Holland Happening

Well....i took an unexpected break from blogging! Life has been a whirlwind the last couple of weeks and i just haven't found the time or energy to write. We are alive and well......i just feel like all i do is run run run lately! =)

This past weekend we participated in the Holland Happening celebration here in the town we live in! It is a celebration of our city's Dutch heritage and is lots of fun!! Saturday morning there was the annual parade which we have attended every year since we moved here! I 'heart' parades...I love the atmosphere, the excitement and seeing the creativity that goes into so many of the floats! This year Colby actually got to be in the parade and he was super excited!!! He walked with Mooving & Grooving, which is a local fitness center for kids that he has been taking classes at for a couple of years! Brayden and i sat with friends to watch the parade and had a great time! The weather was absolutely gorgeous and we couldn't have asked for a better morning!

Later in the afternoon we went to the carnival so that Colby could ride a few rides! He had a great time but i forgot the camera so i didn't get to snap any pictures of the fun! It was a fun day and the boys slept GREAT that night! (a plus for mommy!!) =) Holland Happening is just one of the many things I will miss about living here.....it is a great little town and we really enjoy it!

We've been keeping up with your blog for the last couple of months, and I have to say, I'm thrilled that you guys are going to be moving closer to home. I bet John's mom is thrilled! The boys are absolutely beautiful... and it looks like they're blessed with a phenomenal mom.
