Busy week

It's been an incredibly busy week this week as I took off with the family to Pennsylvania for spring break, swung through west Virginia, landed in Charlotte, NC for a few days and then finally came home to stuff, stuff, stuff.

PA was great. We saw family and got all the cousins together. The kids are all around the same age, and get along great. One of my favorite days was when we took all the kids to a big park and played in the water. We took off our shoes and waded through the cool waters of a rocky stream and made (tried to make) a rock bridge for future use.

It was hard for me to fathom that some of the cousins had never learned how to skip stones. So it was my son's mission to teach them how. It was a great day.

We also spent a day at the Pittsburgh zoo.

I couldn't have asked for better weather.

We left and headed down through WV on our way to Charlotte. There the kids were competing in a state championship for Odyssey of the mind. I had to see someone about a bird, and when we got back here we were welcomed with bees and babies - I'll post on those later.
