My April Fools...


Wow, 6 years ago this past Sunday was the anniversary of the birth of the Frumpy Houses' youngest child...Liyah (or LiLi as she is graciously called, or Liyah Gail as she is called when not listening)!

SIX!! I can hardly believe it! Hardly believe that 6 years ago we were in Tennessee. Working with MD clients, running 2 households, caring for staffing problems...oh, those were the days (not).

We moved to Michigan when Li was a baby, because that would bring us closer to family. Everyone needs family to help raise kids, right?!

But Sunday, oh Sunday, we celebrated a birthday...a little girlies birthday!

We started out with some birthday pancakes for breakfast....

They were a big hit!!

After Sunday School and church we headed south about an hour with the 2 Frumpy girlies and Liyah's bestest friend from school...Mia!
I read on another mommy blog about this new place that opened in the Grand Rapids area, Jester's Court. A child's dream come true, with inflatables and playscapes to  beat all inflatable and playscape places!!!!

The birthday girl in the middle doesn't look at all excited...yeah right!!

It was soooo huge!
I couldn't see the end of it all!!!

This area was probably the coolest thing! A projector on the ceiling showed images on the floor....the kids either had to stomp on things (like jelly beans, bubbles, balloons & the less humane things like mice and frogs) or kick a soccer ball into a goal. They came back to this time and again!

We were there by 2:15 pm and only left when they were getting ready to close for the night!!! What a blast, what a great birthday and what a fun time with family and friends!
 Much to Liyah's delight we got to celebrate her birthday with cake and ice cream and presents on Monday night too...since Grandpa and Grandma didn't get back from Florida til 1 am Monday morning!!!

Looking forward to another kiddies birthday in November, glad I spaced these babies out!!!!
