Birthday Lunch

The perfect end to a lovely birthday lunch

The calendar page turned over to a new year for me and my husband took me out for a consolation ~ I mean celebration ~ lunch. :-) We ended the meal with espresso and chocolate truffles, which was the perfect end to a wonderful lunch date!

March 2012

Shamrock shake ~ a March tradition.

Every March Grant starts talking about wanting a Shamrock Shake from McDonald's.  Usually, on our way to our annual staff retreat, we stop and get him one.  Well, not just him... Kate and I get one, too! :-)  (For some reason I cannot fathom, my husband does not like the combination of ice cream and mint!)  Anyway, darn those shamrock shakes are SO good!  I confess I have had 2 this year, since I recently took Grant to the mall to get him a few early birthday gifts, and we just had to enjoy another one of those shakes.  It is a good thing they only have them during the month of March!  (I generally stay away from McDonald's for the other 11 months of the year!)

Sunny day

We have had the most gloriously sunny and warm March that I can remember for as long as we've lived in this state!   Kate likes to jump on the trampoline at her piano teacher's house before her lesson starts, but usually it is way too cold to do that at this time of year.  Here she is last week after a good jumping session! :-)

Guess where we went...?

Yes, we finally took the kids to Disney World! :-)  

Honey I Shrunk the Kids...
We hadn't taken a vacation for the past six years, so it was really wonderful to get away as a family and just have fun!
