Holland Channel

My mom camps at Holland State Park each Labor Day weekend and Abbi and I were able to squeeze in some beach time before we left for northern Michigan.

Fuller Reunion

When Derek's college friend and his family came in to town we decided we should get together as many of the old college buddies as we could. It was fun to see the kiddos play together. 

 I can't believe they are all looking and smiling on the first try. One baby was in bed already and I'm not sure why Abigail is as far from the boys as she can get... did I set her there?

The MVP Pool

THIS is where we spent our summer days, evenings and Sunday afternoons. With a summer full of 90 and even 100-degree days, the pool was the perfect cure. The concession stand wasn't bad either. Mmm... frozen smoothies.

Hudsonville Fair

The highlight of the Hudsonville Fair is always climbing on all the big tractors. 

 We avoided a few barns due to the flu going around but couldn't resists these cute goats.

 One of Abigail's first "real" rides: this quad. It went a little fast for her. We couldn't get her to look up or smile, she just hung on tight with a worried look on her face the whole time!
She liked the carousel more!

Knapp Reunion

 Yesterday we got together with almost everyone from my college house during my junior year at Calvin College... there are a lot of babies and kids now!

Grand Haven State Park

 We found an opening at this state park for a weekend and thought we'd try it out because we love the city and waterfront of Grand Haven! 

 We found a nice city park with a "Timbertown" type playground for Abigail. Trying to keep up with her in this heat makes me tired though... it's hard climbing over all those wooden platforms as pregnant as I am!
 Mmm.. ice cream. 

 A beautiful rainbow and huge clouds the morning we packed up. We tried to beat the storm!
 You've gotta love sand and blacktop and tight spaces because that's what Grand Haven State Park is all about. It's not the outdoor adventure you would be looking for or very kid-friendly but it's so close to the boardwalk which is fun!
