The May Day Report

What a fun and busy day!

May Day turned out to be a lovely warm and sunny day – just the way the first day of May should be!

Maddy and I took an easier route this year and ordered pre-packaged bags of popcorn with pastel caramel corn thrown in for good measure. Lucky for me (or not), we have a few leftovers - yum!!! :) Maddy also received some May Day baskets – there are some seriously creative crafty Mums out there!

Anyhoo, Maddy and I quickly ran around to our neighbors and dropped off her May Day offerings. One little boy almost caught her, but she managed to get away without being tagged by him! I doubt that he knew he was supposed to give her a kiss – good thing – as she would not have appreciated that either! It was a very fun day!

May Day was also our neighborhood garage sale. Unfortunately, I forgot about that and didn’t get anything ready. Next year, my neighbor and I are determined to put our treasures out and get rid of some junk! But really, some people seem to have forgotten that garage sale prices are supposed to be low – isn’t that the idea? Oh well, after the sale the next day, I spied some good stuff left out for the trash man . . . or passers-by (like moi) – more on that later!

I love May Day! I love the popcorn bags, what a great idea. Make we want to head to Colby Ridge!

We weren't home this weekend so we didn't do baskets for the kids but I made some fun ones for my friends.

Have a great week!

Maddy looks like she had a great time! Popcorn for May Day is a big thing in our neighborhood. This year my kids did a juice pouch, smarties candies and sour gummy lifesavers in their hand-outs. They love to ring and run!
