Thoughts from Spring Break...
We left home two weeks ago today.

We arrived back home one week ago from today.

It feels like we've been home a month... that's how "back in the swing" we are here in our routine.

I'm ready to go back to the 80 degrees. It was beautiful our entire time in Orlando.

It's only 53 degrees here today... and cloudy... very gloomy.

We're definitely not in Florida anymore.

Our journey began as a threesome and two days later we added five more to the mix. My brother Craig, sister-in-law Diana and their three kids Tori, Chandler and Olivia joined us for our spring break.

Phil and Perry started their first full day of vacation playing the "greatest game of all." Perry came home that afternoon with a grimace on his face. He had a tough nine hole game after beginning his round with a 200 yard drive that apparently was a sight to behold by other gentlemen watching him tee off. For a good two holes, he was feeling rather good.

But suddenly his game turned and he was upset.

He is just like his dad.

By the third day, family had arrived - and we were ready! Hanging out with just mom and dad can get a little old. Time for some real action to begin...

We swam in the pools
We rode swans
We went to Downtown Disney
We ate birthday cake
We played cards
We watched movies
We went to Kennedy Space Center
We talked to a real astronaut
We watched American Idol and voted for our hometown boy David Cook
We ate dinner at some very cool places
We went to the Lego store
We tried on unique Crocs and was tempted to buy a pair
We factory outlet shopped
We just hung out...

It was a divine vacation.

Especially seen through the eyes of my favorite kids...
