May 2016

The month of May brought some more sunshine, and excitement for summer to begin.

Briz first ended her year of dance with the most adorable dance recital ever.  The song above is Singing in the Rain.

And the cutest little South American dance, acting like birds.  

She had a couple more "magical" songs, from Willy Wonka, the Rainbow Connection, etc.  

As always, she was in dancing/performing heaven.

At one recital, I didn't have any kids, so I gladly let Connor sit on my lap and keep me entertained.

Miss Heidi talking about Brizzy being brave.  She isn't scared of trying new things and is always a great helper.  She got to have a solo performance as Red Riding hood in one of the songs, and she LOVED it.

With her two friends from her ward, Blair, and Reagan.  

I got a little teary taking this picture, because I just want to soak up how innocent these girls are.  

Strawberries came on early, so we took a couple trips down the street to Baggenstos.  The Mount Hoods were unbelievable!  

Biggest downside to the super sweet strawberries is that you have to do something with them asap, so a day of picking, freezing, jamming, and or/baking pretty much takes up the whole day.

Wembley is pretty much the worst picker ever.  She wants to eat all of the strawberries and as soon as she decides she's done with that, she sits there and whines.  She also takes off her shoes.

As always we returned to the library weekly where Wembley destroyed the library computer.  She likes the idea of wearing earphones, but still pretty much refuses to keep them on.

We planted blueberries on the side of our house, and the started to blossom.  

We also got a few raspberries (oddly enough, they actually didn't really come on until October).

Big highlight was that Wembley actually let Brizzy put her to bed.  Favorite thing in Brizzy's life!

One night we braided Brizzy's hair so it would be all wavy the next day.  She was pretty excited anticipating the beauty it would be.  But when she woke up the next morning, her hair was HUGE and frizzy and she cried.  

Wembley caused more trouble this month when she pulled over our cheap Ikea shelf.  I wasn't too sad about giving it away and some of it breaking, but it puts some major dents in my nice wood floors.

We went to more of Dad's softball games since the weather was improving.  This night we were in a hurry, so we brought mac n cheese to go.

Wems was feeling a little sick one day.  So I let her cuddle in my bed and watch Daniel Tiger.  I don't let her do this very often, so I tried to enjoy it.  I love it when she's sick because she sits still and cuddles with me!
