Summer started a little early with a weekend trip to Yellowstone. Since there were no girls they did multiple hikes and watched a lot of animals. They saw cute spring babies and cottontail rabbits, but no wolves – Sorry Andrew, maybe next time.

The day before Andrew's birthday he had his first friend party. He invited 4 friends and one cousin and randomly, one of Mack's friends invited himself. Luckily, I had a little heads up that he might come, but it was still a little funny. The party was animal themed (shocker).
Andrew's curiosity teaches me patience and helps me think about "why?". His energy keeps me looking for ways to keep him busy. His passion has taught me way more about animals than I ever thought I'd know. He challenges me to become the parent he needs. I love his smile and how he can talk a mile a minute when he is excited. I love hearing about his day and listening to him try to reason himself out of trouble. He loves Lily and sincerely wants me to have another baby because he thinks she is so fun and cute. He is a fabulous big brother and we love him so much! Happy Birthday!

Kate played soccer for the first time this spring. She surprised us all with her commitment. Even in severe wind she stayed with her team and ran around on the field when it was her turn. She had a tendency to avoid the ball but she had fun. Here she is receiving her medal and playing with her teammate, Alissa, and Emily. Yes, these are lame pictures, but at least I have some.
Three games every Saturday was totally wild but I was so glad they all had the chance. Emily says she wants to play next year...we'll see.
