Other May Happenings

May has been a great month! Finally the weather is turning warm and we can see summer is coming. The girls went shopping and got some bathing suits to prepare for pool days: 

The days are getting longer and busier. Poor Josie is just along for the ride. Sometimes she is just so tuckered out that she has to nap whenever/wherever she can:

Jack's 2nd grade english class wrote and published a book. We got to go to the official reading of the book. The story was based on portals and each kid got to write one page of somewhere the portal took them. Jack wrote about a place called "baby land' filled with lots of babies.

It was finally warm enough to start wearing shorts again. I pulled out this really cute hand-me-down from Lily's old clothes.
The kids and I went to the "Kites in the Park" event by our house. Unfortunately there was no wind that day. The kids just had to run to try to keep their kites in the air.
We have had many park days. Lily knows how to swing herself. It is such a liberating accomplishment.

One afternoon we went to Odell's brewery for a flyfishing event. The kids got these free tshirts and then we entered into a raffle and won all sorts of other really cool prizes. It was pretty awesome.

One Sunday afternoon we took the kids for a 5 mile bike ride/run. They rode their bikes, Luke and I ran. Both kids did amazing with very little complaining.
On our way home we stopped by the park to let them cool off:

Lots of fun videos this month:

Here is Josie at gymnastics swinging into the foam pit. She has such an adventurous spirit

And here is Lily flipping off the bar at the park. Another adventurous soul:

Josie has learned how to say her name and it is the cutest thing ever "Doe dee" 

Lily has always loved to sing in the car and now Josie is taking after her sister. I just love to turn off the radio and listen to them sing when I drive:

Josie is a spunky one. So much sass and spitfire in this girl:

We started teaching Josie how to play hide-and-seek this month. She is so much fun!

Josie loves ants and all little bugs. Her and Lily can be entertained for hours watching an ant crawl around the house:
