England Day 2

On our second packed filled day we headed to Stratford-Upon-Avon and toured Trinity Holy Church (where Shakesphere is buried) and the town he grew up in. We also toured his father's home where he was raised and also the home he owned as an adult.  Along with his gardens in the back...
While in the small, quaint town, we stopped for tea, hot chocolate and yummy scones.
Such a beautiful country... so much green.  And the weather is delightful.

Our Trip To England

I am finally getting around to sharing my pictures from our trip to England in April.
On our first day we journeyed from London to Haworth, England where the Bronte Parsonage is.
We stayed the night in a lovely bed and breakfast and then woke up and walked the moors where novels like "Wuthering Heights" was inspired.  
We also visited the family church, where the father was a pastor and the graveyard.
The countryside was so beautiful.  A light rain sprinkled on us as we walked.

After learning all about the Bronte sister we headed to the small town and had a nice lunch, consisting of soup, tea and yummy bread with real butter.

It was a wonderful day.
It was a trip of a lifetime and I hope to share more of our visits soon : )

We have been on vacation in Hawaii... we have had a very relaxing and enjoyable time.

After a very busy season it has been a nice break in our crazy life.

Blogging Again...

Life has been crazy busy....
We were so blessed to be able to go to England and Ireland in April and we pretty much have not come up for air since....

End of Year Awards Ceremony for Softball.
Haiti Fundraiser Tea.
Awana Citation Award Ceremony.
Growth Group End of Year Celebration.
Senior Week at her school.
And Finally, 
Which means company and party prep for this momma : )

The week since graduation we have had a grad party every night for other kids we know and today she has Grad Night at Disneyland.
I am a driver : )

So, I did not have a chance to try to blog but I do see light at the end of this very busy season in my life.
I keep telling myself, I am going to be bored next year...

Another View....

Here is a pic of my son and his girlfriend on his birthday...
This is the inside of the book display.

My husband and I tried to figure out how they managed to keep those books in place.  Not sure but our only thought was glue...

Feeling 22!

Last weekend my boy turned 22! We celebrated him by taking him to some of his favorite places.
We started at a famous Hot Dog place called Pinks in L.A. and then headed to a large bookstore that used to be a bank.  He spent a lot of time in the History section.  His favorite (hence the fact that he is  a History major). 
Then we headed to the Griffith Observatory.

Fun times!

Trying to Stay Afloat....

So much going on over here...
I am trying to get ready to leave the country! So exciting but sometimes it is all a bit too much.
I have a lot of things that all end at the same time.
Student Ministry
My Discipleship Girls Group
End of Year Awards and.....
Let's just throw a trip out of the county in there...

I keep telling myself to breath and enjoy it because when it is over it is over... : (
So- I keep going with my long to-do list...

I have been going through pics like crazy for Senior stuff and I found the top sweet gem... 
This was from one of our many trips to Disneyland.

The second picture is from the photo shoot I did for my friend's daughter.

And Happy Resurrection Day!
