Spring Break Review

Last week was spring break for the #1 son and the college student. We had plans but the weather was crappy all week so we scrapped em. Crappy weather: that would be at least 2 days of snow, yes snow in April, along with downpours of rain, hail one day, cold wind gusts and dark clouds blocking out all sunshine. Not only was it crappy weather, but it was unseasonally crappy. We are usually in the throws of spring by now, 60-70 degree days with sunshine. And since spring usually only lasts a couple weeks around here before the start of summer temps, we try to enjoy every moment of it. Sigh .....

So instead, we wasted, frittered, and generally did nothing worth reporting. Until friday. Friday we took the #1 son to see the new movie "How to Tame a Dragon" I hadn't thought much of the movie based on the lame previews, but it was a delightful movie. Great storyline, great characters, great animation and graphics. If you have a young one who wants to see it, I heartily recommend it.

Then we went out for dinner at Five Guys, Burgers and Fries---do you have one of these in your town? Wow! it has become my fav burger place. They only use fresh, not frozen potatoes for the fries and you can tell. Mmmmm! goodness. Then we went over to our church's Friday service. First time we had gone, and I'm so glad we did. They handed out a paper that had scriptures to read and led you thru a time of prayer and worship. The band played and you could sing along, or not. Loved that time praying about things on my heart and getting my heart right before the Lord.

Saturday was full of errands, swimming at the Y for #1 son and Michael, a nice dinner, oh and did I mention that we came out of the apt to a totally flat tire! Yikes!!! So we spent some time and moolah at the local Les Schwab Tire store. Gotta love those guys. They know what they are doing when it comes to tires.

And then yesterday was Easter. Ahhhh! Words can't express my enjoyment of celebrating the resurrection of Christ. His sacrifice, His love, His amazingness!

Now the boys are back in school and routines are being picked up again. Its a good thing!

Til next time ....

Five Guys is MY FAVORITE burger! And the fries aren't too shabby either. ;)

We saw that movie on Easter afternoon. It was so good!

Hope you have a happy day.

My son loved the movie! I thought it was just ok. I've never been to 5 guys. There's one near our church. But it's always packed on Sundays.

I felt the same way after church on Sunday. It was incredible. What a mighty God we serve!
