I don't want to attack the large pile of laundry and the messy house just quite yet. If I clean everything up now, I'll have to do it all again on Thursday before Mom and Dad arrive. We took a bike ride to the local river to check the cherry blossoms and it looks like they'll be in their prime when Mom and Dad are here. L managed to kick his right sneaker into the river when kicking a stone into the water. J and M managed to fish it out with a stick before it floated away. N was grumpy because we didn't let her ride her own bike, but she's still alive and well so I think we made the right decision.
