Spring Break 2009

Discovered a totally F-U-N photo editing program already existing on my computer!

Instead of spending tons of money on tickets for some kind of entertainment this week, PandaPop and I decided to invest in items and activities that would last. We spent time cleaning around the house and organizing, but when it came time to play we headed out to the park for the most amazing spring weather! We had a picnic and played around with PandaGirl and, of course, had a blast driving around in the Jeep with it's top down. LOVE THAT! I was able to get a lot done that I had hoped to and completely enjoyed wearing a different ball cap everyday from Monday until just a little bit ago! LOL!

We all three got new baseball gloves just for fun. I hadn't thrown a softball since....well, I really don't even know when. Maybe 4th grade? LOL! PandaPop and I had SO MUCH FUN just tossing the ball back and forth. Fun, but my arm was killing me!

PandaGirl will be starting soccer for the first time in a few weeks. I have the athletic talent of a sloth, but so far little miss is showing that she is a great little soccer player! She kicked two out of three goals at her Upward Soccer tryout and had great control of the ball! Who knew?! ; )

This pic cracks me up! PandaPop went to get all kinds of yard stuff so we could plant some flowers and beautify our yard. He drove up with the bag of soil nicely buckled up and I thought it was hilarious! PP has busted his tail getting our yard so pretty! It has been so amazing to be outside in the sunny, breezy, 72 degree spring weather.

PandaPop bought me this darling planter which PandaGirl helped me plant a red Gerber daisy in....I LOVE IT!!!!!! (To have perspective, the planter is about 15 inches tall from top to bottom and about 20 from the handle to the other side. VERY CUTE!)

More playing around with my awesome camera! I could spend HOURS playing with this thing!!!! Dangerous, I tell ya.

PandaGirl and I had fun making crazy rag flip-flops together. Great for her, because she is so cute in them. Great for me, because my tootsies are now cute around the house! ; )

Guess who got a new shirt? He was so pleased.

I haven't posted on The Fur in a very long time. Charlie went to live with another family back in the fall, but Hugo stayed with us. He is the most precious doggie. So sweet and VERY pretty!

Celebrated St. Patrick's Day with some home-made cinnamon/sugar shamrocks.

This was the best Spring Break I think I have ever had!! I appreciated the much needed break more than any other time in my life.

Thank you, Lord, for the FABULOUS weather, time with my family, and the restful, productive respite.


  1. Looks like a fabulous spring break filled with lots of quality family time. I love your teacup daisy planter and those flip flops are super cute. Best wishes transitioning back into school.

  2. Glad y'all had a wonderful spring break!

  3. Looks like you guys had a great time. I LOVE the teacup planter! The buckled up soil is hilarious. And, LOVE the flip flops!! The weather has been beautiful here too. We thoroughly enjoyed it this week!

    Did you see my fb status today? D.S. helped a momma cow deliver her calf. We found her on the ground with the calf half out. Neither one of them made it. But I tell you what, we are countrified!

  4. Sounds like a fun Spring Break!

  5. I saw some flip flops you might LOVE! They are similar to the ones you guys have on in the pic, but they are little small balloons (the tiny water balloon size) tied all around the foot straps just like the fabric in your pic.

  6. Sorry I hadn't been by- thought it was a little longer until you returned- I never know what day it is- LOL!
    Love your Pics! She is getting so big- she looks grown- Looks like you guys had great weather- during spring break!

  7. Looks like a fabulous spring break to the potting soil all buckled up for safety....HILARIOUS!!!!

    So what's the new camera? ;)
