Spring Break 2012

Spring Break has come and gone.  We had a great week, balancing lots of fun plans with some good down time at home.  The girls had a slumber party at Deedee's, we played with Brody, lunched with our neighbors, and went to the zoo.  When we were at home,  we spent a lot of time outside.

Graham discovered the feel of grass!

The girls wore themselves out on these swings.  Sydney mastered pumping!

The girls loved having Graham outside!

 If the sun is out at all and we spend any amount of time outside, the girls want to put their bathing suits on and run through the sprinkler.  By the end of the week, I let them go for it!  If only you could hear the squeals of delight.....

Lest you think the whole week was sunshine and roses, we had a few fall-down-on-the-ground-crying fits thrown in!

But more often than not, we had smiles!

It was so nice having the girls home all week with no real schedule ordering us around.  I think everyone got a good break from the normal routine and enjoyed some relaxation.  During the school year, we sometimes get the grumpy leftovers of everyone's mood.  Over spring break, everyone spent most of the time in good spirits, and we really enjoyed hanging out together.  It made me excited for the summer!

Glad everyone is rested up...the next few weeks are busy ones!  Someone's turning six soon!!!
