Spring Break

Last week was spring break for us, so we got out of Dodge, and headed North. We wanted to spend some time with Jason and we were blessed that he had a really "up" week to spend with us. We drove straight through to Chicago where we spent the night, met Opa and Oma and then Chris headed to MI while the kids and I spent the day in Chi-town.

Waiting for the Animal Show - it turned out to be the favorite part of the day for everyone. Clayton loved the Beluga whales, and Garrett thought the three penguins that waddled through the auditorium were pretty cool!
We took Jason and Grandma to the park and enjoyed some (as we far as we can tell) rare Michigan sunshine and donuts. The boys had a blast playing tickle monster and Campbell napped most of the time. But we did manage to capture a few adorable shots of that beautiful girl!




Jason really wanted to take the boat out onto the water, so he, Chris and Grandpa braved the frigid temps and put the boat in. They even made it out onto Lake Michigan!


We decided to take some family pictures at the Holland Fish and Game Club. The weather was beautiful, and the people were pretty good looking too!

The boys, doin' their thing :)

A couple other highlights that we don't have pictures of were the tapas night we shared with the Marlink family and Jason and Kim and a dinner out to a nice restaurant with Jason and Kim. We were blessed by the time we were able to have with our family, and especially with Jason! We are looking forward to a visit from him and Kim soon!
