It's been awhile...

What a crazy month.  I never intended for a month-long gap in blogging, but life got in the way. :)   Here are some photos to show some of the things I've been up to...

At the beginning of March, our little family took a trip to Arizona.  We visited with my husband's aunt & uncle for a few days.  Then my California immediate family flew in for a weekend of visiting.  They liked having to fly only an hour to visit instead of 5 hours across the country.  The break was much needed and of course, the Arizona weather never failed to provide a sunny day.  In a Murphy's Law turn of events, a tornado came through our home state while we were gone.  Thankfully, the storm missed our city.  It was a bit surreal to call our next door neighbors and ask if we still had a house.

Margarita.ville.  Mmmm, I had a delicious Margarita. Don't worry, KB had milk. 

KB's first experience with an in-ground splash fountain.  It took all my strength to keep her from running into the water! 

And of course, March 17th always brings lots of opportunities to dance a jig.  KB came with me to a performance at a retirement home.  She unknowingly became the star of the show. :) 

Our city's annual Irish festival had record attendance, thanks to record warm temperatures.  My hubby was a great sport, non only in wearing green, but in keeping KB from running in the mud.  She smiled and waved at me while I was dancing.  Melted my heart! :)


I couldn't resist buying this Irish bow for her collection.

I'm hoping things will slow down now.  As a native Californian, I absolutely LOVE the abnormally warm weather that has come to my area. The flip-flops have come out earlier than in years' past.  Best of all, it's nice not to have to bundle up a toddler just to get out the door.  Probably a year from now Mother Nature will have payback, and I'll read these sentences while shaking my fist.

In a belated tribute to St. Patrick's Day, and the fact that the Muppe.ts movie comes out on DVD today, enjoy this video and raise a glass!
