End of April and Beginning of May

The end of April was busy as usual.
On April 27th, we went to Spartanburg for the weekend, while Mason was in Albany, GA for a golf trip with Eric. The boys and I had a great time! It was Hudson's birthday, so family came as well. We went to a great park on Saturday morning that had a train ride, which the boys thought was awesome. After the park, it was lunch time and more fun back at the Dupler's then it was off to Hudson's pool party! John Lawrence loves to swim so he had a ball. After the party was over, we went out to dinner and finally to bed. The next day was more pool time at Mom and Ron's hotel pool and from there it was off to Hollywild. It is a zoo for exotic animals and some of them have been in famous movies. The boys loved it! The Dupler's were wonderful hosts -the weekend was perfect!

John Lawrence's last day of preschool was May 10th. What a sad day for me, but I think he will miss it as well. He had an end of the year party and it was a lot of fun. Can't post pictures because I forgot my camera!

May 11-13th
We went to Beaufort for the weekend to see Mom. We had a great time and also got to go to my friend Jenny's daughter's pool birthday party. It was fun and nice seeing Jenny on that trip as well. We also went to the beach on this Bft trip. Mason reminded me in all of our years together I had never taken him to my hometown beach. Mom kept Mac for us so Mason, JL and I got to go and had a wonderful time. We went up in the Lighthouse and looked for crabs and even found a starfish. Sunday was Mother's Day. We went out for lunch before leaving Beaufort. It was nice spending the morning with my Mom on such a special day.

John Lawrence's 3 year old Checkup

On May 2, we went to the doctor for JL's 3 year old Check up and he was so brave. He had to do so many things at this appointment. I was dreading it! He had to pee in a cup, get his weight and height checked, get his finger pricked (to check his iron), and get 1 shot. He survived and never cried! As a treat he got some Gummy Bears. It is amazing what kids can and will do. They can handle so much more than we think.

Here they are:
Weight: 39lbs 95%
Height: 41.25 in 95%
