Where did spring break go?

The end of spring break is practically here. It went by much too fast. After DEA was over, we drove home, washed laundry to pack again, and left to drive to TX to visit with my mom and my sister’s family for the week. After a week in TX we drove home in one very long day. The girls have been back at dance as usual this week even though we haven’t had school. I squeeze in a few doctor’s appointments  since we had more scheduling flexibility too, so I still felt like I was running around all of the time :P It’s back to the normal grind of school days and homework starting on Monday. I’ve posted a few pictures from our week in TX at facebook.

We had to find a patch of bluebonnets to take pictures in during our trip to TX over spring break. I guess we were a couple of weeks too early to catch the huge patches of wildflowers, but what we saw was still pretty!InTheBluebonnets_3-24-10

journaling: Grandmama gave Sarah this little piggy for her fourth birthday. Sarah wasn’t very excited about her at first, but that cute little face can’t help but grow on you and she has finally been fully adopted into Sarah’s large plush family. Sarah picked the name Olivia for her (after the books by Ian Falconer) and she has been the companion picked for many trips of late.

I didn’t get much scrapping done while we were in TX. This February summary was the only layout I got done during the time we were gone.

and going back just a bit to vacation in 2008 when we stopped at the Omaha Zoo and the octopus in their aquarium put on a show for us. Usually all you see of an octopus is them hiding in the rocks, but this one was actually swimming around the tank for us.

Sounds like a busy week! Wonderful layouts! We've actually never done the bluebonnet photo thing. Makes me feel like a bad Texan. LOL
