Sam challenged himself by doing cat's cradle with a set of paper claws he made. It sort of worked!
This article in The WSJ had me saying "Yikes!" for the upcoming summer. (As it turned out I should have been worrying about tornadoes instead, but I'll get to that in a few weeks!)
Our Cape house is right underneath where it says "Cape Cod" on the map below, close to the water. Fortunately the shark sightings are (still) rare on that side of the Cape.
The WWI Lego plane that Sam put together for my dad. Which my dad then dismantled for his other grandson Shane to put together. Which I thought was weird of my dad to do. 🤷
Chilling out on my chaise lounge on Mother's Day.
A nice treat from church.
Our pool was opened and the water was very dark. This was no bueno.
John at a track meet, in the orange shirt. He was pretty good at hurdles.
John wrote a sophisticated editorial for The WSJ. And I didn't even know about it until I turned to it. Ha ha.
A beautiful spring rainbow with a faint double rainbow above it.
I received a surprise Edible Arrangement from some women from my mom's ward who stayed at the Cape house for a weekend and sent me this as a thank you. So sweet (literally!).
The pool water was back to normal! We didn't know it yet, but the heat pump was broken and had to be replaced the following month. But at least the water was clean. Cold, but clean.
Me and my honey 😘
These are a few of my favorite things! (Rainy days, birds, and trees.)
The Bas Bleu catalog always has the best covers.
John's spring band concert. He's up there somewhere on the stage that I graduated from high school on.
I enjoyed a delicious al fresco lunch with Meredith and Sharalyn at the end of the month (at a haunted historic local restaurant, no less!). I got a lobster roll--a great way to welcome the upcoming summer!
