Merry Month of May

by megnewhall

Well, it’s certainly been a while since I posted on this blog! The days have flown by.

What have we been up to?

We celebrated Matthew’s birthday early in the month. He requested a Rhubarb Snacking Cake which I highly recommend, and Walter helped him blow out the candles.

We traveled up to Oregon and Washington to see family. Above, Walter sleeps on the plane (thank God!).

My boys at the Newhall house. Walter fell deeply in love with Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt “Nanet” Janet, Uncle Chris, Aunt Kari, and Uncle Patrick.

Here, my lovely sister-in-law takes Walter to gather eggs in the henhouse.

He was a little nervous about the chickens.

These adorable boots were a gift from Grandma Cindy.

My handsome husband and I were able to go on several dates, a luxury for us, as finding a local babysitter proves to be more of a challenge than I anticipated!

Walter loved riding on Grandpa’s tractor.

In Oregon, we took Walter to several parks.

Walt loved Uncle Joe and followed him everywhere.

A dear friend threw a lovely baby shower for Baby 2 and me.

We spent several mornings and evenings with our dear friend, “Uncle Tom”.

Now we are back at home, and just in time to harvest peas and beans. Walter is wearing Papa’s t-shirt in this picture, because I didn’t want him outside in the all-together…

We had a lovely trip–thank you so much to our dear families for hosting us and loving us as much as you do. We miss you all already. I’m sorry I didn’t take more pictures, but I know that’s because I was enjoying our visit too much to think about my camera.

Love,

Margaret
