Hi, I'm in Battle Ground.

There's lots of cows here.

And horses.

In fact, yesterday my mom and I saw a "stray" horse running around the neighborhood.

But, fear not, I am really not that far away from civilization.

The kids and I decided to spend spring break at my mom's, which is on a good day about a 4 hour drive from my neck of the state.  This is convenient because all of my other family and many friends live in the area as well.  Battle Ground, Vancouver, Camas, Portland.

We have been Pacific Northwest-world travelers for sure. 

And what a fun time we have had.  I am so glad I decided to brave a week alone with the kids.

They have been super troopers, moving with me from place to place, visit to visit. 

The weather quite frankly sucked (it was even trying to SNOW today!).  But the company was fabulous so I will not complain for another moment.

The only thing I did not accomplish this week was blog reading. 

We come home Friday.  I am SURE daddy has kept the place spotless in our absence.  :) 

Let the catching up begin (after of course my hair appointment and massage and pedicure and anything else I can think of to fill up my "me" Saturday)!  :) 

Oh - and did I mention my "little" guy will be TWO on Sunday.  Hopefully I will get a post up for him, or at least a picture!

ooh, a "ME" saturday. That sounds nice. And I loved your sarcastic comment about your husband keeping your house spotless while you were gone, haha. What a joke, right! That would be the day when my husband actually keeps the house clean. I don't think he even knows HOW :)
