Weekend Fun!

Tuesday, June 14, 2011

We had a great weekend, a nice distraction.

Friday night Robb and I headed out to the Parade of Homes in GR one more time, we toured a few more homes and then grabbed some dinner and hit up Lowe’s for a shovel for Saturday’s big dig!

Saturday Robb headed to the lot at 6am to break ground for our new house!! We waited so long for this day, so exciting to be officially under way!

The boys and I, Kyle, Mindy and Makenna all headed to Kollen’s park to participate in the annual Lakeshore Pregnancy Center LifeWalk, we raised over $500 to support this great ministry!




After the LifeWalk we headed to the farmer’s market to stock up on some home grown goodness! We got a lettuce plant, a tomato plant, rhubarb, asparagus and granola! YUM!

We made a quick stop to the lot to check in on the guys and see the progress!





dig, baby, dig!


In the afternoon I made strawberry-rhubarb pie at my mom’s house with my sister. SO yummy! I only make 2 pies a year, a strawberry-rhubarb one and a peach one! It’s nothing pretty but it was so good! The pie plate was empty by Monday!


The guys finished up with the hole by 5ish and then we left for Target and Lowe’s (again). We ate at Carino’s with all the young dating couples :) *you’re not old, babe*  On the way home we drove around a couple of neighborhoods looking for exterior color inspiration!

We all needed a good night of sleep after a busy day so we planned on sleeping in and going to the late service at Ridgepoint church. Sadler slept 8 hours that night (and has been ever since!), it felt so good. After church we went to my Aunt and Uncle’s house to celebrate my Grandma’s birthday.

Then we headed to my parents cottage. It was a little chilly on Sunday, but it was nice to relax!

It was a great weekend!

I love Graydens "Can you dig it" shirt. ADORABLE! Congrats on getting the home of your dreams started. You are such an inspiration.

I love that you had Grayden dressed in his digging shirt to go dig! So sweet!

Praying for you guys and Sadler's birth family!

Hi there, I've been reading, er I mean stalking, your blog now for quite a while and I don't think I've ever commented, so Hi!

We actually went to school together but you're a few years younger than me...sigh. I actually think I coached you or your sisters in basketball camp over the Summer one year. Oh and you live only a couple of miles from us too, Ok, now you're probably thinking I really am a stalker, I promise I'm not.

So anyway, Hi, and I promise I'm not a weirdo, ha ha! You can come stalk my blog to make sure.
