In the spring, we had the chance to raise four chicks. It was a ton of fun and really cool. Claire was in 100%, taking care of feeding, watering and letting the chicks out of their cage for some attention. At the end of several weeks, we got to send them back. Chicks are cool, but they are also loud, messy and smelly at times. This was a perfect set up.
Also in the spring, the small one turned three. We had the traditional party at the zoo. This year Milena requested a Brewers cake. Her uncles like to think its because she's already a fan for life at age three but I know its because the logo happens to be her favorite shade of blue. And that the logo actually has an 'M' at the top doesn't hurt either.
There was a trip to Florida which my parents tagged along for. It was a lot of fun to spend the week with them. We didn't tell the girls they were coming until they showed up at the airport.
And there have been two trips to Door County. We'll be going there more often because we just bought a camper there, set up on a permanent site. We all look a lot like this while we are there:
And sometimes we take a break from that and go zip-lining, sunset watching or ice cream eating. So, really we mostly look like the above.
