It was another month of travelling for work - I got to see many parts of BC - Saltspring, Cranbrook, Sooke and Kamloops!
We visited the tall ships festival at Garry Point to see the Kaiwa Maru. It was fun to see so many Japanese sailors walking about Steveston.
Things for Colin's grade 12 graduation started to ramp up in May - a grad boat cruise, fundraisers for the Dry Grad and the crazy spy game - we had water guns stationed at all doors of our house, in his car, etc.
To honour my mom this month, I filled our foyer with pink flowers on her birthday and planted a lily of the valley on Mothers Day. My mom was always particularly proud of her lily of the valley plant and lilac - really the only two plants she tended to in our garden, the rest my dad took care of. I know they both has special meaning to her, and I am glad to be able to have a springtime reminder of her in our garden now.
A little mothers day celebration with my boys between work shifts - my favourite coconut cake and tea on the deck. Feeling much love and appreciation.
The long weekend in May brought great weather and with the boys working all weekend, a chance for Neil and I to get out and about and have our own adventures.
My dad was honoured at Richmond' Pioneer Luncheon, a special Canada 150 event. He served for many many years as an Alderman for Richmond.
Adam started his new normal of work, time with friends, planning his travels and projects. His latest project is building a digital alarm clock for himself. Colin played many hot gruelling ultimate games in the provincials out in Surrey.
And in the garden the hanging baskets and herbs are thriving.
Phew. May was full.
