We dog sat our friends dog Chewy and the kids really loved it. I'm glad that they enjoyed it, but it solidified for me the desire to never own a dog.

We started summer off with a bang of lots of swimming. One thing my kids are never going to be able to say I never took them swimming, haha! We are so grateful for amazing friends that let us use their pool whenever we wanted. We got a swimming pass to the aquatic center but rarely used it because it was just so nice to not have to worry about all the people, and after we went once and we couldn't get in for a half hour because someone had vomited in the pool, I pretty much said bubye to the community pool.

Our cute Russy boy graduated from Kindergarten. He did such a great job this year at learning and growing. I am so impressed with him and how well he makes friends and has a great time at school. He was funny in the songs that they sang because he just will not do any actions. He finally will participate int he singing so I guess I should be happy with that. But there is no way he would do the actions that go with the songs.

The Oklahoma City Dodgers were in town to play, so of course Kevy had to make sure we went. It was too much money for everyone to go. (Hello it's minor league!) so we decided to just do it as a date night. We went downtown before the game and ate out since we never get to do thing like that. We went to Cafeteria 15L. It was actually really good. It was fun to try something new. After we went to the game. It is always fun to go to a baseball game wit Kevin because he just loves it so much! It was more fun than going to another Rivercats game because we actually had someone we wanted to root for and we also got to see some players that sometimes play for the Dodgers. I also just love being with my guy, no matter what we do! The Dodgers ended up losing, of course. It seems like we don't exactly have the best luck. But it was still super fun to have a date night to a ball game.

Our Annie girl is the silliest and spunkiest little girl around! I am always so in awe at how much self confidence she has. She is never shy or nervous about things that she should be nervous about. It impresses me so much and always makes me wish I could be more like her! She did her preschool program at Miss Patty's at the end of the year and of course sang her heart out! She didn't have any reservations and I love it! I cant believe that our Annie girl is done with preschool and will be heading to Kindergarten. She is ready though, I cant wait to see her as a kindergartner.

I love Mother's Day each year. Not because I think I am the most amazing mother, I know I have so much room for improvement. But I love it because I get to celebrate the fact that I am a mother to these amazing kids. I grew up with a mother that hated Mother's Day. So bad in fact that it was so dreaded because she was so depressed and hard to be around on that day because she felt so inadequate. It makes me sad just to think about it. I am glad that I don't feel the same way. I love this day because even though I make so many mistakes I know I am giving it my all. I know that I literally put everything I am into being a mom.
Its no secret that it's all I ever wanted to do. When I was in second grade we had a big program and spent a lot of time on what we wanted to be when we grew up. Everyone made these large self portraits of themselves as what they wanted to be and then our parents came and we had a program and each got up and talked about our picture. I drew myself as a mom holding a baby. Nowadays little girls would probably be shamed for that, but luckily I wasn't. So everyday I try and find that joy in my life because I am living out my dream.

There will come a time in a couple of years when I will no longer have a post about Fairytale town, and that will be a sad day! I love this place. Its so fun to go every year with Miss Patty's place and get to see the silly puppet show and then have fun on all the slides and play equipment. It was fun to take Clara and Annie one more time because next year it will just be Clara left! They had a lot of fun together. I love seeing the relationship that they have together.
