Showers, graduation parties, and vacations!

May means the school year is ending (Praise God!), and I'm sure no one was more excited than my cousin. He is officially now a Baylor Bear!

Kacee and me enjoying the nice weather outside while visiting with family and friends.

But before school wrapped up, my wonderful 3rd grade team threw me a wedding shower. Isn't this rose beautiful? There were several vases of them.

My mom (taking the picture) and my aunt, Fonda, joined me at the shower.
A group of my mom's friends (they are my friends too!) threw me a shower as well. Below are the wonderful women that threw the shower, but they also witnessed God's love to me as counselors of my church's youth group while I was in high school.

While at this shower I received one of the best gifts my mom has ever given me: My Zeta T-shirt quilt!!!!! All it took was me getting married ;-)
A few weeks later, Cary and I joined some friends in Fredricksburg, TX. We rented out the three bedrooms in a cute bed and breakfast (The Roadrunner- highly recommend it!). We visited several of the local wineries and then headed on over to the big ole town of Luckenbach, TX. For those of you that have never been, there is only a bar and a store there... my kind of place! They had bands playing, and we all enjoyed sitting by the creek, visiting, and listening to the music.

The soon-to-be Cooks, the Bakers, and the Murphys at Becker Vineyards. They were having Lavender Fest that day as well.

Cary wasn't sure of the purpose of this picture, but it turned out cute.
Boys being boys
No, that is not my beer but we thought it would enhance the picture
The next weekend, Cary's mom came down and helped us "revamp" our front yard. Below is just a sneek peek. You can't really apprecite it until everything grows in, but let me tell you- it was A LOT of work!

Memorial Day weekend has become a tradition at Cary's friend's lakehouse in Palestine, TX.
It's so peaceful and quiet while looking out over the lake.
And then this crew wakes up!

Washers is the game of choice around here, with a twist of course for the losing team! Cary and Kylan believe that they are # 1.

I can't believe we survived all the May events. Thank goodness summer is approaching, and maybe we can rest.....
