MAY! Fantastic busy month. The more I do these monthly updates the more I recognize things I need to journal and take pictures of. So lots of pictures on this post.
The first weekend in May our ward did father and sons camp out! I was so excited for Baiden because he is finally old enough to go with his daddy. Nothing that boy would want more than to have a weekend to himself with dad.
The girls had fun too though! We went shopping at the mall for some bedding for Kinzi's new bed. No luck. Then had dinner in the food court and saw a dollar movie after that! Sherman and Peabody. Cute movie but I think its definitely geared towards kids a little older than 3. She didn't really understand a lot going on but laughed because the other kids did. It involves a lot of history which I liked though. We then came home and of course did makeovers on each other. It was so late but we did it anyways! I let her do my makeup and her own lipstick-so fun!
Next up in may was mothers day. I got to spend Friday night and pretty much all day Saturday with some of my sisters. We got a hotel to stay in. Had pedicures, went shopping (where I got like 4 pairs of the BEST silky old lady jammies I wear every night and day I guess too), ate lots of food, went to the movies, stayed up late doing nothing. Fun to have a little get away. I came home Saturday to homemade cards and a printer which I have been wanting/needing for a while! Then mothers day came and is was a nice simple day. Since I am Kinzi's teacher I get to see her in Primary every week and I LOVE it. She sings the songs so well and is so outgoing! I had made sure she knew the song for mothers say so she would sing loud when they sang in church. Alas, it was time to go up and I was so excited to have my first experience with a child singing to me on mothers day, and what happened? She had a total meltdown and was too scared to go! I may sound like a horrible mom, but I was seriously so disappointed haha. It just isn't like Kinzi to be shy like that. But its okay. I got over it, after sacrament meeting...
Then I had a little incident at church that kind of made my day a little sour and my mom wasn't feeling well so I didn't get to see her, just slip her present through the door. But all in all, it wasn't a bad day-I have these two kids and one in my belly that make me so happy to be a mom. I love doing what I do and find myself very blessed with the life I have.
The kids also had their first dentist appointments this month. Kinzi had a little plaque build up on her teeth so that was nice to get removed. She did actually really, really good! Did everything they told her and didn't cry or try to resist it. I was so proud of her. Baiden was excited it was finally his turn. He got in the chair and was so excited it moved back. Then they asked him to open his mouth and he was done. Haha wouldn't even say cheese for them. They gave him a toothbrush and he did let them at least look at his teeth while he brushed them. Goober.
These pictures have nothing to do with anything. But they are fun to look at and we took them in May...
After the funeral was over we planned on going up to the mountain but it was hard to leave with all the family there at Grandma and Grandpa's house. We just decided to stay and be with family for the weekend. Not to mention it was Don's 31st birthday Sunday, how could we miss that?
The kids had so SO much fun playing with their cousins. And for everyone being there besides Dave and Nicole and Carlee :( it wasn't that chaotic or crazy. No one was sick. Kids got along. Adults played games and enjoyed each others company. It was one the best weekends we have had in a while. We didn't have anything we had to do or anywhere to be, but we were never bored and relaxed a lot. They bought a pool for the kids to swim in. It seemed pretty big until all the kids were in it. Baiden has to take breaks while swimming because he gets so cold so fast. That's what he gets for being so skinny!
Baiden has this new thing of dotting his face and hair with ranch when he eats it.
Our Garden has taken off!! We have had about 20-30 zucchini so far! I am dying for some watermelon soon. And carrots and cantaloupe!
Kinzi using her imagination!
And on the last day of the month-probably the best ;) Kinzi had her Dance Recital!!
You can see my 6 month belly popping out too!
