Sweet Princess!

Elsiana enjoying Sloppy Joes!

First time with pigtails!

Our Sweet Princess is growing more and more every day. She is definitely asserting her independence and showing what she wants, when she wants it. We thank God for the precious gift of our little girl and our boys. What an awesome God!

Over Memorial Day weekend we had the opportunity to go up to our cabin in Adams-Friendship. Aside from winterization difficulties with the cabin, the Lord provided us with a beautiful weekend of weather. We were able to spend time outside at the county park down the road from our place. The boys and Elsiana enjoyed playing on the playground, swinging and playing Bocce Ball. Both Isaiah and Ben are such good big brothers to Elsiana. "Isaiah" was her first word! Any time her swing would slow down, she would call to him to get her going again:). We are so blessed to have 3 wonderful children. Truly, gifts from God.

On April 19th (a warm day for Wisconsin) we had a chance to have a cookout and play some Ladder Ball at Riverside Park in Watertown. We enjoyed fellowship with a couple from church, the Tiedtkes, and one of their sons, Simon. Isaiah also had his friend, Trent, from school along. Elsiana especially enjoyed the swing at the park:).
