Happy Easter! Updated List 4/21/11 New Photos

Happy Easter everyone!

This year is flying by! In a month and a half our kids will be out of school for the summer and then before we know it, Christmas will be here again! I heard one of my girls telling a friend the other day that when you're a kid, it seems like it'll everything takes forever but when you're an adult it just flies by. How true!

I've been very lax about updating my blog. I keep telling myself to get it done and then something else comes up that keeps me from doing it.

Here are a few pictures from Spring Break (last month, I know!)

We finally got the wheel back for Harold a few weeks ago! It took about 6 months to get a new wheel made, but it's back and on Harold! We've only taken him up to the local cruise in, but will take him to the official "first" car show of the season for us. We had someone come out yesterday to take a look at Harold and see about making a new top for him. We have the pattern for it, but no one really wants to do it! And unfortunately, you can't just go buy a new one. The smaller Chevy's you can, but not for the FB50.

I've also been taking some pictures of the moon through the telescope that I got for Christmas. I'm not very good at it, but it's a lot of fun. I'm waiting on a stronger lens to come so that I can hopefully get a better look at Saturn and get some photos of it. Some of these are night shots and some are morning shots (around 8 am).

10mm lens. Awesome to see the craters!
