Some Spring Time Stuff

It's been too long since I blogged...and this is a super busy season for me...but if April ends and I haven't blogged again it may well never happen...and that would be bad. So here goes...

During spring break we had such beautiful weather almost the entire week! One evening we walked to Edaleen (about a 20 minute walk) for ice cream. I figure the walk cancels out the ice cream and the waffle cone both. It was a beautiful night and even though we were missing Bethany (she was with friends or babysitting, probably), it was a great partial family outing. Sarah & Becca & Elise walked hand in hand almost the entire way home and talked and laughed. I loved it.

One afternoon I took Elise to a gymnastics camp in Bellingham. She had been to this location once before when she was probably 3 or 4, so it was fun for her to go again when she was a lot bigger and stronger. She climbed that rope all the way to the top!

If you're my friend on Facebook, you know that Ed took some time off during spring break and we dug out sod and laid down a concrete stone path on both sides of the house. We LOVE how it turned out and we actually had fun doing it, and I don't think Ed was expecting that!

Our good friend is building us some patio furniture out of pallets! This is the couch! We water sealed it and I'm making a cushion for it. One chair has also since arrived and we have one more coming. Love them!

A week after spring break, we added dirt in and around the stones to extend the flower beds and fill in the spaces. I'm hoping to grow some walkable ground cover to create a cottage path look.

I might blog about Sarah's track season yet...though if you're my friend on Facebook, you already know how that's going, too. :) :) :)
