Taking a week off was just what the doctor ordered. Well, really, replace doctor with husband!
We got much accomplished. And I'm raring to go this Monday morning. To keep up on all my accomplishments.
Want a round-up from last week? Well....your getting one whether you answered yes or no! And there is a pretty good announcement at the end of all the pictures!!
Worked hard cleaning up the backyard with the kids. Now if I could just figure out how to keep all the droppings from this climbing rose bush off all our furniture. Sadly, I think that beautiful green is coming down and will be replaced with a beef-ier trellis.
We headed to Santa Cruz for a little Spring Break Getaway. The kids had worked hard during the week and we thought it would be a nice little reward. Not that a reward was needed for working hard, but it was Spring Break! The sun shone brightly on us and we enjoyed beautiful weather. We rode the Giant Dipper twice. The first time Dave video taped Blake for his first ride. It is hilarious. He was scared to death. The second time we all rode just to enjoy the ride!
We were so glad we DIDN'T stay at this hotel! Read the sign carefully and you'll know why.
We spent Saturday afternoon at the Mystery Spot. It is a 150 foot circumference that has unexplainable wierd gravational pulls. You can lean at crazy angles with no support. It can also make you feel pretty dizzy. It was nice to play inside the circle but equally nice to walk OUT of the circle!
Last week off was good for my soul. And, my family's too! I'm back this week ready to have fun. Tomorrow I will be posting two posts. TWO!
The first will be our Dear Dave + April where we answer a few readers' questions. And....the second post..... It will be the mother of all GIVEAWAYS here on this blog!! I'm teaming up with The Nester tomorrow for her Giveaway Days. I'm so excited. Come back here tomorrow to see what I'm giving away and enter to win! It feels so good to be back. :)
