A Snow storm and May Day, Not the Typical Combination

We have already had the wildest week weather-wise. On Saturday, we had decent (but a tad chilly) weather as we attended a birthday party in the morning and wedding that evening. I only have 1 picture and it's between the two events.
I think sometimes it gets too busy and I forget to take pictures.

On Sunday morning, we woke up to snow and were predicted to get 6-8 inches that day. Snow! It was basically May so we were quite surprised. We welcomed the extra quiet day though after the busyness of Saturday.
Payton had been disappointed she hadn't made a snowman all winter, so this gave her one more chance. She was so happy to have a snow friend! Imagine her shock when her new friend melted the very next day. The poor snowman didn't even make it 24 hours.

After the Sunday storm, Monday and Tuesday have been gorgeous. On Monday, we were outside in t-shirts and jeans, handing out May Day baskets and planting trees.
We hope you had a great May Day (May 1st). We took some special treats to the few neighbors we have. This morning we went on a play date and played outside for most of the time since the weather is so nice again. We are planning to spend the next couple of days around the house and I'm so excited to get some things done at home! I feel like we've been extra busy lately and I'm very ready for life to slow down, if possible.

Did you participate in May Day? We hope you have a great week!


  1. Did you end up getting all the 6-8 inches?!?!? My goodness. That's crazy! We had 3 inches of snow last week but after a day or two it was gone. It's been a weird spring, that's for sure, and I'm thankful to be outside with the kids more this week!

    Our neighbor dropped off May Day baskets at our house but I've never made our own before. Making baskets and planting trees sounds like fun :)

    1. Hi! We only got a few inches and almost all of it was gone the next day! It's amazing how unpredictable the weather is in the Midwest! As for May Day baskets, you guys should give those a shot. My kids loved delivering the few we made.
