Hello Strangers!

What can I say ... it's spring break, I turned 40 (40!) and have been too busy celebrating to blog.  That's all about to change.  I will post some photos and start organizing my next post which should come very very soon.

Lucy is great.  She sort of left school before spring break on a bad note but I am sure sure sure that she'll go into the last 3 months with a renewed attitude and an ability to take direction from adults (like her teacher).  I am sure.  I am sure.   Please please please!

Here is Lucy and Zep on her last day of school before spring break.  Obviously it's St Patrick's Day, which leads me to think that perhaps it was the naughty leprechauns that got her in trouble that afternoon.
In the above photo both Lucy and Zep were p-o'd that I made them stand for a photo. 
but as you can see they totally kissed and made up for the madness.

 In a related development the kitties decided that so intense is their hatred for Zep the dog, that they actually like each other.

Our friend Ivy joined in on Lucy and Morgan's big spring break play date at a pool and an indoor playground!

You might not be able to tell from this photo but both girls were on a mini time-out for
committing mutiny on the adult-in-charge during our post swim snack. 

Lucy immediately ditched Ivy and climbed up to the roof (see her up there???)

we also went to the Mn History Center for the first time. What a hoot!  We love it!

Lucy is working the old-fashioned ice-cream parlour at the history center while momma watches the tv behind her rebroadcasting the attack on pearl harbor. 

I've been trying new recipes.  Lucy seemed to like the honey/soy noodles and the ginger/garlic flank steak combo.  Could have also been the result of my lack of interest in giving her a real breakfast or lunch this day, who knows.

we painted some miniture bird houses. Lucy was in her evening gown and high heels of course.

Spring break is basically over.  It was so much fun.  Loved this week of busy times and down times. It did us both a lot of good.
