i’ve spent a lot of time trying to organize these photos into some sort of grouping that makes sense, but also accounts for the dimensions, orientation, and quality of the photos. but, april was such a strange month, fully of visits and cakes and such, so the random leftovers of april are just that, very […]
spring break with holden (and fam).
if you don’t already know, thanks to previous posts (zoo, cookies, tulips), my baby brother’s family came down to spend spring break with us this year. my girls were so very excited to have an entire week of holden time, and holden was pretty excited about an entire week of being doted on by two […]
easter cookie mania.
spring break this year happened to be the week before easter, which meant that holden and fam were able to join us in some of our easter traditions and activities. one such tradition in this house involves an overkill of spring themed sprinkles and the decorating of easter cookies. with hazel down for the count, […]
easter-ish, including a family gathering, indoors!
And now, for this year’s Easter festivities and shenanigans. First off. Anna and I signed up for a natural dyeing workshop at the Village Fabric Shop. We had debated doing our own natural dyeing, but it seemed rather labor intensive, so when this opportunity presented itself, we gladly forked over the cash for the chance […]
lockdown easter activities.
as we rolled towards easter, it was pretty apparent that it was going to be spent in quarantine. so, i did what any quarantine mom would do. i ordered $20 worth of sprinkles from michaels curbside pick up and made cookies to decorate. i found an egg shaped cookie cutter in my baking supplies that […]
easter eggs. 2019.
back home, in north carolina, we settled into our “local” campground, while we looked for a house. it was sort of whirlwind, so i’m sure my timeline might get out of whack, but i do know it was almost easter. so, we obviously had to dye eggs. we may have picked up one or two […]
soledad canyon happenings.
after our two weeks at california state beaches with no hookups, we headed inland for a break at soldedad canyon thousand trails rv park, to clean, do laundry, recover, do some rv upgrades, and so on. as always, when we find ourselves in less exciting places, we try to have a bit of routine with […]
oliver lee state park.week two.
our second week at oliver lee state park (alamogordo) was pretty low-key. we kicked it off with easter sunday. the kids had already had an egg hunt and eaten all of their candy, so all they had left by way of gifts and celebrations was a basket with a couple of toys. it’s pretty hard […]
oliver lee state park. week one.
we are halfway through our two week stay at oliver lee state park in alamogordo, new mexico. it’s one of the better locations we have found ourselves at, in terms of the view. it’s a state park, so we don’t have sewer hookups, which mean bath houses and trips to the dump station and extreme […]
our last days in a house.
i was going to try to categorize this blog into several different blogs. one for “prepping to move out”, one for “easter eggs”, one for “hazel pottytrains”…. but, i’m just going to glob it all together here, and be all caught up, and move on with my life… here goes… on the night we arrived […]
