Family Vacation 2014 Day 3, 4 & 5

We had a lot of fun the rest of vacation too! We went to my other favorite place Casey's Bakery one morning for a treat.

We all wore Orange on Saturday to cheer for the Netherlands in the World Cup.
We ate amazing food and desserts all weekend long.

Lori and Christine made a bunch of Strawberry Jam from the strawberries we picked earlier in the week. It is delicious.
Some of the little ones went fishing again

We borrowed this from the neighbors who owned it one day and had a lot of fun.
We made paper bag parachutes with superhero figurines and plastic bags. Uncle Chad even got out the big ladder to throw them from.

Then there was the water slide...HOW FUN!
We had a campfire:

We did some sparklers and Andy burned his finger:

Livia was super cute with the hula hoop and her falling out braids:
Christine and Jay were twins one day:

We played outside with bubbles:
We tried our hand at some archery with a bows and arrows my dad happened to have in his garage.
The guys also did some shooting
and we played frisbee golf in the park. (no pictures from that)
There were plenty of tractor rides (and sitting on the tractor)
Andy chased a bird around for 5 minutes until he actually touched it!
The kids had some breakfast outside.
We hung out, ran around and laughed
Finally, we had a little church service in the living room for ourselves on Sunday. Grandma read some childrens Bible stories and stories that she related to Bible stories
And here is a short clip from worship team rehersal:

 And we did kid awards before everyone left just for fun...
THANK YOU Grandpa and Grandma!
