Family Fun in February - Day 2

Today we got up early and headed out to Bounce Party.  I figured that the boys would LOVE it (Justin included).  We spent 90 minutes running, jumping, sliding, and climbing (and trying to stick to a velcro wall that didn't work very well).  All I know is I was worn out.  We had so much fun and afterwards had a yummy lunch at Red Robin, where poor Jess had icy beverages spilled down her back by the new waiter!!  Jill's car had to make a stop at Krispy Kreme and stock up on donuts, and the kids played the afternoon away.  Everyone took off after dinner, and shortly after they left I got a call from Jill saying she just had to pull over on the highway so Hayden could throw up.  Hopefully it was just a combination of being over-tired and car sick!
We really had a great time with everyone and are so blessed to have such a close and fun loving family!  Thanks for coming out everyone!

You had to know he wouldn't go down in a conventional way!

So Justin has to show him how it's done

Family Fun in February - Day 1

For the last few years, Hayden has come out to Grand Rapids to hang out with us for a few days during his February break. This year, it just so happened that Jess and Justin were home from being on the road, so the whole family came out for a few days to have some fun!
When everyone got here we decided to go to the Children's Museum and let the kids play... Justin had a great time and we were so proud of him behaving while out in public :)
The kids actually had a great time, even though most of the exhibits upstairs were closed while they were setting up for the Blue Man Group exhibit.
When we got home we brought in some pizzas, let the kids play, and hung out together; just one big happy family!
Here's a few photos from today:

The bubbles are always a big hit
