10 years

How cow is about the best thing to say at this point because I can not believe it's already been 10 years in some ways because of how fast it has gone since I married my Best Friend. In other ways though I can not remember times that he was not part of my life. We have had an awesome 1 decade with so many of the great big things people strive for. We got married and less than a year later we bought our first home and got a dog. Two years later we had our first child followed by 2 more over the following 5 years. We now have a almost 3 year old starting preschool in the fall, a 5 year old starting Kindergarten in the fall, and an couple of s away from 8 year old going into 3rd grade. It's just crazy to look back and see where we were and where we are now. I could not have asked for anything else, right down to the little bumps and pot holes. I would not want to go through even the tougher times with any one else but someone who knows me and accepts me for everything I was created as and for. God could not have blessed me any more than He has!!! I am so thankful for the last 10 years and the special trip we were able to take in February to celebrate this time. Looking forward to see what the next decade brings us!

Memorial Day Weekend

This weekend was a fun and busy weekend. We left on Thursday afternoon to go camping up in Ludington. We stayed at our favorite campground called Poncho's Pond where they have so much for the kids to do. We really like the fact that there is an indoor and outdoor pool to enjoy depending on the weather. The playground is really great too.

Our first night was interesting because Logan took a bit to settle in as usual but the bigger problem was his peapod bed tent falling off from the dinette bed because he had moved so much going to sleep. So that took another 2 hours for him to settle in and he still woke up at 7am. We still had a good day on Friday and the kids just love going swimming. Logan got a new life vest/swimming aid that has given him a ton of freedom. I will get some videos and pictures posted soon as my laptop is still out of commission (a whole different post).

The second night was a ton better and on Saturday we got Allie the same swimming thing and she took to the water better than she ever has.  We just spent the day playing on the playground, swimming, and relaxing on our camping site.  The same thing happened on Sunday as well.  I was even able to reorganize the camper and finally feel like we are in a great set up for our stuff.

Monday morning we woke up to storms and rain coming off the lake and decided to pack up and head home.  We were home by 9:45am and able to get a few things done around here as well.  We spent the rest of Memorial laying low and vegging around the house.
