We're frequently asked if Ryla and Noah are twins. It's easy to see how this happens since their just barely over a year apart and almost the same size. The best part about them being so close is just how close they are! These two adore each other. They spend so much time with one another and they just treat each other well. On this special day, Noah was afraid to walk across the grates by himself, so Ryla kindly held his hand as they strolled across the scary grates to the library.

Time with cousins was only a small part of our Spring Break trip. They had so much fun spending time with Nana and Papa. It's no surprise that when we showed up, Nana was ready and waiting with ample crafts and games.
It truly was a typical Kansas Spring. One day we were having popcicles on the porch, and the next we were catching snowflakes in the front yard!
The fun, the craziness, the pure joy of having hours of uninterrupted fun with cousins! This year the stars aligned and all of the cousins had Spring Break at the same time. Our three were thrilled, as usual, to spend a few days with Ben, Harrison, and Lauren. They thought it was even more special that their older cousin Ali was able to come spend some time with all the littles!
It was so much fun to have my good friend Ryla come spend a few days with us! Our Ryla always thinks it is hilarious that there's someone else with the same name as her. Both the boys have such common names that they're used to it, but it takes Ryla a while to remember that she's not Ryla the one and only.

Ryla loves gymnastics. I know that you know this already. We talk about it, post pics, share videos, and tell stories all the time about her gymnastics obsession. So this one's less for you and more for me. I know there'll be a day when she no longer lives gymnastics, and that's ok. But I want to be able to remember smile and excitement that this brings to her, and I wanted to see just how much of her day and activities were converted into gymnastic adventures.

Aidan loves school. He loves to be with friends, learn new things, and be on his own. But of all the things he loves about school, field day is his absolute favorite. This year, he was pretty excited that mom, dad, brother, and sister got to come watch the glorious events.
