Friday Five

1. I woke my kids up a little bit ago and told them we were going to hike, hit Costco, and then have lunch somewhere. They moaned and groaned about all of it, even lunch, which surprised me. They have a huge case of the lazies this week. I've indulged them almost every day. They're not thrilled that I'm making them hike today, but I'm not budging. It's too beautiful today to stay cooped up inside.

2. Why does the week of spring break seem to pass more quickly than regular weeks? This one has flown by. We still have a few days left though and I intend to milk every ounce of fun out of them!

3. This is the first spring break I can ever remember where the weather has been nice the whole week. It's not unusual to have snow and cold over spring break but it is definitely unusual to have warm temps for an entire week in March. I'm not complaining though. I've hiked in a tank top and capris several times this week. LOVE it!
(My friend and I hike the Incline yesterday. I'm completely addicted to that workout. I love it.)

4. I've been praying like crazy for a friend who had brain surgery on Wednesday. She just texted me a picture of herself up and walking around--amazing! I'm sooooo thankful that her surgery went well and that her initial pathology reports look good.

5. Sarah made those cake pops I mentioned the other day and they turned out so cute. I forgot to take a picture, but this is the tutorial she followed. They were a little too sweet for my taste, but everyone else loved them. I did however take a picture of our yarn eggs (we used embroidery floss) and I think they turned out really pretty!
Happy Friday, everyone!!!!

Oh! I love the yarn eggs!
Here's a silly question: Do you ever run into scary wildlife on your hikes? In your part of the country, I'd allow my fear of bears to hinder my hiking ambition. Just curious.

You did it! They look great. Wasn't popping the balloons fun? My girls' favorite part.

Mer, I think I would CRY buckets if it snowed during our Spring Break! So glad you had nice weather.

Those eggs are too cute!
I, too, am amazed at how great the weather has been. We were at 87 today. Can you believe that! Loving it!
