And her article has hit a major chord out there. In the last couple days, we've had almost 600,000 hits (yep, you read the number right) on our website. Wow. After working day in and day out for the past 4 years to create great stuff for moms and spread the word about our site, April's great article got forwarded again and again and seriously went viral. Yeah! I hope this will mean that 1000's more moms will be able to enjoy all that Power of Moms has to offer.
Here's the article if you'd like to check it out. April is one of my all-time favorite writers.

The only problem is that the website keeps crashing with all this new traffic but luckily, our fabulous webmaster, Jared, has been able to get things fixed up and running nicely (between cable car rides and museum visits - we're in San Francisco with our kids for Spring Break and for the Power of Moms Retreat here this weekend).
We had a great Easter weekend. We drove all day Friday. Spent Saturday with my sister Charity visiting the gorgeous craggy coast and Redwood groves of Big Sur. We loved the amazing Easter program Charity was in at her church in Palo Alto (she was totally the star of show with her beautiful flute playing and it was fun to take the kids to a singles' ward like the one where Jared and I met - wow, it's quiet at a ward with no kids...). Then we enjoyed Easter dinner at Jared's sister Kathryn and brother-in-law MJ's lovely home in Oakland. Since then we've been visiting all our old favorite places in San Francisco and seeing some great friends.
I've got tons of great pictures of our adventures and will post them when I get a minute. After all our kids were born here, the Bay Area will always be home in many ways and we're having a great time.
