We’re Back!

And what a lovely little break we had!

It was so nice to have a good visit with Shane’s family, eat in restaraunts (no cooking and no dishes!), play and read with the boys without having distractions of house and home, swim in the pool and soak in the Hot Tub and generally relax and go with the flow.

On Easter Sunday, the Easter Bunny paid us a visit (don’t know how he found our hotel room, but he dropped off a couple of baskets with fun and yummy treats!)

We didn’t have an Easter egg hunt since we were in the hotel, but the weather wouldn’t cooperate anyways. (I am so envious of folks who can have outdoor egg hunts in shorts and spring dresses!)
The boys got dressed in their finest and I of course wanted a great brothers-in-matching clothes picture. Yeah…not so much…

First Grayson was “helping” Sam stay still, then I jsut couldn’t get them to look at me at the same time. Oh well…

We had a great dinner (lunch) at Shane’s aunt’s house

and got to visit with Great Granny, Grandpa and other aunts, uncles and cousins.
As much as Shane and I enjoy visiting, swim time was always the highlight of each day for the boys! Grayson can stand up in the shallow end of the pool and Sam is fearless in the water. Both boys were leaping of the edge after a matter of minutes.
I was so pleased to have time to read my new book and catch up on podcasts for my Library of Memories class. (I am excited and reenergized to get back to my system to continue to categorize photos and make some new layouts. Stacy Julian is brilliant!)
Now it’s back to laundry, cooking, cleaning and organizing. I have some big tasks ahead of mein the next few weeks…renting out our Dalhousie house, hiring a nanny for August and starting to get ready for our June move. It’s a good thing I DID have a break!
