Happy Easter!

Zack getting ready to brave the Easter storm! That OC sun is looking pretty sweet about now!

Since Josh and the kids had a four-day weekend for Easter we decided to rent a car and hit some of the sites in England. The pictures do not come anywhere close to showing how cold it was. We drove through wind, rain, sleet, hail and snow! We saw some beautiful places... but probably didn't enjoy them as much as we could have... you know like if it were 40 degrees instead of negative a million!
In front of the Roman Baths and the Bath Cathedral.

Wells, England (England's smallest city)

Tintagel, England (where the legend of King Arthur began)

Ruins of King Arthur's castle... you can't see it... but it was so windy the girls' hair was standing up on end and Brooklyn's glasses kept falling off!

When in the car, Brooklyn doesn't have a chance... both Makenna and Zackary get car sick... a lot! We invest in ziplocks... but unfortunately sometimes we don't make it! This is our little clean up after Makenna got sick... she soaked her own clothes and some of Brooklyn's clothes and hair with throw up... yuck!

Wild miniature ponies in Dartmoor National Forest.

Salisbury Cathedral

Girls at Windsor Castle

Oooooh eeeee oooooh.... uuuuoooooh ummmmm!

This guard stayed warm with that hat on!

Out of the mouths of babes!

Here are a couple thoughts provided by the girls this week:

Makenna said... on our way home from church on a rainy, blustery day, "Hey I think America needs to teach London how to put the sun out!"

And Brooklyn (a little background... Josh was working late last week so we kept postponing Family Home Evening... and ended up skipping it)... "Are we having Family Home Evening tonight?" (On Saturday) Mom... "No, we'll have it on Monday" Brooklyn... "Well we didn't have it all week, I hope you and Dad repent!"
