March 2013 Photos – March Snow, Children’s Museum, Spring Break, Easter

March brought along more snow, a mountain of it.  Michael’s first grade class was featured in the local Rochester Magazine.  He was quite proud of his cool artwork that he designed and colored.  Dan was adventurous and tried to replicate fried tofu balls with mixed success.  We entertained the family at the Rochester Children’s Museum which is a nice little off shoot of the Minneapolis Children’s Museum with basically room for a single rotating exhibit.   Spring Break we skipped town to Minneapolis and had some good food and swam in a hotel pool and hit up Mall of America for Nickelodeon Universe.

Greetings from San Diego!

We took advantage of my opportunity to present a poster at the American College of Physicians national meeting in San Diego this month and enjoyed the balmy California weather.  We made a whirlwind tour of Sea World, Legoland, the U.S.S Midway Museum, the San Diego Zoo, and even saw Hop (terrible) and Rango in a drive-in movie theater while there.   Ultimately we probably could have saved the time and money as the kids were more preoccupied with digging holes on the beach and running away from waves than most of the sights and attractions we visited.  Davey wanted to be buried in one of these holes and realized when neck-deep, it wasn’t as fun as he thought it would be.  We had an enjoyable few days there and I enjoyed taking some fun pictures.  The Caribbean San Diego is not, and I can only imagine if ever its muddled waters were ever so azure blue as I’ve colored them to be below.  Nevertheless it’s a city that is close to our hearts, our honeymoon destination, and a place that we’ve frequented since.  We’ll get some pictures of the boys on their vacation up in our galleries soon for you to peruse.

The Blue Lagoon, Bahamas Panorama

The Blue Lagoon in the Bahamas was one of our day excursions during spring break and I took a change to snap a few pictures of the back beach before anyone got over there.  Here’s a panorama of the results.

Spring Break 2010: Our Family Adventure to Florida and The Bahamas

By , June 6, 2010 at 6:33 pm

So this year being probably our last ‘break’ for a while to come (no summer break for me this year, chalk that up to another upcoming licensing exam, followed immediately by 4th year rotations, then residency applications and another interview circuit come later this fall-winter and then intern year + only scheduled vacation time in the future), we decided to splurge a bit and had a mini family reunion with my sister’s family in Orlando, Florida.  Instead of globe-trotting without the family (Europe, China), I finally got the chance to bring the whole family in tow and boy did we make the most of it!  In the end I’d say we had an awesome adventure.  To come will be my Spring Break 2010 entries with more details by the location of our travels in Florida and the Bahamas.  In the meantime you can peruse the plethora of pictures that are already posted.  Stay tuned!
