Sadler and I had Mothers Tea at preschool Monday night. 

He thinks I'm 54 years old, and 55 pounds, I'm good at everything and we love each other "just because!" 
So sweet!

Thanks for the pic Sadler, just a little higher next time, bud! :)

if you like a little kick, you're gonna want to get these, but make sure you have someone to share them with, they are very addicting!

Tulip Time Parade

Tuesday, May 17, 2016

I took the kids to the parade on Wednesday, we got so lucky with such a beautiful day, the weather for the other parades last week was not so nice!

Like we have for the past 6 years, we met up with my friend Emily and her kids. 

Such a fun tradition! Already looking forward to next year!

You have a big heart for others.

You have yet to lose a baby tooth!

Grayden's 7th Birthday

Friday, May 13, 2016

What a fun day we had celebrating Grayden!

The past few years we've taken him out for breakfast on his birthday, this year we let him choose between going out for breakfast, or wait until after school and go out for dinner. Since he's not a big morning, or breakfast person he was easily persuaded to chose dinner!
Robb brought Mcd's to Gray and ate lunch with him and his friends at school!

Once he got home we dropped the two younger kids off my grandma and picked Robb up at work to head to Pizza Ranch (his favorite) for his special birthday dinner!

After dinner we went to Meijers quick to grab a few things and Gray picked out a small Lego set. 
We then headed downtown to the Tulip Time carnival.

Grayden loved this dragon roller coaster

 This hang-gliding ride took a little convincing, but he ended up LOVING it!

We wrapped up our night with a caramel and sprinkles apple for the birthday boy!

On the way back to the van he declared it the "best day ever" :)
