Spring Break, Family Time, and Martinis FTW


For the first time in many years I don’t have to worry about doing homework during Spring Break.


Instead, I get to spend time goofing around with my family.


Hosting a tea party (more on this soon).


And eating the kids’ Easter candy (thanks sister for playing Easter bunny because I got the kids nothing this year).


Actually, I think I’ll skip the candy and have a Pink Lilikoi Martini instead. It’s healthier.


Hope you all had a fabulous Easter!

Don’t forget to enter the Fresh Produce giveaway. It ends Wed April 11th at 9pm PST.

    What a wonderfully photogenic group.

    Also, I hope you were jesting about skipping the candy. Geez, woman.

    Happy (little late) Easter!

      If they had good chocolate I would be all over it but instead they had jelly beans and sour lemon candy. I’ll take the martini over that candy any day.

    I am not in school but was so happy to have a break from homework, my kids homework that is. We had the best time just seeing where the day took us. Your family is just beautiful, such sunny bright photos.

      I hired my husband to be the official photographer this year so we would have some pictures. But I did completely fail at getting the girls Easter baskets.
