Michigan's adventure

We went to Michigan's adventure amusement park.. We had a blast. If you ask Kai what his favorite thing in America is he will tell you Michigan's adventure. It is two parks in one, rides and water park. Ashley and my friend Laura went on the rip cord- brave souls. We also went on the funnel of fear, boy oh boy it was just that. There is a picture of it in the montage. All is all it was a great time had by all.

We decided to go camping as we do every year. So I packed up the van, five kids, three dogs and off we went. We weren't sure how the boys would do being they have only been here a month. What was I thinking!! They loved it. From cooking out to roastings Marshmallows to swimming all day to riding their bikes through the trails to sleeping in the tent they loved all of it. They loved hanging flashlights on their bikes and riding in the dark. When we left today Kai asked "when we go again mom"

John ball park Zoo

We went to the zoo. The girls always enjoy going..But bringing the boys to their first zoo experience was really fun. Especially since they are older.. They were really in awe of it. They loved being able to feed the stingrays and sharks and petting them.
