The city of roses and Noam

Right after I got to PDX on Tuesday we sprung Noam from school and headed to the Rose Garden. I hadn't been there in a while and the weather was perfect for some time in the park! Noam had fun pointing at flower and running through the beds and I got to have some fun taking pictures of Noam and the roses.
 Noam was being very pensive at first. Mr. Serious took some time to warm up to the idea of looking at flowers.
 I just love how he puts his hands behind his back and on his hips and then down his pants...that's a toddler for you!
 The mountains were all out! This is Mt. Hood in all it's snowy glory!
Back to Noam! When we got back to their house he played with a very fancy toy, a salad spinner. He tried to spin his shoes and shirt, it's all the range in the culinary scene.
He rounded out the crazy toddler hour by proving the washable-ness of crayola markers, playing with his cars, some less messy coloring, and waiting for daddy to get home! So far so fun! We're off to the Japanese Gardens today, we'll see how zen Noam can be!

So cute! And thank goodness for washable markers, otherwise my youngest would have the most "lovely" tattoos.

what a sweet little boy Noam is. I love his name. Does it have a special meaning? The roses are glorious too.
