Spring Break

Can you believe Spring Break is almost over? Without the kids in school the only reminder that it is Spring Break is that there are so many people out and about during the day. We have still managed to have a bit of fun this week though. Monday I spent most of my day at the rodeo with my mom and my sisters. We had a GREAT time, which we always do when it's just us girls. Matt kept the kids until he had to go to work and we had the girl next door stay at the house while they slept until I got home. Tuesday was the same old daily grind. Wednesday Matt got home around 6 in the morning and slept until lunch time. I had just put the kids down for a nap when he woke so we were able to enjoy a nice lunch with each other and catch up on our DVR list. When the kids got up we gave them a quick lunch and took them out to the park. This weather makes me so happy to have a house near the park. When we got back I put the kids back down for a short afternoon nap while Matt went to the gym and I cooked dinner. It was just a great day at home with my kids and my hubby. It is rare to get that kind of time all together without having to run errands or get cleaning done or going to the doctor (lately this has been a big one). The kids really enjoyed it too, Brooke kept going over to Matt and giving him a big hug and saying, "Thank you, daddy, for taking me to the park and playing monkey bars!" She is such a sweet heart and definately melted our hearts. It just goes to show that you really dont have to buy your kid all the new toys to make them happy, they really just want time with their parents. Well i just heard little Brooke open her door from nap time, we are heading to the store for some more milk... we can't keep enough of that stuff in the house since Brooke was taken off juice! Hope you are enjoying your Spring Break!

Those kind of days are priceless. I hope you have more of those days than not.

Sounds as if fun was had by all. I know Matt must really enjoy those rare days with you and the kids. He seems to always be working. I'm so happy that he and Brooke got to spend some daughter and daddy time together. Hope you have many more days of fun during this wonderful spring and summer.

Matt does really enjoy those days... He says he doesn't feel like a vampire when he actually gets to enjoy the sun! we are going to go to the Zoo sometime in the next week or so with the kids Mamo (Matt's mom), but today will be spring cleaning in the garage!
