Where did May go? Seriously, the month just flew. Here we are at the end of the month and Mason and I are getting ready to go camping with my family. We had planned on leaving Saturday after Austin leaves to go to Chile but we are taking off a couple of days early to spend some time with my dad because truthfully he isn't in that great of shape. Austin understands that we won't get to do this much longer. Mason starts preschool in September so that will greatly cut down on our traveling.

For 4 year preschool being free they sure do ask a whole lot of income questions. I know it is because it isn't resolved yet whether it will be free or not this year but they aren't getting our income information. Sorry, no way. I've seen the pay scale for the new year if it doesn't end up being free and we are screwed. SCREWED I say!! And to think we didn't enroll him in the 3 year old preschool because it was gonna cost 70 a month. Just double it. It might end up we take him to Webster City and enroll him in the catholic program. It would be cheaper even with the gas. Very aggravating! (that ends my complaining for the month of May)

We had storms blow through here this afternoon and Mason's playground became a casualty. I didn't see it happen but I do know it is laying down about 10 feet from where it was... I'm guessing that the slide is a lost cause. I'm really hoping that Austin can get it fixed while we are gone this week. Otherwise it is going to be a long summer!

Well I better go finish getting our stuff around for this weekend. I have to finish washing our sleeping bags and gather up all Mason's clothes and maybe a couple of toys too. I can't wait to see everyone... okay almost everyone!

And My Bestest Friend Became A Mrs.

The weather was beautiful even if it was a bit windy. I'm now sporting my first sunburn of the season...

Dawn was absolutely gorgeous! I couldn't be more happy for her. Bobby and her are two peas in a pod... I still can't believe what she did after the ceremony but you'll have to wait for those photos until tomorrow! For now you can enjoy these.

Now I've only got about 500 more photos to go through... I know that sounds like a lot but really I'm about half through... 972 photos were taken that day... I think my eyes have gone square... or rectangle really... either way they are no longer round.

A special thanks to my friend Jess who came along to help. I really appreciate everything you did! Hopefully we can do this again soon!
