Here we go again!

It seems we are still recovering from our week off in February and now we have spring break. At least the weather is on our side this time. That opens a whole new window of possibilities!

Today was day 2 of spring break and lots more fun than yesterday. I do have to say that all the kids were awesome helpers yesterday as we got the laundry done, cleaned bathrooms, and swept and mopped the floors. Anthony took over and did the floors for me and later told me that his new hobby was mopping floors. What a funny boy! We did play outside yesterday afternoon for a little bit and enjoyed the sunshine and beautiful spring weather.

Today the kids and I went to the library to pick out some new books and movies. We didn't stay as long as the older kids would have wanted because Abigail makes library time a bit difficult. Guess I will just take the stroller next time so she won't have any freedom! From there we went to McDonald's and then took our lunch to a nearby park for a picnic. The weather was beautiful and we spent our time wandering through the little farm area and checking out the different animals, playing at the playground, climbing trees, and watching the geese swim in the lake. Silly me forgot the camera so you will just have to use your imagination to visualize our wonderful day.

After a day like that it was early bedtime for the kids and me trying to get caught up on dishes and various household chores that didn't get done while I was playing.

Good for you! Everyone needs a day off. This weather has me in a mind of Summer Vacation. I had to remind myself that it will be over soon, I am not ready.:) Hope you enjoy the rest of yours.

Sounds like a good 2 days to me-- except the cleaning the bathroom and mopping the floors part! Have fun the rest of the week!
