Happy Memorial Day!

We had a great Memorial Day as we went to Stillwater to walk around, visit the shops and just enjoy the beautiful weather.
 Here's our family standing in front of the very swollen river.  It was overflowing over the walkway and all the way on to the grass.

There's no real point to this picture.  I just thought Jack had a nice smile while he was playing with a bucket on his head

Kindergarten, here I come!

Combat ready!

Jack is registered and tested for kindergarten and so excited! We celebrated with a new Iron Man toy. Before school rolls around though, we have a fun summer planned! T-ball starts June 11th, and also we have a family reunion and are just hoping to be outside as much as possible. We went to the zoo with grandma's school and some friends. We've also had fun going to garage sales lately. I like to look for household decor, but the kids like to go because they can rack up some fun toys. Here's my new headboard and a few other recent pictures from mother's day.

Happy birthday, Boppa!

We celebrated grandpa's birthday Sunday, and we think Ava is calling him Boppa. So cute. We had a great time!

Mother's Day

I love Mother's Day! It is almost like another birthday! I got to celebrate early with my family since we are with our moms on the actual day. Matt and the kids took me to YUM Kitchen and Bakery, and it WAS yummy! I also got a new watch and sunglasses and a yellow travel cup (my favorite color).

Matt asked me my favorite part of being a mom. It was fun to think of all the great things about it. Of course my favorite thing is my kids. I love to see how they are like me and Matt. I love that Matt and I agree completely on how to parent. I love that I'm able to be with them all day every day. I love that I have a boy and a girl. I love that they are getting older, and I can really interact with them more. I love how happy they are. I love how they got excited about it being my day...for a little while anyway! I look forward to many more years of being their mom if God allows!
