May 2004


The month started out with a surprise birthday party for Grandpa Jack.

We had a great time wishing him a Happy 85th!

We made him a book of pictures from everyone that came and wishes that they wished him.  (he is looking at the book in the lower right photograph)


Anne Marie tried to convince Liam and Elise that they could have a sleep over in the toy room, but it didn't work, after the movie, they went to find mom.


The next day we went to Grandma Jo & Grandpa Jack's house for a Mothers day brunch.  Starting with Angela in the red shirt, Grandpa Jack, Marie, Donna, Grandma Jo. Elizabeth, Leann.  Grandma Marilou is surrounded by Anne Marie in the pink shirt, Liam, Elise, and Taylor.


After breakfast, we hiked down to the creek and found some tadpoles and frogs.


A new baby this month, Michele and Ian had little Ethan Shaw on May 11th at 1:06 a.m. 9 lb 1 oz


Here are all three girls taking their horseback riding lessons.


In May we went to Marine World on Girl Scout Day.

We had some flashbacks to fun we had last summer at Euro Disney
Angela and Courtney took in a few roller coasters, on this one they are the first seat in the third car.


Here is Taylor jumping!!!  She finally made her goal!!

Anne Marie and Sugar are practicing well.


Anne Marie's class went on a field trip to the Met. Here is Anne Marie blowing a big bubble.

Here she is listening in the tube for me to talk.


Off to Dinkey Creek again for camping fun.  Here is Shane and his little ladies having a picnic.

We went on a little hike, Lucy followed us across the street because she wanted to hike too.

We went for a trail ride.  Left picture front to back, Angela, Paul, Anne Marie.  Right picture front to back, Angela, Taylor, Courtney.

We had so much fun on our trail ride, we went again the next day.   From the front is Courtney, Taylor, Angela, and Anne Marie.
