Spring Break....



Hello Friends!
It's a happy week here because of Spring Break! The first thing we have planned is a night at the Franklin in Philadelphia to see the Star Wars exhibit. Jake has been into Star Wars since he was 3 and we let him watch the boxed set of the first three movies (actually 4,5,6). Alex has been playing with Star Wars toys practically since he left the womb. My mother in law has saved all of my husbands extensive original Star Wars toys and my kids have been playing with them for years. It's funny to see how everything comes back in time. My kids are now on a huge Indiana Jones kick. We bought all of the movies on DVD and they have been using their allowance to buy LEGO sets depicting different scenes from the movies. I'm not much of a science fiction kind of gal but I do enjoy the Star Wars movies and it's nice for us to have something in common.
Well, I need to get going. I'm visiting my before mentioned Grandmother today with my kids, mom, sister and nephew....safety in numbers:)
Real quick I wanted to share with you my newest addition to my ever growing art collection. I bought this Botero reproduction off of Ebay the other day. Isn't she the funniest thing? I'm not usually into repro's but since I'm pretty sure I'll never be in a position to own a real Botero I though this was ok. I think I'm going to have to buy a Botero Mona Lisa next. I just love all of his pudgy little people!
Ok, I'm going already!!! Have a great day!

Sounds like a fun spring break, all we have managed are three days in a row at the park, but they are happy! fun to find things in common with little boys isn't it?

hmmmmm, he paints huge women, yet they have tiny little perkies, something doesn't seem right (as seen in his nudes).
WE LOVE STAR WARS ALSO! Did you know they have Jedi Training down in Orlando now? We collect the Galactic Heroes, even Ally is into them. I was thinking about doing the FI star wars event, let me know how it is.
