yay! somewhat on time this time! hahaha! may brought us warmer weather and a lot of rain! isn’t suppose to be april shower brings may flowers?! it was like april coldness brings may showers :p
well, we celebrated mother’s day this past month, as well as our mom’s birthday! every few years, my mom’s birthday will fall on mother’s day or right around it, so sometimes it’s like a double celebration in one! we had a wonderful time on mother’s day, we hosted my family and my brother in law’s family at our house. it was sweet, relaxing, and a blast to decorate for. it was a fun time, indeed.
there was a lot of hanging around outdoors. we ate a bunch of dinners alfresco, we were able to go to a flea market we have had our eyes on for a bit, we had brunch with our friends at restaurants with outdoor open dining spaces…so many fun things to explore when the weather is nice!
as you can tell, my most favorite thing to do is eating outside when it’s warm at night and ONLY if there are no mosquitos. when we were in the city, it was so easy to do so, because there weren’t many, if any mosquitos. but here in the ‘burbs, they thrive so it’s a challenge and a battle to be able to sit outside and relax without getting bit!
anyhoo, please enjoy our may snapshots:
