Last week we had an 80 degree day. We took the kids for a drive to the lake near our house. The ice still isn't quite off the lake yet and with the winds and warm weather the ice was pushed onto shore. It was really fun for the girls to play with some ice while enjoying the warm breeze on their faces.

Back in USA

Well, we made it back to the USA and are now settled back into MN life. It is so nice not having our picture taken every time we go out of our house. We are no longer celebrities. LOL The girls have adjusted very well and are loving all of the freedom they have outdoors. The weather has finally turned into Spring and we have been enjoying some mid-60 degree days. It should be a fun Spring/Summer. We have also been spending a lot of time at my in-laws house. They live 1/4 mile from our house and the girls LOVE spending time with them (as do I).

Cliff purchased a new toy and it was delivered and waiting for us when we got home. He LOVES it and has been on it every day. The girls think it is a blast to buckle in and go for a "Prowler" ride with Daddy. We even packed a picnic the other day and headed way out on our land and had a great time eating our lunch outdoors in the beautiful sunshine. Then we walked around and let the girls explore. Great day.

We also had a very nice Easter with family. The girls looked for eggs and their basket at Grandma's plus the Easter Bunny left some goodies at our house. The girls thought it was great to eat so much candy. They handled it better than I thought they would. I don't let them have much candy and figured they would have a crazy sugar high. They did spend a lot of time outdoors that day, so they burned off a lot of their sugar energy. :)

I will have to post pictures later. For some reason it isn't working right now.
