Playing outside

Mowing the lawn

Claire really liked her new float. She is saying 'oooh'

We are so glad that spring is here. Our pool is full and ready to go. Claire and I tried to swim in it last week, but it is still too cold. She looked really cute in one of her new bathing suites. We have also really enjoyed our screen porch and lawn mower. The lawn mower and four-wheeler never shut off when Will and Daniel are around. Bucky takes them all around. Claire gets to go along and feels like a big girl. We hope you are enjoying the beautiful weather. Come on over for a horseback ride, cool swim, and nice swing.

Yes, that's right. Claire had TWO birthday parties. She is a very special little girl who has lots of great family and friends. We were able to share another great day on Saturday with out of town family and more friends. It was great! We were overwhelmed by the people who came to help us celebrate. It is very clear that a lot of people love and care about our daughter. We are so blessed to have you all. Thank you so much for loving our daughter. We had a great day, to say the least. Happy Birthday Claire!
