Memorial Day and May

On Memorial Day, I played in an outdoor doubles volleyball tournament with Kyle.  I haven't played outdoor in a really long time so it took me a few games to get used to it but it was so much fun!  It made for a long day for the boys and poor Spencer had to chase them around all day. 

Towards the end of May we went to Wheeler Farm with my friends Jamie and Lyndsey and their kids.  It was a nice spring day and the kids loved running around.  Kaiden could care less about the animals once he saw the tractor though.

We got the cutest picture with all 3 of the kiddos smiling. 

The rest of the pictures are just the random pictures of the end of May.

Spencer's Birthday and 7 Peaks

Spencer's birthday was May 23rd and he wanted to go for a bike ride that morning.  We packed a lunch and went for a ride up to Bridal Veil Falls.  It was such a nice day and the boys loved it.

 The boys in their trailer all ready to go.  Kaiden wouldn't let go of his lunch box.

We stopped along the way at a park for our lunch break and Kaiden just sits right down and opens his lunch box and starts eating. 

 This picture is hard to see but Grayson was passed out when we got back from our ride.  His poor little head just bobs around, haha.

We also went to 7 Peaks the Saturday before Memorial Day.  It was actually the first day it was open for the summer and we thought it would be more crowded but it wasn't bad at all. Kaiden loved going down most of the slides except cave in, it was too dark for him.  Grayson hated the freezing cold water, after a lap around the lazy river with him screaming the whole time even when we held him out of the water, we pretty much traumatized him for the whole summer.

Grayson at 9 Months and a Birthday

Grayson turned 9 months old on May 20th.  He finally was out as long as he was in me.  He has started army crawling and being able to get himself back up into a sitting position.  He definitely has started the wiggly busy stage and is working on more teeth.  He is still calm and happy and such a good baby. 

 I couldn't even keep him in one place to take pictures! Haha

Kaiden didn't want to be left out of the picture taking.

On my birthday this year, Spencer threw me a little surprise party.  I started the day with Kneaders yummy french toast in bed from my sweet husband but then we had to go mow and Spencer had to work that night so my friend Lyndsey had invited me over for dinner that night.  I caught Spencer texting her so I was a little suspicious but I just thought that Spencer was going to surprise me by showing up.  But not only did he surprise me but some of my friends too.  I was totally surprised and not expecting that.  Spencer had planned and bought all the food and everything.  It was a really good birthday and so much fun.  I have such a thoughtful and sweet husband that loves surprising me and spoiling me!

My yummy cake Lyndsey made me, the candles are supposed to say 28 minus 1 haha.

Mother's Day and Early May

Mother's day was a busy day headed from family to family to see everyone.  Part of it we were at the park which Kaiden loves.  Any opportunity to play outside makes him a happy boy.

I sure do love my boys.  I am so lucky to be their mother and to have the mother's in my life.

In the first couple weeks of May we have had a lot of fun.  The rest of the pictures show some of what we did.

We have had dinner at Grandma Carters a few times and Kaiden always has to get out all the toys.  He's been starting to work on hitting the ball off of a toss, the t is too easy for him now.

Grayson has been getting bigger and he loves jumping in his jumper. 

Kaiden took a nose dive on Mother's Day into the dirt and got a big scratch between his eyes but at least I got some pictures before it happened.

Someone gave Spencer these old little kid Jordan shoes and Kaiden will always go and get them and put them on and walk around with them like he is a little baller.

Grayson started army crawling and has figured out where all of Kaiden's toys are and he crawls right over to them.  His toys are no longer fun.

My mom and dad got a battery powered 4 wheeler toy that Kaiden loves.  Apparently the fast speed though is way too fast and he got freaked out at first but after some coaxing and keeping it on the normal speed, he loves it.
