Weekend Wrap-up

Monday, July 23, 2012

Friday night we all went to our former youth pastor’s home for dinner. Robb and I were youth group leaders for 3 years while he was the youth pastor of our church so it was fun to see them again and catch up a little, even though we had to chase our boys around all night!

Saturday morning we went to Robb’s grandma’s place to celebrate her 87th birthday, she gave Gray a ride on her walker!

from there we took our first family trip to the beach, we grabbed Wendy’s for lunch on the way, and got there at 12:00.

We had a great time, but we headed home around 2:30 so the boys could nap.

The boys took super long naps, we ended up waking Gray up at 6:00 so we could eat.

Robb roasted some hotdogs over the fire and we had a little cook out for dinner.

then we headed to Fennville to meet my parents and mindy, kyle, and makenna at Crane’s for dessert!

Sunday we went to church in the morning, came home, had lunch and the kids once again, took really long naps. By the time they woke up it was almost time for church again!

After the evening service we meet our friends at a park for pizza and play time.

after we played for a few hours, a few of the girls came over to our house watch the Bachelorette together and we chatted until 2am!

It was another awesome weekend!
