Enjoying Spring Break

This week is our spring break...WHOO-HOO!!! It is the BEST week for spring break too! The weather is absolutely beautiful!!! The kids and I are riding around town with the windows down jamming out to some Jimmy Buffett...it's ok they know every word to Cheeseburger in Paradise right????

On our 1st day of spring break, we painted some stain glass pieces...lots of fun (and a little mess) As we were finishing up with painting we got a surprise phone call from some friends who happened to be in town and wanted to meet for lunch...so off we went. It was so good to let the kiddos play and get to have adult conversation =) After lunch, we headed to swim (yes, swim...in the middle of April...it was FREEZING but the kids had fun) Our first day was fun and I managed to keep everyone busy. =)

Below are some pics of painting:

Madeline...ready to paint

Jack...waiting patiently to start painting.

Jack is creating a masterpiece.

ok...so I have a mom confession...I win the bad mommy award today...I somehow managed to not take a picture of Madeline's finished art work...oops...hopefully she will be able to forgive me one day =)

So now we are off to enjoy the day at the pool again =) I know, I know its a hard life but someone has to do it...

I love the pool.. but it's too cold for me right now!! We actually stayed inside yesterday because of the POLLEN! After staying in for a few days in a row Eli can actually lay down and breath at the same time! I'm loving the weather but hating the allergens!

Don't ever think you're a bad mom because you didn't take a picture. You were living in the moment, and that's much more important than a picture!

Thank you for the wonderful comment on my blog today. It wasn't one of my better days, and it's so reassuring to know I have such a supportive group of friends in the blogosphere. Thanks for thinking of me.
