Spring Break...

The kids have been on Spring Break this week, and we decided to just lay low and stay in town.  We've tried to do fun things all week to keep the kids active and having fun.  We started the break off with a neighborhood night of s'mores.  It's so nice- the kids run and play, and we adults get to chat and catch up.  We've had friends over almost every day of the week and the trampoline has been getting lots of use!  We went to our old neighborhood in West Virginia and played at the park and visited Cone Zone.  We met up with the Bundicks and did the Berryville Park and Addie has officially conquered the monkey bars- and it's true- Chris doesn't know a stranger.  He meets kids at every park we go to and organizes games.:)  We've had family fun days with the Layne's and celebrated sweet Taylor's birthday.  We've visited Pappy every day and the kids have not complained once about going. The kids have really warmed my heart- Pappy loves seeing them and Addie thinks she is Nurse Addie.  Chris also has a special way with Pappy and likes to feed him sips of juice. We've grilled out, ridden bikes, gone on family walks, and we're ready for school to resume- HA!!!!

We also had a night at the circus...  My clowns...:)

 Addie was so excited to get to see her boyfriend D.J.:)
 But fell asleep during the last 20 minutes of the show- because it was boring- What!?! Ha!
As a mommy, I try to plan, plan, plan activities for the kids.  We were planning a trip to Busch Gardens at the beginning of the week, but it didn't work out due to Brendan's schedule... and sometimes things are a blessing in disguise.  Chris told me today that this has been his best spring break ever because he's gotten to play with his friends.  It's true- sometimes we just need to be.:)
