Spring Break

Spring Break was a blast! It was an insight to what being a SAHM would be like. Christmas Break wasn’t so much as we were traveling the entire time, but Spring Break, we mostly stayed home as Justin worked throughout the week.

I had participated in an Easter Swap hosted by Peculiar Treasures. We were paired up and to get an Easter treat, preferably local treats and a card with an Easter scripture. I gave a gift to Kinberley from Peculiar Treasures and I received one from Emilie.  She is part Brazilian, so she sent me her favorite Brazilian white chocolate Easter egg. It was huge and delicious! I am so glad to have gotten to know Emilie!

Last Friday, March 27th, was my last day of teaching. So, that night, we went to my parents’ house in Farmington. Rhys was already there, as my mom watched him while Justin and I worked. He was just having the time of his life with his aunts and uncle and puppy cousins! It was a fun weekend of relaxing, going through childhood mementos as my parents started cleaning out and simplifying their household. Saturday, we went to Texas Roadhouse as my sister has a job there. Afterward, Mom, Dad, Paige, Rhys and I went to a local park and had a fun time enjoying the good weather.

During last week, Rhys and I stayed home, enjoying each other’s company. We also went shopping for new clothes for me, and were somewhat successful. I also started getting up with Justin and making him breakfast. I thought to myself this week that I could get used to living like this.

This past weekend, we went down to spend the weekend with Justin’s brother and his family. The last time we were down there was for Thanksgiving and Rhys was almost 5 moths old and was just scooting around. He was so excited to see his cousins again, crawled after them, “tackled” them, and gave them a barrage of kisses. He had the time of his life playing with them and their toys. Justin and I enjoyed their company, as well as Jason and Rachel’s, watching movies after all the kids were in bed.

He didn’t actually eat any candy 😉

A Walk in the Park

We are very lucky to have a park right next to our townhome. So, almost every day, Rhys and I venture out there while grabbing the mail.
Justin was home today, so we took advantage of the evening and went on a walk as a family. The park has two baseball diamonds, a playground, a tennis court, a pavilion, and a jogging path with ditch that runs by it. It ends where an old railroad for transporting rocks, coal, and other materials from the quarries in the mountains across valley was.
We saw this big dog in a backyard on our walk. Justin loves big dogs. I immediately thought of the beast from the Sandlot.
We both LOVE birds of pray and saw this beauty. We were able to sneak up pretty close to it before it flew away. In a different life, Justin would’ve been a falconer!

At this small “memorial”, Justin, Rhys, and I sat in the shade and just enjoyed the weather.
