May Adventures!

If I was a scrapbooker, May would have been a fun month to document. We celebrated Mother’s Day, Brady finished 3 year old preschool, and it was the unofficial start of summer. Seeing as how I don’t have the patience to scrapbook, a blog post full of pictures will have to do! Here’s how our month went…

We hosted a neighborhood Cinco de Mayo party at the beginning of the month. Because, we’ll take any excuse to eat tacos, drink beer and hit a piรฑata.

I got to attend the sweetest Mother’s Day Tea at Brady’s school and we had a mommy/son park date afterwards.

Mother’s Day weekend was full of yummy food, personalized gifts, and time spent with my boys.

The sweetest gift from all my boys!

We also checked out the Greensboro Science Center over Mother’s Day weekend!

The boys were staring into the aquarium desperately waiting to see a shark. I snapped this picture right as Brady gave up and said, “I can’t find a shark anywhere!” Umm, buddy, TURN AROUND!

We were pretty busy with house projectsย this month (as usual.)ย We have been working in the yard a lot and finally got around to painting our deck.

The boys really got a kick out of hanging out on the deck that “they painted.” Brady cracks us up when he puts his legs up and says, “This is the life.”

May was the perfect time to go strawberry picking (several times!) As usual, Nolan ended up with more on his face than in his basket.

Brady had his last day of 3 year old pre-school. He had such an amazing year, andย we can’t wait to see how he flourishes next year!

Once school let out, it freed us up to begin traveling a little more. We have a few big trips coming up, but we also like the freedom of being able to take some day trips around the area with the boys.

Our new favorite pace to visit- Jordan Lake. It’s as beachy as we can get in the middle of North Carolina!

When Chris has somewhere cool to go for work, we try and tag along every once in a while. This month we hung out in the middle of a state park in Virginia while he met with clients. Never a dull moment!

Boy, this was a precious moment…trying to get a picture of the boys hugging, then realizing they were wrestling on the side of a cliff overlooking a lake.

The weather has warmed up in a hurry and we’ve been thankful for our backyard kiddie pool and neighborhood pool.

May was also full of dinosaurs for us Smiths! We visited them at the museum, sorted them, drew them, found books about them at the library,ย and watched them on T.V.ย And now there’sย a dino-themed birthday party for Brady in the works for June.

May was nice and busy, and now we’re looking forward to an even busier June. Hooray for Summer!

Dinner at the neighborhood clubhouse…ah, the charmed life of the Smith boys!
