Spring Break 2012

I was so glad I was finally able to get off the couch and enjoy spring break with my kiddos!

Monday: We had lots of friends over. I was glad the weather was so nice so the kids and their friends were in and out all day.

Tuesday: I ventured out for a short drive and took the older kids to the rec center to swim. I was not however brave enough. I sat reading a book while they swam with friends.

Wednesday: Finally felt like a could drive a bit farther and we went with friends to Jumpin', an indoor bounce house place. I was worried that it would be packed, but the empty parking lot alleviated my fears. Other than our group, I think there was only one or two other families. the kids had the run of the place. I was worried that Cooper would have a hard time, but he LOVED it! It helped that there weren't a bunch of big kids so he felt really comfortable on everything, especially the giant slide.

Afterward, we went to Claire's were Morgan got her ears pierced. Exciting stuff!

Thursday: The weather was absolutely gorgeous! We packed our picnic lunch and headed to the zoo. It truly was a zoo there -- it was crazy BUSY! We drove around for quite awhile before lucking out and finding a spot right in front. Score! We all had a good time and it was the perfect way to spend the day.

Friday: My friend Kris had to help at a funeral, so I watched her kiddos much of the day. They brought Just Dance 3 and we all got our "groove thangs" on.

Saturday: We stayed home to watch General Conference. When Ken went to the Priesthood session, I took the kids to Chick-fil-a where we met friends for dinner. After the kids got bored with the play area we headed to the park where the kids ran off the sugar from their ice cream cones. We also got to witness a beautiful sunset.

Sunday: We LOVED getting to watch more General Conference. It is always such a blessing to hear counsel given to us by servants of the Lord.

At the beginning of the week, I was concerned, but it ended up being a great spring break and I loved getting to do so many fun things with the kids.
