Family Time

“It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you’ve got it, you want—oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!”

~Mark Twain

We just spent ten, fun filled days with my in-laws Ward and Wendy. Although the weather wasn’t the best (Nova Scotia springs are quite wet), we managed to spend some quality time together, which was much needed.

Rainy days meant puzzle time and considering Ellinor and Honey, all of our puzzles are missing at least one piece…not very satisfying.

Soren discovered his love for dominos and playing Chicken Foot.

Papa Ward was able to watch Soren play hockey, which made him very proud.

Ward and Wendy also got a tour of the shipyard and we visited the maritime museum.

Ahoy! We are a proud maritime family.

Knowing most things were closed on Good Friday, we still headed out to Lunenburg, determined to see the sights, eat lobster rolls and seafood chowder.

Our time together culminated with egg dying and Easter festivities.

Honey…don’t take my egg!!!!

No more lost eggs now that we have a dog. Honey was skilled at egg hunting, ultimately finding the last and almost forgotten egg.

It’s right there dummies.

We even got a picture of Ward and Wendy with the kids before Ellinor decided to run off and play.

The weather finally cooperated, which meant the kids spent most of the day playing outside, lounging on the deck and enjoying their last full day with Papa and Mema.

I took a coat-free walk with Honey and glimpsed a small sign of spring. A bit of hope as we begin a very rainy week.

Happy Easter!
