I got a call from a lady at the Mayor's office telling me that Elise had won an Essay contest for her entire Elementary School. Funny thing was I had no idea she had even entered a contest, I didn't know the topic or had even read it. Ha! I just pretended I knew what the lady was talking about and found out when and where she needed to be in order to receive her award. Elise was thrilled! We went to the Mayor's meeting and she received her certificate and $50 (which we did not know about until that night). Let's just say Elise was pretty stoked! We also had a fun visit from my friend Kylee and her cute kids. We went swimming, to the park, ate popsicles on the tramp and played outside. It was a swell time, my kids keep asking when they can play with Luke, Lily and Liam again :)

She was a happy girl!
You make a promise to your son that if he is really good you will take him swimming. He succeeds so you get everything ready and head over only to find out the pool is closed for a private party. Sad :( I decide it never hurts to ask and so yes we were granted special permission to join the party. This private party was a school field trip that only consisted of 12 kids and 4 adults, so basically we had the place to ourselves. It was amazing!!!!!!
This girl loves the pool

Carter is finally tall enough to go down the fast slide - crazy!
A week later we head to the Aquatic Center with my friend Kylee and her kids that were visiting from Arizona. However this time the Aquatic Center was a zoo. Still had a blast though!
Elise and Lily were fast friends

Park fun - Seriously we couldn't believe it had been 15 years since we last hung out. Crazy how time flies!
For Memorial Day Weekend we took a quick trip up to Wyoming. Then we started the week by going for daily walks and playing at the park. Summer is really here!
Got this cute pic of the kiddos last Sunday
I love it!

Signed up the kids for the summer reading program at the library. They got free bookmarks and bags. Pretty cute. Every 14 days they bring in their signed card for daily reading and they receive a prize.
