What Happened? What Happened?

This weekend went by quickly, but was full of fun. Friday morning, Tony and I went to Muskegon, after looking at a motor home in Allendale.

We were able to hang out with Daniel, Katie, Willow, Ginger, Isaac and Will for the weekend. Katie left Saturday but the fun continued.

It was great to hang out with the boys, and I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Willow and Ginger. They are all so sweet and kind, yet full of spunk.

Some moments I will remember for a while:

Isaac reading Brown Bear Brown Bear. He did a fantastic job.

Reading Cat and Mouse to Ginger and having Willow read to me before they went to bed.

Cuddling with Will after a long day, and having him snuggle with me and his blanket.

Watching the four children play tag, or was it "goose goose"

Sledding, with "dog" chasing us.

Gymnastic tricks. Willow does some amazing splits.

Singing this little piggy with the boys in the van on the way back from a "special adventure"

Katie's delicious eggs. Absolutely delicious. Daniel's pancakes were pretty good too.

Too bad it had to come to an end. Unfortunately, it was back to work right away. I went in at 3:30 this evening, and it was quite a busy night. Apparently there has been quite a bit of theft in the area.

Can't wait until we can all hang out again.

Lindsey - I am not sure what is going on. To see the picture of the kids, scroll down a little bit. Apparently Tony tried to upload a different video (one of the kids) but youtube is broken and posted the wrong one- not sure of the details. Hopefully he will get it fixed.

no, sorry for the confusion - that guy drinking beer was actually my third daughter Bernice. We don't talk about her a lot, Tony and Tara weren't supposed to say anything.

But since they helped make the weekend great in countless other ways(including giving my cooking more credit than it deserves), this assault on the privacy of my giant masculine secret alcoholic daughter can be forgiven. This time.

Thanks for visiting us; it looks like the real fun happened while I was gone! Could I steal the video? :)
Looking forward to next time.

Willow's amazing splits are a frequent topic of conversation in our house. Maya was just telling one of my violin students about "Willow spits" and "Gin-gin" today. She always attempts to demonstrate the splits, but she might need some coaching from some of her cousins to really get it right. :)
