Spring/Summer 2016 Fun!

We thoroughly enjoyed this Spring and Summer.  We went to the zoo, on day trips, camping, hung out by our pool and got to know the horses at the farm next door.  It was full and it was fun.

Cool dudes

At the zoo!

Horses and cute buns

One of our favorite after-church pastimes in the Summer.  Walking along Grand Haven Pier and stopping for ice cream.

My birthday "day out".  We saw a beautiful house.  I am a house junkie.  I am fascinated by intricate architecture and pondering how people used to and still do live in their spaces.

We also walked along the water in Saugatuck.

For our family camping trip this year, we went to the UP.  This anchor is at Soo Locks, Sault Ste. Marie, MI

Youngest and oldest.  Sweet kids!

Pictured Rocks Cruise.  Love these two boys and how much they love each other!

Tahquamenon Falls

Taking selfies by the falls.


Lake Superior with my oldest boy

Lydia and mama, spending time together after nursing Gerrit in the church nursing room.  She went through a phase of never wanting to go to class (as in scream-bloody-murder- when-we-dropped-her-off-every-single-time-no-matter-the-consequences), so we finally decided to let her be with me in class or in the nursing room during class and she eventually grew out of it.  She now loves going to her church class.  I just remembered how long that phase felt from looking at this picture.  Phases come and phases go pretty quickly, but it never seems to pass quickly when you're going through it.  :)

Our new-to-us playground

Cute babies!

TV at the Dr. office. Totally immersed.

This picture cracks me up!  They are so dirty, their faces are brown!  They LOVE camping!

Getting ice cream on our Ludington camping trip!

Gerrit.  You are such a delightful child.  You make me smile every single day!

Love our camping adventures with friends

My crazy Tommy and his "camping hair"

More camping hair from Matthew Bud!

Like father, Like son.  Nate and Jonny in Ludington watching the Badger come in.

Carrying the cat, whether she wants to be carried or not.  Lydia you make us laugh!

His drink of choice.  ;)

Walking in a friend's campaign parade.  Go Matt!

Learning about our nation's history at an event after the parade

More of that hands on learning stuff.

Adorableness

Sometimes he loved his playpen by the pool and sometimes...not.  But at least it saved his life multiple times.  I LOVE that thing.

These curls are just the best!

Sweet girl!

See kids, I am fun.  ;)  Jumping off the pier in Holland

Holland Beach

This view.  Ahh...Can't wait for this again!

I have a large picture of this to hang in Lydia's room.  I love it.  Her facial expression, her hair, the way the skirt is blowing in the breeze, "Bully" who always bites and pulls on the fence.  Perfection.
