fake laughs

Grayden's 'new thing' is to fake laugh with his hand over his mouth, wonder where he got that from?! I think its simply precious!
I realized I took the video sideways so I took another one but wanted to post them both! I love when he says 'hi' to the dog!



haha! what a stinker, totally ignoring mom already! My fake laugh isn't nearly as cute, i realize!

ps. on a totally unrelated note be sure to head over to my giveaway blog and enter for a chance to win a blog makeover, today is the last day to enter! the link is on the sidebar!

Saturday Family Fun Day {part 3~The Game}

After we left the zoo we grabbed some dinner and headed out to 5/3 Ball Park to see the West Michigan Whitecaps game!
This was Grayden’s second time seeing them play, last year he was just a little thing

grayden 1488

and this year he’s so much more mobile so we got ourselves some lawn seats so he could move around a little! That worked out really well!

I was asked to participate in one of the games they do during the innings and won chocolate graham crackers for our whole section! Super exciting :)IMG_7769

robb took a video of me playing the price is right game (i’m just to the right of the sun streak!)

While we waited until it was time for me to go out on the field we got to wait in the dugout and get up close to the players which was pretty cool! Grayden was hamming it up for everyone, showing off his muscles and giving high-fives!

The best part was while we were standing in the dugout the 1st base coach threw us a game ball!!

It got to be way past Grayden’s bedtime by the time the game was done but he did great and we are so glad we planned such a fun day to make so many memories together!

so excited about the fishies!!

we had a great time at the zoo!

I never thought I would be able to bring my children to the zoo because of my insane fear of monkeys but I’m happy to report I was able to leave the zoo unharmed by those crazy creatures! Thanks to the zoo’s signs I was able to avoid them completely! phew!

Saturday Family Fun Day {part 1~The Pool!}

We had a super fun day planned for Grayden on Saturday! We started off with a trip to Robb's parents pool! It was perfect weather for some swimming, or as Grayden (and I) prefer, raft floating!)




we enjoyed the water for an hour or so and then went home for lunch and a nap before we headed out for part 2~the zoo!

eta for those that asked: my suit is from tjmaxx, 24.99! jantzen brand
