Spring is here, and we needed to get out of the house. I had a few checks to take to the bank, so I brought the whole family along. Its a little over a mile walk to the bank. The kids were not completely into the walk, but I found ways to entertain them.
And how did I entertain them? With a phone booth… Not that they really knew what it was.
I was invited to my goddaughter’s first communion. I would have brought family along with me, but the mass was at 7:30 am and I had stuff to do late the day before. So I left at 5am Sunday morning to drive to Jeff City. I don’t think they expected me to show up, but they were all grins!
Pheona and I.
Sean and I up to no good!
All the Godwin kids together!
After the mass, we went out to breakfast and then hung out at their house for a few hours.
Eventually it was time for me to head home. I went the long way enjoying the Missouri countryside!
I needed to get out of the house and Danelle needed some peace and quiet for her school work. So I packed up the kids and drove to Castlewood State Park. There, I wanted to hike a trail that overlooks the Meramec river. We did hike it for a short time, but the kids and flooding river didn’t let it happen quite the way I wanted.
The lower trail was impassable and the kids didn’t want to hike much more, so it was a short out and back. Lucky for Danelle, its a bit of a drive, giving her a 3 hour reprieve from all of us!
The kids participated in their last orchestra together until Sonora gets into high school. It was in the Webster Groves high school gym. The Niemeyer’s came out to listen to the kids. Forgot to record the concert, but had fun with friends!
What a super cold month! So cold in fact, there were pipes bursting all over town. One popped in my office building giving us some unexpected time off…
I tried to turn my driveway into an ice rink.
On a few of the warmer days, I got in some unicycle riding.
My parents came in town for Corvin’s Jazz concert. It was a pretty decent concert.
