We parked in the Central Avenue CRC parking lot (they were doing a fundraiser for their Cadets) and Steve was quite proud that we got to park in Pastor Chad's spot (a friend of Steve's) so we had to take a pictureI really want a nice picture of all three of my boys so I dressed them all alike in hopes that we could get a good picture by the tulips. Yeah, it's very difficult to get 3 little boys to look at you at the same time, let alone all smile:
Not sure what David is doing here
The best we got, 2 out of 3 ain't bad :)
The little stinker himself. In his defense, he wasn't feeling well. He actually was running a fever but I figured keep him home and he will run around or take him to Tulip Time and he got fresh air and spent the whole morning sitting in either his car seat or the stroller.
Checking out some wooden shoes getting made
I think tulips are so pretty! Unfortunately due to our cold weather not all of them had opened, but the ones that had were beautiful
After lunch Steve and I headed home with the twins so they could get good naps in. Micah got to stay with Grandpa and Grandma to watch the Children's Parade. He thought he was big stuff getting to stay.
But he showed he's not quite big enough to go without a nap :)Thursday was our really nice day here, it decided to jump up to over 80 degrees. I had bought a water table for the boys a couple weeks ago with money they had gotten for Christmas but we hadn't used yet, it had never been warm enough to get out. Well, Thursday it was, so when Steve and my dad headed to a minor league baseball game, we put together the water table and had some fun. If you have little kids I highly recommend a water table, they are so fun. I got this one at Costco.
Friday my mom and dad took Micah and Jonathan to the Children's Museum. David had still been running a fever Thursday night so I thought a quiet morning home with mommy would be good for him. He ended up sleeping till 10:15! And he woke up with no fever which was great. It was pretty strange only having one boy to take care of. And man oh man, was that ever a piece of cake just having to watch one! :)
Playing in the sand table at the museum (I think my boys are going to love their sandbox if it ever gets dry enough to get a truck back there to put the sand in)
And then Friday night we FINALLY made it for the first time to the ice cream store! This is a very exciting event in the Bussis household!
You think Jonathan is enjoying his ice cream? :)
Micah loves having a face in his ice cream :)
Glad Mom and Dad could join us! They liked it so much they even went back Saturday night after the kids were in bed :).
Oh that is some good ice cream!Saturday we decided to head to the CRC Conference Grounds in Grand Haven. It was a place we could see the lake (we had thought maybe our kids would like to play in the sand, but upon arrive and feeling how cold it was by the water, we decided to just look instead), and they have a nice playground. So it worked perfect for us.
Checking out the lake
The twins love not being in a stroller and running around
Notice that beautiful house in the background? Yeah, that's where I want Steve and I to retire someday and he can be the director and I can be the music leader :). A girl can dream, right? :)
I wanted a nice picture with they twins, they didn't :)
My parents with my boys
Micah insisted that I take his picture in the gazebo :)
And then it was off to the playground which they had all to themselves
The twins were excited that they could climb the steps and go down the slide all on their own
David likes to go head first, no fear that boy!
My mom decided she wanted to ride on the dinosaur
Then she decided it would probably be better if she rode on it with one of her grandsons :)
We had picked up Subway on our way to the Conference grounds so after playing awhile we had a picnic lunch
Micah was pretty excited that Grandpa also picked up some chocolate milk for lunch
Singing with Grandpa
Then it got real serious- we had to break out the microphone
On last picture for you, the boys all enjoy a chocolate shake before bed. :)
Have a wonderful week!
