Hopeful, he answered, "have sex?"
Ummmm....actually I was talking about May baskets.
Did you guys ever make these? I remember doing this as a kid at our babysitters (Jill's Mom!). Jill, Gwen, and I would pick flowers, lily of the valley I think it was, and put them in our little baskets and then leave them on one of the neighbors doorsteps. It is a tradition I want to start with my kids.
Since we forgot this year, the closest thing we have to a May basket are the May flowers in the picture above. Keaton picked these over at Papa & Busha's this week and they sent them home with him on Friday.
May Day, which was supposed to be rainy and yucky, was a gorgeous day this year. Our original plan for the day was to spring clean our closet, but with skies like these there was just no way we could stay inside.
We spent the rest of the afternoon playing in the yard.....
(this child is all boy)
(Although there is no photographic evidence. As Keaton went to touch it, the frog jumped, which spooked Mama, who moved the camera.)
....filling the bird feeder...
(I had to call Collin from the store to ask where I would find bird seed and then he had to show me how to open the feeder, but dude, the feeder is filled!!)
....and checking out all of our flowers that are currently in bloom.
At dinner Collin said "this day...this is what weekends are all about."
I couldn't agree more.
Happy May Day everyone!
