A couple of weeks ago we had a biking adventure with a friend from church. We all met in the church parking lot (which was empty) and let the kids race around on their trikes.
Ryder, Kaydence, Rustin, Kassidy and Kyndall wait to go into McDonald's. They have such a great time on the playplace. Now that they are old enough to sit (or stand as the case may be) in a booth instead of needing a high chair, taking them out to eat has been soooo much easier!
Never one to be outdone, Kaiya decided to create her own adventure. After seeing me go to a book club with my friends, she decided she wanted to host her own book club. She chose the book "Good Morning, Gorillas" (a Magic Treehouse Book) and invited several of her friends to read the book and come to the discussion. I helped her make a list of discussion questions and we made "gorilla food" for refreshments---the book said that gorillas eat leaves, twigs, flowers, and berries, so we had pretzel sticks (twigs), blackberries, and edible flowers.
These don't really qualify as adventures, but the pictures were cute so I decided to throw them in anyway :-) We had the missionaries from our church over for dinner on a few different occasions and I made them take pictures with the kids.
Jayson's birthday was this past Sunday. He turned 36! I remember when I used to think that was old :-)
