Fun with the girls

While our SIL Kate and our nieces have been home from Nebraska for a few weeks we have been enjoying some time with them. We were at mom and dad Meeuwsen's pool the past two Sundays and had a lot of fun swimming with them. Here are some pics of those days.
Karinda had Trey just a giggling was hilarious.

Carter ADORES the girls. It's so sticken cute.
Posing by the pool.

Me and the boys went to the street performers with them this past week too....I couldn't believe how crazy busy it was. We also went to the Whitecaps for the ZFS party on Saturday night with them. We are definitely going to miss them this next month but thankfully they will be home for some fun things at the end of this month. We will be ready for them to be back for a visit!

Trey at 4 months

We had Trey's 4 month appt. on Monday. He weighed in at 14 lbs. 4 oz. and was 25 1/2 inches. He was 30th percentile for weight and 70th for height. We do have to keep a watch on one of his eyes as it sometimes turns in further than the other and doesn't follow as quickly as the other one all the time...the Dr. said sometimes it follows perfectly and is straight and other times it doesn't, so she said to give it a few months. I had the same thing as a baby so it wouldn't surprise me if one of our kiddos was cursed with my bad eye gene! He is a super happy baby....sleeps from about 8:30-7:30 each night and sleeps the day away too! He is a thumb sucker like his daddy kiddos love their fingers but it makes for content babies!Here's a picture of Carter at almost four months...looks like he hung on to his hair a little longer! He weighed the exact same at 4 months but was .75 inches longer so Trey seems a little pudgier. Bring on the baby rolls! :)

Coast Guard Fest 2010

Last Friday I headed to Grand Haven to hang out with mom Meeuwsen for the day with the boys. We went to the art fair and walked downtown then hung out on the boat while the boys napped. When dad Meeuwsen got back from work we went downtown to go on the rides. Saturday morning we got up and headed there right away to go for breakfast. After breakfast we walked down by the water for a bit. Carter got this balloon animal made for him. Trey spent most of the weekend in the Baby Bjorn and was happy as a lark. He was even giggling watching the rides go was so funny.
We were shocked when we seen this huge ship come in. During Coast Guard of all things it was crazy they would come in on such a busy day. Carter loved it!
We were going to go to Hanky Pank bay but Brian wanted to swim in clean water :) so we hung out on the south side of the pier for the afternoon. It was nice and relaxing and the boys napped great on the boat.

Brian and Carter ready to jump in. Trey just chilled out in his Bebe pod seat.
The rides were definitely the highlight of the weekend. I was surprised how many Carter could go on. After Brian's dad took Carter on a bunch of them on Friday I told Brian we had to go back on Saturday so he could see how much Carter loved them. Does this face say enough? I think we have a roller coaster lover on our hands!

We had a great view of the fireworks from the boat and decided to wake Carter up to see them. He had never seen fireworks and let me just say his face was cute! We had a great weekend thanks to mom and dad! Unfortunately the weekend wasn't without incident of a trip to the emergency room and a couple expensive lost items in the lake. But the weather was great and we still had a blast!

3 month pics

Yesterday we went to have Trey's 3 month pics taken by Jenn of Captured Memories. Trey just kind of stared at the camera but I think she got some adorable shots! Here's a sneak peek she sent me.

Fair Fun

A few weeks ago Brian was at the Berlin Fair buying animals so Trey stayed with Grandma Mary Ann and Carter and I went to go see daddy. We went in every animal barn and I think Carter touched EVERY animal. He was so fun to watch and we had a great night together.
Checking out all the tractors.
Milking the cow!
The following week we headed to the Ottawa County Fair with my mom and dad. Trey got to hang out with my cousin Allyssa and we got to take Liam along for the day. We first started off at the animal barns. Brian bought Jacob Nienhuis's pigs for ZFS so we went and checked out all the animals daddy bought.
The boys did great in the double stroller and thought it was fun to face each other...I definitely LOVE this stroller so far. They had fun petting all the animals. This goat thought Liam had treats in this cup holder and proceeded to put his whole face in it. :)
Cute, cute!
At the petting area with Grandma. Carter will reach out and touch anything and this tiny goat was oh so cute!
Of course the boys had to sit on the tractors and check them out.
Waiting for the horse races to start. My dad raced harness horses for most of my life so this brought back many memories of going to the horse races! We made it through about 3 races and the boys had ants in their pants.
Looking forward to more fair days this year yet!
