It was a very busy week with VBS and Access Adventure and a weekend of me and the kids with my family in Michigan and then Sunday at Joe's parents, so we grabbed these first pics together after a quick evening walk before bed. Then Monday we got to spend the day together and celebrate our sweet Daddy at the beach in Chesterton. It was a perfect day to be at the beach and the water was even warm enough to swim in. Topped off with gyros, burgers, fries and then chocolate cones for the ride home!
Thankful for our main man and how hard he works and how much he loves us - we love you Daddy!! <3

Troops Reunion 2013

Had an amazing weekend with my TU girls in Holland, Mich. Stayed at an awesome guest house - it was seriously incredible. Had such special times of catching up, laying by the pool, sharing meals, riding bikes, getting ice cream. Noah got lots of love as the only baby in tow (not counting the 2 babies in bellies... :))
Thankful we could all make it - it's never long enough but it's always wonderful and always leaves me excited for next year and the memories to come. LOVE you girls <3 <3

When do we ditch the Crib??

Talked to a friend whose 2 year old has been in a bed awhile and they will soon move their one year old to a bed as well so got me thinking about when do we transition our gal to a bed? And do we do a toddler bed or go straight to a big bed?
Any tips on when and what kind of bed?
Lucy is doing great in her crib still so I just haven't thought about it much. Let me know if you have anything to share, I'd appreciate it!

(And thanks for the crib Ashley! :))

Academy Awards 2013

This is always such a fun night for the youth group. They make movies and then we get all dressed up and have our own Academy Awards night where they are played in a real movie theatre. It was a blast! Got to re-wear a bridesmaid dress and eat popcorn & cherry coke - what could be better ;) Here's some pics!

Looking forward to next year!!

Father's Day help

Ahhh - the Real Simple Gift gift isn't going to cut it.....
Anyone have some good ideas for gifts for my hubby????
I get my dad coffee because he never seems to want anything else - but if you have good ideas for dads/grandpa's mention it too
