Isn't this girls' hair gorgeous, beautiful and coveted by me!

The finished product (the "pins" add to the look, don't you think?)!

Each safety pin is 10 stitches, Elyse wants you to guess how many stitches there are in this shawl.  The winner gets to take out all the safety pins and put them away.

A gift from a generous friend!  I put this together in two days.  Parts of it were pretty hard, but it is finished!  Dad helped a little.

I have run out of "new" puzzles (hint, hint).  Time to start repeating them!

I couldn't pass this one up...what do you think?

This is Zachary's spring break (not Elyse's though).  The four of us headed to the "Grand Rapids Public Museum."  It was a good day and a nice break from our routine.  The special display was the dinosaurs.  Zachary likes taking pictures, so we left him in charge of the camera.

Skinny, huh?




Elyse's knitting turned up in all sorts of places...

Elyse even polished my shoes...

What should we eat?
We even have school during spring break...

The next special display was "Legoland."


 We even took a spin on the carousel.  We aren't too old, are we?

I always wanted to ride one of these bikes...

Do you think we could pull this fire engine together?

Another thing we did over spring break was to have the grandsons for the night.  Zachary kept them hopping!  It was a good time.

We let Jaden have free reign of the camera.  I'll show you a "few" of the thousands of pictures he took.

Not Zachary's best, maybe it was the photographer.

Cool catch!
My favorite, by far!
