Extreme Gyms, Parties, Pajamas, and Sweat Treats

Landon started gymnastics (Thanks, Grandma and Grandpa!) on Monday at Extreme Gymnastics USA.

Quianna, a young lady from our branch, came over and helped Hallie out around the house while Mike was at work on Tuesday and Wednesday. We got some snow on Thursday that continued off and on with accompanying cold weather through the weekend. Looks like winter has finally arrived. Let’s hope it just plans to stay for a short visit!  

On Friday afternoon, we went to the Woodward Avenue Candy Shop. We had read on the store’s website that each day has a theme, so we took the kids in their fuzzy footed PJ’s. Landon got a kick out of being out of the house and dressed for bed, which added to the fun of our visit. Right as we entered, we were warmly greeted by Janie, the owner. She explained how she wants every guest who comes into the store to feel right at home. She was very attentive and positive, and we had a great experience.

Saturday dawned in a blanket of snow. Mike and Landon shoveled and played in it until it got too cold.

Our friend Bryan celebrated his 8th birthday with a party at Continental Lanes in Roseville, a perfect venue for a family of avid bowlers.

While the rest of the crew partied, Mike attended an all-day meeting. Katelyn looked after the kids that night while we went out to dinner for our anniversary. Hard to believe we’ve already been married 13 years!
