We had no big weddings or graduations this May, but we found ways to celebrate. Cinco de Mayo and the Kentucky Derby landed on the same day. Sometimes that requires a costume change.
Celebrating Houston's Art
In mid May I had one of those perfect days with lunch and a museum visit. Houston's Museum of Art had some fun surprises. What fun to witness a new bamboo exhibit being installed AND to catch my first glimpse of the new shiny Cloud Column!
It was a treat having Heidi home for Mother's Day. We had pool time, games and a lovely dinner out. We avoided the Sunday Brunch crowds and enjoyed some lox and bagels and home!
Don and I hit the Polish Festival one weekend and I danced at a Greek Festival a couple weeks later. One evening, I learned the Hula with a great group of women. And then there was the usual mix of international dining. I love Houston's diversity.
The Royal Wedding
Don and I cheated and taped Harry and Meghan's wedding on the 19th. At the last minute we grabbed the Royal Doulton china, some fake flowers off a shelf and we toasted some English muffins... and made our own event. The wedding ended up delighting us more than we ever expected!
Memorial Day Weekend
It was 100 degrees at Lake LBJ, over the holiday weekend. Don and I walked 2 miles to get to the annual BBQ picnic. We amused ourselves along the way, posing with odd mailboxes.
After the messy bbq feast, children ran towards the firetrucks and played in a sea of suds!
The day after Memorial Day we headed home and found 24 baby ducks in our own neighborhood lake. What a perfect ending to the month of May.
