Notice this is a Costco cake. (Mom didn't have time to make a cake this year.) But Evan picked it out. All it said on it was DAD so I told Pat to have them add Happy Birthday on top. I should have told him to add 'Happy Birthday Evan'. Now it just says 'Happy Birthday DAD' and it's not Pat's birthday nor does he play golf. Birthday cake fail. Sorry Evan- I owe you a Lego Star Wars cake!
Right now he is in swim lessons and having a hard time of it. He mostly sits outside of the pool or clings to the side. We'll see as the summer goes on if he gets any better. Swimming is another thing he's determined not to do. That and riding a bike. I'm pretty sure that by next year all these issues will resolve themselves... he's just at an age where he's still a bit afraid. Sam used to be super afraid, but we just waited and this year he's determined to best everyone.
Evan does great at practicing his piano, and loves playing in forts and made his own bow and arrow. He has the best laugh!
Evan has longish curly-ish hair right now and I love it. He gets himself dressed everyday including Sundays and does a great job. He even gets his teeth super white and combs his hair! He looks sharp! But he also has a style all his own:

Post script: We didn't leave Pat out for Father's Day. I don't have any pictures since it was Sunday morning and those are always hectic... but we made a list of things we like about our dad and then bought things to go along with it. For example: He helps us get in bed/pajama pants. Or he gives me piggy back rides/Pass the pigs game.
Fixes car, works in the yard, helps around the house, ties our ties, is good at camping, etc. We filled a whole basket! And because of my calling we made and passed out a little gift to all the fathers at church too. And the kids sang to all the dads. In Leia's class they gave candy to the dads too!
