Anyway, I love that Loudoun County always has Spring Break the week just prior to Easter. It makes sense with all of the Holy Week activities and so many people end up going away to visit family.
This year, Pat and Aidan went to a friends house a few hours south of us for a fishing and hunting trip. By all accounts, the boys had a blast. They did a lot of fishing, since the weather was nice. . .
They also made it over to the most favorite man store in my house: Bass Pro Shop! Can't you hear Tim Allen grunting and hooting???
Anyhoo. . .They boys were gone from Sunday until Wednesday evening. While they were gone, I enjoyed this sight:
And I cleaned our several cabinets in the kitchen and all of them in the Laundry Room, where I found these. . .
And why do we have so many vases???? And so many coffee mugs??? And why were we keeping so much stuff??? Our trash was pretty full last week.
My Kitchen is almost ready now for the new granite countertops. They will be installed on May 3rd. Can't wait!
On Thursday of last week, the boys got up and decided to go to a friends closer to home to do a little fishing and hunting. Fishing carried the day, though!
The other play date was at our house with one of Aidan's school friends. Evan is a cutie and I really like his parents. They are also close, just the next street over. However, you have to go out onto the main road in order to get to their street. So, no just running over there! Pat and I did wonder, though, how long it would take before Aidan is asking to ride his bike over there. : /
Friday evening, we dyed our own Easter Eggs. This is always a fun time for us.
And I made this awesome center piece for the table!!
Easter was beautiful, if a bit cool. Aidan was bored waiting for everyone to come over so we went for a walk/bike ride
The week, and especially Easter, left me feeling happy and hopeful that we're truly on to Spring and a new life. It was a nice week off from all the hecticness. . .that is, we were off from everything except hockey! Of course. . .
Have a great rest of the week!
