If you ever go to Williamsburg, stop off in Lightfoot and have a bite. Terrific pork, and the fries and hush puppies are excellent, too!

Oh, sorry! :)
The rain has made our grass such a beautiful shade of green, and the flowers are coming along. Here is a great shot of the flowers at Busch Gardens...I took this Easter Sunday.
Love the red and purple combination! My two favorite colors.

Here's one last shot of the Grand Strand:
I have been remiss in answering the trivia question we won with the other night at Liberty's. The question: put in order the following events--debut of Saturday Night Live, killing of 10 Israeli Olympics athletes, Elvis gets inducted into the Army, and Helen Keller dies. The answer:
1) Elvis is inducted into the Army (1958)
2) Helen Keller dies (1968)
3) Killing of 10 Israeli Olympic athletes (1972)
4) Saturday Night Live debuts (1975)
I still can't believe we won first place!
And as the sun sets on another Spring Break...
...we look forward to a rapid close to the school year and are greatly anticipating summer vacation!

We drove to Williamsburg, Virginia last night and spent a fun evening watching bad movies on cable...My Cousin Vinny (not too bad), Happy Gilmore (kind of bad), and Tommy Boy (one of Eric's favorites). This morning we went to Busch Gardens--this one has a European theme to the park. JJ and Eric enjoyed the roller coasters, and Nicky and I rode some of the smaller but still fun rides. They are affiliated with Sesame Place, and have a brand new area for the wee ones. I took a picture of my not-so-wee ones with an old favorite, Grover.
We left a bit early and came home. We are happy to be back and ready to relax tomorrow!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter Sunday!

The inside is clean, too, which is why I can close it!
I love being able to see my knick knacks again. The doll on the file cabinet is made from a bingo fabric. I bought it for my mom years ago as a lucky charm for her near-nightly bingo games. (I don't think it worked well as a good luck charm, but she sure is cute.)
We're on Spring Break right now, and are headed out tomorrow morning early for North Carolina to visit Duke University, followed by Clemson University in South Carolina, and then a few days R&R in Myrtle Beach. I hope to update daily with pictures as we travel.
I'm looking forward to the break!

The Humane Society here also doubles as a kennel for boarding, only for dogs who were adopted from the Humane Society. This is the creek for which the kennel is named:

The Governor is on the right, and the Secretary on the left.
I don't recognize the book, and Eric doesn't remember the title. But how cool to be a witness to such an interesting storytime!
