This week has been Marky and Maddie's spring break; Meredith will have hers next week. We have had such a beautiful week together. The weather has been so terrific. I love the anticipation of all of my spring bulbs coming up out of hibernation. So far, the crocus have said hello, and there are a few brave daffodils that have bloomed. I know that a spring snow is just around the corner but watching these happy plants come up gives me hope that the warm weather is really coming. Earlier in the week, we drove down to Denver to see my grandparents, the kids' great-grandparents. We took my mom with us, so there were 4 generations visiting together. That's a pretty cool thing. I don't get down to see my grandparents as often as I would like to, but it was nice to visit with them. Both of my grandparents are very musical and so I thought they would enjoy hearing Marky and Maddie play the piano for them. I'm sure there are pictures of me playing on this exact piano! Memories! While we were there, a car accident occurred directly in front of the house. Once we got over the initial shock of the crash, it was pure entertainment for us. We saw a firetruck, police, motorcycle cop, and a tow truck. It was a dream come true for Michael! All of his favorite things!!! For supper, we met Poppop at Macaroni Grill and enjoyed a dinner out. That night, the girls had a sleep over over at Grandma and Poppop Oman's house. Michael and I went on a little date to Target. He even got me some flowers!!! The rest of the week we have spent playing with friends and toys, sleeing in the living room and just taking it easy. Thursday, I took the girls to the beauty school and we all got manicures and pedicures. The kids loved seeing the place that I went to school. Michael went over to his friend Giovanni's house to play while we were getting our nails done. After a yummy lunch at IHOP, we went and got Michael and then share our equally fun experiences with one another; I think that he was pretty happy that he had gotten to play with his buddy instead of endure nails. All in all, it has been a great vacation. The past 2 days, Michael and Meredith have had high fevers so we've been watching a lot of movies and taking a lot of naps. The sun is shining brightly this morning, so hopefully the three of us (that is all that is at home right now) can get outside and enjoy that today. Happy Spring!!
