May Mayhem

May is always a crazy busy month.  It rivals December in terms of fun stuff going on.  We started out the month with the Daisy Family picnic.  This is always a fun event that the kids love.  Jane and Sydney took advantage of the tattoo artist and got themselves some mustaches!  The photo booth and go-karts were also a big hit!
Next up, we had our annual "Pool Opening" party at Deedee and Papaw's.  We celebrated Papaw's birthday and the kids enjoyed the first outdoor swim of the season.  It was big fun with food, swimming, and hula hooping. 
However, we did have two small setbacks: 1) Clare freaked out after finding a teeny-tiny turtle in the pool
 and 2) Graham wasn't feeling his best.  He actually ended up having pneumonia that week, but thankfully, he bounced back quickly with some antibiotics.  Good thing too...too much going on to waste time being sick!
Thankfully, he was healthy for his End of Year Program.  He loved performing, and he was the cutest little bumblebee around! 
And you better believe that he had quite the cheering section!
Our next May event was Mother's Day!  It was a special, relaxing day.  The kids showered me with gifts, and Casey cooked a delicious dinner. These four are such great kids and made me feel so special!
 Yesterday, we celebrated with LoLo, Emme, and Deedee at our annual Mother's Day Tea.  The girls and I love this special event, and it's always fun to have a "fancy" lunch.  I hope our grandmas know how much we appreciate them!

Finally, the 80's dance at the elementary school was a totally rad night!  The girls embraced the theme and were decked out in their 80's finest! 
The rest of May holds even more fun....Field Day, Graham's last days of preschool this year, field trips, end of season soccer parties and more!  By the time summer gets here, we'll all be ready for a break!
