Since it's a bazillion degrees outside right now (or at least 98), I thought I'd use my quiet time for a blogfest. Enjoy!
As one might expect, we had many beautiful days in May and often enjoyed playing outdoors. This park is in Canyon Rim, right by where Brooklyn and Eli rehearse for choir.
This fun park is near the Fairmont Aquatic center. Different day, same Snow White costume.
Brooklyn, I love how attentive you are to your sister, giving Annie a boost whenever she needs.
And these pictures were taken at the park down the road with our new digital SLR camera, a gift to Jason for our 14th anniversary. (Well, not the first pic. Obviously.)
Talia perfecting her mill circles.
Deer in the cemetery.
When Brooklyn went to do youth baptisms in May, the rest of us enjoyed the flowers on Temple Square and the fountains at City Creek.
Unsurprisingly, May was super busy with end of the year festivities. I chaperoned Brooklyn's sixth grade field trip to Lagoon amusement park...
...and Talia's field trip to the zoo.
What else in May? I baked a pie...
...for Eli, our Jedi. (And everybody else too.)
The kids brought home lots of art from school which promptly decorated their bedroom wall.
Of course, Talia regularly decorates her ceiling too. I think its kind of cool that she goes to sleep looking at her list of Goals (1. To go on a mission 2. To go to BYU 3. To be a gymnast 4. To read the Book of Mormon by the time I'm twelve 5. To keep my room clean 6. To get married in the temple)
...to there. Let's hope it survives the transplant.
Last but not least, Brooklyn chopped her hair in May, just a few days before the end of her elementary school career and right before she headed to Europe. Here she is looking more grown-up than ever.
I guess her hair was short when she started kindergarten seven years ago, but my, how time flies.
