"where the boat leaves from..."

Our family/friends the Lovings have a wonderful pontoon boat and lake house in Taveres. We had lunch at Al's Landing (food is so yummy and atmosphere is fun-open to the water, live music, my style of mismatched furniture...) and took the boat out on the lake and cruised down the canal. We saw a lot of birds, a gator and a bunny! (okay so the bunny was a lawn ornament-prob wouldn't have a long and prosperous life next to the rivers) But we also saw a cotton mouth snake and a gnome! (okay so the gnome was a lawn ornament too...)
dad...i love you and i will smile for you and coo and look cute but
 why, in the name of Pete, is this big blue thing around my neck?!?!
curly Sue =)
 I'm not telling you what was said right before this one was taken...=)
i should have been a mermaid.

Wishing you can get away to a body of water soon, too! Even if it's just your bathtub =)

c'mon over for Easter at our house

 "See, I have not forgotten you! I have engraved you on the palms of my hands..." Isaiah 49:16

Isaac, Alaina and I had Good Friday off, so we decided to (among other things) dye eggs and make choc covered pretzel bird nests and crosses. We first colored the hard boiled eggs with crayons then dunked them in our choice dye.
We attended our church with Matt's parents and ate at Sonny's afterward. We rented a redbox (not unusual) where I convinced Matt to get 'War Horse'. Directed by Spielberg. I thought it would be good!  Lets just say he didn't make it halfway through...
I left a trail of eggs from Isaac's room out to the family room and hung baskets on their doorknobs. Determined to be WOB (worlds best mommy), I was so excited to see what he thought about it when he woke up...Instead i had to SHOW him b/c he was so oblivious as he staggered into our room asking, "Can you put on a movie for me momma?"
I practically shouted, "Honey, did you like the easter eggs?!"
"What eggs?"

 In the afternoon, we had family over to our home for lunch and an egg hunt!
