Turnip Sinki

Our baby, according to the website that sends me a weekly email, is the size of a turnip. Nothing brings on the proud and honored glow of a mother-to-be like thinking of her baby as a turnip.

The Sinki's had a great weekend. We went to the Kite Festival in Grand Haven on Saturday. Willa liked the "dancing kites" (there are music coordinated routines; it's serious stuff, this kite festival) and the "big sandbox" (that would be Lake Michigan's beach). Jim and I learned that feeding a toddler peanut butter and jelly at the beach probably requires a higher water temp. for a comfortable dunking. Because baby wipes do not clean off the sand/jelly epoxy.

Later that night we went to Little Mexico for dinner. The mariachi band was there, and Willa was riveted. She stared at them motionless the whole time they played in our room. When they walked on to a different part of the building, she wanted to follow.

Sunday brought us to Blanford Nature Center for some frog spotting and a nice, long walk in the woods. Willa picked up sticks and rocks along the way.

That does sound like a nice weekend. Very much so.

I love Little Mexico. Mmm.

Let me know when the baby is the size of a Dwight Schrute Beet. Beets are good for you. Beets, bears. ...Battlestar Galactica.

Isn't the Kite Fesitval wonderful!? This is the first year we didn't go in about 10 years. My dad is an avid stunt kiter and created a website for the premier kite company in the US Prism Kites and we're good friends with the owners. The festival is fantastic, wish it got more press so more people knew about it! :-) Sounds like you guys are having fun!
