Less hectic than 2012, but still nuts! We flew into Monterey on a Tuesday. Drove to Ventura the next day to see friends. Back to Monterey Saturday with a stop in Carpinteria for lunch with Robbie. Sunday up to Santa Cruz to celebrate Drew's graduation. Followed that with a night in Berkeley at Gerry & Kathy's. From there visited with Grandma Jo in Walnut Creek. Back to Monterey for 5 nights and then back home! Wish we could do this more than once a year. Truly!

Funny girl

During lunch the other day, Amelia was going on and on about something or other. (A fairly typical occurrence around these parts.) I was sitting next to Zoe at the kitchen island and she began to forcefully jab her thumb repeatedly into the countertop. She had her eyes fixed on her sister. I asked what she was doing. She answered quietly, without stopping, "Trying to make her stop." I laughed, whispered back that I wished that worked. If only there was such a button.

Easter 2012, a set on Flickr.

We've got photos from an egg hunt the kids attended here in New Bern and photos of the Spring Break Road Trip I took the kids on to visit family near Kansas City. Two days driving there with a stopover in Cookesville, TN, four days having a blast with Connie, Scott & Grace, then two days back home, stopping in Lexington, KY. We did Easter in MO and had fun at the KC Zoo with Aunt Marge and Don joining us. Poor Amelia got her left thumb slammed in the car door in southwest Virginia fairly early in the day and was a trooper for the rest of the ride home. As always, I am buoyed by a successful trip (now that a week has passed and I forget exactly how many times I screamed in the car.) :):):)
