I have to catch up!

I know, it's been a crazy long time since my last update!!! Rather than go backwards, I think I'm going to focus on the past week and go from here! Sorry about the large gap in time that contained a wonderful week at my parents house, our 10th anniversary weekend, my 34th birthday, cherry picking, and more fun than I can remember!
We've had a great past week that included picking blueberries twice (once with Kate and Jack and once the girls and I picked with my parents...yummy!)! Tom and I had a wonderful birthday celebration dinner with the Bolt's (Kate's birthday and my birthday are this month) at six one six in grand rapids. Dan's parents and Tom's parents are best friends so they got together in Holland and watched all the kids. What a hoot!!
We bailed out on camping last weekend due to predicted bad weather and my girls fighting colds and fevers. We ended up enjoying a weekend in the Holland area, that couldn't have been more perfect! We hiked in Saugatuck (and took the chain ferry), picked blueberries, went to the beach, and I even took my dad out for his father's day breakfast! It was awesome!!
This week we've been enjoying a week at home, doing summer things. Yesterday was the annual kids day at Coast Guard Festival in Grand Haven. Tom's work volunteers at it each year. The kids LOVE it, especially the fire truck spraying the hose!! I've gotten smart in my years and bring a change of clothes!! During dinner last night we discovered quite by accident that Noah had lost a tooth. His first tooth. And when I say lost...I mean LOST....we have NO idea where it is. He must have swallowed it :( The child has no idea when or where it happened, but was quite excited when we discovered it. Ok, never heard of that before, but he left a note for the tooth fairy, who was quite understanding and left money anyway. My baby boy is growing up this summer...he rides a 2 wheel bike, now a lost tooth. Where does time go. Treasure every moment I say!! My motto for my 34th year is to: "Be Present" Every day, in all I do.

We missed you at Shipshewana today! I heard we almost snagged ya to join us! It was fun! Hey, do you have the special tooth fairy box from a house party you gave years back? We have used that for all our tooth fairy encounters. Jake is losing teeth again, just molars this time. The dentist told us this week, braces for him in a few years..Can you believe it? Time flies..Happy belated b-day!!!

Love the pictures! I'm sure that tonight we'll hear all about the adventures of the week :) Noah looks as proud as punch to be the first one to lose a tooth....

Glad to see you're back to blogging :)
