Last weekend was Easter. The kids woke up to these awesome baskets:
Can you tell they were still pretty tired when they got up?
Then we went to Grandpee's farm to hunt eggs there. They had a blast running outside & getting some fresh air.
Then last Tuesday, Jim flew in from San Diego. He is now quite the tattoo freak & still seems to think he's a stud. Ha! At least he thinks so. :-) Here's a bit of his tats: Yeah - he's a super freak!
Now fast forward to today--> Dylan's birthday party at Skateport in Springfield. He had so much fun getting to skate around for 2 hrs. Plus he got tons of video games - his favorite thing. I think it pretty much wore everyone out - except Dylan. It's midnight & this kid (who by the way - skated the full 2 hrs) is still WIRED. If only we all had the energy Dylan has.
Well I'm finally going to post about our nice little drive last weekend. We decided rather than go to Springfield (the usual weekend getaway), that we'd just take a drive down to Arkansas. We all loaded up in the car & I made sure to take the camera! Here's just some of the photos I got:
Towards the start of the journey - down an old country road:
At an old rickety bridge (and yes, we actually drove over it):
On the winding road home:
Anyways, we all had a good time & it was really nice to get away from the normal routine for a little while. We just need to try to do it more often.
