Spring Break Week!

First off, thank for those that read my last post and said a prayer for my friends Ami and her sister Beth.  The transplant surgery went good and Ami herself was posting on FB later that same evening.  Good is good!  Now may they both have a successful recovery and long, happy healthy lives!

Now onto what we have been up to this week...

Last week Hope was on Spring Break, so Joe was off with her all week.  They had a VERY busy week.

Hope started her week off spending the weekend with Grandma D and the twins.  They had a lot of fun since they hadn't seen her in over a month.  They were all glad she was finally home.  :)

Since Joe and I had the weekend to ourselves, we got tickets to the Barnstormer's indoor area football game.  Too bad they lost, but we had a good time.



On Monday morning Hope had a dentist appointment where she found out she had her first (& second) cavity that need to be filled, so she had that done on Tuesday.


She was pretty brave through it all.


So that afternoon, Joe took her to the indoor golf dome and they hit some golf balls.


Pretty cute, huh?


She was also obsessed with wearing these sunglasses she found in the drawer.


Joe has become addicted to buying on Groupon, and got a deal for a local pottery place, so he took Grandma D, Annie, Ally and Hope to make some pottery.  I can't wait to see all their creations when we pick them up this week.


Joe celebrated his birthday on Thursday.  Here is the shirt we got him.  The name of our church is Hope (yes, the same name as our daughter).  He is going to start doing some volunteer work there, so we thought he might like to have a shirt to wear.
We wrapped it in brown paper and Hope drew a picture to decorate it.  It is a picture of the three of us.


Yesterday they were busy doing some outdoor work.  Hope cleaned the garage.



And they went for a bike ride (and took puppy and Bambi too).


They rode to the park and played for a while.


Today they went fishing...


It was a beautiful day to be outside.  I walked down to the lake and by then Hope was done fishing, so we decided to go for a walk down the bike trail.  We talked about all kinds of thing...some that made me giggle.  :)  She wanted to hold my hand the entire walk and that made my heart melt.


Tonight we ate out at Joe's Crab shack and then walked around the lake area at the mall.  She posed for a few photos on the rocks and we watched the fish, geese and ducks get fed some bread by some other kids.




One more day and then it is back to like as we know it!  I think she had a pretty fun Spring Break with daddy (while I worked) :(  

In honor of Joe's birthday...here is the card I gave him.


Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
