Spring Break

Spring break was a simple but fabulous one. All we had to do was drive two hours over to my parents' house for the week and it was as good a change of scenery as any plane ticket could buy. The weather was delightful, and spring was springing everywhere. 

The kids played outside endlessly and cooked up all sorts of games together. 

We went shopping and got some warm-weather clothes for Matthew. 

He can now ride the little bug scooter which we bought for C less than two years ago. Crazy! We also made a trip to the park on what ended up being a relatively chilly day. Still lovely though. 

Oh and Spencer wanted to say hi, remember him?

Spencer was our "extra" kitty we acquired by way of a long story, who ended up staying with my parents when we moved to Oregon. He's happy as a clam and now currently the only feline in residence as Salem, my folks' 17-year-old cat, crossed the Rainbow Bridge in late March. Sigh. 

What else? Oh yes, Mom and I took the kids furniture shopping, and they might tell you it was the highlight of the week. We all had lots of fun on that adventure. 

Amy took charge of the Easter egg dyeing project and she and C accomplished that with little help from me. I also spent some time during the week helping my dad with his garden. It really was a fantastic week capped off with Easter weekend - pictures from that next. Till then!
