this is the time of year when the family is hit with the flu or some sort of illness. a few years ago, craig endured a flight home from new york with full-blown pneumonia. another year, we all came down with strep throat, stuck in a cabin up in big bear. this year is no exception. these photos were taken yesterday at seal beach pier, right before i came down with a sore-throat, unbearable, all-over body ache and a low-grade fever. i am home with the boys today watching TLC's clean sweep, as they fold laundry. oh yeah, this is spring break.
