spring break

Typically we have spent spring break traveling…lounging on a beach…hiking a canyon…dining on food in another city…relaxing as a family.  However, this year we opted to stay right here in Minnesota…and then a snowstorm fell on the city…AND we still managed to have some fun…

  1. cheered UND Sioux hockey to victory
  2. snuck into a friend’s hot tub!
  3. hosted dinner (see the lovely mile high lemon cake below a friend baked to share)
  4. enjoyed a bucket of popcorn at an afternoon matinee with my sweet hubby
  5. rented movies from redbox
  6. finished 2 books…radical and pearl in the sand
  7. strep test at the clinic…negative
  8. napped and played backgammon
  9. surfed the internet and discovered the most amazing weddings…and chocolate dipped macaroons…and reminisced about this vacation spot
  10. viewed photos on facebook of our friends vacationing…in cabo san lucas and the grand caymans…at disneyworld and spring training…on a caribbean cruise ship…and no sunburn for my hubby this year!  :)
