Happy Easter

Ok I have to toot my own horn here for a second because it's post number 2 in less than a week! I'm pretty proud of that, especially since my life is usually pretty dull so a second blog means yeah I was doing something :) Easter for my family was celebrated on Saturday night due to Jason having to take Clay back home on Sunday. We decided to just have a small little family dinner, made our own Cafe Rio salad knock offs. As usual, down on the Stott/Swapp farm there are always new baby animals. This year there were the usual bunny rabbits but also 3 two week old lambs. Because the weather has been so horrible, and the corral full of mud, John brought the lambs up to the house so we could take turns feeding them. Have you ever had a heard of sheep wandering around your kitchen? My mom can now say she has. Here's a few pics of our day....

and then there was our little pre-teen who was so bored by our antics:
but after a bunch of chasing him around with the camera I at least got some smiles and genuine laughter :) (but man he was quick and hard to catch on film)

Happy Birthday to Me

So for Greg's birthday we dragged him out to the frozen mountains, but for mine I just wanted warmth! My mom and I planned a girls weekend (or week day since we were gone Tue-Thu) and headed down to Mesquite, NV. What's in Mesquite? Well the answer is not much...but at one of the hotels they do a great week day special where you can spend a relaxing day in their Spa and a hotel stay for pretty cheap. We stayed for two nights which gave us four spa treatments to split up. I was a greedy girl and added a third just for me, but then it was my birthday :) So after a day spent getting a pedicure, facial and massage I was ready to face the demons of everyday life. Really it was like heading on some tropical vacation, but only a five hour drive away. And we couldn't have asked for better weather, I even got myself a lovely sunburn. Actually, the last day we spent there it was so hot (at least by the pool) that we had to sip pina colada's just to stay cool (alcohol free of course ;-) ).
