I've had several posts drafted up for various things have have been going on in May, but seeing as it'll be June by the end of the week, I thought a bulleted post would be the best way to cover some big events that have happened.

Linnea's birthday was particularly special seeing as it was her first! The last year has been so much fun mainly because we've gotten the chance to watch this little one grow & learn.

*May was also the month of our much anticipated family vacation! Sam's family went in together & a condo in Sunriver for the weekend. It was something we've all talked about doing, but was made possible thanks to a killer deal from Sharing Spree. We walked & biked the trails. Explored the touristy town.

I'm already crossing my fingers we can return again next year!
