For Sale

I put our house on the market this week in hopes of moving to Dallas this summer.  I love the way the photos of the house turned out.  The listing is here.  Our house will never be this clean again!

Spring Break-Part Two

For part two of our spring break we flew from Minneapolis to New Orleans for Mardi Gras.  I think if someone had ended up with our luggage by mistake they would have wondered what on earth we were up to-snow pants, gloves, snow boarding helmet, ball gown, elbow length gloves, dresses and shoes for a luncheon, etc..etc...

Our friend Britton was king of the Hermes crew so we were invited to many fun events.  Here is a photo of Britton and Sheila at a luncheon at Antoines.  Yum!

A parade watching party at the Elms mansion.  It was nice to be able to run in for food and drinks in between parades.

Sweet Shelby

On Saturday we went to the home of one of our neighbor's parents.  They live on St. Charles so we had a perfect parade watching spot.  Here is Mignon giving K some bead catching tips and Liza looking like a pro.

I'm no dummy I stayed on the balcony with Mignon's father and watched the parade.

The kids took a break between parades to come up and sort out their beads.  Who would not want to hang out in this gorgeous home???

The end!

Spring Break-Part One

Part one of our spring break involved a whole lot of cold!  Complete with sub zero temperatures, polar bears, sledding, snowboarding, snowshoeing and ice skating.  Brrrrr!!!!  We stopped at Starbucks for hot chocolate at least three times a day.

A visit to the zoo-this polar bear and a wolf were the only animals who were out

Karina was trying to get sweet Jackie to push her back up the hill


Snowshoeing-harder than it looks!

An attempt at ice skating one evening with cousins Becky and Jackie but the rink had not been cleared so we ended up at Caribou for hot chocolate instead
