Pools, the Lake, and Vegas

Isaac's annual work trip to Vegas...where I get to tag along kid free thanks to grandparents and babysitters

It was fun, and a wonderdul break to recharge... But I was more ready than ever to get back to these kids.  Probably bc we were supposed to get home about 3pm and didn't make it home until about 9:30pm. They are pretty lovely to come home to. 

Annette's school field trip to Funland at burns park was the next day. 

Set wasn't so sure ab the rides. 

Charlie had his last day of preschool. 

Neighbors came over for grilling and Popsicles. 

We went to the pool and lake this holiday weekend. 

Uncle Thad joined us

Charlie took this pic of me and set:)

Set is such a hazard by the pool. Eats the sunscreen and hates the floaties, puddle jumpers, etc. Know he will get used to them soon enough. Because I plan to be at the pool as much as possible this summer. 

Annette still has two more weeks of school to go and then she will be with us in the mornings again.

Block party and other May fun

Last year we helped host a block party on our street. It was a hit, so we had another one this year. Even bigger hit;)

It's nice being close to our neighbors. Such a sense of community! Very grateful for this 'extended family'. 

Water squirters filled in water buckets. 

Resulting in several Set outfit changes

Jump houses 



Glowing lanterns

Love living life in our front yards together. 

Other fun:

Set and I love tumble n play class

Disney on Ice with some friends from school

Mothers Day was wonderful. Every year a reminder of how undeservedly blessed I am. 

I'm in shock that Annette wasn't in the mood to take a picture. Ha. 

She won't turn down a craft though. That's for sure. 

Getting I golf mode around here... Isaac plays in a tournament this weekend. 

And it's a happy early start to the weekend bc my new barstools came in (finally!) We can now sit at the bar, wahoo!
