Ohio is for Lovers

Last week I had an absolutely wonderful time in Ohio on my Spring Break! I wanted to bring Jason with me, but with finals this week, it was such a bad time to miss school, study time, and group project meetings.
Easter dinner--notice Spencer scowling at the potatos I made :) The little kids say I 'ruin' everything I make by adding vegetables or spices or weird ingredients, like red wine vinegar and cream cheese to mashed potatoes, but the older kids love it.

With all of mom's kids finally in school, we really got to play all day together. After I went through mom's boxes of maternity clothes, we did a little more shopping, had lovely lunches and pedicures...

...and went to a Presidential Lecture with Greg Mortenson, author of "Three Cups of Tea".

Its a very inspirational book that I finished that morning, just in time.

And my parents took me to see the touring Broadway cast of "Mary Poppins"! It was practically perfect! Darling, and 'Mrs. Banks' was my favorite.

We talked all week, and Mom told me what its like to be a Bishop's Wife, and I asked her every question I could think of about pregnancy, delivery, and being a mom. Labor & Delivery nurses are so very knowledgable. I told her that planning a baby is almost as fun as planning a wedding. Either way, what fun anticipation! Thanks for a super great week!
