May was busy getting back from my getaway trip then Mother's Day and end-of-school programs and events. I am always so ready for summer break by the time it arrives. And ready for school to start again after summer. :)

Cole's preschool did the cutest Mother's Day Tea with a program and refreshments. They made adorable bonnets that we all wore then brought us a flower and poem after singing to us. Those are some of the best moments. Cole actually sang this time!

Grey made a poster for school and I wanted to save it. I don't know why I can't rotate it. He is pretty funny.

We had a huge snowstorm that took down a few trees in our back yard. Luckly even though it fell onto the house there was no damage. I hated that tree anyways! It dropped leaves, twigs, berries and all kinds of stuff all over our deck.

We surprised the kids with their own Fire tablet. They loved them to say it mildly. This was the scene in our house until I implemented better rules.

The weather is finally getting nice enough that we can go for our walks again. It is the perfect way to pass time crazy time before bed.
Elise graduated kindergarten. She was adorable. They had a wonderful program designed just to make me cry! Full of pictures from the year and songs about kids growing up too quickly. Ugh. Those things break my heart. I just love them so much at this phase that I would love for time to slow down a little. They are so sweet and innocent and I hate thinking of the tough things in life that they will have to face. I love how happy this little girl is--always. She is our sunshine.

My ward held an amazing paint activity. I am grateful for our ward and the wonderful people I get to spend time with.
Grey & Elise had their field day. Jared volunteered to work a station and realized how hard it was to keep those kids  paying attention. Haha. Never again. I got to follow Grey & Elise all over to the different stations and eat bagels. I liked my plan better.

 Elise was sad she didn't get to stay after field day since she was in half day kinder that day. So I cheered her up with a little Wendy's lunch.

We took a family trip to the aquarium. I do those things a lot by myself with the kids. So it was extra nice to have Jared with us. The kids loved showing him everything. Cole actually touched the stingrays this time.

And the other thing keeping us crazy busy. We (meaning Jared & his dad) have been finishing part of our basement to move my laundry room downstairs so we can have a full mudroom upstairs. We have a hallway! This is where the laundry room and bathroom will be. Someday...
