Spring Break

And just like that Spring Break is over, and it's time to get back into our routine.  

For Spring Break, we took the kids down to visit Dan's parents in Palm Springs.  It was such a nice getaway. The weather stayed between 85 and 90 degrees everyday.  Perfect weather for the kids to swim and for me to lounge by the pool.  

We got up early Saturday morning and made it to the airport.  My girls didn't seem to mind having their picture taken, but Jesse wasn't having it.  Ha!

They made us a a great Steak and Lobster dinner that first night.  It was so fun to grill and eat outside in  the warm weather.  It is making me really excited for the nicer weather to get here.

The next morning I got up and got ready early and headed outside to enjoy my cup of coffee.   This is something that I could get used to doing every single day of my life.  So relaxing.  I'm sure I would never get anything done if I started my mornings off like this though.  Kids fighting… who cares.  Messy house… so what.  Warm, sunny mornings with a cup of coffee and the world instantly seems like a better place.  ;)

We went to church with Dan's parents again.  It is so different going to a large church after attending such a small church my whole life.  They have a coffee/juice bar where you can get something to drink before hand.  This is part of my crew getting a morning mocha before the service. Crazy!

Dan and his Dad went out golfing the one morning, so the rest of us went for a walk around the area and along one of the golf courses.  It is such a pretty area.

We were supposed to fly home Wednesday afternoon, but our plane was having difficulties and they needed to work on it.  Well in the mean time, we missed our connecting flight.  We decided that we'd at least try and make it as far as Seattle and try and get on an early flight the next morning. Long day and the kids were tired, but they did so good!

I am so glad we ended up in Seattle, because my Bestie and her family had just made it there for a mini family vacation.  We totally crashed their little family trip and butted in for dinner.  We both left MT and both ended up in the same area, and you can bet that we were meeting up.
Dan says I'm maxed out on my traveling quota for the year.  I'm not telling him, but I'm actually okay with that.  It's good to be home and I have lots of little projects I want to start working on, in and outside of the house.

Have a great Monday you guys!
