Fabulous Paper Hats

I have been trying to get Brian to take me to a Waffle House for over 15 years now. He finally relented. I can't say that the waffles were amazing, but the service was great, and the kids got these fabulous paper hats.

Sure Cleans Up Well

We're currently down in Memphis, TN. Brian is interviewing for the position of Logistics Manager at the Memphis Jif plant. Of course, this is part of the J.M. Smucker family. In the picture below, you can see Brian heading out of the hotel for his interview. He sure cleans up well!

Tulips in Bloom

Our tulips are in bloom! Brian and I planted these bulbs last fall, and we've so enjoyed seeing them pop up over the last couple of weeks.

I just love the colors! This makes me so happy!
