Hello, friends! How’s the week treating you so far? Last week was Spring Break in our part of the world so I’m slowly getting into the swing of things. It hasn’t been too bad thus far, and, luckily, we’re out Friday so they’re easing us back in nice and slow!
Spring Break is such a nice treat, and this year was especially sweet since we had some fantastic weather just about every day. You guys know I’m no fan of spring, but we had a string of those rare perfect days that delude people into thinking they actually like this time of year. I spent a fair amount of time outside playing with pups, and I used some of my days off to indulge myself in my new secret hobby
Mom and Joel came up for a night, and we, along with John, took my niece and two nephews to see Zootopia. You guys, this movie was so cute! It has been many moons since I’ve seen an animated movie, and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this one. I would definitely watch this one multiple times.
Mom, Joel, and I took the pups up Cavanal the next morning which was a lot of fun. I don’t think I’ve climbed The World’s Highest Hill since last summer, and it was quite a bit easier than I remembered. I guess all this running has paid off
Max and Gus enjoyed themselves too, but the poor guys were so worn out they did very little but sleep the rest of the day. They’re not used to that much exercise!
Thankfully, the nice weather has held into the first part of this week which means we have movement at the Ford property!
That’s right, the new house is officially under constructed. The builders dug and poured the footings yesterday, and, if everything goes right, we should have a concrete pad next week! I anticipate things looking very, very different in the next few weeks so stay tuned!
Last but not least, I have some exciting news to share that I’ve been keeping under my hat for the last month or so. IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Please do not misunderstand; the following picture was created by my sister and brother-in-law to announce their exciting news (read: it’s not me!!).
I’m going to be an auntie again x 2!! Caite and Justin are expecting twins in October, and I am over the moon excited about it. These babies are already ridiculously loved, and life is about to take on a whole new look Also, note the structure of the announcement. I think it is safe to say John and I have successfully brought those two over to the backpacking dark side!
