May Recap: Beach Trip, Mother's Day, and Ringing in Summertime...

Several of these photos will probably be out of order and I honestly can't remember what order any of this happened anyway; such is life these days, as you can tell.

We took a weekend trip to Orange Beach the first weekend in May. We were supposed to go with some friends but they couldn't go so we asked my aunt, uncle and their kids to tag along. I was glad they could come on such short notice and it ended up being a fun weekend, even though we traded the semi-warm Birmingham weather for cold-and-windy beach weather. Still, it was a nice break from the laundry and dishes and what not. 
We packed all the essentials and headed down Friday after lunch.



Sam was decked out and ready to go on Saturday morning.


The beach ended up being a bit windy for us but that didn't stop Mary Ella from enjoying it. She could stay in the sand all day.



We enjoyed being in the room as much as being outside. On Sunday afternoon we put the air mattress on the balcony and Amanda, Annsley and I took a nap. It was heavenly.


All the "kids" at Original Oyster House in Gulf Shores.


The Chads and Charlie and Mary Ella went to The Track (arcade and go-kart place) 2 nights in a row and loaded up on tickets and prizes.



Mary Ella found tons of shells and brought every one of them back home with her.



EK loves her cousin Charlie.


The next weekend was Mother's Day weekend and we spent it here in town (that's actually the weekend we put the swing set together.) That week, Mary Ella's school hosted a "Muffins with Mom" brunch. When we walked into the room, these sheets were hanging on the wall and the kids' pictures were hidden so you had to guess which child said what. I thought for sure this one was mine:


I wouldn't be surprised if she'd said I worked at Target!  But she apparently thinks I work with her Dad all day. Apparently she never sees me around the house, huh? I promise I don't leave them by themselves. And I'm not sure I've ever eaten chicken and noodle soup in front of her, but you know, whatever sounds good. At least she didn't say Reese's Eggs.








We spent Mother's Day here in town. Our little family went to church and then treated me to lunch. I'm so thankful to be a momma to these 3 and to have such an amazing mother that taught me everything I know! 


Little sister turned 13 months old and began to stand up on her own (from a squat). She wouldn't take any steps; she'd just stand and maybe do a few semi-squats like she was dancing. I'd come into a room from being somewhere else and there she'd be, just standing there, not moving. So we began to refer to her as "statue baby." I intended on taking a few funny pictures over the next couple weeks of her standing in random places, but alas, she took her first steps soon after and so the standing still came to an end.





We've been enjoying the summer days with swimming and popsicles and plenty of outdoor playtime. These kids never object to anything water-related and certainly won't turn down a sweet treat. We've also had several lazy pajama days and we've started our summer reading. We've enjoyed several Sundays in a a row at our church here in town, something we don't get the luxury of experiencing during the winter months because it seems someone is always sick! So that has been good for all of us.
















 I have a few more posts to catch up on so check back later.
