Hudsonville Fair 2015

I have LOVED "Fair Week" ever since I was a kid. And now I have SO much fun taking MY KIDS!!! Mason loved loved loved the rides. The bigger two enjoyed the animals, tractors, and snacks. Crew just slept through it all. What a fun night.

First stop was to see the animals. Snapped a picture of Crew "checking out" the pigs and daddy and the bigs checking out some cows.
After checking out the animals we moved on to the tractors. The kids LOVED sitting on all the different kinds. Big and small but especially the BIG.
Then we ate some yummy dinner at the Hudsonville Christian Food booth. And finally it was ride time!!! (My kids don't eat much so eating then riding does NOT affect their tummies).
Molly could go on all of two rides but she enjoyed those two rides. Mase could go on a bunch...swings included!!!

My sweet sweet WIDE awake baby boy just chilling well Mase (and a lil bit Mols) enjoyed the rides.
Mason's favorite ride. Did this thing like 8 times. Good thing he had an armband. Sheesh.

The Children's Museum

The weather last week was crazy cool and a wee bit rainy for a Michigan August. We made the most of it though and did numerous fun things...Children Museum included.
Construction F-U-N
They love the sand every time we come. 
(And when I say every I mean the two or three times we've come to the museum)!
My "Bigs"
A Sandy at the museum. No way!!!
The face of a kid who got the bubble up and around him on his very first try. (Mommy has a pic to verify but mommy liked this sweet smiling pic better).
Banging errr playing on the piano.
Rock climbing wall. So much fun.
More loud things to bang on. This kid was in his glory.
Girlfriend loves herself a slide
And loves to be in the driver's seat.

Ten On Sunday

1. Making the most of every day while dad is on {paternity} leave. A teeny tiny bit of rain and lower than normal summer temps won't stop our fun. Our ZOO fun that is!!!
Sometimes Mase is a good sport about getting his picture taken. Other times...not.so.much. Today was a not.so.much kinda day.
Crew's first visit to John Ball Zoo...
2. Mason has been begging to go bowling and since this month is $1 bowling at our local alley how could we say no!?! He had SO much fun. Perfect activity for a less than stellar weather week at the end of summer.
Even Molly "bowled."
3. Mason and Molly LOVE gator rides from "Uncle" Bob. (The ride actually put Molly right to sleep). LOVE this picture!
4. "Because I have a brother, I will always have a friend"...
5. Two were laying head to head...so I told Sassy to put her head by her brother's heads. She was more than happy to oblige!!!
6. She got put in time out for throwing her food off her tray. Memo to self: when putting child in corner...take rest of the food OFF the tray. {Sigh}.
7. On our way to Crew's (10:30am) two week well child check up. Shortly before arriving I saw this in my rear view mirror. Thankfully when we arrived at the PCP's office she woke easily for me (and not cranky either).
8. Well I shopped/ran errands with the baby...daddy took the bigs on a bike ride to explore a local park. Such a good daddy!!!
9. Was putting Molly to bed and came out and saw this. He loves him so. Melts my heart. 
10. Always climbing in to give kisses...

Crew's Newborn Pictures

Once again SO happy with our pictures from JD Expressions!!! Mason was SUPER cooperative. Molly not so much. And Crew was half way. But we got a few decent ones of the family and just the three kids (and a ton of super cute ones of just Crew) and a few is all you need!!! (Crew was only half way cooperative because I spent a good 45 minutes trying to get him asleep. I prefer my newborn pics to be of a sleeping newborn. So thankful for Jess's patience).
So thankful for this family God has blessed me with.
"There's no buddy like a brother"...
