Yesterday we planted some things and spread some mulch out back between the newly finished retaining walls. One more step toward the end of that project...... Today Paxton and I went for a walk with Grampa (Kent). We came across a couple of baby birds in our field. Paxton chased one down and picked it up. The poor thing was too little to fly so he didn't stand much chance against Paxton. He held it for a few minutes and then put it down and off it ran. It's mother was a little perturbed!! Mom and Dad watched the kids this evening so Johanna and I could go out to eat for our Anniversary. Tomorrow it will be 8 years!!!

Today was Paxton's last day of pre-school. He says he doesn't want school to end, but I am sure he will have fun this summer at the pool and playing outside. The year sure did go by fast!!

We finally broke down and hired someone to fix the stone retaining wall out back that had fallen down. Here are a few before and after pictures. Now we have to do the patio part and some landscaping. One step at a time....

Shaelyn got her first ride on the lawn mower on Saturday. Ellie and Ava came up on Saturday afternoon and played outside with Paxton. Then we went down to Brad and Shelley's for supper that evening. Sunday we went out to eat for lunch to celebrate Mother's Day with Mom and Dad, Brad and Shelley's family and Grampie. Paxton went home with Ellie and Ava and played at their house until gospel meeting. We went to Kimball's for supper with Brad and Shelley's and Jobe and Mamie's families. The place was insanely busy!!

Monday afternoon a bunch of the kids and mothers came by and the kids played at the swing set and sand box. Such nice weather for playing outside. Then it was off to softball.

On Friday I took the day off from work and we went down to Boston to the Aquarium. It was fun to see the Penguins and all the other fish and other creatures there. We also saw an IMAX film while we were there. It was a 3D film and very interesting. Fun day!!
