may was crazy.
lots of plans and lots of rain.
i started off the month with a little
girls night out to see new kids on the block.
it was heinous and i think i'm too young to enjoy them,
but we had a ton of fun on the party bus and going out
to dinner so i'm glad i went...
even if it was on a tuesday and i almost died
getting up the next morning for work.
the following week, we went actual camping (not campering)
with the turnbow's (it's kind of an annual trip.)
the girls had lots of fun playing in the tents and roasting
brats and smores over the fire.
unfortunately, it started raining in the middle of the night, so
we couldn't stay around for our campfire breakfast and fishing.
we're going to try again next year.
and can i just say, that knob noster state park is beautiful and i
can't believe its only 15 minutes away.
i kind of wish our camper was parked there.
brette went on her first school field trip to a hatchery and went
fishing so i took off work so i could go with her.
it was such a pretty day and i loved that i was able to be there.
she actually caught a fish (her first ever!) so i consider this a success.
then over memorial day, we headed down to the lake.
it was the first time the EVERYONE went down.
the other times, it's just been us a couple other families,
but this time was a ton of fun because there was like 20 of us.
we plan our meals together, the pool was ready, the ice cream
shop was open and the kids had a blast.
we even took a little boat ride - the water was cold and gross so
no one got in, but i love being on a boat, so it made me happy.
we were also SUPER tired by the time we got home on monday,
but it was totally worth it.
i'm pretty sure my kids live for going campering.
and finally, today was the last day of school.
brette made it through kindergarten and i
feel like it went super fast.
i'm so proud of how well she can read and
its my goal to keep it up all summer long.
ronnie and i took the girls out for donuts to celebrate and
reid had her first water play day at school, so
everyone is in a great mood.
tonight there is a fair in knob, so we plan on meeting up with
some friends and taking the girls on the carnival rides.
gotta start summer out right!
we're headed into summer - my favorite time of year.
and june looks just a crazy busy as may.
i'll keep you posted.
