Happy Spring and Easter!

It feels so good to be outside playing.  A place to put all of our energy in a positive way.  There have been some trips to the park already with a little cousin.

He may be twelve but he still loves to play and join in the fun.  Most of his fun outside involves a ball of some sorts either hitting the side of the house or aiming at a goal.

This little one may not know it but her Uncle has a special place in his heart for her. 
With Easter right around the corner I am so thankful for warmer weather and more chances to be outside.  We will celebrate a quite Easter this year with the six of us.  Mass in the morning and then a big brunch to follow.  I know an Easter egg hunt is in the works and hopefully a quite day with family. 

Wishing you all a very Happy Easter!

Sand & Sun

A trip to the Sand Dunes was just what this family needed.  No big planning just family, fun, and even a little resting for some. The water did not start running until the afternoon, but when it did the kids loved all that mud!

The tracks of my little lady.

I think Brianna was very tired this day.  She spent a good amount of time just resting and soaking up the sun. 

These two can be the best of buds. They are starting to spend more time playing together and this day was no exception. I love to watch their bond with each other.
Wishing you a beautiful Sunday.  We have snow in the forecast today after we wore shorts yesterday.  I am loving this spring weather and the blessing of moisture.

This post is a week late on celebrating Brian's birthday, but as you can see he is having a lot of fun at thirty eight.  Is it no wonder that the kids call him the fun parent!  We headed to the sand dunes last week and he had to take his turn!
Of course what is a birthday without a pie made my his oldest daughter and four kids to celebrate with!  Oh how they love their Daddy!

Girlfriends in lavender

A girlfriend is probably the only person in this world, who understands exactly what you are saying even though if you may not really be talking.

These photos are from last spring that never made it on the blog.  I love lavender and am anxious for my own this summer!!

Hoping to make it back one day to take more photos in this lavender field!

Favorite Friday Photo- Photos of a week

A look back at last week. It was all about scouting it seemed. The yearly derby race, and a slumber party for the Girl Scouts.

Sweet yummy lemons from a friend's tree!

The luck of this Irish boy.
A little family history.
Great friends for dinner.

An awesome project for middle school with cardboard boxes and all that goes into making them float .

We have been loving our spring break.  It is coming to a close but we have a couple more days of fun and adventures.  I have so many photos to catch up on and hopefully that will happen soon!

Favorite Friday Photo- Daughters

A daughter is the happy memories of the past, the joyful moments of the present, and the hope and promise of the future.  ~Author Unknown

I had photos of me and the boys and now needed to include the girls.  These girls of mine love hard, disagree often, and bring a lot of joy in my life.  I used to dream of tutus with a daughter, lots of fancy dresses, and tea parties.  I have learned a lot. They have their own style, prefer pants to dresses, and would rather wrestle with their brothers than drink tea.  This is what makes them who they are, and not only can I live with that, I love that they are finding their own style.

My hope for these girls is that they grow up to be strong women that chase after dreams.  Of course we do have the mother daughter battles. I remember my own with my Mom. One day when I am done making the rules and guiding them I hope they call me friend.
