Happy Happy Spring Break

Hello, Friends!  It's Friday and time for Friday's Fave Fives.  This week Willow's Week is featuring the Best of Spring Break.

1. A visit from our PAL (PAL are her initials. Perfect, yes?) .  Oh, and her parents.  Our son and his family live a seven hour drive from us. They're the closest of our children, so it was a wonderful spring break gift for them to spend four days with us.  For the first time ever, our teacher daughter-in-law had the same spring break schedule as The Professor.  PAL visits are the Best!

2. On Monday, we did a book marathon.  Two libraries and Five used book stores.  Our family might love books. A Lot.

3.  Tuesday morning was reserved for yet another book store visit.  Our city has the cutest independent book store.  Mrs. Figg's Bookworm.  It's the best!

4.  We had promised PAL a trip to the beach, so Tuesday afternoon we drove to Ventura's Marina Park.  Yes, our grandgirl is a beach baby!  She inherited the Best from her Meema and Bapa!

5.  My week was completed with a visit with my brother.  (And this is why I am posting my Fave Fives a bit late this week.)  We live almost 1,000 miles apart, so we don't see each other much.  Today he was in the Los Angeles area for work, so we drove down to spend a few hours with him.  Brothers are the Best, too!

What were your Bests this week?

Oh my! An early Spring Break!! Another blogger was talking about Spring break already. Ours isn't until Easter week thank God because hopefully by then the rest of this white stuff will be entirely gone...the rain today is helping :)

PAL is a super cutie!! how special that you got to have them for the week and enjoy books and beaches.

YAY for visits with siblings too.

I hope you have a very relaxing weekend.

Sounds like a wonderful week with all the visits. I'm glad you enjoyed it all. PAL is definitely a cutie. Must be hard when they all go home though.

How lovely to have your PAL and her folks visit! And how wonderful that everyone likes books! And beaches! So nice when spring breaks coordinate. Glad you got to visit your brother, too!

You had a great week indeed. Books and family are the best. The book marathon day would be my cup of tea;)

I just love seeing photos of PAL. She's really growing. One thing I find enchanting about little children is how they pose their hands when standing still. It's just so sweet. Glad you had a nice break with your family. Hugs. Nancy
