Happy Birthday, Alanna!

It's hard to believe that another year has gone by and Alanna is now 2. She has grown so much in the last year and is so talkative. Much more than what Caleb was at 2. It's fun to have conversations with her and even more fun to watch her and Caleb talk to one another.

Her choice of cake this year....a ducky cake. All day, she kept saying "Ducky Cake. Ducky Cake." It didn't turn out quite as well as I had hoped, but hey...I'm no professional.

Zoo Trip

For Alanna's birthday, Keith took her to the zoo. This was her first trip this year and she loved it! She loved petting the goats and seeing the penguins. Poor Caleb was stuck with me and Ryland. We'll have to be sure to get out there again before the summer ends.

4th of July

We spent our 4th of July with a parade in the morning. For the past 3 years, we've gotten together with friends and watched the parade that their neighborhood has. It doesn't last very long which is kind of nice for little ones.

Afterward we joined the Ritsema family at grandpa's boat. We didn't get pics of that because we forgot the camera. These days, we're lucky if we remember all 3 kids.

Happy Birthday, America!
