May Mania

May was a very full and busy month. It was concert season for my music stuff; John was taking finals; my baby sister got married; we went on a vacation-camping in the White Mountains (that we are pretty sure look nothing like when we went now that the fire went through)....

Grandama Merrill treated the younger grandkids to a trip to the Aquarium (while the older ones were still in school).

Abigail loved it!!!

She even spoiled us more with lunch, carousel rides, and some clothes shopping.

We used two weekends for Mikell and Marilee's wedding festivities. Winslow welcomed us from our camping trip with LOTS of wind. My family has arrived earlier to decorate - which became difficult when the power went out.

She likes to wear our shoes and dress herself.

Abigail thought she was so cool sitting in the driver's seat at the campsite.

We arrived before the Memorial Day crowds and had elk in our campground the first night.

Abigail kept trying to be strong like her Daddy.

Our trip went pretty smoothly. We just had some stress getting out the door - and then left our jackets behind. We drove into town to find something to keep warm - there's always got to be something, right? It is the wrong season for warm stuff, but we found sweatshirts.

They had a free craft for kids - Abigail still talks about her birdy feeder.

Abigail loved it when we went out on the lake - except each time she remembered how much she hated the life jacket. (It was crying then laughter and excitement back and forth.)

When John started the fire, Abigail would yell "Happy Birthday" and get all excited...

Camping was a blast, but next time we will bring a friend for Abigail or go camping with another family -- Abigail started getting a little sad when she saw other kids at the end.

We stopped by the Snowflake Temple on our way to Winslow.

We couldn't leave Winslow without Uncle Mikell taking us to "the corner".

Then - we woke up and May was over....
