 Our May has been really full!  Here are all the odds and ends pictures that never made it into a post--starting with the Lego "May" that Jack made for the library!

 Dave and Buster's Half Price Day!

 In Alice's gymnastics class they had a photo shoot one day.

 Her picture made it onto the summer camp flyer!

 Cinco de Mayo

 We went on the Mom & Me Hike again this year!
 We went skating twice this month and both times Jack won free passes by winning Red Light, Green Light!
 Dress up fun!

 We went to a new (to us) park and splash pad in Owasso.

 Last day of swimming lessons--until we start back this week!
 Last school year lunch with Great-Gran

 We went to see the new Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie.  It was really funny, though I prefer the old kids better.

 Jack and I went to the Kiddie Park.  He had just seen It, so we had to take a picture with the clown.

 Last train ride of the night!
 We finally got a new swing set!

 We also got a climbing dome.

 Hobo is really enjoying the dome, too!

 The kids got to drive the go-kart at my mom and dad's.

 It was Alice's first time to drive herself!

 Memorial Day

 We went to the pool and it was so cold the kids decided to get in from the slides.

 You know it's cold when you want to wrap up while you're in the water!

 We spent today in Kellyville at 4H's District Contest Days.  Jack entered in speech and Fabric and Fashion.

He won first place for his dog costume!

June is going to be full of fun, so I'll do my best to stay on top of posting!

School's Out, Zoo's In!

Saturday we went to Oklahoma City for a sleepover at the zoo!
Before the zoo, we stopped by the Pops in Nichols Hills.
It's not as big as the Arcadia location, but it's still nice.
And it was a great place to stop for a cool treat!
We walked all over the zoo and it was so hot and muggy!
This orangutan was done.  It's pretty much how I felt.
The otters are always fun to watch and they were putting on a show for us!
Time for the sleepover!
First there was a session on nocturnal animals.

Then we had a night hike!

There was quite a bit of lightning, so we had to wait for a bit in the snake house!
After a seemingly long but actually short and very cold night filled with the sounds of people turning on air mattresses and me talking a sleepwalking Alice into lying back down, it was time to rise and shine!
We stopped by the otters again on the morning hike.
Jack spotted another creature trying to see the lions!
We had a great time!

The Papilion at Honor Heights

 There are so many pretty butterflies!

 There's also a new garden area that has some themed beds.

 While we were in the butterfly house some new butterflies arrived!  They make them cold enough that they become inactive and then they put them in envelopes to ship.  Once they are taken out and get warmed up, they fly off into their new home.

 The kids got to help release them!

 It was so hot and humid that we had to check out the little waterfall, too!

 Jack climbed the whole thing while the rest of us waded at the bottom!

It was a great time!
