Spring Break 2016

After our ski trip, we decided that we would have a "staycation" for the kid's spring break.  Fortunately we had lots of friends who stuck around too, so we all had plenty of friends to do things with each day.  We tried to do something fun each day....the zoo, dyeing Easter eggs, spending time with family, playing at a new playground, hanging at the park, lots of walks, hiking at Red Mountain Park, two day trip to Chattanooga, Alabama gymnastics meet in Tuscaloosa and a birthday party!  Whew, I may need a vacation from their vacation!!

Walker had a blast, and made a HUGE mess dropping the eggs into cups.

We had a very busy 10 days off of school....sleeping in, staying up late, eating dinners late and playing outside a lot!  It will be a tough day tomorrow jumping back into our routine, but it was worth it!  Great Spring Break!
