Breaking in Spring

My mother came and visited for Spring Break this year. It was the perfect time to visit, because we were all ready to do nothing but play games and chill. Some years we have a schedule and expansive plan, but this time around, we went minimalist.

Color Me Mine made the short list. Only the older girls painted with Grandma (since they had to pay their way) and they spent most of a day creating their designs.

June and Robyn didn't finish yet, but Grandma's turtle turned out very nicely.

We played a bazillion games while Grandma visited. When we weren't beating her at cards (or being beaten), the girls (especially Pearl) liked to do her hair. This was a favorite style.

Grandma's hair is fine and wispy so you can comb it into fun dos.

I took her to a play one evening. We got Tricia and went to Peter and the Starcatchers. I thought it was very fun, but the dialogue was a little hard to follow at the beginning, so it left us guessing at a bit of the plot. But it was still worth the trip.

Naturally. we did our family Crack Off, but that is worth a post of its own...coming soon.

We finally got our flip flops. I found them for super cheap at Hobby Lobby. I didn't let anyone pick, I just grabbed different colors, but I think they look very cute.

It was a really great week hanging out with my mom. I wish more of my family could have visited, but we will take whoever we can get.

Luckily, she is just as silly as we are, so it's a perfect match.

Come anytime, Grandma!

You may regret that invitation if I move in permanently! I had a wonderful time - and I also wish more of the family could have been present. Although I am the big game player.
