Insta-Friday Spring Break edition

It's Friday! So let's take a look at the past week via Instagram.

It all started here, on Easter. It was a good day. Family, food, fun traditions, and best of all, remembering the greatest thing ever: being reconciled to God.

But then, Monday came and all the rooms and surfaces in my house looked like this. Which meant we coudn't leave on our spring break trip until e v e r y t h i n g was back in it's place. Well, nearly everything.

Next, we took the shortest road trip ever, but it still needed to start with Taco Bell. 'Cause of all the cleaning up, we sorta forgot to eat. Then we got on the road and everyone was hungry. This dude loves the Doritos tacos.

And after all the chaos of the weekend behind us, we all started to relax. It has been a Sabbath week. Together.

We even played board games. We never thought we'd get there, actually. We thought they'd be babies and then toddlers like forever. But now, they're legit school-aged children who play board games. I don't know when it happened. It just suddenly did. Seriously it's awesome. 

I even got to be Miss Scarlet. Naturally.

We went to a Mission also. My family members really dig the California Missions. Hey, I realized other people in other states don't sometimes know about the California Missions. If that's you, well there are 21 of them all along the coast of this great goldeny state, and they were where the Catholics tried to evangelize the Indians in the 1700s. And they are so, so beautiful.

Once in a while, I feel like my life is a postcard.

A really lovely one that you can't stop staring at.

And I feel so thankful.



  1. You do have very postcard like-pictures :) Your family is beautiful! :)
    I think I've been to a CA mission, but it was a long time ago, so long that I hardly remember. Looks like I need to plan a trip out to CA! :)
