The weather in Bellingham has been great for most of May. Patrice and the kids went down to Aunt Corey's house where PJ loved to jump on the trampoline. It was a great day! For mother's day Bob, Peg, Patrice, Ryan, PJ and Colt went to Birch Bay and ate lunch outside. It was a great sunshiny day. Then the big trip for May was our trip over to Spokane for Ryan's brothers graduation. Took us just shy of 10 hours to drive from Ferndale to Othello, but we made it and had a great time. Bob and Barb and Great Grandma Mercer were there so we got to see the whole Valentine clan. It was a great (but too short) weekend. The big news in May was that PJ decided she didn't want to wear diapers anymore. She now wears big girl undies (with elmo and cinderella on them). Mom and Dad are THRILLED!
Ok - the other big news that just happened (May 28th) is that Colt slept for 8.5 hours straight! And the whole house breathed a sign of relief... love sleep.
On Memorial Day, we had awesome photographer Ryan Duclos come to my parents house to take family photos. My mom snapped a few photos of PJ while we were getting set up. They are the last few photos that you see in the gallery. When we get the proofs back from the photographer, I'll add them here.
