spring break '10

Wednesday, April 14, 2010

Oh, hey there!

I always underestimate the power of re-entry. However, I feel that we are finally back in the groove around here.
Spring Break this year was pretty close to the breaks in the past.
Except that the kids are a year older.
My parents got us a dog! (More on that later.)
The eggs were harder to find.
We got up early, went to the beach, and watched the space shuttle discovery take off.
A lot of friendship bracelets were made.
And the first stingray was caught (and released).
Back tomorrow to share a few little knits.
Have a great day!

  6. Every time I see your spring break pictures I ask myself "I wonder if Leslie's mom knows my mom?" as they both live in the same town. We didn't make it down there this spring break - instead my parents met is in Virginia. Looks like you had a lovely time...can't wait to see your knitting.
