Crazy Fun at Crazy Bounce

Last week we celebrated our friend Will's 4th birthday at one of his fave places, Crazy Bounce.  It had been awhile since we had been there so my kids were beyond thrilled that we were going.  A blast was had by all.  I wasn't able to workout that morning but do think I got my workout in while there.  What a lot of work climbing and sliding can be. :) 

 Toddler bounce = popcorn and a drink.. 
A great combo for hot and hungry kiddos.

Kolt managed to sweet talk Miss Kelly into taking him again and again but by the time we were almost ready to leave he conquered a slide all by  himself. 
 We were SO SO proud. 
What a fun morning we had.
Thanks again William for inviting us to share your birthday with you. :)

Dress Up Days..

Just some random dress up pics from a typical morning at our house.  Kennedy was actually at g-ma's this particular morning or Kolter would've likely been sporting a tutu over a spider man costume. :)
I love brotherly moments where they are playing so sweetly and using their imaginations while at play.

Park Pals and Critter Camp

 Last week I met up with Wendi and kids for a fun morning of play at this lovely little park in Allendale.  We had wanted to check out the splash park that we had both seen pics of.  I was picturing it to be more like Millennium park's splash pad and much to my surprise it was more like the fountains in Holland.  The park is wonderful though and the kids had more than enough fun in the four fountains.

After a fun morning Kennedy and Jenna's fun wasn't quite over.  After a quick lunch and a change of clothes they were ready to spend the afternoon at the Critter Barn.  They did this same two day camp last year and had a blast.  I think they felt a little like farm pros since they had been there done that but both were super excited when I dropped them off.  

Kennedy fell in the love with the bunnies at first sight....  one may be joining our fam in the weeks to come.  You'll have to stay tuned... :)
  Kenz and Jenna, once again, had a great Critter Barn experience and are excited to head back.  They were given volunteer passes so some night they will be able to go back and help with chores and stuff on the farm.  I'm thankful my daughter has such a love for animals..  I know this didn't come from me. :)

Family Night

The kids went on their first go-cart and bumper boat rides a few weeks back when we had an enjoyable family night at Craig's Cruisers.  From the rides to the video games to pizza, that topped off the night, we all had fun bonding as a fam.  It's nights like this that I truly treasure.  Whether it's an out and about adventure, like CC, or just jumping on the tramp or taking a walk as a fam, it's the quality time together that is such a treat.  Thankful for awesome summer nights that allow us to take advantage of such fun times...

Lake Fun

A few weeks ago we met up with our boating friend's, the O'C's, and enjoyed a perfect summer afternoon at the beach.  We anchored the boats near the Bowl, braved the then freezing cold lake, and chilled on the shore.  The kids had so much fun playing, exploring and swimming.   

Perfecting a super secret hand-shake?!

All the kiddies minus Hayden... 

The tree branch that entertained them..
Kooper thought it should come home with us..
Didn't happen.. 

A great day and a must do again before the summer ends..
