Photo Overload

A perfect Easter Day.  The weather was not raining, which is all it has done since we returned from Florida.  It was a partly sunny day that was almost 60 degrees.  It has been a very cold, wet, grey Spring.  It reminds me of the summer two years ago that we only swam 6 times total because it was so cold and rainy.  We are praying that doesn't happen again.

The trees are just starting to show signs of Spring.

Look at my big girl, she is getting so old.  Just the other day we went to buy her shoes for Easter and I had to by a 10 womens!  Her foot is officially bigger than mine!

Bella and her headbands.  She is a true modern day punky brewster.  A true tomboy with a twist, she loves to dress up.

Gigi,  and her "mile", she hasn't master the "s" sound yet.  If she smiles then she closes her eyes!

After church we went to my parents for a super yummy ham lunch.  The girls decided they were going to raid the basement closet and play dress up.

Gabby went first.  She is wearing my senior prom dress.  The funniest part of this is that I wore that dress on my second date with the man in Orange.  I'm not sure what surprised me more, the fact that Jared recognized the dress or that it fit Gabby!

Bella went next.  She found a peach sherbet dress that I wore as a flower girl.  It fit her perfectly.  I am in shock that my mom kept that dress all these years, and that it was in perfect condition!

After our lunch, we headed back home for a Easter Egg Hunt.

Yes, a perfect Easter Day.

Jared's parents then came over for round #2.  They hide a whole new set of eggs.  So hunt number two produced quite a lot of cash and chocolate.

Notice the tulips in the background.  Each girl got a color, we are going to plant them after mothers day and hope they reappear next year.

Yellow, Red and Bright Pink tulips and one Easter Lily, hopefully the garden will be very colorful next spring.

Our perfect day ended in the backyard with a friendly game of freeze tag with all the neighbor kids.

He has risen, be joyful and glad in it!

"Hoppy" Easter friends! ......

Miss you SW FL....

Highlights from Spring Break ...

A day of boating on the Gulf of Mexico!

We saw a pirate ship.  
And lots of bridges and sailboats.

I didn't take pictures on the beach, there was no way I was going to chance my boyfriend(iphone4) to get all sandy.

One tired 3 year old...after a full day of playing on the beach.  She couldn't stay awake for the boat ride home.

A day of reading.  D2, D1 and Grandma.  D1 read for almost a full hour, so into her book, she wanted to finish it.  D2 was tired of the "baby" books I packed for her, so we bought her a chapter book the night before.  She was so excited to read like the big people.

D3 showing off her tan while playing in the condo.

We have been home for 5 days and the temp has not broke 55 degrees!  As a matter of fact yesterday, it snowed in the morning.  It didn't stick, but non the less, it fell from the cold, blueless sky.  Today the high is going to be 43!  Wow, so tired of this.

Saw this on facebook last night before I went to bed, made me laugh!

Of course I put away all the winter stuff on Sunday.  When it was 50.  I thought that maybe if I packed it away for the summer, the warmer weather would surface, I guess that was wishful thinking. ...

IT's ....

Snowing yet again!

Will this winter ever end?

Ok, I fess up, it not snowing, it is actually just a beautiful spring day. 45 degrees bright blue sky and sunny.

It is April Fools Day, did I fool you?

Today I am spending the day kid free. Two are at school and the peanut is off with her grampie for an afternoon of fun before vacation. I am packing, finishing laundry, cleaning and going for a walk.

With sun and blue skies like today, I feel like a walk. I the blue skies are a nice reminder of the weather/season we are about to be entering. I feel like today is the perfect day to take a nice 40 minute stroll to clear the brain. Today will be a perfect day to have a little chat with God. To thank him for all the blessing in my life that I often seem to over look. Today I will thank him for answering many of my recent prayer about friends and family.

Life is a gift, are you using your gift wisely?
