I think Spring Break around us was a few weeks ago. Growing up I never did the things my friends did. A lot of my friends had an annual spot their families would go to each Spring Break. Growing up as a coaches daughter, my dad was always in season. He was a men’s basketball and track and field coach for 20+ years.
One Spring Break, my sophomore year of highschool was different though. My dad was recruiting someone from LA, so he thought that when she committed to the school, we would fly out there. We stayed with her family, and now fast forward ten years, our families are super close! That year I visited LA for the first time. I saw the Hollywood sign, the star walk thing downtown Hollywood, and most importantly, Disneyland! The girl that we went out to see actually worked at Disneyland, so her family was able to get us tickets. The one downside was that earlier that winter I had foot surgery, so I was walking around in a boot. Regardless of that, it was so amazing! That’s my favorite Spring Break trip so far. One day I would like to start a Spring Break tradition with kids. Even something nearby or an activity like the Zoo. Something that we can make a tradition in doing every Spring Break! The picture is a picture of my parents and me at one of the beaches we visited. I can’t believe this was ten years ago!
Alec talks about this favorite Spring Break trip being the following:
“My senior year when I went to Florida for Spring Break. It was the first time I remember going to the beach, I went when I was really young. We went to Clearwater where lots of people from my high school go, so it was fun getting to hang out with friends while I was there as well.”
I remember him talking about another time that he and his family went to Indianapolis for a Pacers basketball game for Spring Break too.
The weather has been simply perfect the past few days so Brie and I spent a lot of our weekend outdoors working on our garden. The peony bushes around our house are in full bloom right now and helps the garden seem even more lush and vibrant than usual.
It was a beautiful day yesterday so Mike and I took advantage of the weather and enjoyed a hike through our neighbordhood and local glen! Whenever we have the chance we always enjoy spending time outdoors. This is something we hope to share
We knew going into this weekend that we would be busy. Saturday we drove about an hour and a half to meet Alec's parent's for lunch. We didn't drive all the way to his hometown, but we met in a bigger city for a few hours. We try to see his side at least
