Where did May go?

Seriously, where did May go? One day it was Mother's day and then I woke up and it's Memorial day. I guess time really does fly when you're having fun.

This month has been pretty busy. Nathan finished up school and is out for the summer. He is so excited. So is Brandon. He loves having Nathan home all day long to play and argue with. We went to the Air Force Museum and fantasized about flying every aircraft we saw. The boys were pretty excited to see some of the jets that were in the Transformer movies. I thought Nathan's eyes were going to pop out of his head when he saw "Storm Scream" (I think that's his name). He gasped and asked Brian if he could make it Transform for him. Then Brandon crouches down and said "transform" in a very deep voice. When nothing happened he looked at Nathan and said "nope, didn't work." And then they were off.
We've went swimming and had cook outs, played outside every minute the sun has been shining. The ice cream truck stopped by yesterday. She's such a sweet lady. They boys were jumping up and down, squealing and clapping their hands as she pulled up. She asked them if they had been waiting on her, and in unison they both sighed a yeeessss!
This summer we are planing on visiting family and friends, swimming as much as possible, cooking everything we can on the grill and staying outside until we can't keep our eyes open another second longer. So much fun to be had, so little time.

Too cool

The boys got some new shades the other day for the summer. Last year Brandon broke two pairs within a week, so we'll see how long these last. Brandon wanted orange ones but we couldn't find any so he settled for red with silver flames. Nathan was pretty excited that he found some with skulls on the side. He thinks he's so tough.

Good times

This is what the kids look like every single time they spend the afternoon at my grandparents house. Dirty and exhausted.
