Spectacular Summer Saturday!

Monday, August 23, 2010

I love the last days of summer, trying to pack in the long list of things I wanted to do during the Summer months but was to busy to do earlier on.

This past Saturday we checked two of those things off my list!

The first was a beach day with my friend Nicole, which actually turned into shopping day due to sketchy weather!

We had a blast together having deep conversations over coffee and bagels at Panara Bread and browsing the shops of Downtown Holland!

Thanks for a great afternoon Nicole, we made some great memories I hope I’ll never forget!




After a fun afternoon I went home to the family and we all headed out to a community dinner. There was a petting zoo and old tractors there that Grayden LOVED!







After dinner we went home and waited for our friends to come over for a party we had at our house! We had 5 couples over to play games and after dark we watched a movie outside with a projector aimed at the side of our pole barn! It was a blast!

We played Minute to Win it and each couple got to pick a category and play against each other!

Ryan and Lydia played Sticky Balls!


They had to transfer as many cotton balls as they could in 1 minute  from one bowl to another using only their noses with Vaseline on it!



We went inside for the next game! Eric and Susanne played Defying Gravity.


They had to keep 3 balloons floating in the air for 1 minute!



Mindy and Kyle went next. They played Hanky Panky!


They had 1 minute to empty a whole box of Kleenex using 1 hand!



Phil and Heather went next, they played Mouth to Mouth!


They had 1 minute to pull a playing card out from 2 glass bottles sitting on top of each other mouth to mouth without tipping the bottles over, tricky but Phil succeeded!



Then it was Ryan and Rochelle’s turn! They played Bottoms Up!


Their task  was to tie a pantyhose with a tennis ball in one leg around their waist and spin themselves around to knock 3 empty pop cans off 3 buckets! So funny!



We went last and played Penny  Hose!


We had 1 minute to dig 2 pennies out from the bottom of the legs of pantyhose using only our arms without pulling the legs using your opposite arm!



Then it was time for the movie! We watched the Bounty Hunter!


We had such a good time!
