Spring Break is Over

Hi Friends!  Whew! 
What a great Spring Break we had!

Here's just a few of my highlights...

Easter cookie making with my daughter...
(We used this frosting recipe--click here!)

 


A 5 hour car trip to see my parents = a wedding scrapbook made for a friend!
(Yes, I love to scrapbook in the car!  Click here to see how I do it.)


Time spent with the family...


Kids playing with grandparents, cousins and lots of babies!


Easter service with my folks...


Easter desserts made by my sister-in-law...
(Cream puffs and Oreo balls!  Mmmmm!)


Easter egg hunt and even more cousin playtime...



A three day road trip into Montana and back= The Hunger Games book series read.
(Yes, I like to read in the car, too.)

Lots of wildlife spotting from the freeway, big sky,
meals out, date nights and a movie!


Back in Spokane, I slipped away to go shopping at my favorite store...




Can you believe that Hobby Lobby has 4th of July products out?
...maybe it's for Memorial Day, instead...right?

More visiting and playing with cousins and grandparents.
Another road trip back home= lots of overdue hemming and mending.
(Yep, I sew in the car.)


And we even squeezed in a quick visit up to Camano Island in the sun!


...for fort building, of course!


 Today we woke up to the sound of rain...
perfect weather to go back to school and do laundry!

  4. Wow, I'm tired just reading your blog. I wish I could be productive in the car but doing much of anything except looking straight forward makes me ill, even with an electric arm band to keep me from getting ill. Glad you are back.

  7. Scrapbooking in the car? Now there's an idea I never thought of! Although I always seem to be the driver so guess that wouldn't work too well;) Looks like you had a terrific break & HL is notorious for dragging out holiday decors way tooooo EARLY!

  8. You are always so productive in the car - I always try and drive since I get car sick so I'm ust kicking myself about all the "work time" I'm missing. Great family pic!

  9. Welcome home, Michelle! Your pictures look awesome!

    I am taking your cue and starting my first themed holiday bloggy party. Stars and Stripes will feature anything red, white and blue. Do you have any tips on how I can get the word out?

    Thanks and hope you'll link up too!
