Preschool Graduate!

 My baby girl is a preschool graduate!!  She had her preschool graduation tonight and it was SO cute!  Molly won the "Future Author Award" because her teachers say she is always writing stories.  We just cannot say enough good things about Molly's school and Molly's teachers.  We have been so blessed with awesome preschool teachers for our girls.  Congratulations, my sweet preschool graduate!

Today was a rough day.  We said goodbye to our 13-year-old black lab.  No matter how much you think you are prepared, it's still hard.  She was such a good dog.  She will be missed.

Water Babies

The pool opened this weekend and my girls were SOOOOO excited!  Everyday they ask if we can go swimming.  We've been twice in four days!  All three of my kiddos LOVE the water!

Picnic in the Park

 It was a BEAUTIFUL day so we decided to spend it at the park with our friends the Hoovers.  Nolan is Aaron's "birthday buddy"--they were born the exact same day!  Everyone had a great time.

Capturing their beauty...

I love when I'm snapping pictures of my children and I happen to get one that captures their natural beauty.
Love these precious faces!

Mother's Day

My sweet girls made me Mother's Day cards at preschool with their little hand-prints.  They were SO excited to give them to me!  Of course I got all teary.  (This was the best I could get of Rayna....I tried!) 

So thankful for my little blessings!
And our Moms!

We ALL love strawberries!!

Fun on the Block!

I hate to brag--but we pretty much have the greatest neighbors EVER!  We are so blessed to have such awesome people in our lives.  They cook for us, help us with our kids, help us with home repairs, etc.  Today, I cut the grass for the first time ever and TWO of our neighbors came to help me out!  SO BLESSED! 
Tonight, right before bed, Rayna and I had this conversation:

Rayna: Mrs. Mao say there is no school on Saturday.
Me: You're right. There is no school tomorrow!
Rayna: No school tomorrow--YAY! I get to play with Sutton and Gavin and Kamera!
Me: And Mommy and Daddy?
Rayna: Ummm.....yeah.....goodnight.
