Watching Airplanes

We had a fun filled weekend this past weekend.  It was so great to finally have a non rainy, family weekend.  I started nannying a new baby last week, and stayed trapped in the house during the transition, so once the weekend came I was ready to go go go! That is exactly what we did.  Saturday we hit up the local zoo (post to come), and it was a lot of fun.  Sunday we headed to church and then we took the kids to the airport lookout.

Nick and I had been wanting to take Caleb to the lookout for a while, but had never gotten around to it.  We decided that after church on Sunday was the perfect time, and my grandmother was in town so she joined in on the fun as well.  We hit up a local Wendy's for a picnic lunch, and then headed to watch the plane.  The lookout is located close to the runway of the airport so you can watch the planes take off and land.  It has picnic tables, a parking lot, and a grassy area.  The kids both enjoyed sitting outside, eating, and watching the planes.  It is definitely an activity that will become a norm in our family. 

That night we took the kids to my sisters apartment complex to swim.  They both loved it!! Caleb was an absolute fish.  That was so unexpected because he is generally timid, but he took right to it.  Nick and I took turns holding his belly up while he swam up and down the pool.  He was great at holding on to the edge with both hands and moving himself around the pool as well.  I definitely think this is the year to invest in some swim lessons!!
