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.

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

Lily's 7th Birthday

Lily turned 7 this year and wanted a My Little Pony cake similar to Rylee's.  I didn't want to do exactly the same, so I looked around for a different one.  Rylee had picked hers from a picture.  Since Lily's favorite pony is Rainbow Dash, I made a rainbow cake.  

It was plain when I took it to Mimi's and Lily helped me put the decorations on it.

And we added sixlets.

She got many gifts and had lots of fun opening them.

Evening's guests were Mimi, Conor, Camryn, Ceara, Rylee

Molly, Austin, Gage, Carter,

Not pictured are Pops, Betty, an myself.

No trick candles this time. 

After the cake and icecream, Conor and Camryn took the girls for rides on the 4-wheeler.

They did not all 4 go at the same time, the above was for picture purposes only.

When we got back to our house, we set up the Karaoke Machine that she got for her birthday and the girls took turns singing.  

Rylee can't read yet, but Lily tried to help her out.

We had a great evening.  My Lily bug is another year older.  <3 growing="" nbsp="" p="" quickly.="" so="" up="">
