Simple Pleasures



Spring Break was only last week, but it feels like ages ago already. We spent the week enjoying things close to home. We wandered the primitive walkways of a few state parks in our area, spied on baby alligators darting through marshy edges of lakes, watched raccoons climb the canopies, and visited "The Senator". A box of sidewalk chalk called up kids from all over the neighborhood.


A morning of gun safety led to target practice with the BB gun. We tuned up the bikes and rode everywhere including a 12 mile trek. Everyone completed at least one novel and ended the week with sun kissed faces from several trips to the pool where they learned that diving off Dad's shoulders is much more fun than diving off the side of the pool.

What an exciting spring break! The kids look very cool in the park, diving off the dad's shoulders and with the BB gun! And I wish I could see baby alligators as well :)
