Fixing Clothes....

I hate fixing things but I have this great pair of pants that has this cute button on the back pocket.
However, the button got stuck on a metal chair and got pulled off.
Although I could not salvage the button because it was one of those ones like you have a a pair of jeans, I was able to find a substitute at the fabric store and voila.....the pocket is now fixed for less than $2 (plus I have 4 more buttons in the package).

Chihuly Glass Exhibit

The kids had the day off school so I took a day of vacation and headed to the Desert Botanical Garden's Chihuly Glass Exhibit. There are a lot of photos in this post so I will only comment on a few of them. ;)

Kid's & I in front of the beluga sculptures.

We also visited the butterfly pavilion. We saw tons of butterflies.
Simon was lucky enough to get a butterfly to land on him......
as did Hannah. Her's almost blended in with the flowers on her shirt.
A photo in the pavilion.
Crazy kids....

I love these colors!
Mexican hat....
A great day. I am hoping to also catch the exhibit at night when the glass is all lit up!

Happy Easter Week!

Simon needed a bigger bike, so earlier this week, we got him one with "pegs".
His first ride on the new bike.
On Wednesday night we dyed eggs. We also used my family tradition about cracking Easter eggs. We crack them on each other's heads. Strange but it works for us!!
I spent Easter day with Dad & Linda. Gorgeous Arizona weather.
Dad enjoying a glass of wine after the potluck.
The Easter Bunny came at my house so after we got home....the kids hunted for their eggs. They were happy with their visit from the bunny.
I have also been working on the "Lady Sweater" and am about 3 inches from finishing the body.
Maybe another week until it is done depending on how much knitting I get done in the coming week!
