Here's some advice we gathered for your trip:
Grand Teton National Park:
Jenny Lake is a great area of the park to spend the day. Take a boat ride across the scenic lake, with the Tetons in the background, and day hike on a plethora of trials around the lake. Also, don't miss the new tram at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. It's open in the summer and delivers hikers to the Teton Crest Trail at 10,450 feet in no time! I would take another day to hang around Jackson, or take in some world-class fishing nearby (though May is probably too early for fishing).
Yellowstone:
You should spend at least three days in Yellowstone, as it is an enormous park with so much to offer (the same could be said for the Tetons). Don't miss Old Faithful, where you should stop for a bit and view one of its famous eruptions. With over 1,100 miles of trails, you have quite the variety of hikes available. Try one of the day hikes near Old Faithful and one near Mammoth Springs, each in different parts of Yellowstone, so that you can catch some of the famous sites during your hike. Find out more specific information about hiking in Yellowstone on the National Park Service website (http://www.nps.gov/yell/planyourvisit/hiking.htm).
