A FUNTASTIC DAY

The kids and I went to Woodhaven today to have a play date with two friends of mine from work and their kids. First we went to this cool place called, "Funtastic." This huge play area never looks the same because the kids are able to rearrange all the furniture, and they love doing so.
Annabelle, Aliyah and Kylie, having a blast together.
She followed them around the whole time and did whatever they did.Then we went to Stevie B's for lunch and played games.

The candy claw was a huge hit for all.Michael told Aliyah to put the money in and he would get he some candy too.
Hoop Stars, Annabelle and Michael.

Michael's favorite game.
He did pretty well with a wicked side arm.Sweet Kylie got everyone matching bracelets with all her earned tickets.

Good friends and good times make for a good day!

My Kids' First Circus

We were going to sit here...


but daddy went to go get his big umbrella so
we could sit here with shade. What a smart daddy.

Cracker Jacks, Animals, Sno Cones, Clowns, peanuts and amazing acts of talent all included.
A fun time was had by all.

Our First Visit To Turtle Cove


Aliyah gave the turtle a hug on the way in.
Aliyah didn't want any part of the water so Caroline took Michael on the river.
Eventually she went on the river with me, sorry no pics.
Entering the play scape on the splash pad.Michael had a BLAST on this splash pad in the park.
Taking a break to have lunch.
Please don't smile for the camera if you have food in your mouth. Gross.

My Kids

The kids just loved playing in front of the industrial fan today. I just laughed watching them, well actually at Aliyah because she just couldn't keep covered for nothing.
They are just too cute.

My Little Artist


Micheal has started drawing from looking at other objects.
I must say, he is quite the artist. He gets that from his dad.

Happy Father's Day

Daddy and his children.
What a happy group as we celebrate daddy today.


A nice picture for daddy.

We treated daddy to his favorite coney island in Detroit.

Then off to Daddy's favorite ice cream place, Cold Stone.
We got a kick out of watching Aliyah eat her ice cream, she was really enjoying the cotton candy flavor and as always sharing her dad's chocolate forest.
The kids also sang a cute song to their dad. Well, actually, when they went to perform for their dad Aliyah chose not to. No surprise there. So here is the recording when she did.

This girl........

you can't take you eye off her for a moment! While I was using the bathroom, Michael went into the kitchen to get a drink and forgot to close the gate. My little escapee took advantage of the opportunity and proceeded to make her way downstairs, stroller and all!

Micheal's Last Day of Kindergarten

Michael with his teacher, Ms. Telep.

The last day of school was a half day. PM students attended and AM students were invited with their parents. This day was a celebration of their promotion and of all the summer birthdays. Kids with summer birthdays brought ice cream and everyone else brought toppings.

Waiting in line as toppings are added.

"THE" SUNDAE
Yuck!
In line to get their share. These are some brave kids!
Doesn't it look yummy?! NOT!
Surprisingly, a lot of ice cream and toppings went to waste.
Too much, even for kids.
