12 on the 12th [The May Chapter]


01.  Homework.  After an all-nighter Spence finally got the lights on his circuit board to blink like they were supposed to.  He tried to explain it to me but I got confused at “okay, so look at this code”.  Apparently a screen of completely random numbers and foreign symbols make the lights blink.  Who knew?
02.  Breakfast.  Toast, strawberries and a glass of milk.
03.  Tulips.  I was pleasantly surprised by the number of tulips that bloomed in my flower beds this spring.  I was certain that the deer had eaten them all back in the fall.  Turns out they left some for me.  Such kind houseguests.
04.  Cheesehead.  Jumping on the trampoline in our pajamas before getting ready for the day.
05.  Bike Trailer.  Gearing up for a bike ride to preschool.  The kids got me an odometer for Mother’s Day.  I’ve biked 13.4 miles since Sunday.
06.  Flower Pot.  My bedazzled Mother’s Day flower pot made by Brynlee.
07.  Lemonade.  Lunch on the deck with raspberry lemonade.
08.  Toys.  The kiddos entertainment while Miranda and I got our hair done.  They were hair salon champs.           
09.  Me.  Sportin' a freshly colored hairdo.
10.  Swing.  Stopped by the park to reward superb hair salon behavior and because it was b-e-a-utiful outside.
11.  Dinner.  Chips and salsa and a fajita burrito.  I was cautious to go easy on the salsa consumption this time.
12.  Trio.  Spent the last of the gorgeous day’s sunlight wrapped in a blanket on the porch swing.

Man that WAS a great day. I'm so glad we came to the park too. I really love those days when you don't get anything done because you're too busy being outside.

Wahoo on biking 13 miles! I want an odometer now so I clock how much I ride!

Your hair looks great & I love the pic of you & your kiddos. Adorable!

I could use some of that gorgeous sunshine. It's been nothing but gray skies and rain for several days. I'm ready for Spring already!

Oh, and I could definitely use that big ol' glass of raspberry lemonade too. Yum!

i love this! i can't believe you can actually get your kids to go with you to the salon. i can get maybe an eyebrow threading (5 min) before they freak. you're amazing. your hair looks amazing too!
