Spring Break Escapades

Whew! Talk about a whirlwind these past 2 weeks have been! I flew off to Philadelphia the first week of break to be a part of my dear friend Jennifer's wedding. She was a beautiful bride (of course!) and the wedding and reception were at the amazing Mendenhall Inn. I tell you, the reception area was gorgeous. The big chandelier, the gorgeous purple flowers and the overall hospitality of the place was unbeatable.

I wish I had a few days to see the sights there but between the bridal shower, luncheon, rehearsal dinners and last-minute errands with the bride, my 4 days there went by in what seemed like the blink of an eye.

I met many of Jennifer's friends from Florida, the U.K. and even Australia. The good hearts and sincere warmth of all of Jennifer's friends definitely speaks novels about what an extraordinary person she is.

Meanwhile, hubby and and the kid flew down to L.A. to visit family and spend a day at Universal Studios. A good time was definitely had by the looks of the pictures.

After returning home for a day we ended up taking a last-minute camping trip since warm weather needed to be taken advantage of. We kept it close to home and complete with water since both were hubby's "requirements." The kids enjoyed themselves, Darren caught the only fish of the trip (that's my boy!) and lots of good food and conversation ruled our 3 days there.

So it's back to school today and thankfully I have Mondays off so I am taking the day today to recover from these past 2 weeks.

Oh, and did I mention that we're off camping again in less than 2 weeks? The kids have 4 days off of school for Easter so let the countdown begin: 10 days til takeoff!
