Once again, our annual family garage sale with Nathan's family was a success.  We made around $260 and the girls made around $65 from their canteen/loom bracelets, after chipping in $10 to the garage sale fund.  Paid for pizza and ice cream cake tonight.  The rest will be used towards the lunch buffet at the livery barn restaurant sometime in summer.

It was beautiful seeing this fiery sunset in the van mirror while driving home from the city.

Delicious treats at my choir wind-up potluck tonight.  These are "hamburgers and fries" for dessert.  Hickory sticks, vanilla wafer cookies, chocolate mints, with colored icing for the mustard, ketchup, and relish.  I got to take some leftovers home for the kids - they loved them!

Emma was the first to jump in the pool this year!  It had only been heating up for 2 days so it was still really chilly, but they enjoyed the hot tub for the first time.  Finally, warm weather has arrived!

Working on my PowerPoint for the song I'm singing in church this Sunday. The theme is the Holy Spirit working in our lives, and this song was a perfect fit.

Today I got to go to Giselle's for a massage and pedicure for my Mother's Day gift - it was so relaxing!  Ignore my weird foot discoloration in this picture.

Having a blast at Sophia's hockey windup. "That was awesome! That was awesome!" as he went down the slide over and over again.

Here's Olivia working on hers.

2nd BBQ of the year. Should've used bigger plates - couldn't fit my coleslaw and bread on the plate. It was delicious!

I had a couple errands to run and so I HAD to stop at Main Bread & Butter for lunch. Mmmmm

We had Gospel Night at church tonight.  Of the 31 or so songs sung/performed, I played piano for 27 of them.  My fingers were a little tired by the end of the evening.  This was one of the choir songs - the one I got to sing in instead of play for.

Another birthday celebration!  Jody and I share the exact same birthday - but a year apart (I'm older).  We celebrated at The Keg.  It had been way too long since we'd gotten together but it felt like it was just yesterday at the same time.

Our husbands took us out for our birthdays - better late than never!  Buccacinos for supper and Baked Expectations for dessert.  Mmmmmm!

Spring is slowing making it's way here - so we've got the net set up by the pool for the kids to practice their shots.
