So they put a list together of "must do's" and each day we tackled an item. We kicked off our Spring Break 2015 with a day trip to Tuscaloosa to watch the Blue Angels. I worried that the kids would lose interest, but they stayed for the entire show, and loved it! Thanks to Uncle Dan for securing the tickets and buying each of the kids an airplane to remember the special day. They loved learning about the various aircraft, and watching all of the acrobat airplanes, helicopters and of course, the Blue Angels....especially when the planes would come out of the clouds when they least expected it and scare everyone.

On Sunday, we had a family day. We went to church, had lunch at a new place for us, and then we went hiking at Moss Park Preserve. It was a cloudy day, but it was perfect for hiking and exploring the new terrain. Steve and I took turns carrying Walker, and he even walked and explored some on his own. Even Beckham got to join in on the fun. The overcast day made it perfect for being outside....not too hot!
Monday, we decided to hit the zoo! Though we have been a hundred times, we all still enjoy visiting it. In addition, Walker hadn't really walked around and visited the animals. We spent the morning there checking out all of the animals, and even riding on one of the new traveling exhibits (a tube slide). Caroline joined us, and it was a fun morning!

|Annual Easter tradition|
Friday Bennett went to Myra's with Sara for their annual Easter bunny decorating. While she had fun, we packed up the car and got ready for our night away. We picked her up on our way up to Smith Lake to check out Brian and Shannon's new lake house. The kids swam in the unheated pool, played outside and painted Easter eggs while we grilled out and caught up. We ended the weekend with Easter Sunday, where we all went to church and then met back up for lunch. What a fun staycation!
