Photo Recap...

Wow, I don't know why I can't blog anymore... but... clearly I can't.

So, the last month and a half has been full on CRAZY TOWN.

It started with Kid's Science Camp...

(did I mention that?  Me, the only female chaperone for 12 girls??  Yet, 5 men for 8 boys??  WTH?  Anyway, I did it.  Outside of the sleep deprivation I thrived.  Seriously, I was like... "I should be a professional camp counselor... this is my calling!", but don't tell anyone... I'm still trying to milk the situation for sympathy from the other parents at school.)

 (Fire building)
 (Lean-to making)
(high ropes course)
The trip was great.... and... because of that, we've decided to keep her in this school for middle school.

Then it was like...

Mother's Day:

 (breakfast in bed)
 (Baby made me these little tarts)
 (and she was pleased)
 (they didn't get me another statuette from Hallmark!!!  Rejoice!)

Mr F's Birthday:


Our Trip to Holland, MI:

 (what can I say??  Yes, this place exists.)

Baby's Spring Concert:

Kid's Spring Concert:

(front row: she plays the flute in the Beginning Band)

Our Trip to Chicago:

 (Baby's on a mission)
(after the harshest winter on record, we finally got her out here to spend her birthday gift cards!)
 (Um, please look to their right... )
(Chicago is such a beautiful city)
 (The Container Store!!  Cue angles singing)
(right after this picture, I told her he was still alive.... hahaha... that was awesome)
(Sue the T Rex @ The Field Museum)

Baby's Field Day:

 (wheelbarrowing... fyi, she HATED it)
(Mr F helping for a tug-of-war win)

Kid's Field Day: (oh, that's right, I didn't go... I can't be everywhere at once!)

Kid's Award Ceremony:
(competitive reading for the WIN!  She took 2nd place, behind an 8th grader.)

Ice Cream Social: (uh... I might have forgotten to document this...)

Kid's Last Day of School:
(If only she had friends and could function in society...)
(as you can see they are keeping their feelings for each other a secret...)

My Birthday:

Baby's Dance Rehearsal:

Baby's Dance Recital:

 (The only person she really wanted there was my step brother's girlfriend... she came!)
(Put a ring on it, Jason!!)

Baby's Last Day of School:

 (It took the whole year for her to work up the courage to climb up this structure!)
(Baby and her teacher... P.S. it was a dress up reward day)

Our Trip to Mackinac Island:

 (Ferry trip over)
 (Baby getting our trip off on the right foot by being strangely uncooperative...)
 (I'd like to report that we received a room discount for this view... alas... that is not the case)
 (I guess I'd live there...)
 (Hiking with Kid)
 (Baby peeking in the ballroom)
 (Sleeping beauties... at least the inside of our room was just as fancy as we had promised)
 (Lilac Festival Parade)
 (the parade continues)

(Best part of the trip was the evening kid's club, which allowed us two built in date nights!)

And now Summer Vacation has officially begun!
