My favorite month of the year flew by. At least we have much fun to show for it. Cate turned 4. And we had a fun party. We spent a long weekend in Louisville, celebrating my brother’s wedding. We also went to Churchill Downs and visited with family. And then we spent Memorial Day weekend at Kentucky Lake for the second year in a row. Consider it a new tradition.
And those are just the Hill family highlights. One of my favorite parts was having my sister and brother-in-law in the country for much of that! In fact, I spent three of the four weekends in May with some portion of my family. I consider that a blessing.
Other May activities included a date for my 32nd birthday, a baby shower for a dear friend and another friend’s birthday party. Plus we picked strawberries and finished out Cate’s first year of preschool. Add to all those celebrations the ordinary life with a 4-year-old girl and 18-month-old boy, and I found myself rather busy.
So busy, I haven’t even gotten to share some of it with you, blog readers. So, here I go …
Laine was a beautiful, beautiful bride. We’re happy she’s officially a Hill after already being part of the family for years. And below you can see the two colors of bridesmaid dresses mixed together. It looked lovely. My 4-year-old Cate took that picture below too. Good eye, sweet girl!
The thing I loved about Laine and Kevin planning a Friday night wedding was it left Saturday and Sunday to spend with family in a less busy setting. Greg and my brother-in-law Zac had never been to Churchill Downs, so we spent the afternoon watching some horse races.
And then there was Memorial Day weekend at Kentucky Lake, which included …
… messy boys. Ben and Jax have a couple things in common. They both have sensitive skin and messy, messy boys. Aunt Cassie didn’t care about their messes and posted with them. The unintentional coordinating outfits were too cute — and messy! — to pass up.
I can’t say I’m sad to look at clearer June and July calendars, but, May, you were fun, while you lasted. And so I don’t forget you, I took plenty of pictures throughout the month, especially at the wedding.
