Gone fishin'

We took a day trip out to Lake Morena for the afternoon. It's only about 45 minutes away and in a beautiful area so it was a pretty drive. The guys staked out a lonely section of lake and spent the day baiting their hooks, casting out their lines and checking occasionally for a bite. They never did get one but they did catch a lot of fun memories!

Looking for a sweet and lightweight sundress for the summertime? This one is comfortable, with an elasticized back bodice and adjustable tie-straps and the fabric is darling. Click on the EBAY link on the left to see the auction.

Spring is busting out all over

A few weeks ago, we took the kids to the city's Easter Egg Hunt, or as we nicknamed it the "See and Grab". There was no hunt about it. The plastic eggs were thrown out on the dirt and at the airhorn blast, the kids just ran out and grabbed every egg they could!

It was a chilly day and just as we decided it was time to leave, the sprinkles started and we walked the looong hike back to the car in drizzle.

My oldest hung out on the playground and went on a few of the big-kid carnival rides.

We went back home and the kids colored eggs. My little guy is asking in this picture a very typical question for him, "Can I drink this?" ICK!

Take a hike

It was a beautiful bright day on Saturday, so we hit the trail about 5 minutes from our house for a brief hike. We'd walked about 2 hours on these trails a few weeks ago but this time we were out for less than an hour as seasonal allergies were in full swing and making us feel a bit loopy!

I was surprised to see that there was still quite a bit of water flowing from the river in this section. We crossed a branch that was laid across (The boys walked across with ease while I, of course, slipped and got a shoe full of water!)

Last time we walked there were thousands of fuzzy black caterpillars squiggling their way down the trail. This time we saw many more butterflies! The flowers were growing all around, from bright yellow daisies to tiny purple flowers spread across the ground like a carpet.

Random Blogging

I've had the hardest time trying to collect up anything good to write. Not that anyone reads this blog anyway, but I do enjoy the writing practice! Random thoughts...My bangs are getting a bit long and could use a trim. My son's t-ball practices are way too long and it doesn't help that the coach gets there late. I'm looking forward to spring break since he doesn't have any games or practices for a week and a half. I'm so glad that my dad's health is holding up; you still can't even tell that he's sick. I want to take a day off work and go to Disneyland. I wish the dry skin on the bottom of my feet would go away, scraping it and lotioning doesn't seem to be working yet. The nightly walks with my neighbor are doing me good. I've lost over 16 lbs and I don't even think about food half as much as I used to (I did have a doughnut before lunch today though. Guess I have to treat myself sometimes?). My new lens should be arriving in the mail today so I'm looking forward to taking some fresh photos!

Guess that about does it for a few days. I'll think of something better to write about soon :)
