Easter & Spring Break 2013

The above photo summarizes our trip better than I can, though of course that won't stop me from writing more or posting more photos. It was another magical week of time with family, interspersed with erratic behavior from a certain toddler who struggled to adjust to the time change just a tad. You can get away with a lot when you're two (and maybe a little too much when you're the third child, but we're addressing that). She did come away from the week able to sing "Bee bi biddily i oh," so it was an overall success for her, too.

We kicked things off with a trip to the beach to help pass the time before the cousins arrived. Danny and Clare were in their glory, playing some mystery game together that incorporated Laura when she was willing. Laura was fairly cautious on the beach, but enjoyed "going for a little walk" and looking for seashells, all of which she insisted on storing in Tim's pocket.

Following a tasty lunch at In-N-Out, we returned home and soon the Needhams arrived. From then on, it was a whirlwind of playing outside, eating, movies, Easter, the zoo, the beach and hero worship of Uncle John by Danny (but not Laura - ha!).

We are so blessed to have so many marvelous memories with our families. We love you all!
