Chesnie got a new scooter from Grandma and Grandpa (Mattie got one for Christmas)

The girls hanging upside down under a table at a wedding.

Trying to get all of them to look at the camera is impossible!

Mattie loves Samaria!

And so do I.

Chesnie wanted a duckling to swim in her pool.

A tough game of Uno with a 7 month old, 22 month old, 3 and a 4 year old.

Chesnie tuckered out at the gym.

The girls waiting for their turn on the trampoline.

Mattie and Jordan on the bars.

Chesnie with her birthday balloons on her birthday morning.

Angel food cake, this is the first birthday cake we have had for either of the girls and Ches loved it! Thanks grandma!

Eating her birthday pizza.

Chesnie turned 3 on May 5th. She is our little Cinco De Mayo baby and even has the dark skin to prove it. We had a Little Mermaid birthday all planned for Saturday before her birthday but unfortunately she was sick and it rained. My parents and Matthew's parents came up for the celebration though and Chesnie was happy to spend the time with them. She got to open presents all throughout the day. She got Charlotte's Web and watched it with grandma and grandpa. She requested pizza for dinner and enjoyed that very much. She also had angel food cake for dessert which is the first cake we have had for either girls birthday. She loved being able to blow out the candles and being sung to. On her actual birthday she wanted to go to the gym with her friends. It was the first time that we had been out since she was sick and Mattie had gotten the same cold. She enjoyed jumping on the trampolines, swinging from the rings and bars but she tuckered out at the end. She got a new scooter from grandma and grandpa and was so thrilled that it had a basket to carry all of her stuff. Now Mattie and her can ride around together on their princess scooters!
My best friend Kara and her two kids Caleb and Sam surprised us and came into town for Chesnie's birthday. We love them so much and miss them so very much. We had a great time with them here at our house. Mattie adores Samaria and was her little shadow. Even when Sam was nursing Mattie was right there beside her. She loves to help change her and hold her. She picked out Sam's clothes every day and then ran to her room to pick out something that she could wear that would match.
We went to Roseville this last weekend for a wedding. The girls were not thrilled about the 3 hour car trip but were excited to see Gma and Papa and Grandma and Grandpa again. They were really good for the wedding and enjoyed swinging on a bar under the table at the reception. Luckily we knew everyone at the table so no one minded the bumps and thumps and no one else could see them! Out of sight out of mind right?
Well, that is our May so far. More to come I am sure.
