Spring Break

Well, Spring Break didn't turn out exactly like we had planned, but we've still made the most of it!!
We were headed to the lake to camp on Saturday, but unfortunately weren't able to stay at the campsite, so we headed back home.
Almost there!!!
I promised the kids we would still have a fun week, though!! 
Sunday after church the first thing I did was get Aaron's 6 year pictures in the Rocking Chair. I take the kids' picture every year at their birthday in this chair. I was my Grannie's and she rocked me in it when I was a baby.

Then we headed to skyzone for the afternoon. Looking for something to ensure your kids get a good nights sleep? This is it!!

Monday morning we got up and headed to the rodeo. We took a friend with us, too and we were all worn out by the time we made it home!!
This is Emma's favorite ride!!
Emma's favorite ride at the carnival!! My feet & head are aching so I guess that means we had a blast!!! #hlsr #houstonrodeo2016
Tilt-a-whirl was a hit, too!

And of course there was lots of time spent in with the animals!

So on Day 2 of our unplanned Spring Break Staycation we ended up at the park for the day!
We picnicked, we played, we practiced softball and t-ball! It was a fun day!
Banana pudding for the win!

The ducks and fish got our leftovers!

We had a swinging contest to see who could go the highest!

After our day at the park we came home to rest a while and then hit up Alamo Drafthouse to see Zootopia with friends! But first we took in some Torchy's Tacos - they did not disappoint!!
Was definitely a pre-movie hit today!!!! #torchystacos
Neither did the movie! We all thought it was awesome!
Yesterday was an extremely lazy day...not so much on purpose, but I got sick. I had about 102 fever for most of the day. My tonsils are so swollen and hurt so bad. Today my fever hasn't been as bad, but my throat is on fire and my tonsils are still swollen - so it's been another day of staying indoors. But the kids are truly make the most of it!!
Emma has been busy in the kitchen - this girl is really starting to love baking and making sweets. She's made cookies two or three days this week already!
Chocolate covered pretzels anyone?!?!
