One day a week I'm hoping to treat the kids to a "summer fun day!" These days would include fun things to do around Holland....like Dutch Village! Which is just where we headed for part of this weeks fun day. We also had a picnic and played at a park and then headed downtown to the splashpad for a little water fun! I'd say our first summer fun day was a success:)Our first ride....pumper cars, Will's favorite!
June 12 was the kids' dance recital! We arrived just 20 minutes before our dancers were to report backstage and were the first people in line to enter the auditorium:) I wanted to make sure we got good seats seeing that this is the only year both kids would be performing! Will was so excited, he couldn't wait to get his tap shoes on (and he didn't want any help!)Will and his little buddies were superheroes dancing to "Help". As you can see Will was Spiderman:) He did a great job watching Miss Marie and kept a smile on his face throughout his whole routine. Watching him I couldn't help but cry...it was so rewarding!Great job Will!Kailyn was a sailor and danced to "Yellow Submarine". We couldn't be more proud of her and what she has learned this year! Taking a bow.....job well done Kailyn!!!
