Unfortunately Aunt Ashley and Uncle Kyle's wedding location had to change in the last week, but everything ended up working out well.  We ended up at the Drexel Community Center.  It is right by a lake and there is a playground there for the kids.
 Jayvan loved this bumblebee and wouldn't stop kissing the dinosaur.

 My parents:

 Kyle's family provided a wonderful BBQ dinner.

 We stayed after dinner to finish the decorating.

The Last Day of First Grade

This year has gone by so quickly.  Lexi has grown so much physically, academically, spiritually, and emotionally.  She is my amazing girl who teaches me how to love and be the best mom I can be.  I can't wait to see what second grade brings.

 This is the difference between the first and last day of first grade.
 Can you spot the little brother who was pretty mad about being stuck inside?  I finally let him out and he immediately ran out into the rain.  Predictable. . .

Reader's Theater

Lexi's class had a "Reader's Theater" to celebrate the end of the year.  It was adorable and I was so happy that I could take off of work for a little while to go watch it.  

Lexi was the farmer's wife in "Stone Soup."  I can't get the video to upload right now, but just trust me that is was adorable.

 And here are a couple cute pictures of Jayvan.

Happy Memorial Day

Matt smoked a bunch of meat and veggies, but this required multiple umbrellas thanks to an all-morning rain storm.  Jayvan was sad that he couldn't help with the grilling.

 The kids were so excited when Aunt Ashley arrived.
 The food was great and so was the company.

 It was also Aunt Audrey's birthday, so we had some cake to celebrate.

Mia's Birthday Party

Mia had a Spongebob pool party at Nana's house.  It was a little chilly for me to brave the pool, but some others were braver.

I think she had a great birthday!

Bachelorette Party

Ashley is getting married in a week and we decided to have a ladies night to celebrate.  We ate dinner at a Mexican restaurant.  Then we went back to Mom's to watch a movie and open some gifts.  There are more pictures, but they won't make it to the internet. 

Field Day 2013

I took off work so I could volunteer at Lexi's field day.  I helped with the obstacle course.  It was so fun watching these kids run all morning.  

 I love this girl!
