Fun, fun and Father's Day

It's been too long since I updated! We have been super busy and having way too much fun! It's going to be so hard to go back to work next week. Last week we started the week off by going to the park in Allendale for a play group. We usually go to the Zeeland playgroup during the school year and during the summer they meet at various parks so we decided to check out the Allendale one since it's so close.

Carter had a blast!
Wednesday Carter went to daycare to play with his friends while I went to visit a co-worker that just had a baby named Noah. Trey was so excited for his play date! :) It was his first smile that I was able to catch on camera.
Thursday we went to Helder Park for the Zeeland playgroup. Here's Carter and Jacob swinging. They also made a craft and sang some fun songs.
Friday we headed downtown to the fountain with a BUNCH of girls and their kids. It was super fun. Unfortunately my camera battery died so I only got a couple of pics. Here's Carter and Liam checking it out. Definitely will be going back.
I keep telling Brian if he wants to keep me home then we are just going to have to have 3 kids! Ha, ha...

Saturday we headed down to South Haven for HarborFest. Mom and Dad Meeuwsen and all their boating friends were there for the weekend on their boats. Trey just chilled out in the stroller or on the boat.
As always we had fun watching the dragon boat races. One was a little weight heavy :) and took a couple of spills. Carter loved to watch them.
The big lake was to rough to go out on so Carter was content going for a few dinghy rides.

He met a friend Mason and he wanted to go for a ride so daddy took the little dudes for a spin. This guy was definitely the highlight of the day. Brian and I took Carter for a walk on the pier and seen this guy listening to his iPod and dancing away. It was hilarious; we just had to tape it. He was spotted 4 hours later STILL dancing!
Sunday night we had my family over for a steak dinner for Father's Day. Here's Grandpa and his boys.
Dad/Grandpa with his kids and grandkids. #3 to come in a month!
And of course daddy and his 'mini me' boys. :)

Another child blessed by God

Yesterday we had the privelege of welcoming Trey into the family of God by having him baptized. As you can see there were a LOT of little ones being was quite entertaining! This picture Jen took CRACKS me up b/c obviously something funny was said so it's cute to see everyone's reaction.
After church we had lunch at mom and dad Meeuwsen's house with our families.
Instead of a cake I decided to make cupcakes. When I was making them my BFF Kathy told me to make little flags for them...brilliant! Within minutes I created these, printed them and assembled them. And thanks to my other BFF Jen for letting me borrow her stand. Life is good with my two creative and talented friends! :)

Four generations on my side. Grandma DeJonge is the only grandparent I have left.

My two little men. We look forward to raising you as wonderful followers of Jesus! It's amazing how much they know at two already. Carter repeats our prayers when eating, knows that we read a Bible story before bedtime and sing Jesus Loves Me. So precious!
