Harmons in May


May was full of more baseball, baseball parties, friend’s birthday parties, camping and graduations. Also Jeff’s cousin got married and we made a quick family weekend to North Carolina.

Ian graduated Kindergarten May 25th. His ceremony was so cute. Full of songs and what each student wanted to be when they grew up. Ian said he wanted to be a “Skate Board Rider”. We told him just as long he goes professional in the X Games and makes lots of money – so he can buy his old parents nice thing and set us up in a nice big retirement house. HA! I got this on video – and when Ian walked across the stage to get his diploma I tried to videotape and get a picture, well I learned I can’t do that! I got a horrible picture AND I accidentally tilted the video camera up – so I didn’t get Ian’s diploma getting on tape at all! I got all his entire class, except him. I am a horrible mother and he will probably be in therapy for this for years to come!

Blake also graduated from his Army Post Pre-K Program. It was so cute, I also got this on video – and had friends take the picture. Which, I still have to get! Again, I am sure that Blake will be in therapy as well since I don’t have a picture of him getting a diploma either!

Our quick get away to North Carolina was fun. We saw Jeff’s cousin get married and had fun at their reception. It was kid free! Jeff’s aunt hooked us up with a baby sitter who watched the kids in the hotel room! SCORE – Date Night! It was great to catch up with the Harmon side of the family – it had been a few years since we had seen them all. We all met up for breakfast the next morning. It was a blast seeing the kids play with all the grownups. The Harmon’s’ were excited to finally meet Laurel as well!
We can never have a good picture!
{See picture under another post few days ago of us all dressed up!}

My mom and Ron came up over Memorial Day weekend. That was great to see them as well. Ron hadn’t seen the kids in a while and mom hadn’t seen Laurel since she was born! Also, we had plans to go camping – so they watched the kids one night and we were able to go camping with our friends – SCORE another KID FREE Event! We had fun sleeping in our two man tent. We had taken the kids out the day before to go swimming in the lake and enjoy a day in the sun. We told ourselves we are going to go camping more often and do more outdoor things (weather permitting, since it is 100 degrees in the summer here in the south) because the boys just loved it. Laurel- she tolerated it! She enjoyed the water!!

2 man tent with electric! Gotta have coffee.
