The Rest of May

I am always catching up on blogging so I kind of run through things quick but it's better than nothing.

Ava is so adorable, but kind of a sassy 3 year old. :)

Fun Salmon Family picnic, first time getting together since the quarantine began. At Nielsen's Grove of course.

Mckinley has been playing with her friend Kiara a lot.

Kiara invited us all over to swim in her pool.

Flying the drone outside.

We discovered a new park by my parents' house that is just heavenly. Lots of shade and a beautiful shallow stream that runs through it that the kids love to play in. We've been there 3 times now.

Ava has a new little friend Zoli who is here for a few months. He's just two doors down and they have a blast playing together.

My mom's neighbor opened up her pool for anyone to go so my mom signed up for a slot and we had a great time enjoying their amazing backyard.

Sunday picnic up by Provo Temple.

I got to meet Amy's little baby Ally for the first time.

We visited my grandparent's graves for Memorial Day. This is the first time I have done this since my grandmas passed away. Grandma and Grandpa Bishop in the Lindon Cemetery.

Grandma and Grandpa Stum at the Provo Cemetery.

We spent Memorial Day with my family at that park I was talking about. Mckinley was so excited to take a family picture. It's absolutely beautiful there.

Marmee made masks for us and kids sized ones for the kids. This is such a crazy time we are living in!!

A fun dinner picnic at Brandon's parents house.

Grandpa taught the kids how to play hopscotch.

 Sidewalk chalk art.

Swimming at my mom's neighbor's house again.

Jackson still isn't too interested in walking.

Brandon created a quick fire pit in our backyard and the kids thought it was the coolest thing ever. We made delicious s'mores.

Brandon has been biking with his dad and brothers. They are doing the Salt to Saint race again this year.

Ava crashes all over the place because she insists on staying up till 10:00 most nights with the other kids. Lots of movies and TV watching around here during Corona (and always).

Jackson is ONE!

Jackson turned one!! We made sure to make him a Mickey Mouse pancake to keep with tradition.

We had to have something to give him so I bought him a puzzle and we let him unwrap some clothes.

All five of our kids on their first birthday.

All done with bottles! We fully celebrate every milestone we reach that lets us get rid of baby items! We are so happy to see him grow up. The older the kids get, the easier and more fun life gets.

He wasn't too into his cake. Which makes sense because I rarely let him get messy feeding himself.

Enjoying some amazing spring weather. Picnic at Grandma and Grandpa Salmon's.

Quick bath in the sink.

Went to Nielsen's Grove again on Mother's Day.

Then out for a walk around the neighborhood and got to play with some cute baby bunnies.

These guys are obsessed with their dad. He's the nice parent in case anyone was wondering, ha ha.

Enjoying the car their cousins gave them.

Took the kids on a walk by Utah Lake.

Found the awesome swing I had seen a few people post about.

Cute little boy in his owl towel.
