Spring Break Recap

Okay…maybe that’s an exaggeration, but this momma is tired.  I loved spending time with the kids this week, but entertaining them all can be a challenge.   I often feel like a cruise director and my kids don’t want to just relax.  They like to go…so we went!!!

Monday:  Dad took the day off (Praise God) and we had a wonderful time at the park.  Princess and Gameboy played, rode their bikes and scooters.  Sarah and Sydney loved the stroller ride and being outside.  The weather was beautiful and we had a nice picnic lunch.  In the afternoon, the kids got in the hot tub and swam in the freezing cold pool.

Tuesday:  I completely lost my marbles when I agreed to take all four kids to Chuckie Cheese.  The big kids had a blast playing games, earning tickets and pooling the $$ to get cool junk prizes.  The place was so crowded, but I was lucky to find a spot near the door.  Sarah and Sydney weren’t big fans of the loud noise and even covered their ears with their hands.  I decided it was time to go when a kid ran by and knocked Sarah’s car seat off the highchair.  Thankfully she was strapped in, but there was no calming her down after that scary fall.  Even though my wallet was drained the trip was worth it.  Princess and Gameboy were super happy. 

Wednesday:  Daddy was getting jealous of my mom of the year status, so he decided to take the kids fishing.  I was thrilled to have a little break and they loved it.  They even caught a bass.  We had friends over for take out and late night swimming.

Thursday:  This was movie day!!  We headed out to buy dad’s birthday gift, eat out for lunch and go to the movies.  We saw the “Spy Next Door”.  The kids enjoyed the movie and Sarah and Sydney were good.  We got there early and were able to sit in the handicap seats.  The girls stayed in their stroller and did not fuss until the end of the movie.  I held them and stood the last 30 minutes and was thankful we had such a great day.

Friday: Princess and I headed to the nail salon for manicures and pedicures and it was so nice to spend time with just her.    She loved the treat and had a friend over to play all day.  Gameboy was off at a sleepover with his best friend

Saturday: The kids spent some time with Mimi and Papa!!  They love their grandparents and were thrilled to sleep over there Saturday night.

Sunday: We headed to church and did some chores to get ready for the week.

It was hard to get moving this morning for everyone.  I reminded the kids that summer was just around the corner.  I better start planning our summer of fun now, but first I am off to take a nap!!

5 Months Old!!!

I can’t believe my little sweeties are 5 months old. They are so precious to me and our time together is going by so fast. I have not gotten a good picture of them together but I will post a few of them. They have really started to notice each other and they laugh at each other all day.Blog1

They are loving trying new foods, but are still really messy eaters. I think they spit out more than they eat.blog2

They can sit with help for a few seconds and love to watch Princess and Gameboy play.blog4

These pictures did not turn out well. See Sarah…she’s pinching Sydney in the arm. The next few are of them crying.

Sweet Sarahblog6

This is still her favorite toy!!blog8

She loves to suck these two fingers.

5 months is a great age! Lots of smiles and laughs, sleeping through most nights, and not moving around when you set them down to play. Thank you Lord for these precious babies!!
