May's Past

May has always been a great month for me. In the past, college would wind down in the middle of May and it is definitely evident in my May's past. Things always got a little more fun once the summer officially began.

May 2009
-I started working for my Aunt at her in home daycare for the summer. It was fun to spend so much time with her and really get to know her. We spent a lot of time playing ColorKu which is basically sudoku but with a physical board and different colored balls that you use.
-My cute little puppy was born. My dad breeds german shorthair pointers so I actually got to see my baby from when she was a tiny little puppy.
-My little sister went to prom and we took these pictures together. She picked me up in the first one and I tried to pick her up in the second one. My mom took the picture and only got our faces.

May 2010
-My little sister went to her senior prom and we took more pictures.
-Richard and I went to Vegas to visit his cousin and his aunt. His cousin was getting confirmed and Richard was her confirmation sponsor.
It was our first time to Vegas together and although we were not old enough to gamble we still had fun just exploring the town.
We stayed in a hotel for about half the trip so that we could experience Vegas a little. While we stayed there we were able to see a lot of the fun free stuff that Vegas has to offer.
One night we went on a date to the restaurant at the top of the Stratosphere. We went to the top of the stratosphere and were able to see the strip up there which was pretty fun. We then ate dinner in the restaurant that slowly spun while you ate so that you could see a 360 degree view of Vegas. It was a different experience.
We also went to see the Lion King and had the best seats in the house. It was awesome to be so close to the action.
We stayed with Richard's Aunt the rest of the trip and she took us to see the Hoover Dam and also to Red Rock Canyon where we were able to do a little hiking.

May 2011
-Since we had just closed on our house at the end of April, we spent the first few weeks of May painting and fixing up our house so it was move in ready. We had a lot of help from family and friends to help get it ready. Here are some before and afters. We painted just about every wall in the house.
-We moved in at the end of May and had to recruit aunts, uncles, cousins, friends and sisters to help us move since our dads decided to go on a fishing trip together the weekend we decided to move.

May 2012
-Richard and I went to a ballet together since we had never been. The ballet ended and we both looked at each other to ask if either of us understood what we just watched. Nope, neither of us did.
-Richard graduated from college and I went with his family and my parents to watch. We then went out with friends later to celebrate.

May 2013 is seen here.

Whew that is a lot of pictures. It is so much fun to be able to look back at all these memories.
