March Madness

March went by fairly quick - A vacation in the middle of the month will do that. The trip to Atlanta was probably the best family vacation since the trip out east two years ago. The weather was warm and attractions were awesome. We will be going back. The rest of March Break was laid back - though it did cool down, so we didn't do much outside.

The last week of March warmed up considerably so we were able to fire up the BBQ a few times during the week and enjoy some chicken and hamburgers. Tina said the BBQ fired up on the second push of the ignition switch - that is a testament to the quality of Broil King Barbecues - the BBQ will be 7 years old this summer. It needs a good cleaning and a tightening of the bolts, but other than that, it works like a charm.

The bulbs and perennials are pushing their way through. Adam spent an afternoon trimming the plants while Jeremy played. It's amazing how a little warmth and sun changes the flowerbeds. The lawn is in desperate need of an overhaul - something that Adam will be looking into very soon.
