Happy Memorial Day! We're spending these next couple days in Spring Lake and lovin' every minute of it. We had a fantastic lunch of chicken, veggies and salmon (caught by my [Jess's] Pa) on the grill, then ventured out on a relaxing boat ride to Grand Haven. It was a balnket-covered ride, but we arrived back sun-kissed and freshly windblown - felt like summer!
The big project in the evening was putting together 200 mini-bags of popcorn (those good 'ol Foremost bindery days were coming back - speedy, repetitive assembly!). My mom and dad are walking in the Standale Memorial Day Parade tomorrow with a bunch of people from our home church (Remembrance Church, where I grew up) and handing out bags of popcorn closed with chip clips that had our church info on it. Nice! Mike and I are headed out in the morning to watch 'em - I'm sure it will bring back memories of the 'ol Standale stomping grounds!
Here's a pic of the efficient and extremely effective Popcorn Club:
Mom, Andee, Mike, Jess = Scoopers and Clippers
Tim = Bag Opener
Brooke = Arranger/Organizer
Dad = Manager
And here's a pic standing on Mom and Dad Oo's deck! WOW! Dad's building a campfire, then Fruitport Fireworks in a little bit!
