Jumping into Spring! {Scrappin' Mojo Blog Prompt}

My husband has odd hours that he works. For example. One week he may work Monday/Wednesday & Friday (all 24 hour shifts) and have off Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday. The next week he may have off Sunday/Monday/Tuesday and work Thursday/ Saturday... it's never the same, ever. My girls are in Nursery school, M/W/F and sometimes it coordinates just right so that We're ALL HOME at the same time on a week day and this gives us lots of opportunities for ROAD TRIPS!!!

Road Trips really do signify the onset of spring for us. We're happiest when we jump in the car, start driving in any direction and just drive until we find something fun to do!
A couple of weeks ago we took off driving west and wound up in Jim Thorpe, PA ( OMG it's the ASPEN OF the East.. It is GORGEOUS!) We drove along the mountains and found a quaint little place to eat while we gazed out over the mountains.

We were here in Early Spring when there was still snow on the ground and the falls were still frozen. The area is beautiful in ALL seasons.

I thought of you on our trip to the beach. Lots of Lewis and Clark stuff we explored, plus at Cape Dissapointment, the WWII gun thingys.....next to the light house. I guess I should have paid attention better. :) The cement bunk houses were still there. Amazing place.

How awsome, Gabz!!! Those are such beautiful sights! You reminded me of my own childhood. That's how my parents were, we were out exploring all the time!
Your girls will have such AWSOME memories! and lots of scrapbooks to remember even better!
BTW, I think I fixed my blog, so maybe now you can actually say hi!

Wow, I've never seen frozen falls before!! How cool - Julius LOVES to hop in the car and just drive, I don't mind it usually if I know where we are headed....I like a game plan personally but he is very much like, let's just drive!

Looks like it was a great day for site-seeing though!! Can't wait to head back east, I love the east!!!
