The Calm Before the Storm

Mrs. Nurse Boy here.

Spring Break~ Day 5

Today started with the promise of spring and ended with the reality of a cold, hard winter that won't go away without a fight. I awoke to birds singing and my boys dancing. Dimples and Bruiser were promised a full day with Papa. To them, that beat just about anything I had planned all week long.
Their day started at a local park.
They even got to take in a little history lesson while at the park.
Not stop was a car museum. My dad has always loved old cars. I think it is so cool that he now gets to share that love with my boys.
They ate lunch at McDonald's and spent the rest of the afternoon at the movie theater. Sweet Pea and I met up with them at the soccer fields so Dimples could squeeze in a quick soccer practice before the snow arrived.
Yep, I just mentioned that four letter word that I had sworn not to utter again until December of 2010. We are supposed to wake up to snow in the morning and it is only suppose to go down hill from there.
And I thought tomorrow was the first day of spring.
Flip flops, I promise to dust you off in the very near future. But, not tomorrow. Or the next day. And, probably not next week.
The boys had a fabulous day with Papa! I am thankful they get to have fun memories such as those. I am pretty sure Bruiser is already planning their next big day.
Have a fabulous weekend. I plan to stay in and pretend that the white stuff outside is just a nightmare... I mean, dream.

WEll their papa sounds just awesome. They look pretty happy doing all the things with him. What a fun filled day. Hope the snow just blows right by you...and us for that matter. We are supposed to get some too. Yuck.

A day with Papa, sounds like fun.

We had a lot of the same weather here. Sun, rain, wind, sun, then followed by snow, ending in cold and ugly.

Hopefully you still have some hot coco around.

Oh NO!! Stupid snow - I'm telling you, you need to go somewhere that doesn't even know what snow looks like except once in a lifetime!

Hope your weekend is fantastic, despite the 'you know what'.

Grandpa's have a special bond with their grandkids. It's kind of like chocolate cake for breakfast.

And I really can't believe you used that four letter word on your blog.Maybe your kids should put YOU in time out.

Ugh. What is with snow in March? I really can't imagine (so I won't tell you it was in the 70's here yesterday, 'cause that would be cruel).

Looks like the boys had a blast! My boys love outings with my parents. Going to the movies together is sort of their thing.

Have a great weekend. Stay warm!!!

Yesterday I put on a cute spring outfit complete with sandals. It started snowing, I pretended the snowflakes were apple blossoms floating down...I'm delusional that way.

What a fun day the boys had.

It's been snowing here too. Blah. We were in the high sixties this week and now we're getting snow. Grr.

My son would kill for a picture with that dragon thing. Very cool.

Snow in Spring, ugh! I won't even mention my flip flop wearing. Not at all. :)
