...and everyone else who is sick of looking at my Derby hat. Without further ado, I'm getting this pathetic blog back on track.
Let's see....it's been a month since my last post. I'm not sure how April went by so fast, but I couldn't be happier about the arrival of spring. It's getting very green here, thanks to the freakishly warm weather in April (three days over 90 degrees!) You can't let a hot day in April go by without getting out the mammoth water slide, pictured below. OK, actually, DAMON can't let a hot day in April pass without getting the water slide out. If it were up to me, I'd pack this thing up and take it straight down to Kara and Ben's house.
The neighborhood kids and a few others...
I was also busy getting ready for my friend Lorin's wedding in Asheville, NC. Damon and I escaped sans kids for two days to attend...it was truly one of the most beautiful weddings I've ever been to, and for that matter, could ever imagine. Congrats to Lorin & Mark...a perfect couple! Here are a few pics from the weekend.

We also rushed home to celebrate Sophie's 5th birthday (and watch the Derby, of course)! The girls wore their fancy hats and decorated horseshoes (thanks, Newi)!
