May Memories

Oh May!  Where did you go?  It seems like I was just writing about April and now here we are in June.  Sigh.  It was a busy month with Evan finishing up second grade, both big boys finishing up baseball, and exploring our new community every chance we could.

I changed out my beloved bunny banner for our Spring one.

Brody and I added some fun window clings to our decor.  Since we don't have a glass screen door at this house, we decided to decorate the inside mirrors where we can see them.  Brody loves saying things are awesome so this one was for him.  I put one on their bathroom mirror that says You are my sunshine.  Of course, all of these window clings were from the dollar bins at Target.

We began the month with our fun trip to Discovery Place Kids for Brody's birthday.

Both boys made cards to send to their cousins back in Charlotte.  I thought Brody did a good job on his.  I wrote the message, but he colored it in and put the animal stickers on it.

He also traced all of their names.

And his own name.

We spent many evenings at the ball fields with big brothers.

Our backyard had a lovely rosebush in bloom.  I think there are at least three varieties of rose bushes intertwined in this one bush.

The boys met the cow at our local Chick-fil-a.

And gave him high fives.

I can't believe I actually got a picture of Brody with the cow.  He is not usually a fan of costumed characters.

I enjoyed lots of snuggling with this little guy.

He enjoyed hanging out in his seat.

Just looking cute as usual.

I had a bit of a traumatic incident one morning rescuing this poor baby bird from the craziness of our dog.  I did put him back in his nest in our rose bush, but I didn't have the heart to check and see if he lived.

I made myself a yummy chocolate strawberry banana smoothie.  Yum!

This kid had his first taste of iced coffee, but he didn't actually drink much of it.  It was actually given to us free one morning when we stopped at the Krispy Kreme drive thru.  I guess it was a mistaken order.  I think the people behind us had ordered a vanilla one, and this chocolate one was made by mistake.

Silly boy thought it was a milkshake.

Mr. Mattox got to attend a little work social with Mommy and Daddy one evening, but there are no photos of Mommy and Daddy to document.

My little snuggle bear.

Mattox also enjoyed his first swim in the pool.

And he was all ready to watch big brother Brody's last t-ball game, but it got cancelled.

These boys have enjoyed using the pool in our new neighborhood.  Evan is just sad it doesn't have a diving board.

I did buy Brody a big float to play with in the pool.

He quickly picked right up where he left behind last year with his swimming.

Little fish.

And Evan is still a proficient swimmer and is making lots of new friends at the pool.

Sweet Mattox getting warmed up after his pool time. 


  1. I am so excited for our first pool visit. For some reason, it hasn't happened yet...

    Also, I miss Chick-Fil-A. We only had one meal there but it was very memorable.

  2. We finally had our first swim of the summer, but it was in Houston. We need to go where we live. =) I love all of these May memories. This is always such a fun post.

  3. It was a busy month but definitely not as busy as March or April. I think May finally brought you a little room to breathe and relax. That's always a good thing. All of the pictures of the boys are darling. Well, except the one of Brody's green teeth. Ha ha ha. That one is just freaky.
