May: Peach Harvest 2014

We picked over 80 lbs. of peaches from just one of our trees! It was a fantastic harvest. Luckily Grandma was in town to help us put them up. They were just delicious!

Finally May!

Gosh I hate being pregnant. I love the outcome, hate the process. So May was exciting because it meant I was almost done. Not that we did all that much. For your viewing pleasure, some random pictures in May:
Anniversary flowers! 12 years.

Maddie moved up to level 5!

Does getting the car detailed count as nesting??

April: Madeline's Birthday

Maddie turned 5 in April, and to celebrate we had a Peter Pan Party! I was so excited that she still wanted to do this theme. We planned most of it last year for her 4th, but had to cancel it for Mumma's funeral.

April: Andrew goes camping with Dad!

Every spring our church does a father-son campout (they do a father-daughter campout in the fall), and this year Andrew was finally old enough to go! Dave said that he loved digging in the dirt and eating snacks the most.

April: Coloring Easter Eggs

We spent an hour on Good Friday coloring Easter eggs. It is not my favorite holiday tradition, but luckily the kids are getting big enough to do it themselves.

April: Town Easter Egg Hunt

Every year our town does an Easter egg hunt the week before Easter. The weather is usually mild, and the hunt is usually over in 2 minutes, but the bounce houses and petting zoo add to the fun. We always run into friends when we go, whether we plan it or not!
