May Sweet 16, Confirmation and a New Place

May brought lots of change and events!
We celebrated our youngest's 16th birthday!
It's hard to believe he's that old.
We have yet to allow him the privilege to get behind the wheel of the car.
A checklist of items needs to be ticked off before that will be allowed to happen.
He started his day off with a stack of 16 pancakes!
We had a big family dinner at the Cheesecake Factory in which he brought along his good friend.

On Mother's Day we made the drive south to our friends who live just north of Vancouver WA.
Their son is our Godson, who had the confirmation of his baptism ceremony in church that morning.
We were happy to be there to witness this major milestone in his life, then enjoy a grill out afterwards socializing with his family.  A good day indeed!

We end this post with how our month started....moving to a new place!
After 9 years in a great house, we realized that we were spending more money then we needed to for a place that was just too large for our current needs.  2 empty rooms and one unused room will bring you to that conclusion quickly, not to mention the fact that we were paying to heat and maintain those empty/unused spaces as well! 
We really desire to move into the city and live a more urban life, but we realize that will be more ideal in 2-3 years, after the youngest is graduated and on his own!
So, we found a great 2 bed 2 bath apt, one mile from the old house, which keeps us in 'our' neighborhood we love so much and the baby in his school. 
New place = new furniture!
I was so happy to get new furniture and I am so in love with it, how it looks, feels, everything!

April iphone photos

I have been very remiss this year in picking up my camera and shooting pictures.
I miss it, yet I don't!  When I really miss it is when I look back on my photos from each and every day last year.  Makes me sad I didn't do it again this year! =(
My idea of downsizing to just monthly photos hasn't worked as well since I haven't been using my camera.  I didn't pick it up once in April!  All my photos are from my iphone this month.
We spent the better part of the month packing up to make the move to a new place.
I failed to get photos of that process. 
In place of it we have:
One of our favorite barista's at 'our' Starbucks.  Shelly...she's so much fun and so funny!
Bailey Easter basket!  Michel wanted me to pick up one of those kiddy pre made ones for his Easter this year....just before he turned 16.  It was pretty funny. 
Morgan, snoozing on the sofa one of the Monday's I watched her.
Then we come to the Marinier's game that we went to with some friends.
We had great seats close to the field along the 3rd base line and got a kick out of the hot dog vendor with the hot dog hat!
