The last time I had a full on Spring Break was high school (thanks, BYU). And now I am not even a student, but I enjoyed it anyway (thanks flexible at-home job!) We started the week with a few estate/rummage sales, coming away with a sweatshirt, skirt, owl figurine, and 2 yards of fabric for a grand total of 85 cents. Next was Boise, with a lot of food, a wall of frozen yogurt, and this:
That is a helmet I'm wearing. After a two year hiatus and all this Natasha Richardson stuff, you know my paranoid self was going to wear one (thereby leaving my mom without skull protection--a truly selfish deed). I should have let her wear it since my only fall was considered a "slump" at best, but she had a perfect day on the slopes. It was such a great day for skiing we didn't care about the forgotten passes left at home, the burned pork in the crock pot, and the fact that my dad accidentally missed a hearing.
After a short 55 minute flight home, we drove out to the coast with some friends to watch general conference in a house with an incredible view.
There were at times 9 different couples and four kids in the house, but I don't think it could have worked out better. Although I did forget my kite. We had a great run on the beach and the weather was beautiful--all us Oregonians were shocked at the appearance of this thing called The Sun.
