Wrapping Up Basketball

Due to the computer problems, I'll be wrapping up Trevor's last three basketball games in this one post. The lost to Washington on the first game (they're undefeated the last two years), they won a thrilling OT contest with Ojibwe, then lost to them in the first round of the playoffs the following week when Papa was up to watch. Trevor really played well those last few games, and has gotten so much better this season. He scored some points, and really used his size for rebounding and passing. He plans on playing next season in sixth grade, too.

Fun At The Griffins

Whoa, way behind due to the fact that our computer is acting crazy and crashing a lot! After our fun at the museum interacting with the dinos, we were off to Enza's Pizza for some great food and catching up with my friend Tom who I used to work with at Hot N Now back in Cadillac. Great food and great fun. Then we were off to the Grand Rapids Griffins hockey game, as they took on the San Antonio Rampage. We all got a free hockey statue coming in the door, and the kids always like free giveaways. The game was a tough one as the Griffs got roughed up, but we still had a super fun time. Brian was able to meet one of the mascots finally, too. I can't wait until we get to another game next year. The kids really love visiting Grand Rapids.

Walking With Dinosaurs

After the Whitecaps Open House we headed to downtown GR to the Van Andel Museum. The feature this time was the Dinosaur Unearthed! exhibit and the kids really loved it, especially little Brian. Trevor has always liked the dinos, too, and was interested in learning about them. Lily helped with Brian and learned a lot, also. It was a lot of fun, and the Jurassic Park theme kept running through my head for some reason...
