Mirthful Monday

Alright, folks.  Not only is a Monday here but it was extremely windy last night (read: no sleep!), two kids have colds, we just finished Spring Break, and the weather is THIRTY degrees lower today than it was yesterday. I am exhausted and the clouds and lack of sunshine (while I am deeply grateful for the rain they will hopefully bring) are lulling me back to sleep.  I need some mirth. Fast.

So here's a picture of my kids and I at one of the natural springs in Manitou Springs, CO (where we went for Spring Break). People used to come to Manitou for the water and all of its "health" benefits. That stuff was pretty nasty, but I managed to convince my kids to try some. It was like an early April Fool's!

Or, if the thought of that tinny, salty water with the healing properties of snake oil won't do it for ya. . . just remember:

(Dear Person Who Thought to Stick This in the Cave of the Winds Gift Shop: you made my day. Seriously. Like a hundred times over. This was awesome!)

p.s. If any of you dear Readers ever go to Manitou Springs, be sure to eat at The Heart of Jerusalem restaurant. SO yummy!

Happy Monday everyone!
