5 minutes of may

it has been a roller coaster of a month around here.  i was given my dream camera for my birthday from my incredible family.  then a few days later our entire house got sick and for 2 weeks we dealt with illness, a few hospital visits, and all the laundry ever.  not only did that mean i didn't get to enjoy my new camera for several days while i tried to cope with the madness, it also meant we missed out on the only week of sunshine in the entire month.  after day after day of cold rain, we decided that the damp weather wasn't enough to keep us inside anymore, so while i started sorting through our maze of stuff for an upcoming yard sale, the kids grabbed their bikes and fought off their cabin fever.

now i just need to remember to get myself to the store to buy our little guy a helmet ;)

keep circling around and head over to melissa hines's blog to see how they spent their 5 minutes of may!
