TinCaps Game, July 2011

On Sunday, we treated my mom and dad to their first Fort Wayne TinCaps game. We all had a great time. The kids got their faces painted and we got to see some awesome fireworks! My parents had a great time and were super glad they got to come.

Paige's Crossing

Last Friday we took the kids to Paige's Crossing in Columbia City. They had a great time, but DID NOT enjoy the roller coaster! I though that it was going to be a nice, slow, kiddie-type ride. Boy was I wrong! It was a miniature full-fledged coaster! Grace and I loved it, but Colt and Ella were in tears by the time we got off the ride. Colt did, however, love the go karts he rode with Chris - he does love his "racers"!

Pokagon Trip, June 2011

Last month we took the kids to the beach at Pokagon and to ride horses at the stables at Pokagon. This was Colt's first time riding and he had a great time! I unfortunatle can't swim in lakes, so I got to bask in the sunshine : )

Bathroom Re-model, June 2011

We decided to do some bathroom updates this summer. You can read what we did on the pics above. Chris and my dad did such a good job and it looks great!! I'm very proud of how it turned out!

Picking Strawberries & Jam Making

Every year we take the kids up to Wawaka to LeCount's strawberry farm to pick strawberries. The kids have a great time and we get some pretty great berries. This year was especially fun since Colt got to really help. He was so excited everytime he found a berry, it was so funny!! That night, I made strawberry jam. It turned out so delicious, if I do say so myself! : )

TeeBall ans LOB Softball, May

We started baseball/softball season in May. This is Ella's first year for tee ball. She's on the team Pythons and she's doing a great job!! This is Grace's third year playing, so she is playing on an all girls softball team. She is on team Inferno. He hitting and catching are improving dramatically!

Been Away for a While...

Sheesh! This spring and summer has been SO busy!! I have been away from the blog for so long!! Hopefully, I will get some time to catch everyone up on what we've been doing : )
