Rainy Days...

We stayed in the cutest little cottage ever at  Chevy Chase Beach Cabins. Seriously, how cute is this? (see below)

Spring Break is over again and we are now looking forward to Master C.'s graduation from college in three weeks time.  (Gonzaga) How did that happen so fast??! We are so happy for him, great times!

I'll leave you with some fun pictures of the birds that we are finding in our yard right now. Lots of new faces (migratory birds) and the old well known ones as well. They always make me smile...
