Ten On Thursday

1. Grocery shopping with my lil lady...who screamed when I tried leaving without her.
2. SO proud of the slug he caught...YUCK!
3. Our first apple picking experience...(at Crane's Apple Orchard). The kids had a blast besides a few Molly tantrums. (Always gotta have a few of those). Only bummer was they weren't picking honeycrisp anymore. But we still got some of delicious ones!!!
4. Pretty sure he wishes he could deck her one ;)
5. Annual Post Family Farm outing. SO.Much.Fun. Just love this place. This year we planned to go with our neighbors. (Last year we just so happened to pick to go the same night and didn't know until we showed up there). One of our other neighbor's companies was "hosting" the night (which we didn't know) but he was kind enough to give us free donuts and cider plus tickets for the kids to pick out a $5 pumpkin. Thanks Gregg!!! If we would have spotted him quicker he would have even gotten us in for free. Oh well.
The kids LOVE the slide and pumpkin train...
Heading out to the pumpkin patch on the hayride to pick out our little pumpkins.
Trying to get a cute picture but Molly had lost it by this point.
6. LOVE me some freshly bathed babies!!!
7. On possibly our last warm Sunday afternoon of the season {please NO} we headed out to Brian's cousin's property (where Brian hunts) to go for a walk (and for Brian to check out his cameras). Brian threw some corn out (for.the.deer) and as guessed...Molly bent down to taste test.
8. Mason shooting a .22 with daddy. He was over the moon happy!!!
9. Always finding fun things on "Uncle" Bob's property.
10. A future photo opp. Love these woods. I did take the Mase and Mols pictures here last summer but didn't really get any good shots of the woods so I will def be taking Crew's 9 month pictures here!!!

Ten On Tuesday

1. It's the Incredible HULK...
2. Three of the cutest Michigan fans I ever saw!!!
3. Playing MONSTERS with his church buddy Nolan.
4. Watching for deer (in the tent blind) with daddy. He loved every minute of it (per daddy)!!!
5. Sometimes I'm just in awe of God's goodness and faithfulness. And some days I just have to pinch myself. Never thought my arms would be so full.
6. Has to be just like her big bro. Don't mind her face. As soon as she laid down (and right as I snapped this picture) she sneezed.
7. Delivering some (of our junk) mail to the neighbors. His excuse to knock on their door. (Good thing Mama knew they were gone). Cutest part of it all was him riding his Quad over with the mail on the back end.
8. We look SO forward to our {fun} Thursdays with grandma (and maybe grandpa) and Cole and Brinley. Last week to the beach. This past Thursday to Binder Park Zoo.
9. Last beach night. {Tear}. Oh how we love Holland Beach. We didn't do bathing suits or water but instead climbed the lil dunes (by the parking lot) and walked the pier.
10. I started my walk with Mason in his Quad. Molly walking. And Crew in the stroller. Somehow I ended my walk with all FOUR in/on the stroller. Oh my!!! Glad I didn't have the car seat in the stroller else one of the two bigs would have been crying BIG time.

Ten On Tuesday

1. Sunday afternoon walk at Hager Park. Time well spent!!!
2. And then a little action on the park toys. If big brother can do it...
so can little sis...
3. She INSISTS on buckling the seats BEFORE getting into her seat every.single.time she gets in the van. {Big sigh of patience}. And she also insists on sitting in brother's seat when he's not in the van as well. Gotta love her!!!
4. Matching The King, Lighting, and Chick to their appropriate colors on the bus. Guess he does know a thing or two ;)
5. First hair cut and she sat stiller than still. Yea Molly!!!
6. Sibling love...or he just wanted to choke her. Either or...she went with it.
7. Sunrise Park with friends. The tire swings were (always are) a HUGE hit. Only bummer is when Molly is on they can't go as fast or as high. But as always Molly has to do what the big kids do. So slow and low it was.
And after the fun tire swings we moved on to the regular swings where I gave Mason and his friend Adryanna some underdogs. On the third underdog Mason did a 360 off the swing and landed on his back and head. Talk about giving me a heart attack. He was a little shook up but appropriate and after an afternoon of watching him closely...he was back to normal by evening. Scary stuff.

8. One last trip to Holland State Park. 5 kids + 1 grandma + 1 mom ='ed a super fun...super gorgeous...super 80 degree day!!!
And this little one spent his time snuggling with his momma (oh and a little time in the stroller too).
9. And then my fun afternoon came to a screeching halt when I got hit on my way home. THANK GOODNESS we all walked away unharmed and the car was still drivable. But tomorrow to the repair shop it goes. Long story short...a 50 year old-ish lady turned right into me as I was going through an intersection ON A GREEN LIGHT. I was on a four way road (two heading east and two heading west) but she skipped her lane and continued right into mine. Just lovely. At least she was nice and super apologetic. She couldn't believe she hit a van with three tiny kids. 
10. Daddy said he needs to start brushing his own teeth. Welp this is what I saw the following moring...

Ten On Tuesday

1. And life resumes a little bit of normal. Daddy went back to work this Tuesday after a wonderful 3 week paternity leave, a 4 day Yooper vacation, and a holiday (Labor Day). 3 vs 1 here I go...
2. Crew made his first of many visits to say "hi" to his big sissy's. (Labor Day 2015).
3. Crew with his girlfriends Mercy and Haven. (My girlfriends twins born 2.5 weeks ahead of the Crewsers)!!!
4. Big bro and sis LOVE to do mat time with Crewsers...
No wonder he got her cold. Girlfriend is always in his business.

5. Mase kept walking on the rocks in the water so of course...
sis thought she had to too. Only thing is she took a spill in the mud. She is def my princess tom-girl!!!
6. I took all 3 to Meijer last week Friday...and we survived!!! I only needed a few items so it actually went quite well.
7. After I gathered the few grocery items we hit up the toy aisle. Neither {big} wanted to leave but eventually we did after I made Molly put back "her" stroller.
8. A reminder to never again give Molly a ice cream sandwich...
9. The tough part of having kids so close. Nobody wants to walk. (Hence Molly's sad face since she didn't beat Mase to the seat. So I made Mase let her sit on his lap. The tears stopped pretty quickly then).
But then just like that nobody wants to ride. {Sigh}.
10. Putting those scrap boards to good use (and entertainment)!!!
