Easter / Spring Photos

I never get these done before Easter it seems.

Easter morning it was just the 3 of us, so after checking out our baskets, we headed out to take some pictures.

I think this is our favorite.

Tax Return Investment

Out with the old...
In with the new. After 3 years of the old mower messing up more than working, and no big summer trip to worry about, I decided to give in and spend the bucks to hopefully not have to worry about lawn mower issues again for another decade.

Road Trip Spring Break

On our way to Branson for a few days.  Dogs stay free so Malaki is going with.

After finding the hotel and checking in, we drove up and down the strip and decided to eat at Pasghetti's.

The inside of the the restaurant looked like an Italian village.  It was pretty neat.

But I guess you pay for the ambience, not the actual food.
Canyon and Sahara had the special: Pasghetti and meatball.

I had the chopped Italian salad.  Basically it was $13 for iceberg lettuce. :/  Good thing they had breadsticks or I would have been hungry.

We had 2 very windy and warm (72) days and one very windy and cold (40) day.

La Quinta Inn pool and hot tub.

In the room and Canyon is actually playing games on the iphone.  Usually its just videos he is interested in, but he played this game for a long time.

Continental breakfast at the hotel and lunch at Fuddruckers.
Here I got a grilled chicken salad.  This one was awesome and I took leftovers back to the hotel that we all shared with our hotel breakfast the next morning.

Grand Village shopping.  This place was so cute.  It looked like a little village too with each shop in a different house.

Oh look!  We found McQueen and Mater!

Canyon in the tilted room rolling the ball 'upward' at the Ripley's Believe It Or Not Museum.

Loved this!!  Went through the spinning room several times.  Jogged through it too.  The faster you go, the more off balance you become.  It was so much fun!

Branson Landing for shopping and pretzel bites at Auntie Anne's.

On the way home we stopped at Arkansas' Grand Canyon.  It was so windy and so cold!

Back home.
That was quick!

Dentist Dilemma

Oh poor Canyon. Had his dentist appt today and finally got the news we have been putting off for the last 4 years. He only lost 6 baby teeth on his own, and 2 were pulled. All the rest of his baby teeth will need to be pulled now. They plan to put him under and do it all at once. His consultation will be April 4th and we will probably schedule for summer. He will be down to 6 teeth on top and 2 on the bottom (plus a couple bottom molars that have grown in 'off' places. We were really hoping he would eventually lose these babies, but the only one that has been loose at all ended up breaking off at gum level. So what's left of it needs to be dug out too. Poor kid!

Transplanting day

Canyon's job is to get all of the stones out of the tops to save.
They haven't been transplanted in a decade. Can you tell?
Oh no! I wasn't watching and Canyon ripped all the leaves and stems away to get to the stones!!
I did my best with this one, we'll see how it does.
