Back From Hiatus...and Spring Break

I didn't plan my extended break from blogging that last two months. In all of my 8 years of blogging, I have never taken a break that long. It came partially from writer's block, partially from busyness and partially from a desire to put my camera down and just enjoy the ride.

But I'm back. I missed it and maybe a few folks missed us. Anybody?...chirp chirp....Well certainly I at least know that the grandparents read this, so that's reason enough.

While on Spring Break, I dusted off my camera so we could have lots of good pics to come back with.

We didn't leave town for Spring Break because we're saving our pennies for our first trip to Disney this summer. But the kids and I had lots of fun around town...playing outside, going to the movies, visiting the Children's Museum, the Columbus Commons and Hayden Elementary. Lots of time for fun and also lots of time for rest, which is what I consider to be the perfect cocktail for a happy summer as well.

We spent 6.5 hours at the Children's Museum. Did you know that ours is the largest in the country? We used to go there all the time before the kids started school and now they miss it. It's one of their favorite places.
A lot of my pictures were blurry and I just figured out this morning that it's because my camera was still on the snow setting. See...I told you I had put it down for a bit. 

There was rain, sunshine, AND green things popping out of the ground. After the insane winter we've had, we all say thank you Lord! Can the kids play out in the rain and mud in their pajamas? You bet they can. 

Much TV was watched as well.
This is Waffle. He has been with us 6 weeks and due to my abscence, never properly introduced to the blog readers. I promise to rectify that soon! 

Tessa discovered a new favorite breakfast. 

We met the Swangers not once but twice! James is almost a year old. 

We found out Waffle is a great do to take on outings like the park. Rosie had to stay home because, well...she would spaz out. 

And we ate junk food. Lots of it.
