May in Review

May came and went so quickly!  I know I say that every month but it’s true.  Summer has arrived and the boys are spending most of their time playing outside – and I may have started working on my tan (which will probably take till the end of summer to actually turn into anything, I’m so pale!).  Even the dogs are loving the warm weather – I let them out in the backyard and look out there a few minutes later and Abby’s just laying in the grass with the wind in her face, listening to the birds chirping and the sounds of the neighborhood.  Life just seems better in the summer, or at least more carefree.   🙂

Below are my posts from May if you missed any:
