June Fridays with the Grands

Ceara got to keep the girls during the afternoon to evening and take them swimming, so we went to her house to pick them up.  

Carter was fascinated with a video Pops was showing him on his phone.

The girls held hands to go to the car, I thought it was sweet so I tried to take a picture.

Carter came back to our house, too.  I was making cupcakes, but took time out to snuggle with him.

Lily and Rylee eating their typical Saturday morning breakfast.

Then out to pick some berries.

We went to Mason's graduation party (that's what the cupcakes were for) and the girls got to swim.

We went to the farmer's market one Saturday.  Mimi and Camryn went with me - it was just girls as Pops stayed home and Conor was at Soccer.

The Library has a story time on the Kid's Saturday that we watched.  Rylee participated in the little dance.  

The police had a tent there and took pictures of kids.  

They also gave out coloring books - which Rylee is working on below.

The girls loved playing on all the wood that was left after the tree was taken down.

They even got a broom and was sweeping.  Designating certain areas the "living room" and "kitchen".  Rylee even took some toilet paper out and made an area the bathroom.  She was very disappointed that I told her she could not use the bathroom in the wood and I took the toilet paper back to the bathroom.  

Sleepy baby:

Lily didn't come one of the Fridays.  Rylee wanted some Pineapple juice, so we made some.

She slept on the cot in the living room - they take turns and it was Rylee's turn anyway.

Breakfast in "bed" - bacon and fruit, with Pineapple juice to drink.

Rylee's new outfit:

Carter came with mommy to pick Rylee up.  He is such a happy baby.

June he turned 6 months.  He's such a joy.

Lily was here without Rylee again and she wanted to make marshmallow slime - which didn't turn out well.  It was more like play-doh, but she enjoyed making it.

The sport this year is T-ball for Lily.  So, every Saturday from April til Mid June we took her to her games.  Rylee was not interested in going, so all of these are the pictures I took of Lily during T-ball:

First game

Various games throughout the months: 

Lily was playing catcher, and I happened to get a video of her making a great catch.  It is within the first couple of seconds, so watch again if you missed it.  :)  She was very proud of herself. 

She and her sister, Anna, were the only 2 girls on the team.  They took 2nd place in the tournament.

It may look like she has on shorts, but... as soon as the game was over, she took her shoes and socks off, pulled the pants up as far as she could, and put her sandals on.  

She said she liked T-Ball, but didn't love it because it was too hot.  The long pants and tall socks in the sun didn't help.  When asked if she would want to play again, she said no.  lol

May Fridays with the Grands

Ceara took the pictures of Rylee in the woods below, but I wanted to post them here as well.  

Carter was playing with my phone in the selfie mode and took his own picture here.  

Hanging with Pops

Lily had a Spring Musical with her school.  That's her on the far right, last row.  Ya know, just in case you couldn't find her.  ;)

Rylee was on a cruise one weekend so we just had Lily.  We all went to Mimi's to hang out. 

Conor was dancing and wanted Lily to join.

Then he danced over and took her spot.

Then we played a few games of Memory.

The below is just to show how fast the woods grew.  

Carter is 5 months old now

The girls painted flower pots with Pops

Rylee made one to look like a watermelon.  All her idea, all her execution.

Lily liked the Bling.

We kept Carter so his mom could go buy a new (to her) car.  We hung out in the front yard for a while.  Rylee was with Pops and Conor, but Lily stayed with me and Carter for a while.

And Lily got to feed him.  This was just water as he had already drank the bottle left, but mom was running late and we were trying to give him something to hold him over.

Ceara and her babies.

Rylee first / last days of school.

Lily first / last days of school. 

They've grown so much in just a school year.  <3 p="">
