We spent the past week visiting my grandparents in Florida.

Good times!

We spent our days at the pool, watching dolphins & manatee on the sea wall, biking, playing tennis,eating way too much, and catching up on some sleep! We finished books, dominated in Sequence, watched M.A.S.H reruns with Gram & Gramps and devoured multiple key lime pies, brownie sundaes & peanut M&M's!

A perfect vacation, indeed!

going green.

Spring is in the air, which means the unwelcomed sight of pollen has once again covered...well, everything! It looks as if God clapped two chalk board erasers over North Carolina, leaving us snot filled and sneezing. [gross, I know...]

We have been blessed by visitors! On Friday Val & Alan Musch arrived and spent the weekend with us before continuing on their journey to Florida. The weather was perfect and we spent our days outside. We also made two runs to Sonic, for happy hour, of course!. We had a picnic lunch on Sunday and Val & I took naps outside while the guys did some hiking/geo-caching. We caught a few rays and endured our first sun tan/burn of the season. It was much needed and warmly welcomed!

Val & Alan left us early Monday morning and off to work we went. Life is back to normal, with a much anticipated trip to Florida in two weeks. Jim's off today for Good Friday, and back to work I went after a three day stretch off.

Life has felt like a whirlwind lately and it's keeping us on our toes!
May your Easter weekend be richly blessed.
