Our Family's Bitter/Sweet Life

Sprng Break '11

Last week was Spring Break for my kiddos.  No, it wasn't actually SPRING.  We like to do things backwards around here.  Of course, it snowed over spring break since it was still... WINTER!  It was a very light snow that melted by the next morning, but STILL.  Regardless of that little weather blip, the kids and I really did have a great time together. 

Our week was filled with friends, family, and fun.  We had an event planned for each day.  Lucky for you, I forgot to take pictures most of the time.

In the middle of last week, we took a trip to the zoo.  The boys made fun of me since I didn't take pictures of the animals.  When all is said and done, I don't care what the tigers looked like.  I am trying to capture my kids' memories.  (Or maybe I'm just trying to drive them crazy.  They aren't really big fans of my camera.)

 Here they are ready to start the day!

These two crack me up when they are together... true siblings!

Now, these two are so sweet together.

Bruiser LOVES animals, so the zoo was right up his alley.

Dimples was a huge help.  I love the young man he is turning into...even if he sometimes thinks he knows it all.  ;0)

We met some friends there, which made the day even sweeter.

It was a beautiful day!

But, my feet were yelling at me that night.  ;0)

The next day the kids and I took a little road trip about an hour and a half south of here to meet up with some dear friends at a really cool park.  It is always a good day when you get to spend it with close friends!

These two are a hoot together.  I love their energy!

Here is our bunch, minus Dimples.  He was too mature to stand next to the silly Peter Pan statue.

These girls are so cute together.  I love to watch them play! (And so does the little brother on the end. ;0)

Here's a picture of Dimples, just to prove he was there with us.  Apparently, he wasn't too mature to play on the equipment.

On Friday, the kids and I spent the day with Bubby and Papa.  Of course the day included  ice cream and toys.  (I can't wait until I can sugar them up, spoil them, and SEND THEM HOME! HA!)  That night, Nurse Boy and I farmed out the kids and had a late night out with some friends.  It was pure delight... lots of laughter, great friends, and my hubby by my side!

On Saturday, our spring break took an unexpected turn...

(I'll post more later.)

Hope you are enjoy Spring now... since it is officially springtime according to the calendar.

Why isn't your dashing husband in any of the pictures?

Looks like fun. Who doesn't like to go to the zoo and be with people they like?

This spring that you mention. What does it look like? We've had a few fleeting glimses. Yesterday it was high 60's. This morning, I have to clean snow off my truck before I head off to work.

Love the pictures. Looks like a lot of fun. Though you now have me curious about the turn your break took!

Hello friend!

I don't get to read blogs in between patients anymore. They Corporate heads have banned internet us. I have missed reading.

I too am curious about the turn of events.

The Zoo?? Spring break IS a Zoo,at feeding time, around here.

I think Suz and I are going to try to escape with our brood. Here's hoping I remember the camera, cause your pictures are so fun.
