Just so we don't forget these gems

On our early, early, early morning car ride to Michigan, Brinn had two requests:

1) Seaweed Salad
2) The book "Joy to the World" from the library.  Nothing says Easter like a book on Christmas carols.

We arrived to Berrien Springs and it was all of 40 degrees.  The girls ran to play outside, regardless of their short-sleeved shirts.  Mali came back in five minutes later.  We assumed it was for a coat.  No.  She really, really wanted water balloons.  When we turned her down, she pleaded her case for the sprinkler.  Where does she get such warm blood? 

Carrigan barely survived the fear that is the Ohio Turnpike's Rest Areas.  (In case you didn't know, their bathrooms have automatic flushes.  Terrifying to her!)  On the way home, she requested that soon we could go to her godparents' house (in Grand Rapids), but leave in the middle of the night and watch DVD's.  But, please, could we make sure that Ice Age was not one of those DVD's.  We'll get right on those requests as well.  Just after we serve up some seaweed salad.

Daniel always asks me if a bathroom has automatic flushers. If I say yes, his face hardens in an expression of stoic determination. He faces them bravely, but he doesn't like them. He has a similar reaction to the warm air hand dryers.

Seaweed salad sounds delicious!
