Linc is 3!

Lincoln turned 3 on Memorial Day! The day started with presents of course. Yay for new trains and a "Strider" balance bike!

We wanted to do something really fun for Linc's birthday so we met up with our good friends, Dave and Heidi Munion, who were in town for the week, and went to Thanksgiving Point's new Children's Curiosity Museum. Since it was Memorial Day the place was packed. It was nuts, but it was still so much fun. The boys had a blast!

Linc loved the airplane!

It was a hot hot day, so after the museum we got slurpees and headed home to play in the pool! Lincoln's best friends are his aunts and uncles so of course they came over later for cupcakes and ice cream. They also spoiled Linc with some balloons and presents too. He sure had a good day!

Lincoln is my sweet, independent, little man. He loves to give squeezes and kisses. He sure loves his family too. Lately Linc has turned a little mischievous. In April when my parents were visiting, he popped the screen out of an open window upstairs and climbed onto the roof! We found him hanging onto the windowsill with one hand just talking to the birds...the little stink!!

We sure love our Lincoln!


We were lucky enough to have the Quigley's come to town in May. They came just in time for my 27th birthday! Yay!

While they were here Em and Shane took Sean, Charlie, and Koby ziplining. They have been spoiling Koby with all the "extreme" sports they let him participate in. Lincoln and Koby loved having their cousins come visit. I can't wait until we live closer to cousins. Linc and Charlie have finally been getting along and enjoying playing together. Koby and Charlie have very similar personalities and feed off of eachother. When they get together they are crazy-haha.  "Baby Audri", as the boys still call her, is as sweet as ever! She sure is a cutie too.

For my birthday, James stayed home to play with us! It's always a good day when we have him home. We went swimming with Rach and her kids at the Quigley's club house. Being 9 months pregnant, I just sat and watched, but it sure was fun - even with the rain. In the evening The Finch's, the Quigley's, and the Ehlert's came over for some ice cream cake. It was a fun day!

And it turned out that Audri's swim diaper was actually a Pull-up...haha! Check out this poor girl...

Here are some other random pictures from May...

Koby insisted on wearing a bow-tie one day.

Lincoln has developed quite the love for trains.

Koby won't eat chicken, but he loves fish eggs!
