Piper's 4th Birthday Party - Frozen

For Piper's fourth birthday, she wished for a Frozen party. Her and her princess friends wanted to dress up like princesses. What they didn't know was that Queen Elsa from Arendelle would stop by to celebrate.

Purdue's NCAA Basketball Tournament

Prior to Spring Break, we were luck to have Purdue's first round NCAA Tournament game in Denver, CO at the Pepsi Center. Unfortunately, the outcome wasn't exactly what we were expecting.
Yet, this was the first time Ryder and Tagger were able to see a Purdue basketball game in person.
