Spring camping for the Boy Scouts. It started out as a beautiful day and evening. The boys woke to....

If you don't like the weather in Colorado, wait 10 minutes.

Easter Sunday started with silly egg hunt for Rob... one was left in his room with a note.... 'One is here, six are left, how long will it take you to find the rest?' Easter Bunny is getting a little wiser these years and hiding the treats. Took Rob over 30 minutes to find all six.

After Church service, we then went to Stan and Joey Pereira's for dinner. There we met up with Mike, Gainey, Morgan, Steve, Bryce, Nancy, Dave, Adam and Andy.

Joey sent the boys on a scavanger hunt. Reading each note that lead to the next, not giving any a rest. Till at last they circled around and the treasure they finally found !

After the hunt and a huge wonderful meal, the kids got to paint candy eggs Morgen and her Mom made.

Late this winter a Mama and Daddy fox moved in under our shed in the backyard. They only had 1 kit though. We named him Junior.

What an awesome opportunity to watch nature unfold up close and personal. We watched as Mama nursed Junior and eventually taught him to hunt on his own.

The pictures are somewhat fuzzy has I took them thru the window and screen. I did not want to go outside and disturb them. We let Junior grow big and strong till he could hunt on his own. Then, sad to say, we boarded up the holes under the shed. It's time for Junior and his family to move on. On a happy note, we see them often though (and our squirrel population is certainly down).

Spring Break 2011 Florida

What started out as a splendid vacation... soon turned into a bit of a disaster.

Ever the boy, our first night in Florida, Rob is playing with this dinner. How many times have I told that child to not play with his food !?

The second day we met up with family for a great meal. I know I was just getting sick when we had lunch with everyone. I must have been more out of it than I realized as I didn't take one picture of any family members. I am so sorry. HOWEVER, just today in the mail, my hero, Rasma, sent us a card with pictures! I will scan those in next week and upload. Thank you Ras!

At the lunch were (in no order): Bob, Paula, Ron, Ras, Ronnie, Kara, Steve, Britton, Kari, Avia, Tristan. So good to see everyone !

We stayed one day at Bob and Paula's... just long enough for me to get them sick and on to Orlando where I spent much of the time sleeping/resting.

We went to the Animal Kingdom Park and stayed long enough for Rob and I to go on 1 ride... At Epcot... it rained all day. Not sure that was good for my cold. Then Mike and Rob both got sick. We got to see a lot of our hotel room, that's for sure.

This fun loving dragon is made of Lego's ! Can you imagine the effort that took???

Here we are shopping at some Disney stores with a lego dragon behind us and next is Mike and Rob in front of the Haunted Mansion at the Magic Kingdom.
