Spring Break Trip

Seldom do we follow the traditional school vacation schedules, but this year we did so Jonathan could get a break from classes and visit with his grandparents. Our Spring Break destination was Missouri.Our first stop was in Lebanon where I met my Internet friend Ann. We actually went to the same school when growing up but did not get to know each other until recently.
Elizabeth had such a good time playing with her cousins Matthew and Samuel.
While the kids played at the park Jonathan tested out the running trail. He really loved being able to run up and down hills and smelling all the wonderful trees that surrounded the park.
During our stay we experienced many different types of weather; snow was by far our favorite!
Most of our vacation plans changed because of the weather so we occupied ourselves with Scrabble. Elizabeth nearly won thanks to having help from her grandma!
When six o'clock rolled around each day Elizabeth loved being smothered in hugs and kisses from her grandpa!
During one of our outings my sister took us to an Asian market where we saw many, many forms of sea creatures. The biggest shocker was giant fish heads, on sale for $1.29 per pound. I don't think I would take them even if they were free.
After our visit ended, and we were on our way back home, we made one last stop to visit my friend Rita. It had been 9-years since we last saw each other. Rita and I were best friends in school and have been able to keep up with each other all these years.
Vacations are always fun, especially when you get to see family and friends.
