Emily's First Plant

Emily learned how to grow a plant from a seed at preschool. She brought it home and we had to replant it. She takes very good care of her plant and is always concerned about watering it- we're surprised she hasn't drown it yet!
Allison had to watch the action. She follows Emily everywhere.

Michael's 31st Birthday

Michael celebrated his 31st birthday on May 14th. Last year he was in the desert for it so we were very excited to get to celebrate with him this year. I made him a bananas foster cheesecake because those are two of his favorite things. The girls were very excited to blow out all those candles.

Adventures in Hiking

Since moving to Colorado, we have taken more time to enjoy the outdoors. We tried hiking a short trail with the girls and I'm not sure they're ready to be hikers! Allison ran the whole time but was easily distracted by every dog that passed by and Emily wanted to quit about 5 minutes down the trail. They love to have picnics so that was probably the highlight of the day. I think future hiking trips are going to have to be kept pretty short for a while!
