Family Fun in Ohio in the Middle of March

My dad had a stroke at the end of February, right before his 80th birthday.

I needed to go see him and help in any way I could.

So 7 of the kids and I piled into the van and drove for 2 days to go visit the grandparents and aunts and uncles and cousins. We stayed for almost 2 weeks.

My brother and sister and their families really made the time special for my kids.

 Kelsey kept our traditions even though we were far from home.

 

She made green eggs and ham – which Patrick enjoyed immensely!

And she also made green lemon squares. Yum!
