Where oh where have you gone

I miss you.  Yes, I am talking to you spring break.  You blew out of my life just as quickly as you blew in.  Staying around just long enough to make me mourn you.  Touching my heart just enough to make me long for you.

While you were here we played,

ate some amazing food (ya know since we had time to cook)!

We had some silly pic days

and we napped…..

Ok so some of us napped.  Others played the Wii, while one in particular did a lot of cleaning (and picture snapping)!

Then you sent us the Easter Bunny 🙂

Some where more excited about the Easter Bunny treats than others.

and posed for family photos!  By the way spring break, this is the first year in I can’t tell you how many years that I actually, purposely purchased a dress just for the holiday/occasion.

Isn’t it dashing 🙂 

A chick round up is always fun!  We must put those little cuties in a closed pen where nothing can get to them.  Hopefully by next year we will be getting some eggs off of those little darlings.  Yes I said we.  Because what is mom’s/dad’s is daughters.  No those are not my darling little chicks.  They belong to my parents!

We had an awesome little egg hunt for the kiddos…

Which requires the adult men to hide eggs in crazy, ridiculous places.  Why do they still act like boys no matter the age??

Thankfully many of them were in easy, average places….if there is a such thing as easy, average egg hiding places.

Of course the hubster will feel like he has nothing to do but kick back after the meal.  He did cook it after all.  We had bbq!  Sorry no pics, I was too busy stuffing my face 🙂

Then you dad will request a picture with you because you have on a “purty” dress (his words not mine), and you will realize that everyone in the world will know you now.  You know because your dad is the definition of hillbilly.  It is true, his pic is in the dictionary right next to the word!

AND….then you left!  I really need an explanation for you departure.  Why did you leave after such a beautiful fun filled day?  Why did you stay just long enough to tease me with late mornings, great food, and lots of family time?

I must have an explanation from you spring break!  We are so over, just saying!  I have a newer love now.  You will be sorry that you missed out on me.  My new love will be here in six weeks.  Hello summer break, I can’t wait for your arrival 🙂
