We made Sadler's wish come true by riding across the bike bridge in Zeeland a couple Saturdays ago!

tennis camp for the boys!

It was Sadler's first year, he was a little out of sorts about it, but we are hoping it grows on him!

Robb and I had date night Thursday, we did a progressive dinner downtown, starting with a super yummy appetizer at The Curragh 

we did a little shopping, and saw a couple street performers 

then ate our main dish at Big E's... 

and we wrapped up the night with a sugar high :)
Such a fun night!

her first French braid, I could not handle it! LOVE!

What my kids do at the splash pad is so telling of their personalities;

Grayden says Goodbye to 1st Grade!

Friday, June 10, 2016

Grayden had his last day of 1st grade today! We are so proud of him; he experienced a lot of "firsts" this past year; first time riding the bus, first year at a new school, first year going all day/everyday and he handled it all like a champ! So grateful for a wonderful teacher, a great school, sweet friendships and an omnipresent God that contributed to a great year!

first day vs last day comparison!

He had a half day of school, so we met him at the bus stop with bubbles and a "first grade finish line" for him to run through, and then we headed to Pizza Ranch with Grandma R for lunch!

And a little throwback picture of lunch at PR on the last day of Kindergarten, we may have a new tradition :)

The bus alarms on my phone have been turned off, and we are officially on our way to a great Summer! Yahooooo!!!!!!!

Our first meal on the patio this summer after church a couple weeks ago... I love summer!

oh this girl!

Having fun with daddy, these boys love to swing!

our latest project, putting some girlie touches on Jovie's changing table/dresser

everyone wanted to help

the subtle pink hue and 'vintage' shabby chic knobs are just perfect for her big girl room!

first time to the farmers market!

first dip in the lake!

little love at Sadler's preschool park party

this boy: up at 6:20am on a Saturday asking to play math games on my computer! I sent him to the closet and went back to bed.

we decided to cool Grayden off when he got off the bus one day this week by surprising him with water baloons!

they were ready and waiting!

sweetest little deer I ever did see in our back yard yesterday! 

we checked out Meg's Playhouse with our friends on Wednesday, the kids had such a great time and the momma's had lots of time to chat!

Sadler having so much fun on the Roelof's new inflatable water slide!

Grayden's school concert was today, so cute!
He's in the green shirt second row from the back, left side 

Tonight we had an impromptu dinner with Jovie after Lisa asked to take the boys mini golfing, we couldn't pass up an opportunity for dinner on the patio at Salt & Pepper on a beautiful night, and some special 2-on-1 time with our girl!

What a fun surprise for the boys to go mini golfing with Aunt Lisa, they had such a fun time!
