What a day!!!

A couple of weeks ago us moms took turns watching the 3 musketeers since JCPRD had a week's break. We enrolled the boys in a baseball camp put on by the high school coaching staff. It kept them busy for the mornings, and then we took them to the pool in the afternoons.

Thank goodness for books at Pizza Hut!

Don't they look like precious little angels?

And this is what the day led me to...a night out with Abby and a couple margaritas and the Sex and the City 2 movie. The movie was fine, but the company was outstanding!!!! This one's for you, my friend!!!

Hot Air Balloon Festival

The Kansas City Hot Air Balloon Festival was held at Celebration Park on Memorial Day weekend. We headed out Saturday evening to see the launch. It was delayed a bit because of the wind, but it soon died down enough to allow the balloons to launch. Here is a picture of the first balloon that launched over the Gardner water tower.

Matt and I were having fun telling Dylan all about our trip up in a balloon during our trip to Maine several years ago. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I hope we can take the boys sometime in the future!!

We ran into Jenny Piper and her boyfriend on our way back to the parking was our first time to meet him!!

Dylan's 1st Grade Graduation

Matt and I went to the 1st Grade Awards Assembly the last week of school...or as Dylan called it "his graduation to 2nd grade". All 3 first grade teachers presented the awards for their class. Dylan's teacher was so emotional...she loved her kiddos so much...and we loved her!!! Dylan's kindergarten teacher set the bar very high...we didn't see how anyone could top her...but Ms. Beverage just moved that bar quite a bit higher. We hope to see her on the walking trail with her family a bunch!!!

I think Dylan is standing in the 3rd row right beside Mr. Mortenson, the principal. Dylan got a gold medal for the KU (Ahem...yes I said those two letters) Reading Program. He read over 50 Accelerated Reader books during the year.

Here's Dylan with two of his buddies from his class...Ethan and Adam.

May Wrap-up

Moxie found a new friend.
(Really, she's not as evil as she looks...ha!)

We attended the GEHS graduation with Adrienne and Brady. Our favorite babysitter, Miss Lindsey, graduated. We love the fact that she's sticking around in Gardner for another year before she goes off to college.

It was a hot, hot, hot day at graduation, but our boys made it through the whole ceremony!!
