High School Reunion

We spent the weekend driving out to Chatham, VA for Alumni Weekend at Hargrave Military Academy (Where Alex spent 3 of his high school years.)  They had some bouncy castles for the kids, but mostly we were there to walk down memory lane with Alex.  He showed us his old dorm rooms, and how things have changed from when he attended there.  The school grounds were gorgeous.  

We attended his old ward on Sunday, and one member actually remembered him.  We also just had a ton of fun staying in a hotel room with an indoor pool.  (Probably the girls favorite part of the trip.)  It was a really nice weekend.

Back in the Saddle Again

Nothing like a good computer wipe and the scattering of backup files to the four winds to knock me out of the blogging habit.  This week, I FINALLY got all my files back in one location, decluttered, and multiple backups deleted.  I'm ready to get back on the wagon.  (it's only been 6 months....again.  I wasn't even caught up again from the last time I fell off the wagon.)  So let's start with today...

Happy Easter Everyone!!!!

(If you're happy and you know it, open your mouth!)

To Hell (Michigan) and Back.

My brother's family decided to visit Hell, Michigan, for spring break this year; which meant staying a few days at my sister's home in Detroit.  We decided to drive out there for the week to go along for the ride, and to have a mini-reunion.  The drive was long, and I had to do it alone (Alex couldn't leave class for a week) and sick on the way back, but it was a great trip and it was soooo good to see my brother and sister and their families!

Actually, it was a pretty cold day in Hell.  Apparently it freezes over quite frequently, contrary to popular belief.

Look, they got Tombstone on this sign.  That's nearly home for us!

I don't know how my kids got the phone camera on double picture inset mode, but the shot of Baby X was too cute, even with the mom and sister giggling in the inset.  (He's crawling like a champ now!  Go Baby!!)

Most of the week was spent hanging out at home, jumping on the trampoline (and coloring on it as well), watching Frozen over and over, a day trip to the GM tower building, sharing a flu bug, and just having a great time.  Thanks for hosting Jared and Maryle!!!
