Kids Birthday Party- 2017

This post is almost a year late but I wanted to get it posted and life is slowing down so it's time to play catch up.

In 2017 Max turned ONE! His first year went by so fast and he grew so quickly. Marley turned 9 and Mason turned 5.  We had one big party for all of them at my parents house so we could use their pool. I didn't take many photos but here's a few.

Christmas Day 2014

On Christmas morning we had to wake up the kids to show them that Santa came!!  

They hurried downstairs and Marley quickly passed out their presents. 

I'll do another post with what we bought them, but Santa did deliver the requested silly string and cars. 

After we finished opening presents at our house we got ready and Mike and the kids headed to his dads, while I headed back to my moms.  After we ate Mike and the kids came to my parents house to open more presents.  

They received lots of great stuff and had a great time playing and eating too much sugar. 

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas too!

Christmas Eve 2014

I can't believe Christmas is already here and gone. It goes so fast.  I'll share our Christmas post tomorrow, but today is all about Christmas Eve. 

First thing we did in the morning was go see Santa. We usually go in November, but since we moved 30 minutes away from Bass Pro we weren't out that way until now. The kids asked for silly string (Marley) and cars (Mason)  No tears this year! 

After that we went out to eat with Mike's dad and then home to relax for a little while. 

Around 5pm we headed to my mom and dad's house to let the kids open their presents from them and have dinner. 

The kids got a lot of cute stuff and had a great time playing with their cousins. We headed home around 9pm to get to bed and wait for Santa!!

Air Zoo in Michigan

About a month ago we headed up to the Air Zoo in Kalamazoo, Michigan. We had seen signs for it along the highway before and when I looked it up online I knew we had to go. 

When we got there Mike was in heaven. Airplanes everywhere. It took him at least 5 minutes to get 10 feet through the door because he was talking to one of the volunteer workers about all the airplanes. 

They mostly had airplanes, but they had a space shuttle and a few other flying things. 

They had a few rides for the kids. Mason was okay with this one until it started moving. He leaned right over onto Marley and started whining. It was cute but so sad.  He actually rode all the rides and by the second time though he was fine and was having fun. 

This was the second time we rode it. She wanted to go alone. So brave. 

We were there a few hours and had a lot of fun. They also had some flight simulators and I think that was Mike's favorite part of the whole thing. He loved it all though. Just like a kid in a candy store.
