We started off the month of May with one of my very dear friends, Katie, getting married. It's always so fun when friends get married - we love celebrating together and having the chance to all be together again!

I also had the chance to take Carter to the Tulip Festival with my cousins and their kids. It was pretty hot, but SO beautiful! I was amazed and was entertained the whole time. I hoped to make it again before it ended, but it just didn't happen.

Mother's Day and Brad's birthday landed on the same day this year. That was a little tricky. We decided to celebrate his birthday on Saturday and then have Mother's Day for me. It felt a little different and I felt guilty not making Sunday all about Brad, but we tried. Brad wanted to just spend time with our little family. We started off the day with yummy waffles and opening presents. And we made sure we didn't do any housework that day and then went out to a low-key dinner to Mountain West Burrito because that's what he felt like eating.
I get a little nutso for birthdays and probably had a little too much fun wrapping presents...

May also means preschool is ending. I am always so sad to see my students go. They were so much fun to have and the kids were so good to me. I got spoiled by the parents and felt very appreciated - which always means a lot to me.

We also had Brad's sister, Mindy get married! I headed down a week before the wedding to help with prep and Brad came later in the week. Hannah and I got to make Mindy's veil from scratch and it turned out beautiful! We were pretty proud! We had a lot of fun spending the week with the family and celebrating such a special day.

We finished off the month with my baby sister Megan graduating from high school. Woot! Woot! She's the last of us. It's so crazy my parents are almost empty nesters!
