New Ventures in life.....

Well home from Spring Break Vacation...what a blast!!! So much fun in so little time! We did a full day of Colonial Williamsburg (and still didnt see it all) then a full day of Jamestown and then the day all the kids couldnt wait for...a full day at Bush Gardens Europe...yeah, it was amazing and exhausting at the same time LOL :) Lots of fun learning about history and how our wonderful country got it's beginning, watching a skit about the beginnings of the Revolutionary War and the landing in Va. at Jamestown. It was great and the kids throughly enjoyed it!

Our day at Bush Gardens was great as well. Our oldest Daughter is a true thrill seeker as she rode every major rollercoaster in that park. They do have a new rollercoaster there called "The Griffon" but sadly it wasnt open for operation...that totally bummed my Husband and Daughter as that was the ride they were going to make history on (whatever!!!)

Anyway, here we are back home safe and sound and with minds full of wonderful memories made on our trip!

Now, on to my new venture in life....I am opening a home business (yes, I am brave considering I already have a very full life and am now adding to that) online. I will be selling crocheted children's blankets. It's a business I've wanted to start for a very long time, but only now do I have the time (somewhat) and the bravery to go full steam ahead in this venture of mine.

Wish me luck...our grand opening is May 15th...so lots to do and little time to do it in, but then again isnt that what my life is all about anyway...so I'm going to be right at home :)

Family Vacation...what's that???

Excitement is filling the air here in our house. Spring break is coming next week and everyone is giddy and talking about nothing else. Why is this spring break so exciting and different from all the others of the past in our family? Because, this spring break brings our first ever family vacation...the kids can talk about nothing else!

We head to Va. come Monday...our plans include a week of fun and education (yes, those two things can come hand in hand) the education part will be a visit to Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown, Yorktown and possibly a visit to the Marine Corps Museum in Quantico Va. and the fun part will be a day long visit to Bush Gardens Europe.

Plans are being made by our children on what ride they will ride first, who will ride with who and how brave they can be for those huge rollercoasters at Bush Gardens. On the adult side of the spectrum plans are being made about how great Williamsburg will be, Jamestown and Yorktown...how our children will get to see first hand some of the history of our great country and how things worked back then. Then of course should be get to see the MC Museum that will be a great visit too as it will bring home the Marine Corps to our children who already hold great pride in the Corps (our oldest DD refuses to even acknowledge any other service than the Corps as she says "the Marine Corps is the best of the best...the few and proud") and what the Corps has stood for in the over 200 years they have exsisted!

I do believe this will be a great trip for us all, time spent as a family without having to worry about the daily grind of our lives back home...yeah...it will be a great family vacation for sure!!! My husband is especially excited as he's taking leave for the trip...leave usually means getting time off so he can work on something else we need to get done...it never exsists of leave for just some time off to relax...that man is a workaholic for sure!

In honor of our vacation I went out yesterday and took the plunge...I actually got my hair cut (my hair was way past my behind) got it styled and cut pretty short...boy was that a shocker to my family, but it was long needed and wow, do I feel better!!! Easier to take care of, and lighter on my head for sure :)

Spring is in the air and along with that the excitement of new life, new beginnings and new fun...our family is starting our spring with this vacation and for that I'm very thankful...from our family to yours may your spring break be as fun filled as I believe ours will be this year!!!

Happy Spring everyone!!!!
