So Clint and Dawn went home, and life continued. Of course, all was not mundane. Seriously, can anything truly be “mundane” during Spring Break?
Okay…before you get strange images of two thirty-somethings dragging their two small children to Fort Lauderdale or Palm Springs, let me reassure you that’s not the kind of Spring Break I’m talking about.
No, it was far more mundane. It was Harry’s Break, and our original plan was to just have him go visit Alissa’s parents for a few days, however, the children’s protests quickly led to Annie going as well. We weren’t sure how this would work out, but the kids had a blast doing some spring planting of all things. Apparently, “farmer” is encroaching on the territory of “Obi Wan Kenobi” as his career of choice.
So what would Alissa and I do with two kid-free evenings? Well, I worked on the first night. The second night, we went to get my iPad 3 from The Apple Store before going to dinner. Of course, we can’t do anything simply, particularly a major change in our household technology. So as we were sitting in The Macaroni Grill, Alissa decided to try out the camera on her iPad 2. She took a slightly grainy, slightly blurry picture of me. Then she tried my 3 and took the same picture.
So, here’s my advice to people contemplating getting an iPad. If the camera is a big deal for you, either get the 3 outright. If you do still end up getting the 2, all is not lost. Just don’t do a side by side comparison of the same picture taken by both devices. There really is a visible difference.
So, after dinner, it was back to Apple to buy a 3. Alissa returned the 2 to Best Buy the next day, and we were all set.
The next day, I had to work and Alissa went over to fetch the kids and bring them back for Easter. Easter was a gorgeous day, and after church, Alissa’s brother and sister-in-law hosted the family Easter Dinner and celebration of Alissa’s birthday. A second celebration with friends, featured the infamous Red Velvet Cake.
Well, I’m beat, so I’ll stop here, but stay tuned for the end of tax season and spelling.
