The Stations of the Cross

Blessings to you at Easter! I wanted to share a beautiful video that my dear son Philip made of his little brother Anthony's class performing the Stations of the Cross in shadow play. It was very touching, the fifth graders were wonderful- what a great Easter gift to their parents!

Three Wonderful National Parks

Well, let's try this blogging idea again! That was one big break!

This year we have been lucky enough to visit three of our wonderful National Parks! First, a weekend trip to Utah and wonderful Zion and Bryce National Parks- both breathtaking beautiful! The next a "day" trip to Death Valley. Do you call 5:30 am Sunday to 12:30 am Monday a day trip? :) It was certainly a long day but well worth the trip- so many interesting land features from huge salt flats to the "Artist's Palette", canyons that look as if they were splashed with different colors of chalk! We had never been to any of these parks and yet we live so close! It's true- some times we don't appreciate the things that are right in front of us.
hmmmmmm... I wonder which park we will get to explore next?

Lulu Schnitzel

When we first brought home Lulu, I ran into a lady at my son's school who asked me if she was our "first dachshund?". I said yes and she told me that their family had had many. She then ended with a laugh and said "they're funny- you"ll see!" ....

She was right! :)

We love you Lulu!

Time for a little RAK

Today I dropped into a bookstore with a bookmark that I had made. I decided to go to the "self help" section and slide it between two books. Hopefully it will make someone smile soon :)

Love in a text message

RAK- it's so easy these days to send a text message to someone you love- for a change take a photo of a message that you hand write and send it to someone special- you can have fun and write the message on a piece of fruit- a rock- anything!
This is one I sent my hubby today :)
Anthony's RAK on his second day of summer vacation was spent at school (yes- you read it right!) helping his 4th grade teacher move into a new classroom! Go Anthony!!!

Our First RAK!

This afternoon Anthony and I did our first RAK for our Summer Love Project. We headed to the store to purchase two happy face balloons. On the side we wrote notes... "Happy Monday! We hope that you have a great week!" Then we headed out to find a couple of cars to put them on. When we were done Anthony was soooo happy and excited! :) "We should get more balloons!" What a fun way to start our summer! hugs, lori

Outdoor Art Wall :)

As we were driving through Claremont we spotted this "outdoor gallery". Filled with fun children's art it was outside of a home right along the street. I'm thinking of doing this in the alley behind our home... we can call it "Alley Art" :) Will post a picture when we get it up!
