Crazy Busy Having Fun

This weekend we were living it up and checking things off.

We started our weekend a few hours early when Kevin joined us to head off to Ionia for The Big Ticket Festival.  It was the perfect combination of mud & sunshine, musicians & songs.  The kids were really looked forward to seeing tobyMac, but we all enjoyed hearing Group 1 Crew (and many other groups) while we were waiting. 
Outdoor Concert: check.

We have been running low on our favorite peanut butter partner - homemade strawberry jam.  Thanks to Gram we had quarts of delicious fresh berries ready to mash, sugar, and gel.  Stirring our ingredients into jam was a fun project for Gavin and Anne Hope

Thanks to Celebration Cinema and the Family Hope Foundation our family enjoyed a special showing of the just released Cars Movie 2.  We loved the action, humor, and clever animation. After the movie the kids filled up on Cars Movie 2 themed juice boxes, fruit snacks, and macaroni. 
A Theatre Movie: check.

While celebrating a special someone's 30th! birthday we walked our favorite board walk to visit the Grand Haven lighthouse. Hopefully this is just the first of many summer beach walks.

One of our favorite neighbors also celebrated a milestone birthday and invited us to join the party.
