As has become tradition, Leah trick or treats for half the time, then we come home to hand out candy. We also got a quick trunk or treat in first, with a horse ride and s’mores!
Leah’s team improved a ton during the season, and the girls had a lot of fun as well. Here’s the proof:
I got to attend some of Aly’s 7th grade volleyball matches this year, which was quite a bit of fun. She really started to enjoy it by the end of the season, which makes her volleyball-loving parents happy. Here are some pictures I captured.
We were lucky to have Maggie G come stay with us for a few days in Holland. The three girls had lots of fun – as we did we two adults.
We descended upon the small town of Hartville, OH for Dan and Kate’s wedding in mid-June – my cousin Rick is Kate’s dad.
My brother Doug died last. He was diagnosed with Stage IV colon cancer late in 2017.
Please excuse the language, but #fuckcancer. Do what you can to help fight cancer. Raise funds, donate, or make sure you get the appropriate checkups at the appropriate times.
I haven’t done a good job of posting pictures from my last few trips in Michigan, so here we go. First up are pictures from the end of February/early March, followed by pictures from the week of Aly’s 12th birthday.
Here’s the tale of our day at Epcot, the Chef Mickey’s at the Contemporary Resort, then Magic Kingdom, then a late dinner at Mara at Animal Kingdom Lodge.
This is Leah’s 7th birthday, told in pictures.
Here are my favorite pictures I took in December 2017:
