It was so great having my brother here, even if only for a day. Mary soaked up as much attention as she could get before the boys headed out to the coast to start their big cross country bike adventure. We got to send them off with a proper meal and a big hug.
They celebrate May Day every year at Chrysalis in the park nearby. This year we were blessed with a beautiful sunny day. The kids all danced around the Maypole and ate a picnic lunch. Afterwards Mary spent the afternoon playing at her friend Sienna's house. We Oregonians take FULL advantage when a sunny day comes our way. :)
We went to a "Mary Poppins" themed birthday party last weekend where face painting was the big activity. Mary was last in a line of 10 girls. The majority of the girls picked rainbows or butterflies.... After waiting for almost an hour this was Mary's request...."I'd like a magical red unicorn with sparkles please.". She's awesome.
