Catching Up......FINALLY!

We are back from vacation. We had an awesome time in OBX. Blog post and pictures to follow....someday...LOL. I have been such a bad blogger. Summer is so hard. We are so busy and really enjoying all things summer. I have been a bad blog reader too. I do catch up with all the blogs I follow about once a week. I don't always comment but I am reading and enjoying following along.

Now for the catch up. We had a busy May.....Here is what we were up too. I will tell the story with my pictures.......

Katie at Dress Rehearsal in May for the recital in June

Bailey and I at Dress Rehearsal

Happy Mother's Day to me. A beautiful Pandora bracelet with 2 charms was in that silver box.

Me and my Baby on Mother's Day. I can't wait to learn Photoshop so I can fix my gray roots in

All the Mom's and kids on Mother's Day after dinner at Candela's.

Katie got a Big Girl Bed. She got a toddler bed when she turned 3 and was growing out of it. We promised her a Big Girl Bed for her 4th birthday and in March. We finally got the bed in May. She loves it. She looks so tiny in this big bed.

We planted our garden in May. Bailey and Brady have always helped me plant my garden. They love it. Now Katie loves it too. I let them have their our pots and pick their own flowers. They plant the flowers and take care of their pots all season. Some of the other neighborhood boys came over and helped too. They had a blast. It was fun watching the kids really get into it.

All the kids working on their pots.

I attended Timmy's Graduation from Mulenberg College. I have known Timmy since he was born. Timmy is my friend Eileen son and my Best Friend Karen's nephew. I am so proud of him.

We had a Disney Planning Picnic at Emma's house. We are going to Disney in September with our good friends. Two of the families from our local adoption group and one of the families from our China Travel group. They live in Reno, NV and are meeting us there. Laura, Kate, Mimi, and I planned what we are going to do in Disney while the girls played and the men hung out on the patio. We called Erika in Reno and conferenced her in on our planning.

Lia enjoying hers.

Thanks Kevin and Laura for a great time. We can't wait to go to Disney!!! 52 days!!!!

The Sunday before Memorial Day we attended Addie and Graham's wedding. Graham is my co-worker Ruck's son. We had a blast. I had some fun praticing still life with my camera.

The last weekend in May we went to The Great Wolf Lodge in the Poconos. We had a blast! We will definitely go back.

Worth the wait...worth the wait!!! You aure are having the best summer ever...don't worry about the blog...and just keep making memories!!! I won't mention that I had the (great!) idea to start a group blog for Disney...and then we could have it made into a book for the girls later...we could take turns posting about getting ready and then when we are there, etc.

Okay...didn't mean to hijack the comment section...we'll talk!!
