Every girl needs her toes lookin' pretty for summer, and Ava is no exception! I found some pretty pink nail polish with a special super skinny brush perfect for little toes! When she was napping I quickly painted those little toes, and Voila! Pretty in pink!

I enjoyed a wonderful morning at Leading Edge Academy, attending Hunter's Kindergarten Graduation. Our little pumpkin has learned so much this year. The ceremony began with a slide show, which of course made me teary. They asked each child what they wanted to be when they grew up, and Hunter's response was a "destruction worker." Such sweet innocence! I thought how sweet that really is, he obviously wants to be just like his Daddy! They also asked what he learned this year, he said he learned to paint (he IS our little artist). He's grown and learned so much this year! We are so proud of our Hunter!

Well it's heating up in AZ...time for water fun! We had our first of many trips to Mesquite Grove Aquatic Center this weekend. First of all, this place is the deal of the Season, only $1 per kid, and $2.25 per adult...$8.50 for our whole family!
It's basically a mini water park, complete with zero depth entry interactive water play for the littles, slides for the big kids (including Daddy!), lap pool (who the heck swims laps at a water park?), lazy river (Carson calls them boat races), splash pad, and vortex if you like to swim in circles.

We were excited to have grandpa visit us this weekend! He was in town for the weekend to attend Jessica's graduation from Law school. He got to meet Ava for the first time too! On Saturday we all went down to Tucson for the graduation and after party. I caught this great picture of a dust devil right next to the highway on the way down!

At the boys school, they earn character bucks for good behavior. On Fridays they get to go to the student store and shop. Sometimes they save up their bucks for a big purchase. On Friday, when I picked up from school, Logan looked on edge. I didn't know why, and I decided not to ask until I could get him in private at home or I was sure he was bothered. Not long after we got home, he came up to me and said, "Mom, I bought you something." He held up a little box, with a sticker on it that read "40." It was a necklace, it said "#1 Mom" inside of a heart. "I spent all of my character bucks on it Mom, the whole 40. I was going to buy two bags of Water Balloons, but I saw this and decided to buy this instead. I've been saving for a while," he said. Pretty sweet, don't you think!

Mothers Day. On the day that my kids are giving thanks for me, and all I do...I feel very blessed by the abundance I have been blessed with! They seem so big to me, but I know one day I will look back, and see their pictures, and realize how little they are. This year I wanted to take the opportunity to make hand and foot print crafts with them...to try to capture this moment forever. They came out really precious, and now framed and proudly hang on my wall!

Stumbled upon on accident, Home Depot has a monthly workshop for kids. All for free, the kids get a kit to make a craft. The boys love hammering, nailing, and painting their wood creations! They get aprons, certificates of completion, pins...Home Depot really goes all out!
