lake michigan, ashlyn's first game, and more princess obessions!!!!

So to save on doing more than one post I decided to throw them ALL together! So bare with me!!!
Aaron had a long weekend so we decided to take advantage of it and explore past the ghetto a little bit. We had heard that the beach towns on lake michigan were beautiful... so we packed up the kids and headed out the three hours it took us to get to Lake michigan. The kids were really excited to go to the beach one last time before the dreaded cold sets in, and
we totally lucked out! It was 85 degrees!!! So we went start to the lake. It was so beautiful...and I am now happy to admit that not all of michigan sucks. The kids had so much fun playing in the sand and splashing around in the water. we saw the big red lighthouse, which was a highlight for me! Ate lunch in a dutch bakery on main street. And finished the weekend off with culvers and a movie in the back seat... We wished we could of stayed longer but after one night in the hotel with three kids...we were ready to have them sleep in their own bed!!!
This has become my signature shot of the girls.every time we go to the beach or a lake...ok any body of water I try to get them to sit long enough for me to take this picture. I dont know why I was like the way it looks.

OK so on the way back to the hotel we saw this neighborhood with really cute houses. Aaron and I love looking at houses and picking out what we like and dislike...and also to get ideas... if we ever decide to build a house ourselves...well we were driving thru gawking at all the beautiful houses and we turned the corner and I made aaron stop so I could take a picture. I loved this house!!! So maybe some day I will live on a lake in a house like this one!!! Well...a girl can dream! Aaron liked this one! Which one do you like better?

Ashlyn's First Soccer Game

Once again the good thing is she is having fun! And she looks
really cute in her uniform...which is points in my book. But she has not improved since practice. Oh well she loved being on a team with hannah. So after the game we decided to take the kids to ice cream...and I think they liked that more than playing in the game, well everyone but zach... he dropped his ice cream cone on the ground and spent the rest of the time pouting while we all rolled on the ground laughing at him.And alysse thought she had a cone too and ate part of the cup before we realized what she was doing and took it away from her! What a way to end the night.

Alysse the drama _Queen!

i thought that with time we would see the end of the princess obession but it seems to have gotten worse. It seems that detroit has worn off on alysse. And she is now going for ghetto fabulous! With her leporard pants ...which she picked out and her sexy jewelry! I dont know when this is ever going to end but it sure is cute! And if you look closely she is carrying around a foot skelton that aaron used in med. school. She loves that thing and she has named it "buddy"

your girls are just so cute.

1.i'm jealous you got to go to a beach....even if it was in michigan

2.i love the shot of the girls sitting next to each other.

3. I don't know which house I like more...I'm leaning towards the first...but I like some elements of the second. We've been house hunting with an agent and though it is fun, it's over whelming that's for sure!

4.Glad you finally admitted your crush on edward. Gotta say he's still growing on me but i'm sure onceI see the movie it will be a full blown obessive crush on him. Wish you could come with us to the midnight showing....*tear*

It looks like you had such a fun trip to the beach. I've decided to take my kids to Pittsburgh next weekend...all alone - I must be desperate for a little getaway if I'm willing to take all 3 of them alone on an overnighter. On Friday we'll hit up IKEA and the Childrens museum and then on Saturday we'll go to Boo at the Zoo and Aquarium with some friends.

Anyway, I like the first house a little bit better than the second, but I'd take either one!
