooo proud of him!
Going to the Adventure Aquarium in New Jersey
Going to the Please Touch museum in Philly
Going to the Philadelphia Zoo
Barbecuing and swimming at the country club pool
Spending time with all of our family

My parents and Austin are driving cross-country as I type this because they are selling their beautiful home in Wayne and coming back to live here in Provo. We are excited to have them so close...(upstairs....!).

I'm so glad that we had one last trip to PA to visit. We loved visiting them there and having ties to the east coast, but that chapter has closed and now we are on to one of the busiest months on record! My parents moving back on the 10th, randomly teaching Relief Society at church on the 11th, Nephew Nico's birthday party, Mark's Step-dad's 60th birthday party on the 21st, A new nephew being born on the 27th, Austin leaving on the 28th, Erica and Robbie moving back on the 20th, and okay probably nothing else but to me that feels so busy. 

August!!!! Ahhh!!


Well, he found exactly what he wanted. And got it all over my freshly vacuumed floor, which doesn't happen often enough.

Oh Noah, I love you so much.

A few weeks ago, we met up with our great friends the Richards to eat lunch at Moochies. And that restaurant deserves its own blog post from me since I have been obsessed with it for the last little while. Four words: Philly Cheesesteak. JalapeƱo sauce. After we ate, we thought we'd find something else to do in the big S-L-C since we drove alll the way up there from P-town.

As it turns out, the Hogle Zoo is literally up the street from Moochies. We're always up for a good zoo visit since Noah thinks he's a tiger or a pig depending on the day and usually fits right in to the zoo scene. I took a lot of depressing photos of the Gorilla's quarters and didn't want to post them. They literally had garbage in their "cells." Toilet paper, torn up cardboard, half of a plastic swimming pool...the place just looked terrible. It was crazy! I should have talked to someone about it. I'm mad that I didn't. We had fun nonetheless and will probably go back again since the new African Safari exhibit is open now...or so I've heard....

The question of TV



Luckily this kid likes to read books as much as he loves to watch his shows, or else we'd be in trouble! He concentrates really hard on them, and recently he started responding to shows like Dora where the characters ask the audience questions...(I'm really good at justifying this frowned-upon behavior if you can't tell!)

As long as we are spending more time playing in and outside, I'm fine with an hour or mayyybe two of TV a day. I've talked about this a few times before on this blog, and now that the weather is nice and Noah feels well most of the time, we have found a more healthy balance. I do what I can to watch with him and laugh with him so that the TV doesn't function as a babysitter. Mark does an even better job than I do in this matter. He is more likely to turn on a show, but he is also more likely to sit with Noah and sing along with him. Mark has every theme song and episode song memorized. Okay, probably an exaggeration, but he gets just as excited about certain episodes as Noah does. 

Noah would much rather be out and about rather than in front of the TV anyway unless he doesn't feel well. That's one of the first signs that I know he's not feeling the best--he whines and whines and whines until I turn on something. This past winter was the WORST when he just felt like crap all the time and TV was a major source of comfort and distraction for him. 

I purposefully don't have Netflix or YouTube on my phone apps so that he'll play with his education apps, which he loves! He's our little techie. Mark's phone has all the good stuff on it, yet another reason he's the favorite parent! Can you tell I have always felt uneasy about him watching so much TV? haha!... a whole blog post about this...
I know it's not recommended before the age of 2 by the AAP. What do you guys think? Is TV okay? Under what conditions? 


18 months old update


Noah! You turned 18 months old a month ago! I'm late posting always.

On the actual day, you and I had a little date where we played on the playground and then got a treat to share at Cupcake Chic. I want to always celebrate your half birthday, especially since your real birthday is just 5 days before Christmas (sorry about that...)!

We went to your well baby check up today.
You are 34 inches long- 84th percentile
Your head is 19.5 inches- 92nd percentile (record for you)
You weigh 25.57 lbs- 62nd percentile

You have taken off developmentally these past few weeks. You talk more and more every day and we love it.

You have only had ONE colon infection since May. We are eternally grateful. You've been healthy, which means you've been happy, which means your dad and I have been OVER THE MOON! We are only as happy as you are bud. That's how parents are. We love you so much.

Recent words:
Bug, puh-kin (pumpkin), itza (pizza), tree, pig, onk (oink), paw-co (popcorn), tuh-tow (turtle), kick, pool, up, choo-choo (train), burr (bird), turk (truck), me (pointing to himself), bidge (bridge), cookie, book, huck (hug), hi, bye, tick-oh (tickle), etc.

Funny things you do:

  • Anytime we are outside exploring, you put your hand up to your ear when we hear a noise. It's the cutest.
  • You can sign the whole "Popcorn Popping" primary song with me. 
  • You throw pretty impressive temper tantrums. You pretend to fall flat on your belly and face and then fake cry. It's almost convincing. We have to try really hard not to laugh every time you do it.
  • Your favorite activities are still "bird hunting", throwing rocks into the river, going down the slide, dunking the basketball with dad, flower smelling/picking, watching Olivia the pig, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse (you're getting tired of Backyardigans), and Dora the Explorer, and Special Agent Oso.
  • You could eat tomatoes and raisins every meal.
  • You don't use the bottle anymore, and since then you haven't wanted milk.
  • You can't eat wheat bread because it makes your poo terribly sandy-like
  • You still like to show us all your body parts when we ask you to.
  • You think it's funny when you feed me and dad.
  • When you want something, we can pretty much understand what it is that you want now. It's so nice!
  • You still love to do puzzles on my phone and real puzzles at home too. 
  • You can get into Netflix, YouTube, and all your more educational apps on either of our phones without any help! Crazy dude!
  • You now fold your arms and say "Amen" with us at the end of prayers. You don't keep your arms folded the whole prayer yet, but you're doing great.
  • You're not very big into giving kisses, but when you do, it's so fun. You are big into giving "hucks" though and you wrap your arms really tight around us. We love it.
  • You are used to us tickling you all the time, and now you do it right back to us! You walk up and say, "tick-oh, tick-oh, tick-oh" while putting your fingers on us. We all have a good time.
  • You love going to the library and picking out five or six books each time. You're really into pigs, roosters, and fish right now. Every day you insist that I read at least 10 or 15 books to you! You just keep bringing them over to me and plop yourself down on my lap. I love it. Your favorite books are, "A Mother for Choco", "The Story of Farts", "I Was So Mad", "Pout Pout Fish", "One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish", and any of our Baby Animal books series.
We Love you Noah! You're TWO in LESS THAN 5 MONTHS! 

Stacker


I walked into the kitchen area and saw Noah working on this. I'm so glad I was able to snatch my phone in time for these. I was pretty impressed, probably because I'm his mom and I think most things he does is kinda neat. He was pretty proud of himself too. 

I think the pictures are pretty self-explanatory. This was Noah's first trip on the boat this summer. He wasn't a happy guy for about 10 minutes, until he wore himself out enough to totally zonk out.

Love this kid!



Rocks


I feel like every little boy goes through a rock stage. "Rock" is one of the first words that Noah said and that trend is still popular around here. He will try to be sneaky and take rocks out of neighbors' yards and put them in his car seat and toys. He makes piles and enjoys "counting" them by pointing at each individual one making sounds for each, like "psh, tck, shi, meem", etc. It's too cute. Or he will take one by one and put them in my hands to count or make another pile a foot away from the original pile. It's so fun to observe his brain process information.

I take him to the pool to swim, but what does he run towards?
Rocks.
I take him outside to swing on the swing, but where does he run to?
The rocks.
After he's done playing basketball, where does he run after?
The rocks and gravel in the middle of the road.
Anytime there is a body of water nearby, Noah is the first to chuck something into the pool, be it 
rocks,
or pretty much anything he can actively throw in and get a splash out of. 

"Sploosh" is the sound that Noah says for "splash"...

He also loves LOVES ducks and fish..."...a DUCK! a DUCK!" and "SHI-SHI'S!" 
that looks like a bad word tee hee

Temple visits


On a chillier day in the late spring/early summer, we took a stroll to the Provo Temple to look around the pretty flowers and fountains (two of Noah's favorite things). 


Later in the summer, we headed up to Salt Lake to walk around Temple Square and City Creek. Noah absolutely loved it. He thought the temple was pretty funny?
I enjoyed dipping him and kissing him--a daily ritual around here. And it's not just me! Mark kisses him hundreds of times too. Noah is just a kissable guy! It's funny how things change once you have a baby in your life...in the best ways possible! 
*sigh....*
I won't go there, sorry. I'm extra mush writing tonight because I'm listening to church music on Pandora.
It's making me all weepy.
I don't really like it. It's throwing off my sarcasm.
Anywho.


Mark and I are celebrating our 4th wedding anniversary in August! Every time we go to Salt Lake we talk and reflect on that very fun and special day. 
Enough...ENOUGH of the cheese.

*Please excuse the terrible quality of these pictures! All iPhone...(on this whole blog...)

Now I'm being the baby









These guys are best friends to the core. No one believes me when I say that he's a daddy's boy, but then they see Noah's reaction when Mark enters the room and there is no face more bright than his! He worships his dad, and I have these love-hate feelings about it. 
He probably senses that most some days I seem to be counting down the minutes until nap time!

"Enjoy it!" people say.
"You get more free time that way...take advantage of it!" exclaim friends and family.

Well ya know what?! It's been 7 months of this daddy's boy nonsense and I want to be wanted for once! I bet if I was at work all day, Noah would be pumped about me all the time too. Instead I'm the one he is "stuck" with all day long. BOo Hoo!!!! 
One day, Noah, I will get you! You'll choose me over dad.
And you'd better believe that 
I. Will. Rejoice.


Noah, lover of all things floral.



Oh my goodness, can this guy get any sweeter?! Earlier in the summer when all the dandelions were in bloom, this sweetheart would go outside with his dad and pick allll the dandelions out of the neighborhood and bring them back to me. We'd smell each.and.every.one. He'd inhale "......" and then let out a "MMMMmmmm!!!..." while exhaling. I hope he never stops doing this. He still does it, and it never gets old! He doesn't only do it to dandelions, but leaves too. 

To Noah: Dude, you'd better always pick me some flowers and sniff them! It's a small price to pay for all those thousands of stinky diapers I have changed of yours...

Up to no good


For months and months, Noah would beg and scream for my wallet. It was his favorite thing to do anytime my purse came with us somewhere...
I eventually smartened up and abandoned my Hobo wallet and converted to a smaller purse where I can only fit my cards, hand sanitizer, and roll up a diaper if I need to. 
It has saved a lot of hassle and cleaning up, and has especially lightened my stress level over the fear of losing one of my credit cards! He still likes to take his cards (empty gift cards from different stores...my grandma's idea!) in and out of his wallet (again, a gift from my grandma...genius!). He's too cute though. I could never say no and that was the problem!
I just don't want to forget the funny little things that Noah does. He's growing up too fast!

Sunday, July 28, 2013


Remember when Mark got into that program in San Francisco back in May? Well, he went for a DAY, and came right back the next day. We decided that the investment wouldn't be worth it and that he already knew enough that the program would've been partially redundant. He would've been gone for 9 weeks, with only two weeks that Noah and I would be able to fly out and visit him. The program was thousands of dollars, and pretty intense, which would have been worth it had he needed it. A year ago, sure, it would've helped him. But he has spent a lot of time teaching himself in the last year. As soon as he got home, resumes and applications started going out...

With that said...
The last two months have been probably some of my favorite, yet stressful months in my whole life. Interviews started filling up a couple days out of the week and Mark spent a lot of time preparing for these intense interviews. On like the 5th, 6th, or 100th interview with a company called Property Solutions in Lehi, he was hired! We were so happy but I'm sad at the same time. We have had Mark home for more time during the day, Noah is a TOTAL daddy's boy, and I don't remember having this much bonding time with Mark ever! 

Even though he wouldn't stay at home from the hours of like 10-5, it was good to know that usually he wasn't tied down and could run to my rescue...did I abuse that, you ask? You will never know. He worked really hard during the day at BYU (computer programming and all that gibberish) on his own--I could NEVER get away with that. I'd end up social networking for 5 or 10 hours (sad, sad truth).

Side note: I was a really good student in the classroom, Mark, on the other hand, is a good self-learner. We are opposite in that way. And I'm the one with the teaching degree...those who can't learn, teach I guess?? I seriously look up to him for teaching himself so many cool things all the time. His entrepreneurial tendencies go against my traditional mentality (go to school, get straight A's, work your way up the corporate ladder, etc.) but this job definitely has room to exercise those entrepreneurial neurons in his big brain while still satisfying my need for the wonderful "B" word...

BENEFITS.
*Angels sing in the most angelic voice you can ever imagine hearing*

He starts on Tuesday, and...
we are going to miss him.
Like, seriously miss him. 

I didn't know if I would be the type of wife who would be like..."OKAY already, get out of the house so that I can do my stay-at-home-mom/wife thing while you get your work on away from home!" 

It turns out, I really like my guy!

He is the BEST dad in the whole entire world. I think I slept in until past 8 a.m. like 6/7 days of the week. He'd get up with Noah and feed him and play until I got my big butt out of bed. The mornings are not good to me. SOOO... 
back to the zombie mom mornings that I'm so.good.at. Cheerful morning mom--who dat?! I've made a commitment to get to bed by 11 every night. Parting of the Red Sea, what?? Yeah, this will be just as miraculous.

I'm so glad that we have a plan now, and that we will be able to do what I still can't believe we are able to do...because aren't I still a baby? 
I'm not old enough to...
house hunt!

26.2!

Yay! I'm alive! 

This is what 3 a.m. looks like.
I only got like 4 hours of sleep. I'm terrrrible with alarms (since I haven't used one since the babe was born...) and wake up every hour justtobesure I don't sleep through. 
Not to mention I was nervous as all heckkk.

Corey and her husband came to get me at 3:45 a.m. to head down to south Provo at the bus loading area. 
We had a haunted bus. Or at least we thought so. 
I happened to be that the man driving was probably 95. We rode on the wrong side of the road a few times. It was eventful!


Here we are after using the "facilities." Corey accidentally brought her phone, but I'm glad since we got a couple of pictures pre-race.

We were right in front of the 4:25 pacer but stayed with the 4:15 pacer guy most of the way. His name is Adrian and he was a lifesaver! He knew the course and would give us encouraging tips along the way. He really helped keep us motivated and stay at a challenging, yet doable pace. We owe it to him! 

So you hear runners use the term "hit the wall"--well, in the other two marathons in St. George that I had done (2006 & 2008 when I was much skinnier), I couldn't remember feeling that terrible. I mean, a marathon is long and it's challenging, but I always finished feeling pretty good (maybe my memory has gotten a little hazy??). 

Anyway, this marathon was a different story! I felt great...UNTIL...mile 23. Those last 3-4 miles were killer! Sheesh! I couldn't drink any more Powerade for fear of vomiting and I had already peed my pants 10 miles earlier (thank you, 9.5 pound Noah coming out of my vajayjay). The fact that there were NO porta potties along the way didn't matter (quite the controversy). I didn't need another bodily fluid on my person. But when I got that [huge] medal around my neck, I was just happy! 




Here we are just after the finish (shadowy picture by Mark, thank you dear). My face was on fire (it was hot). We were both really feelin' it...my body was just spent but I was jittery after having two caffeinated gels. Corey had some crazy leg pain going on. I was just pumped to be done and to have finished a full 15-20 minutes faster than I had predicted! My time was 4:16:22, Corey 4:16:18. Corey zoomed ahead of me at the end and I was seriously impressed. She was dying to be done too! And I just read that I got 25th place in my age group (19-24). I'm pretty much professional.
HA! 
But I'm pumped that I was 25th because that's my lucky number. Really, it is. Birthday 01-25-89, my mom was 25 when she had me, our anniversary is 08-25-09...It's lucky, people. 

A sweaty mom. He didn't recognize me when he first saw me!


And here's the guy who seriously made this marathon possible for me. Training for this thing meant more to me than most people realize. After a really hard year of battling depression and nursing a sick baby all the time, I really needed to accomplish something for myself. Mark was behind me 110%. He never made me feel guilty or selfish for leaving him all the time at night to watch Noah so that I could get my runs in. He was my rock and I truly couldn't have done it without him! 

Mark's grandpa Huber brought me a Jamba Juice at the end of the race. He's the sweetest. Noah wanted it more than I did--my tummy was a bit queasy!


That's Grandpa Huber on the left, mother-in-law Kerri and bro-in-law Ryan on my right. Kerri and Ryan played a small but significant part in my training as well! They would come over early on Saturday mornings or sometimes in the middle of the day so that I could get a run in here or there. It meant a lot to me that they were there to celebrate with me!

My brother and his wife and their two (almost three) kids were there to greet me too. 
Estefi made this awesome sign for me and created an appropriate hash tag just for me: #bouncedatbooty. 
Indeed, this booty bounced for 26.2 miles,
and I was ready for a movie and a massage.

Mother's Day

Mark made Mother's Day my favorite holiday!!! Yes, that's how selfish I am. But I love that Noah is older now and can do things....like paint beautiful cards for all the mothers in his life! 





I know I'm his mother and I am biased, but I think they look awesome and he did a great job! He really got into it!

Mark wrote two of the sweetest notes that I'd ever gotten. We pick out funny cards for each other and the two that he got were seriously impressive! I wish I could post them but the ooey gooey mushy stuff inside of them would make anyone (other than myself) throw up :)

Chocolate dipped strawberries from Costco...yummm


 Let's see if I can get the name of these right. Banana almond cream cheese stuffed Frosted Flake-crusted French toast with more bananas, whipped cream, and cinnamon drizzle on top covered with Coconut syrup from Hawaii. Heaven en mi boca!!! Mark assured me it's fat free.



Mark was pooped after making that breakfast! I love being married to a guy who cooks better (and more...) than I do! 


I feel so blessed to be a mama! Noah is our world and I can't wait to spoil Mark on Father's Day, although he made it reallyyyy hard to beat!


Clark-Freeman Disney Vacation

My parents planned an awesome trip to Disneyland the end of April, beginning of May. Delta had really inexpensive tickets to get out there, which was a life saver! I'd fly any day over driving with Noah! We had 5 whole days of California Adventure and Disneyland. This was Noah's first time and I wasn't sure if he'd really love it or not. It turns out that he L-O-V-E-D it. 

We stayed at the Candy Cane Inn...adorable! I stayed there in high school for cheer competitions. It's just a half mile walk to the parks and worked out perfectly for nap times. Noah especially loved all the flowers and the hotel gift shop. Every morning he would go eat breakfast with Grandma and Grandpa (Grandma would feed him Fruit Loops every morning....naughty grandma! gaaagggg), then Grandpa would take him on a "nature walk" to smell the flowers. He'd usually come back to the room with all different kinds of flowers that he'd insist on me smelling. We REALLY missed "Da-da" while we were there. That would have made the trip perfect, but of course he had to work!
Noah was sick the first couple of days that we were there, but we just made sure we gave him two enemas a day and his antibiotics. By the third day he was doing great.


Noah's favorite rides were Ariel's Undersea Adventure and It's a Small World. We went on Ariel's ride probably 10 times. He's been really into fish ("ish") and stars lately...and there are lots of dancing starfish and fish on that ride for him to squeal at. Life is so much better with a fun and crazy toddler! It's a Small World brought the best reactions out of him! I was crying from laughing so hard. He'd just cover his mouth with both hands and squeal at everything. 


He was especially happy to show off his muscles.

There's naughty grandma again teaching him how to shoot guns at people. OH boy!

Noah didn't really like the water on this trip. I was so bummed! But the next week we swam at his other grandma's house and he loved the 85 degree pool water. I think the hotel pool was too cold for him. He's just like me!
All of my siblings were there, which was a blast of course! My aunt Cindy and her three kids came too. It was nice to have so many adults there to watch the babies so that we could go on rides too! My favorites were Screamin' California, Tower of Terror, Splash Mountain, Cars, and Peter Pan.

One of the nights we ate at the Rainforest Cafe. They had these huge fish tanks around the restaurant and Noah couldn't get enough of the "ISH! ISH!"


Just chillin' in It's a Small World on the last day we were there. By this point he was pretty tuckered out.

Grandma had to spoil him with a Mickey Mouse ice cream sandwich. Lucky boy!
