homemade glitter wand!

this weeks craft was one i've seen floating around pinterest a lot and something i thought corbin would love to make! we hit up the dollar store for glitter and colorful poms. i dug thru our recycle bin for a water bottle that i filled half way up with water. and cut up some ribbon we had laying around. [other fun ideas are mini dice, beads, and anything else tiny enough to fit thru the top of the water bottle.] 
i laid it all out on a tray while he was napping and after he woke up and had some snuggles i showed him the set up. he was stuffing the poms in the water bottle before i even had a chance to explain! it was a great opportunity to talk about colors and textures.
stuffing stuff into water bottles-SUPER EXCITING!!
serious hand-eye coordination going on!
after all the pieces were stuffed inside corbin helped sprinkle some glitter in and twist the lid back on.
then he tipped it upside down and shook it and even tried taking a drink!
later i used hot glue to keep the lid closed tight. but i gotta be honest, he hasn't really played with it much since we made it. i'm on the lookout for some mini tractors or maybe fun shaped erasers to stuff inside the next one!

skate park!

i'm slowly realizing the tiny little town without a stop light that's closest to our house in the middle of nowhere has things to offer! today we hit up the post office and then found a little park on our way home! we still had corbin's bike in the car from our playdate a few days? a week? ago and i thought the empty skate park would be the perfect place for him to ride it! he was a big fan of riding it up and down the smallest ramp and i nearly had a heart attack picturing him older skating and jumping around on the bigger ones!!



since we missed story time this morning (worth it to sleep in!!) we also hit up the tiny little library which i loved beings that corbin just runs around crazy when we go to bigger ones. i was able to keep my eye on him while i picked out lots and lots of halloween and tractor books!

corbin has taken a liking to showers lately and it could not be any cuter to watch! 
he's like a big kid now or something.

fair fun!

we waited til the last minute to head to the fair this year and ended up having to brave the wind and rain for fair scones and an earthquake burger (for ryan, not me! ew.) lucky for our bank account corbin isn't really into rides yet so besides food we walked around doing all things free!
like driving tractors and making friends with little horned sheep!
corbin is way into drums right now so stopping to let him trance out to these guys was a must!
and riding around on daddy's shoulders watching the rides and gigantic pumpkin carvers!
we left before a total down pour and 
just in time for corbin to take a bite of his snack and pass out from all he fun!
