{Spring Break}

hi there...boy living life sure can get in the way of blogging sometimes huh?:)
well we survived daddy's 5 day absence and headed right into spring break.
let me backtrack a bit to some wonderful moments i want to celebrate and remember.

janey was part of a math team at school.

last thursday they had their competition.
we are so proud of you sweetie.

riley's fourth grade show was last thursday as well.

she was the recorder leader for her class and took her job very seriously.
she didn't miss a beat and performed like a star.
we are so proud of you too sweetie.

i love this photo of janey filming riley on her ipod and aubrey's face when she finally found her in the crowd.
be still my heart...

we are having a pretty laid back spring break this year.
a lot of our neighborhood friends went out of town and although the girls were sad...i think it helped to make the week a little more about each other.
i like that and i think in a way, they do too.

our weather was picture perfect which made for hours of this,

and this,

and this.

we ventured out to a new park when dave was away and fell in love.
we've been back 4 times already.
the sunsets here are amazing.

we are looking forward to our last few days of spring break and enjoying every minute of it.
have a happy day,
{thankful for}

  14. Can't even believe you are in swimsuits... some days I have to wonder what we are thinking living where we do. We are having an Easter break here and will be enjoying a little Hawaii time. I think its the only way we survive living where we do.
