LAD finally tasted corn on the cob, after about half a dozen times of putting it on his plate. He spit it back out, but at least he tried it. Doesn't taste like hominy I guess, which he loves! We have a bicycle with a seat on the back for him, so here he was wearing my helmet. He doesn't mind wearing his, just like a hat I guess! He loves to get out all the ribbon from my ribbon jars in the craft room.
We also went to the State Fair, Iowa's fair is on the list of the best 100 things to do, or something like that. It's a pretty good one. Plus they have lots of FANCY tractors. The artist tends to wear, and try to eat, more paint than he actually gets on the paper!
We went to the zoo. Went geocaching, well sort of...hard to do with a GPS with no batteries...so we hiked the trails anyway...

LAD has had mashed potatoes and gravy several different times in the past, not really all that recently, but last week he was asking for "gravy", at least that was my best guess, so we made mashed potatoes and gravy. He ate it, but I didn't think he was all that "impressed" with it. Ok, whatever.Turns out, it must have been really great. A few days later, to show his appreciation, LAD wrote me this song, complete with dancing too.At first I thought he was saying "Groovy Momma" and maybe it was a song they learned at school, or something...Well, turns out, no- they don't sing any songs like that at school, so ok, must have been "Gravy Momma" after all.Of course every time I turned off the camera, he performed flawlessly. But this is a pretty good representation of it...Doesn't it sound like something some fancy C/W star would sing?
Outside. LAD's favorite place to be! And if it involves a ball or ice cream, that's even better!!!
Reiman Gardens. Memorial Day weekend.
Tulip Time in Pella.
Trip to ARK and MO. LAD stayed in ARK with Aunt Suzie and Oma while I went to Raleigh for a business meeting.
LAD's a great helper. Nothing like learning to shovel gravel!
Grandpas. Tractor Heaven!
The Whitehill's. LAD go to spend time with them when he stayed in MO when I went on a round-a-bout trip from OK to ND, then back to MO.
