Sam's 3rd Birthday

Sam's good friend Levi Green's birthday happens to be a day before Sam's, March 26th.

Yes we have a live fire beside us and a fresh tulip in the middle of March, thank you Paradox!

Jessica Larsen, Erin Tracy, Mandy Baron and me. What a fun group to go with. Thanks for letting us tag along! 
Leave it to Scout Master Nate Larsen to hook us up with easy mac before the kids crash in the car on the way home. They were experienced and knew just how to avoid Switzerland's expensive food. Yes, he brought the stove to heat up the water.  It was a very fun trip!! 
Sam's favorite part was falling off the sled with dad.  The sledding wasn't for the ligh…
