May in Review...Take 2!

We took our first camping trip in Texas with the Humphrey's (my last review started with a picture like this but we were both wearing make-up...we still look good!) to Lake Mineral Wells. It was a lot of fun and Kimball and I decided we want to invest more time and money into making it one of our hobbies. Hopefully in the years to come we'll be able to take some high powered toys with us, but for now good friends and camp fire food is all we need!

Kimball bought a new truck....*sigh of relief*...now we can all stop hearing it from him about trucks, trucks, and more trucks! I'll admit I really like it and we all fit comfortably with two more seats to spare! It's a dark blue color, it looks black in this picture but it's a beautiful midnight blue!

I made this card and framed gift for Mya's teachers as the traditional end of year gift. I have been practicing more with my new camera and am getting better, so I took the apple picture and framed it, I had a dilemma on B&W or color (see post below) so I just gave them both a print of each with the other print inside, so they could decide.

Mya graduated from her Two year old class and everyone got their name called and they walked up and got their little diploma,Mya was the only one who felt the need to JUMP off the stage once they handed it to her. This was followed by a slideshow of pictures from the year, very cute!

We love Mrs. Audra and Mrs. Jennifer and will miss them very much!

With school officially out we decided to break out the old blow up pool, this time we rigged up a water slide with it! The kid's have so much fun, Aiden especially, as you can see he took up most of the pool with his veritable catamaran!

For FHE Kimball had the great idea to take the kids to the Dallas temple grounds to take pictures and then stopping at the LDS bookstore (not like Utah where theres a Deseret Book on every corner) to get a Book of Mormon for Families, which is such a great study guide, I'm excited to be able to use it as a family. Then we had an early dinner at Olive Garden which was yummy, then home where Kimball and I watched Quantum of Solace.

I hope to not be doing so many reviews in the future, I'm gonna try and take my blog in a photo journal direction. I'd like to remember our everyday routine and not just our events in life...hopefully I can write a little bit more often.

Yeah I sill want to go camping when the weather is nice, looks fun. Also that is a great idea to go to the Temple for FHE. Cute pics!

Very Cute Holly... your family is adorable!

FYI... Turner Falls in Oklahoma is a fun camping trip and not very far from here either. They have a pretty neat water fall where you can swim.

Cali was looking at the pictures with me and always pointed to Mya. She can't wait to play with her. Aiden has so much hair and is so big now! He looks like a miniature Kimball. Love the pictures!

So you're official Texans when you get a truck, right? ;o)

Glad you had a great month. We like Turner Falls, too. We also like Lake Ray Roberts.
