Spring Break '08!

Well, here we are - the end of a wonderful spring break. Although I'm rested, the house is clean, laundry is going, & I have fresh sheets on the bed, I think I could still use just one more week off...I guess I'm operating on the the theory of you give me an inch, I'll take a mile (or another week in this case).

Before I get into the goodness that has been my spring break - I've added two friends to my side bar - Amanda & Sarah O. if you want to check out their blogs. onto our week of fun.

Sunday morning (yes, that was Easter) we left Portland at 6:30 am - (yikes!) to fly to Boise. Tim's parents picked us up (thank you again Richard & Faith) & took us to Nyssa where Tim grew up. We went to church with them & then came home for a delish lunch & much needed naps. After we woke up, we headed back to Boise to have dinner with my parents & my cousin Stacie & her husband. We had a wonderful dinner together. Then we messed around Boise for a bit before taking a detour back to Nyssa (via my old house - thanks for driving us by that Richard - I loved seeing it again).

Monday we played in Nyssa & Ontario with Tim's parents. It was good to spend time with them, just doing what they do...we also visited Tim's grandmother. That evening we headed to my parents house for dinner & to stay with them.

Tuesday Tim worked & I played with my mom. We went for a massage (thank you Mom!!), shopped, & played around. We had a wonderful time, just mother & daughter. I miss that...
Tuesday night we went to Andrea's. I went with her to Bunko & had a fabulous time! It was so fun to be with those women playing a fun game & seeing what Andrea's Bunko group is like. My good friend Bethany was there too - so it was super fun to see her.

Wednesday was mess around day. We went & visited my grandfather, had lunch with my parents & hung out. Wednesday night I got together with some lovely girls from my old youth group. It was SOOO fun to see them again & hang out. I think we were gone for over 3 hours. Here is a picture of My Andrea & me before we left to meet the girls.

Here is a picture of the 5 of us at dinner. What a wonderful evening we had...

Then we took our party to Baskin Robbins for some chocolaty goodness. Yumm!!!

Thursday my mother-in-law had invited us over for a tea party. My mom & I went & we had an absolutely wonderful time. Faith outdid herself (as usual) & spoiled us with delicious food & a beautiful setting. (I have pictures of this that I will post later). Tim's aunts & cousin joined us & it was a great afternoon filled with love & time together. That evening Andrea & I watched Dan In Real Life. What a great movie - loved it.

Friday was play with Andrea day. We shopped around, played, & enjoyed our time together. That afternoon we all headed to the airport, where Andrea, her mom & sister joined us on our plane & flew to Portland. They were heading for girls weekend, which I crashed on Saturday. After a 2 hour delay, we were finally on our way to Portland. We arrived home late that night - but it was SO good to be home. We had such a wonderful time in Boise, & appreciated our parents & friends letting us stay with them - thank you so much for making our trip so fun!!!

Saturday Tim & I hung out, then I headed to Portland to shop with Andrea & her mom & sister. Tim joined us later for dinner at Marco's Cafe - yummm!! It was so fun (& so nice of your mom & sister) to let me join you on girls weekend. Thank you! Here's a self portrait we took at the mall...

I have many, many more photos to share - come back soon to check them out!!
