Spring Break

Wow! What a week! We have had a great time on Spring Break! We started it off with Evan's 7th birthday party. I cannot believe he is already 7! Time is going by too fast! He had a GREAT time at the Jump Zone. After jumping, we headed on over to his favorite restaurant for some Mexican food and birthday cake.


The next day is when we headed to Great Wolf Lodge. Oh my goodness! It was SO much fun. Derek and I just had the best time watching Evan have the time of his life. Ella Grace loved it, too, but Evan was in heaven!


Once back home, we played a lot at home, did some shopping and went on a few outings. I really wanted to take them to Wye Mountain. It is a beautiful daffodil patch. There are daffodils as far as you can see. Well, we went, and I guess we missed the peak days because there were NO daffodils. Ha! It didn't surprise me. That's just how we roll I guess. The kids still had a great time running around and we did manage to find a few flowers left.


Saturday, my mom watched Ev and EG, so Derek and I could have a date day/night. It was wonderful. We got a lot done and went to church. It was a great service. Then, we settled in with some take-out. We slept in this morning and are getting anxious to go get the kidlets. It's nice to have Derek all to myself, but I'm always ready to go get the rest of "us!" Ha! I love that before bed Ella Grace asked my mom, "I want to call Momma." When I answered the phone, she told me "Goodnight, Momma," soooo sweet!

Oh, and if you get a chance, I need you to pray for me. Remember when I told you all about this scary thing I did? Well, looks like I'll be doing it again Tuesday morning at 10:00 in front of the Senate! Aaaagh! I'm a ball of nerves just thinking about it! Thank you!


I snapped this picture sometime during our break. They had crawled in our bed that night. Nothing like a family bed! Neither one had any idea they were THAT close together. Ha! I thought it was so sweet. Ella would have loved the idea...Evan not so much! Ha!

Well, I'm off to get the kidlets. I hope you all had a fantastic Spring Break and enjoy a restful Sunday!

The last picture reminds me of me and Jason when we were little!! How sweet is that? I can totally see Evan waking up, though, and being all, "Um..whoa. WHY is she THAT CLOSE to me??" :)
