"We Are A Happy Family"

Millie sings "We are A Happy Family" like 500 times a day!
April has already brought us a lot of adventures and it's only just begun. The best part is I found out both my sisters are going to come and visit us in May!!! HURRAY!!! I can't wait.
It's been so nice having Brady home the last few weeks, we are really going to miss him! School starts back up tomorrow and his Environmental Conference is also tomorrow. I am so excited for him and I can't wait to see all his hard work come together.
Here are some random pictures of the past few weeks...
We woke up last week to SNOW! It's the 1st snow storm we have seen since we've been here. It didn't stick around, but it was fun while it lasted.

I'm sure you all know by now that Millie LOVES the backyardigans! Her sweet Nana sent her this little lunch box and she uses it to tot around all her favorite books. We can't go anywhere without it. Thanks Nancy for all the fun gifts!


Having fun in the sun.


This past Friday we decided to rent a car and take a day trip to see Stonehenge. It was pretty cool to see and Millie loved "the rocks". Stonehenge is one of those mysteries of life. They aren't 100% sure what it was used for and they have no idea how 5,ooo years ago the people were able to get these stones from Wales and get them to stay standing up right. Most the stones weigh as much as 7 adult male elephants! Pretty Cool.


There were yellow flower fields all over the place! It was so beautiful and they seemed to go on and on.
"The Magic Roundabout"


Take a good look at the sign...It's a bunch of roundabouts inside a roundabout. It was quite possible the scariest moment of my life. Brady kept us a life and we some how made it through although we had no idea what the heck was going on!


A cute little town in the Cotswold district. Millie loved all the ducks and bridges.

Two summers ago Ben and I visited that exact same little town and have photos on those bridges- I think it is called Burton on the Water or something? It was a hot summer day and the whole town was out playing in the river. I love all the pics!

Love the cute pictures too. I'm sure you guys loved the snow (since it was the only snow you've seen for awhile). I however, am ready for it to move on.

Pretty meadow picture! Did you see that stupid "wood hednge" thing right by there? Maybe it's not there anymore. It was some sort of mock the stone hednge thing. I don't know...everyone was walking all over wood stump things...anyhoo...pretty meadow.

We are planning a trip in August and wondered if I could pick your brain a little. Mainly about which region you stayed in and your absolute favorites! Its so fun to see your travels. It looks like other then school, your having the time of your lives. :)
