More stitches!

Caden Rodney made his second trip to the ER for stitches.  This time he slid/fell off the kitchen counter and knocked a heavy wooden bar stool over onto his eye.  4 stitches and 1 hour later he was back at home climbing the ladder on the playset and playing in the sandbox '_'

Day at the farm

We spent the day at a local farm with the Ladies of Notre Dame group.  We were able to see bunnies, goats, cows, and even ride a pony!  We had a bonfire and roasted hotdogs and marshmallows too.  The kids were in heaven : )

Michigan Grandparent Weekend

We headed to Michigan for Lindsay's graduations from MSU and Mother's Day (and my and Corey's 13 year wedding anniversary!) and managed to fit in a visit with all 3 sets of grandparents!

We started with Grandpa Pfromm and Ninny in Lansing at the Children's Museum...we had a lot of fun playing with the bubbles, water, instruments, play kitchen and so much more! 

We somehow did not manage to capture a picture of our graduate, but we did manage to snap a photo of her cake.

And here is Blake and Marlee, being escorted by Uncle Tom - too cute!

Lily turns 4!

Our little Lily Bug turned 4 May 5th!  It was a beautiful day and we had a super fun day celebrating.  We started with a run to soccer practice, followed by a trip to the nail spa with Stacey and Elliott, then the entire Hall family joined us for dinner.

Celebrating Birthdays...

Grandma Sandy, Grandpa Dave, Uncle Jimmy and Aunt Andrea came down for the weekend to celebrate birthdays.  We had a lot of fun (especially Andrea who started her visit playing Easter in the basement for an hour with Lily : )  Caden has taken to calling both Grandma Sandy and Grandpa Dave, "Gamma Sandy Dave".
Lily and  Caden each received a book and the cutest little rocking chairs.

And per Lily's special request, Uncle Jimmy made Lily a butterfly cake : )

The next day we gorged ourselves on brunch, then headed to Notre Dame to feed the ducks and enjoy the sunshine. We saw geese, ducks, swans, big turtles, and even a baby turtle in our path.

Day at the beach

Lily, Caden and I took advantage of the warm weather and headed to Children's Beach to try out the new carousel, Discovery Zone, and play in the sand.  We had a great day!  Later that night we went to a Silver Hawks game with Lily's school.

We rode the carousel 3 times - the first time Caden rode with Lily.  Then he kept saying, "I scared" so we just stood next to Lily and I hold him.
Our face prints - Caden's mouth at the bottom, me top left and Lily to the right.  We amused ourself for a good half hour playing on the pin wall : )

Enjoying the sand.

Back pack, back pack!

Lily decided she wanted to wear a backpack to school this day, just like her daddy does : )  So of course Caden had to wear one too (which he just got for his birthday).  So they packed up and headed off to school.  They look way to grown up!!!
