March: an overview

Ok so I know it’s been over a month since I’ve posted any blogs. For some reason I’ve gotten out of the writing habit, this includes leaving my journal in the car for a month as well untouched. Does anyone else run into these seasons when  routines need a break? Anyways.

I thought I’d start April with a overview of March because of course I still took pictures and planned on blogging about it all. I will give a the short-version in this post, like an appetizer, then give you the main course later is several other posts with details and more pictures.

Even though the blog was quiet there were still plenty of adventures:

March 11-14th For Luke’s birthday I made him new favorite dinner and of course the Irish Cinnamon rolls. Then over the weekend we explored Rochester’s Museum and Science Center and  a special traveling display on the work of Di Vinci. We also tried out a birthday gift: an expansion to one of Luke’s favorite games.

March 21st- We went to a Q and A meeting in Rochester for beginners to Orienteering with the Rochester Orienteering Club; which we have joined after attending the Winterfest a few months ago.
