A Great Spring Break - Part One

We've had a wonderful visit with Ed's mother this week. Here are a few of my favorite memories.

In Atlanta we can't get slurpies. The boys really enjoyed their Mountain Dew flavored treats.

The whole family really enjoyed the hammock my mother in law had in her back yard. I even managed to steal a few moments to read and nap in the hammock myself.

The boys also had a great time at the beach.

It rained one day so we met an old friend of mine from high school at the bowling alley.

It's nice to spend time with the family without the demands of our daily life interfering. No work - no house chores - no cooking dinner. We've spent lots of time just enjoying each other's company and playing together as a family.

I don't have any pictures but we did take a family trip to a local water park in Tampa, Florida. This was the first big adventure we've had with all four family members. I felt like it was a big test and we succeeded. Ellis was a real trooper and even managed to ride 3 water slides. Owen was extremely brave and rode every ride that was open at the park including the super speed slide.

Sometimes, there are no complaints.


  1. Sounds like you had a blast. Glad you enjoyed your family time

  2. Pics are wonderful, glad you got some r & r. Been missing the boys a LOT.
