Busy month of May!!!

**Beware: this post will be photo heavy!!!

WOW! May flew by because it was super busy for me! Here's what took a nutshell...

-I started the month with a super fun girls scrapping weekend in Ocean City! Tina, Effie, Jamie & I stayed @ my family's place & we had an absolute blast! The only bad part was that Jocelyn couldn't come down :(

-We went to Jake's Spring Fair @ school and tried to clean out the garage by selling some stuff @ the Flea Market!
-I spent Mother's Day with Jake and my sweet brother! He took us to McGregor's in Havre De Grace for brunch and a little antique browsing! It was a perfect afternoon!

-My friend Jocelyn celebrated a big birthday this year so her daughter threw her a surprise dinner @ The Melting Pot! It was so hard to keep this quiet but she was truly surprised! Awesome food, yummy drinks and fun friends!

-The very next day we were all together again for lunch @ Nick's Seafood House with our scrapclub girls! I missed getting a group shot but I love this one of a few of us on the cute stools!

-Jake's cub scout pack "graduated" from WOLF rank to BEAR rank! So proud of my scout!

-Jake got glasses! (See tire photo)
-My cousin James came up from Florida on business and for a family visit! So good to see him & spend some time together. Wish we lived closer!
-I spent Memorial Day weekend outside doing yardwork-blah! I also caught up on shows I had on DVR. Very productive!
-My brother, Matt helped put up a tire swing for Jake. (He did all the work!) It was a dream of mine to put one up for him & I smile everytime I see it!

-We celebrated my friend, Effie's birthday with a surprise dinner thrown by her husband. She was totally surprised!

-I visited the Geppi Entertainment Museum in Baltimore with my best friend, Val! We went to see the Barbie exhibit since we were big into Barbie back in the day! Val still has hers! This place was soooooooo cool! If you ever get the chance, it's definitely worth a trip. I'll post more photos this weekend. Here are a few...

-This past weekend was booked with fun plans too! Saturday was spent @ Jeremee's graduation party! Congrats to him & his beautiful girlfriend, Bree!

-We finished out the month with baby Kate's Baptism! The church & the ceremony were beautiful and Kate was as cute as ever! She's such a happy baby (well, maybe not after being plunged in the water)! Effie & Cory will be the best godpaprents!

Whew...told you there were alot of photos! I downloaded over 300 just for this month. And I didn't even take all that I wanted to b/c of issues with my flash! Thank goodness for scrappy friends who always have a camera!
Looking over all the photos today made me think about how thankful I am to have so many wonderful people (both family & friends) in my life! I don't know what I would do without them!
