And here we go finishing out the month of May! Slowly but surely getting there :)
Ryan got his very first pair of new big boy shoes at Stride Rite! And while we were at the mall, I used gift cards I had been collecting to buy some new rings for my right hand - my ring finger had been feeling naked for a while (lots of jewelry drama...our cleaner stole a bunch of stuff from us on her last day cleaning about a year and a half ago...long story. not fun.)...so I got these three Pandora rings! And I love them! And I also bought new shoes for me :) HA! I was busy shopping for sure!
And Katie had a soccer game! She and Annalane were ready to go!
And after the game - which was the last of the spring season - I had to get a picture of Katie with her coach! He is such a great guy and is the main reason Katie keeps going back to soccer!
There was a day (that seems like yesterday!) that the weather was amazing and a bunch of the neighborhood kiddos ended up playing at our house. It was amazing and made me so thankful to be where we are!
I caught the perfect picture of Jack jumping over the cones he had set up. Love this!
And then they all decided to make a train with ride on toys and hula hoops! Pretty creative if you ask me!
Love that sweet boy! And I also like that he will ask for me to take his picture and actually cooperate now!
Cute boy! Gosh he is changing so very much!
Who knows what Jack did to his head - always a bruise! There is no way I could get this kind of picture now that Ryan is walking!
We also went to the Touch A Truck event and the kids had a blast getting to climb into and on all kinds of different things that go!
The next day, Katie and I had a girls night with friends - we ate at Margaritaville and went to the Kidz Bop concert! It was such a fun night!
And see that curly blonde hair? Yes - that would be Keith and Nicole sitting just three rows in front of us! I love my town :)
And the next day we headed to church! The kids all looked so springy!
We took advantage of our first day of summer break by walking and stopped at the park! Ryan had a great time in the swing!
Jack loves swinging in the big swings now - of course he wants to be pushed really high into the sky!
And I love this picture of Katie - hair flying around and a big smile!
I did the Color Run! Here is the before and after - we got pretty messy for sure! It was fun to run through downtown Nashville!
And on Memorial Day these cuties were sporting their red, white, and blue!
We went down to visit Grandma and got to go to a new splash park near her house! It was overcast so hardly anyone was there - it was perfect!
Another action shot (imagine that) of The Dude!
And a sweet picture of Grandma and Ryan! He didn't get out there in the water...if we took him now I think he would have to get in the middle of all of that!
And love this one of Brad and Ryan! Think they're related?? ha! Ryan favors Brad a lot!!
We also tried on hats at Target! Ryan was not so sure about the hat - and Jack liked it for about 5 minutes. Needless to say we did not buy them :)
And the boys were matchy matchy one day and I managed to get a decent picture of them when we were visiting Cee Cee!
Love this picture of Jack! Looking so grown up and handsome (I know - I am partial)!
We also went to the zoo with some friends! Just the boys :)
And here is Amy and me! We have been friends since high school - we don't see each other very often but when we do it is so much fun!
That night, we went to eat some BBQ and I took this picture of Jack and me...I love it!
And all the crazies ready to play in the sprinkler! We had some neighbors over for fun and dinner - they had the best time! They played outside for hours - literally until after dark!
And the mamas! Love them!
And we walked to the pool for a swim and then walked home! It was Ryan's first time in the kiddie pool - I think it is safe to say he loved it.
And some clean, matching brothers! I do believe this set up ended up with Jack "giving Ryan a hug" - which means a chokehold. Oh my.
Such a fun night! It did also include several things that I've already posted - Field Day, end of school, etc! :)
