5.1-kg brought home a beautiful plant to ring in the new month
5.1-flower got to go to isaac's birthday party. she had a blast. river and i enjoyed some alone time.
5.3-we stopped by an apartment that our carpet cleaner, josh, was in and he let flower help him. she thought that was neat.
5.4-happy birthday erik!
5.5-happy birthday justin!
5.5-my mom took the girls for the day. that was such a huge help! i got more work done than usual without them there and it was so much less stressful. i wish she lived closer and we could afford to pay her enough money that she could watch them everyday and not need to look for a job! they had so much fun with grandma! they also met grandpa for lunch and got to play on the toys at mcdonald's. thanks mom.
5.6-flower and i went to lunch with kristen. i am so grateful to have her as a best friend. we've been friends for 27 years!!! awesome. later flower got to sit in a firetruck and i got the scowl of a lifetime from river! love her face.

that night we made stepping stones for river to give our mom's for mother's day.
5.8-sandee watched the girls so i could work. they went to spencer's game and played with grandma and grandpa and had a great time. thanks for the help sand!
kg played frisbee golf that morning with the elder's quorum and then he went and helped someone move into the ward.
5.11-kg took flower on a date. they went to chow chow's for dinner and then to a movie, percy jackson and the lightning thief.
5.12-on our way to and from work river loves to stop and pick up every pine cone she sees. i'm amazed at how many her little hands can hold, usually four or five.
5.14-my mom watched the girls again for me. such a huge help!
5.17-flower and i made cookies to take to matt for making it to state in golf! good job matt.
5.20-on the way to work lisa was driving by so she gave the girls a ride in her bike basket. they love this!
on the way home after work they kept stopping to sit on the curb and enjoy their surroundings.
5.21-we went on a family date. first to cobby's for dinner and to diary of a wimpy kid at the dollar theater with kristen and cameron. very cute show. daddy put a pretty flower in flower's hair on our walk to the theater.
5.22-we went to alice in wonderland at the dollar theater with john and the boys and sandee and kas. i like the original much better!
5.25-i love moments like this when i catch them reading together.
5.26-flower road a two wheel bike with training wheels for the first time. river also road the big wheel for the first time. they both absolutely love riding their bikes.

5.27-when we got home from work the sprinklers were on and there were several broken ones so it quickly attracted the girls. i let them go ahead and get soaked. they loved it.

5.30-we went to dinner with jer and kris as bangkok thai. flower showed them how well she could ride her bike. earlier that day river drank a couple of ounces of room spray. i called poison control and they said to watch for vomiting. that evening, in the span of the hour before and after dinner, she puked 5 times. kind of scrary. sandee and family came to get in the hot tub so we sent flower down and then she spent the night with them just in case we had to take river to the emergency room. thankfully, with the help of a priesthood blessing by kg, she was healthy and slept all night with no more puking.

it was a busy month and i have a feeling things aren't going to slow down in june! and i'm still waiting for it to warm up around here. however, my pocket book is enjoying that the electric bill is remaining low since we haven't had to use heat or air for quite some time. i just wish it would stop raining!
