menu plan monday ~ may 18, 2009

Yesterday we hosted our church’s annual spring picnic. We look forward to this each spring. We have the best church family. Lots of fun, lots of love, lots of good food!

The boys cranked homemade ice cream in a five-gallon freezer.

    The weather was perfect for your picnic!

    Looks like May is a busy month for you as well! You share a birthday with my sister-in-law, and your son/father share a birthday with my mother-in-law!

    Tons of May babies!
