Lauren's birthday party was pizza at the park with her friend Emery and my brothers' family. We let off sky lanterns, like in the Tangled movie, it was so much fun. We didn't get ANY pictures of the sky lanterns, but the kids each got to decorate their own and let one off. They are several feet tall with a fire ball inside, so we scared the park security officers and only got 3 successfully flying out of 10... but they were pretty to watch.
Bryn and Madelyn spend most of their days outside jumping on, off, and around things in the backyard. This water barrel has been a recent obstacle course toy, but more recently, the cause for a broken arm.
Katlyn has been very busy practicing her dance routines every day and participating in every extra club, fundraiser, etc. at school. I only have video clips of her dancing, no pics-sorry. Caleb is no longer drooling everywhere, but until he starts walking he is just a big dust mop. He has 8 teeth now and loves to say easy words and put the basketball in the hoop (over-the-door one). He is a happy baby and very cuddly. Madelyn can't wait for her 5th birthday in a few weeks. I hope it lives up to her expectations... Lauren gets baptized this weekend and is so excited to have that special day with family coming in to be there for her.
Here is the troop:
