Spring Break 2010

I really didn't want to take a spring break this year. We are still recovering from our China trip and Chuck has to work the week of Spring Break. Also, there really is no reason for us to take a specific spring break because we home-school and take random breaks throughout the year and go on family trips.  Our favorites are going camping and beach trips to Gulf Shores, Alabama.  Ahh, the fluffy white beaches....I am really wanting  needing a beach trip in the worst way. I miss everything about the beach and somehow, it doesn't seem like Spring Break without a good ol' beach trip. But, I am not taking three children on a beach trip by myself.

So, after several rainy, cold days, we ditched the school work and headed over to Tuscaloosa for a family birthday party and some time with Ninny and Papa ( Chuck's parents).

Maggie felt real, green grass for the first time ! She was not too happy about it and kept her hand closed.

Chuck's dad (Papa) made these Mandolins himself ! He is an incredible, talented wood worker and can make anything.  He showed the boys how to play a Mandolin during our visit.  Since Will plays the violin and Walker plays the guitar, they were very interested.  We love bluegrass music and I love that Papa took the time to show the boys about this beautiful instrument.
