Yippee - we got a new car! Well, new to me, and certainly newer than the '93 Toyota minivan I've been driving for the last 9 years. At 264,000 miles, I was ready to move on! I guess it's not the norm to add a new baby to the family and get a smaller car, but that what we did anyhow. I went down to a Honda Accord sedan. It's not that often that all 5 of us are in the car at once, and only 1 person is in a carseat now. I really wanted better gas mileage, and found this little beauty for a great deal on craigslist... plus, I got to re-learn how to drive a stick shift!
** I'll add a photo tomorrow ;) **
In honor of having a road-worthy car again, we drove to Charlotte for Easter weekend. I made my usual thrift store stops along the way, and got some great inventory (gotta love those big city thrift stores!) Then we headed to my brother & sister-in-law's house. My only regret from the weekend is that we didn't get any photos of all the cousins together! Ugh! Well, I've got lots of the baby, so I guess that'll have to do :)
My little nephews are sweet as pie! Corrin is 2 and was digging having little ZB there to get into mischief with him - they thought it was a party as soon as the air-mattresses were brought out -
Aunt Julia didn't disappoint with her cute easter baskets. And Uncle Scott was excited to get to stage a multi-difficulty-level egg hunt. And of course the boys were excited about it all - especially the candy part ;)
ZB discovered the joy of the little plastic car that she can climb in. She played with it for quite a while last night, and then during the Easter egg hunt, made a bee-line to it ... good thing Uncle Scott hid an egg in the car - at least she found one egg.
After church, we spent most of the day outdoors ...
We all love that they live right next to a fun playground...
We came back to the house and the boys rolled around in the hammock (literally, doing rolls - oh, I don't know how that poor hammock is still hanging), I got to garden with Corrin and snuggle with cutie little 7 month old Hudson, and even help Julia make a fabulous grilled lamb dinner - yum!!
Thanks for having us Scott & Julia (and kids) - a great place to take our first road trip in quite some time!
