Here's a little video of the kids and Kurtis dancing to the song "Cinderella" by Steven Curtis Chapman. The kids (especially Kurtis) love this song and will stop whatever they are doing and start dancing.

Sunday afternoon was very windy, so the waves were larger and there were many more of them. Jaren had a great time riding the waves in after Uncle Howard would pull him out a ways. He did get flipped a couple of times, but that didn't bother him at all...it just made it a little more exciting.
Not even half gone...but went in the garbage!

Well, we just recently got back from a very fun family vacation in Michigan. It was 5 nights of camping at PJ Hoffmaster State Park. I think after cleaning out the camper that we brought more than our fair share of sand home with us. :) There were 4 families and tons of fun to be had. Since our kids were the youngest, that got spoiled plenty by the great aunts, uncles and cousins. We spent our mornings at The Great Harvest Bread Co. (may I highly recommend checking this place out...the bread is awesome) and then the afternoons were spent at the beach making sand castles, burying each other, climbing the sand dune and playing in the waves. We also went to Michigan Adventure for an entire day (11-9). The kids were exhausted by the time we got back to the campgrounds at 10 pm, but it was very much worth it and they didn't complain once. Bethany was our little adventurous one. She'd go on any ride when asked and was highly disappointed when she wasn't tall enough. She didn't like all the rides once they got started and we heard many times from her, "We shouldn't go on this ride...it's not very fun!" Jaren on the other hand was very cautious about what he went on and would watch the ride closely before deciding. There were a few times I tricked him into going on rides he didn't like. :)
Some highlights included...

Bethany loves to play dress up. She has a few fancy dresses, hats, jewelry & now a wig to add to the collection. We had fun the other day dressing up and Jaren was kind enough to take our picture.
