Spring break


This year instead of our annual School’s out trip, we went on a Spring Break trip with friends down to Pensacola, Fl. The weather was a little bit good and a little bit bad. But fun was had, dancing, bananagrams, yummy meals and always lots of laughs. One of the nice days here.

Beach time was sporadic, at best, as it was a bit chilly and windy a few days. But still great to just sit and to fish, of course.
