May was incredibly busy. Isn't it for everyone? Not only was I swamped with getting ready for girls camp, but the month was filled with school events, room mom stuff, recitals, games, etc. Some of the highlights... Jadyn's 1st grade class did a Mother's Day program. It was the cutest thing ever. Makes every mom's heart just burst with pride! The picture with the two girls are Jadyn and her good friend Kendall. Aren't they cute? Also in May, Jadyn and Brooke had a piano recital. Both did a great job! We hope they continue on developing this talent. The kids also all had fun with their school field day. Of coarse here they call it May day. Same thing. The kids were so fun to watch running all around doing their relays. It's great being a Mom. But, the most exciting thing about May was that we surprised the kids with a trip to Disney World. (See slide show below) I've always wanted to surprise our kids with a trip like that. They have never been to any Disney park (ok, Bren had. But he was barely 2 and didn't remember) We found out that the kids' grades were turned in the Friday before they got out. So, we took them out a week early. I packed up all their stuff without them knowing. Jeff & I woke them up at 4:30 in the morning, gathered them in the same room and yelled to them that we were going to Disney World! It was awesome! They had no clue. It was a fabulous trip (minus the van breaking down) and one that we'll remember forever. What were their favorite things? Regan - It's a Small World, seeing the Princesses, and riding the carousel. Jadyn - going on the Journey into the future at Epcot (lame, but the kids loved it!) Brooke - Space Mountain. She rode it many, many times. Brennan - riding the monorail. Yes, that's right. Riding the monorail. Yeah. The tram that takes you to the parks. No, he's not much of a dare devil. Whatever floats your boat I say. He just rode that thing and kept singing the song from "Rent" when they were riding the subway. Kinda funny, huh? It was a magical vacation though. The kids were troopers, didn't argue, and didn't complain! Yea Disney!
