Do you think I can do it? Sum up our life from the last 30+ days? We'll see, here I go.
And just so we're clear, our life is full of wonderful and awful times, extreme highs and extreme lows as well. You know this well if you're one of the dear friends I call on weekly for help. I just choose to focus on the best, I want to remember a good story.
My parents and Brooke came mid May and BAM the summer started for us:) Brooke's been making the boys laugh hard, teaching Tate how to say cool things like "oh no you din't!", and busting out braids in all our hair.
A trip out West to visit Holland, Michigan for the tulip festival kicked off the good times. Our first time seeing Lake Michigan, and the darling town of Holland and neither disappointed.
Finn has a soft spot for my dad, in a big way.
Just before we made the 3 hour drive home we stopped by the beach. Tuck already fell asleep for the night in the car, so Finn got a single ride on the swing!
We made sand angels...
and Finn took a long time deciding if he liked the feel of the sand on his toes or not.
In the end, he did.
Later that week we visited the beautiful Greenfield Village, part of the Henry Ford Museum. I can't say enough good about this place. If you ever have a chance to visit Michigan put this on your list.
You can ride a model-t car, walk through the real Edison laboratory, the Wright Cycle shop, Lincoln's courthouse, and the Robert Frost home.
This historic home I was absolutely in love with!
We learned how they make glass, and also watched the weavers meticulously work.
This picture about sums up our kids... Tuck wide eyed and totally chill, Tate posing, and Finn completely goofy. Notice Wyatt might even be giving you a fake smile and I'm probably pinching him to get him to smile at all:)
That covers one week:)
Oh boy. I know this is absolute photo overload, sorry if that's not why you're here. Parts 2, 3, and 4 will be: The boys birthday party, Mother's Day, our new tree swing, Tate's preschool graduation, Finn's walking, a night at the Birmingham fair, Tuck's weekend in the hospital, the set up of our first ever tramp!, the Eastern Market, and beach day at Wing Lake!
I also have plans to start a new series about what Tate's wearing (We all know she's the real star of this blog anyway:), talk strategy when it comes to life with twins, share some good food recipes, and pictures of some new things that have made their way into our home.
Phew... that's a lot!
