Happy 23rd Birthday to Erin!!!

Happy 23rd Birthday to Erin! Erin’s birthday was on May 22 so I’m a little slow in posting. The week was rushed getting ready to go camping but we have been celebrating all month with graduation, my birthday, Russ’ birthday, Mike’s birthday, Mother’s Day, and then Erin’s BD. We all chipped in and bought Erin a GPS. She occasionally has a tendency to get lost when going to a strange place so we all thought a GPS would serve her well. (Besides, I can borrow it when I go on a trip! Maybe she got her sense of direction from me. Ya think!) She loves polka dots so her cake appropriately had polka dots on it. Her birthday cake was late due to all the chaos - she had just gotten home from work!
During our camping trip -

Parker had his first “finger food”

Pete learned how to play “Fish”

Rylee and Parker shared the Pack and Play (Rylee hated it when she was little but just had to get in it with Parker)

It was nice to be at the park and relax. The weather was just right except for the last day when it was way too hot. The air conditioning in the camper is great and I slipped away every afternoon for a wonderful short nap in the camper under the very cold air.

Now, just a few random pictures!

Have you ever seen a sweeter face?

I received a Hydrangea from Lynda when Ashley and Erin’s Pappaw George died and this is the first year it has bloomed. I have babied this plant and was so happy to see it bloom this year. The frost killed the blooms last year when I was in New Orleans.

Erin getting her graduation ring from Russ. Luke was happy too! (Erin looks like Kellie Pickler in this picture - everyone at the hospital calls her Kellie!)

Ashley after graduation thinking I sure am glad this is not me graduating and facing the dreaded "NCLEX" exam!

Erin and Crystal - Saturday night at Crystal's wedding. She was a beautiful bride! Congratulations Crystal and George!

That's all for now but today is Ashley's birthday so I will post again very soon......
