A Second House

We bit the bullet and bought a playset (second house) for the kids this weekend. With summer fast approaching, we thought it best to get this thing up now. Little did we know, "getting this thing up now," wasn't quite how it happened! But with Nick's perseverance, his brilliant construction skills (seriously you needed an engineering degree to read the instructions) and a lot of patience, Sunday afternoon we were in business!

A Few (Hundred) Extras

Spring Break Part 2

Before we left Orlando, we took a day trip to LegoLand where Max was free of Princesses and fairy dust for a few hours. The rest of our vacation was spent on the coast in Melbourne Beach. We lounged, built sandcastles, collected seashells and dodged some big waves in the Atlantic. The Saturday before Easter we headed back home and were happy to sleep in our own warm, sand-free beds. It was our first vacation as a family of five and we definitely filled it with lots of great memories.
