Well we've had a busy but very fun month. My nephew turned 5 and had a Transformers birthday party. The invitations were nothing short of spectacular. You know at the end of the Transformers movie where Optimus Prime is sending a message to all surviving autobots? Well if you don't go watch it because it's a good movie. Anyway they had my nephew make a CD sending a message to all "partybots" in the family. Clever right? May had lots of fun playing with her cousins, she loves to be with the kids these days not mom and dad.

My brother is being deployed. He will leave for boot camp in August come home for Thanksgiving and then leave to Afghanistan for about a year and a half. He is really excited to go but we are sure going to miss him! He is the really tall one in the middle-in case you were wondering.
Mother's Day weekend was really nice. On Friday May and I went to go see my grandparents. We got to visit with them for a little which doesn't happen as often as it should. My great-grandma (so May's great-great-grandma) is so darn sweet. She just loves to sit and look and May and says that she just has to memorize her face so she doesn't forget what her great-great-granddaughter looks like. She tells May all about how wonderful she is and how she is growing into such a wonderful girl and how she is going to do great things with her life. It breaks my heart that May probably won't understand how much she is loved by this wonderful woman!
That night we went to Zach's brothers house for dinner and to see his mom.
Sunday we went to our good friends' baby blessing. May decided to cheer the primary after they sang their song for the mothers. It was pretty awesome. We had a really good time. There is a set of four of us. The boys all went to high school together and the wives married into the friendship. This was our last chance to see Craig before they move to Nebraska (I get to see Candice one more time at her baby shower). We are so sad they are leaving!

Here is a picture of all of us. There will be 2 boys and 2 girls amongst our families and one of the boys said it's perfect for them to intermarry. Although if May keeps beating up on the little boys they aren't going to want anything to do with her :)

After the luncheon at the park we headed to my parents house for dinner. I was terribly grumpy and probably owe my family a huge apology. In my defense I had just been on a playground in heels chasing May for 3 hours which wasn't the greatest idea. My Dad got us dinner which was nice. Ode to my mom who is so amazing. Not only is she an amazing mom but she is an amazing grandma. She helps me so much and May just loves to go see her. Love you mom!
It must be recorded that Zach let me sleep in on Sunday, he got breakfast ready, made me a mac-and-cheese lunch and did all the dishes. Friday he surprised me with some beautiful flowers and Sunday he gave me a watch. I get a watch on a special occasion at least once a year, they always fall off and get lost and then I am lost, so it's great annual present. Don't I have such a sweet husband?
