last week there was a first for my blog in nearly 3 years posting, there was no post for March 23rd created!! (I do apologize) The kids started Spring break on Friday the 22nd and for it we planned a getaway. We went to Kansas city.( It was inspired by Courtney from A Byers guide) We left after all the packing was done on Friday evening at 5:30 and drove for 3 hours to Des Moines , Iowa (there were food and bathroom breaks along the way ) we arrived at the hotel we booked for the night at 9:20 and got settled in . The next morning the kids went swimming in the pool and had great fun as always. They are little fish! We checked out at 11:00 and had lunch at Bennigan’s Irish style Restaurant. We stopped at dunkin donuts for some coffee and took interstate 35 south . It was a pretty drive with rolling hills and nature at its best. Another thing was that there was no snow south of Des Moines , it was a novelty for us! It is a 3 hour drive also from Des Moines to Kansas City and with stops we arrived at our hotel at about 5pm. We stayed at homewood suites by Hilton next to the Kansas City Speedway. This is on the west suburbs of the city.
I will do a part 2 post on our trip later.
The kids are back to school on Monday and before we know it it will be summer! We are planning a low key weekend .

Good morning Ladies!! Happy ST. Patrick’s day to you (Beannachtaína lá Féile Pádraig oraibh!) This is the Gaelic greeting! It is pronounced Bann-ock-tee na law fail-eh paw-rig or-iv! There is my lesson for the day, hehe.
We celebrated our Liam’s 6th birthday yesterday! It was an early celebration , his is not for another week but it worked better for extended family . He is such an active and outdoorsy boy and knows how to get , dirty , or wet when outside! He is his own little character!
We have started getting rain here! the temps are rising and its supposed to reach 60f later this week. I will stop short of saying winter is over because it is only 6 years since we got a foot of snow May 8th! The kids start a week of Spring break on Friday and we are going on a trip for a few days from friday until Tuesday! More on that next week !

Good morning Ladies! I hope your weekend is off to a good start. It is wait and see for us, It is 7:30 am and we are awaiting 6 to 12 inches of snow between now and tomorrow. I am beginning to sound repetitive now I know! The joys of Minnesota! We got above freezing yesterday(33f) for the first time since February 4th!
Last Saturday after posting we all went to a sledding hill close by. There were teething problems with the sleds at first because of the types we have but eventually were able to get speed up. It was good time together in the outdoors!
On wednesday we celebrated the start of Lent with Ash wedneday. It is a day of fasting with no snacks between meals! In the evening we went to church , but had the soup supper before hand where parishoners bring a meatless soup to share. There were 28 in total, I did not have time to prepare a dish myself this year. Fridays in Lent are also a fasting day.
This weekend is low key , I think! I am ok with that and can get stuff done in the house , also family fun time with some games .

Good morning Ladies ! We are finally into March , the month when Spring starts here in The United States but here where I live we are still in the depths of Winter .We had another 3 inches of snow last night . We ended up with a record February snowfall of 39 inches ! I am ready to be done and start seeing signs of Spring but I will have to be Patient!
Last night was family fun night at the kids school where they get to play games , do face painting and just have fun! It is also a time for the parents to socialize and meet in some cases. I had a bereavement in my family last weekend. A second cousin of mine , from My Dad’s generation passed away after suffering a stroke a few years ago. He was the nicest man you could ever meet and so generous. May he rest in the peace of God.
This week we start Lent in our church , where we are encouraged to fast and make sacrafices in solidarity with Jesus Christ when he spent 40 days and 40 nights in the desert fasting.
