May 2016

In May I celebrated my birthday.  Our sweet boys made cards for me and each of them put $2 of their own money in my card.  Love it!

Our friend Addison shares my birthday.  Her party was a book theme, so the boys dressed as their favorite Mr Men characters.  We initially wrapped Jack's head in an ace bandage for Mr Bump, but he immediately took it off.  To my dismay, it was before I even snapped a picture.
We bought the same Cardinals season tickets that we had last year, so we have 3 games this year.  Our first one was on May 4.  We decided to leave Nora with Grandma & Grandpa Lang and just took the boys this time.

Grandma sent us this picture of Nora cheering on our Redbirds...

This was my Mother's Day gift that Charlie made at school...

And Jack made this:
 We had a little Mother's Day gathering at our house.  We were also celebrating Grandma Clayton's retirement, which was so exciting!!  We took the opportunity for a photo shoot.  We got every combination except our family of 5 (Jason was inside cooking) - whoops!

Later in the month, we had another Cardinals game.  This time we took Ms Nora to her first game.  She was a perfect angel, and even took a little nap in her stroller for part of it (she is a champion stroller napper).

After the game, we headed over to the Pressons for an outdoor movie night.  It was a long, fun day!

This month Charlie also learned to ride his bike without training wheels!  He was so excited!
We also went to a birthday party at Bounce U for our neighbor Trenton.

One evening we went to the neighborhood park and a storm started moving in.  It got a little chillier than I expected, so Nora had to wear my cardigan.  She looked so cute!!
 It started drizzling so we had to drive home, but Jack REALLY wanted to ride his bike.  We drove alongside him while he rode in the rain.  He LOVED it!
