Easter trip to South Carolina

Over the Easter weekend we drove 9 hours to Florence SC to visit Luke. Danielle and Ben sharing headphones, they were watching movies on a laptop.

Friday night we played miniature golf as well as rode go-carts, two of our family favorite activities.

Photo above, the crew waiting their turn for the "slower" cars, below, the kids in the fast cars. Dan and I are in cars too.

Saturday we drove to Myrtle Beach, it was 92 that day. Below is Luke and his girlfriend Paige.

Our very non traditional Easter dinner, we grilled hotdogs and hamburgers and had pasta salad.
Group photo before our drive home, this is also the new wallpaper on my computer!

Kitchen Update

I spent all of last week painting my kitchen, the ceiling included which took the entire gallon of paint over two coats. The soffit was stencilled a nice grape vine with pink and blue flowers on white walls. I really like it but it's been there for over 15 years, I wanted more color.

Here's my new wall color, notice the light? I had Dan install 5 soffit lights. We also replaced the the 2 light fixtures on the ceiling.

The new light fixture that hangs over the kitchen table.

The new yellow wall, there also used to be a blue wavy stencil along the floor molding. I still need another coat of white paint there, I love that blue painters tape.

Since I have retired (quit) from my job as a Swim Lesson Manager just about one year ago, I have repainted 3 bedrooms, one bathroom, the wall below the chair rail in the dining room, the trim in the foyer, it matches the runner better and the kitchen. There as still a few more rooms to repaint, I wonder if Dan would like pink walls in our bedroom?

I took a break from my sewing machine, I think I have a pinched nerve by my right shoulder blade, you know "that" spot when you sew too long? It didn't hurt when I was painting, Advil seems to help, it is much better today.

Thursday - Sunday, I will be chaperoning, (is that a word?) Danielle's high school choir on their trip to Toronto, Canada. They have a wonderful itinerary planned, filled with touring as well as singing. Thursday morning we need to at school by 4:30am :-( I am so not a morning person.

Tonight is Danielle's Junior Prom. Yesterday after school she and her friend Heather had their nails done as well as a pedicure. This afternoon I took Danielle to get her hair done. I'll post photos later.
