We Fell Off the Face of the Earth

Wow. It really does feel like we fell off the face of the earth...but really, it was just spring break.

Actually, not just spring break, we also had a trip to Jamestown for the 4th grade field trip...THEN we drove to Florida for spring break...and we had the twins' birthday, helped Evan celebrate his birthday, went to Sea World, Aquatica, Kennedy Space Center, Cocoa Beach, and drove home...with Easter thrown in for good measure.

phew. I'm tired just typing that. Actually, I am totally hammered from vacation, and wish I could take know, without the kids this time. LOL!

But, we had such a good time. I took 2400 photos. Holy cow. Lot's of stuff to scrap!

Really, we had SUCH a good time that the Easter Bunny (who normally comes the Saturday before Easter) forgot to visit our kids THREE days in a row.

Eek. He's almost as bad as that forgetful Tooth Fairy.

But, he finally made an appearance today around noon while the kids were watching TV. Sneaky little thing.

I have tons of photos to share...about each of these things...and also posts to do for Emma and Joe who turned TEN during our vacation. I cannot believe how quickly time flies!

But the remainder of this post is dedicated to Miss Emma...who at long last GOT HER EARS PIERCED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

She was bouncing off the walls on the way to the mall...and bouncing in her chair right up until the second they did the first ear. I think it hurt her a ton, but no way was she turning back...she didn't even cry. She just said, "Quick, do the other ear."

I can't remember seeing her this happy about something...not even our vacation.

Happy Birthday kiddo.

ps. if you would like to see some of the photos Andrea took on our vacation (all 180 that she can go here).
