When I Wish Upon a Vacation Extension

Why can't we have sun days in March? Or why not a day to celebrate the Spring equinox? Instead I am left to rue the start of classes and clinic tomorrow....yuck. After church and home teaching, Greg and I went outside to enjoy the nice weather. Mostly it involved running after Greg in his new "fast shoes" that blink.

Everyone Needs a Little Vacation

Day 3 of vacation and I am loving every minute of being home. True, my allergies have gotten an early kickstart, but I didn't realize how much I missed being home. This morning I took Greg to the pool and after a little bit of cajoling, Greg allowed me to zip him around on his kick board. Afterwards we headed to Walmart and as a treat Greg got a bunch of new figurines from the movie Cars.

In the afternoon Amber and I took the boys to the park where we attempted to fly kites. Greg loved it and Brighton had fun being the star of the playground. Nothing says, "My life rocks!" like laying in your  stroller as people ogle over you. The series of pictures below are from are "wickedly" awesome family time. 

As a funny side note...last fall I had a giggle over how many people from eastern Kentucky call a "hollow" a "hollor". Yet when we were returning from the park Amber was telling me about how Greg tends to "bellor" rather than "bellow" when he talks excitedly. We laughed for quite some time about this and after referring to our trusty old Webster's dictionary we realized that "bellor" is not a word but just a matter of accent. Six and half years into our marriage and I still have my "begs" rather than "bags" and Amber apparently has her "bellor" rather than "bellow" :)

While Big Boys Play, the Little Ones Sleep

Spring has brought such nice weather and after a wonderful yet busy Sunday we let Greg pound around outside while Brighton slept. What a great day!

Much Needed Dad Time

Spring has finally arrived in Kentucky with lots of rain, moderate temperatures and budding trees and flowers. Yet, since Christmas Dad aka "Noholio" has been MIA with late nights on campus, weekends working in the lab, and lots of other stuff. 

However, to start Noel's spring break, last night we spent a wonderful evening in Louisville eating at the Cheesecake Factory, attending Les Miserables (w/ actual broadway cast) at the Kentucky Performing Arts Center and feeling like an actual couple w/ a weekend to enjoy each other's company.

This afternoon Noel played w/ Greg...oh how this young boy misses his dad. Here is a picture of Greg (Noel Jr.) at the park w/ Noel. Someday we will be done w/ school!

I Was Feeling Kinda Crafty

I love having a wreath on my door. And since winter is hopefully over, I have been meaning to switch out my winter wreath for a spring one. I think it turned out pretty cute.
