More Photos...

Had to include a few more photos...especially enjoy the "like Father Like Son" sequence. I think Anders has a little more air in his jump :). Our adventures with Siri and Jillian needed a little more photo time as well, and I love seeing the difference of eye color in Anders and Kate in that closeup...they look so similar, but have such different eyes.

We have a six year old!

It's been a while since I've updated and there have been several birthday parties celebrating Anders Cole's Golden Birthday and many other wonderful activities as well.

Anders' first party was on the day...his Grandparents and four of his 15 cousins were able to celebrate with him. Anders' second party was with his preschool friends, Grandma Betty and Grandpa Bud, Aunt Molly and cousin Siri, at the Pizza Hut in River Falls. Third party was a small party with Julie, Abby, Libby, Katie and Brad to celebrate May birthdays in our families. The fourth party was a celebration of baptism at Grandma Betty's house. The whirlwind of parties is over, but we will never forget the wonderful memories and fun had at our parties!

Visiting Grandma and Grandpa B during the first week of June was a big highlight of the month. We also enjoyed camping with the Kniers in June, camping with the Kyle Blomgren's and running a half marathon in June. Never thought I would enjoy running so much, but I have been bitten by the running bug! Last weekend Katie was introduced to parades and the candy that goes with them. Our family attended the Railroad Days parade in St. James and Katie took a tumble and scunned her nose running after a tootsie roll. We also were able to watch Stuart in production of Alice in Wonderland and attend the Pierson family reunion...busy month, but very special.

Kids are growing and changing daily. Anders is busy with t-ball and soccer. Kate just finished swimming lessons and is saying new words and developing more of a personality...much to Mom's chagrin.

Enjoy your summer and we will keep this posted hopefully a bit more often to journal happenings in our lives...

swimming in Lindstrom

Last night, Osten, Brad and I drove to Lindstrom, Minnesota to see the River Falls Wildcats face Spring Lake Park and the Wildcats of Chisag...
