Spring break always = tax season for me. And even though I work, part, part time....it's still busy enough that I feel like we can't GO anywhere for spring break, but we sure cram in a lot just staying home. We tried to do one fun outing a day..
First up, my niece's birthday party...Frozen style! Finley was turning 3 and is such a cutie!
Fun being with my sisters including Camille who moved here from Chicago! I love having her so close!
We met up with some friends for a movie only to be turned away after buying tickets and popcorn because the projector was down. With refunds and free movie tickets in hand, we headed to the park for some fun.
The next day we headed to the only open pool we could find, in Fife, about a 40 minute drive. But my kids love to swim and it had a really nice kiddie pool too.
We put together a birthday package from my Dad who was turning 60 in the middle of the month.
We ventured to some favorite local spots: The Root Beer Store which sells...you got it, root beer! In about 200 varieties.
And our fave local donut shop: Epic Donuts.
On the weekend, Carson got to attend his first ever, General Priesthood Meeting. His first one since turning 12. With boys in the ranks, Trevor will have a son to go with for quite awhile. Handsome boys right there.
General Conference always falls on Spring Break which makes for an extra relaxing weekend, with good food, and major spiritual recharging. Some great were messages shared by the prophet and apostles.
The following week the kids were back in school, but my SIL, Becca was on her spring break with her kids....so she came up to play. She stayed with my sister, but we met up with them at the zoo. We haven't been in quite awhile and the little boys just loved it (the bigger kids were in school).
But the following day I pulled the bigger kids out of school early so we could attend the Puyallup Spring Fair with them. So fun that this state-wide event is right in our home town. Animals, Rides, and Cotton Candy...what's not to like?!
We had such a fun time taking a break from our regular school routine. We definitely never have time to be bored though...we fill the schedule pretty darn well!
