Spring Break 2013

We may not have gone on a big spring break vacation, but the kids still reportedly had fun. That is what is important, right?

We kicked off spring break at Jumping Jax in Papillion with Reding family. Funny, I saw a few other people there from Shadow Lake. Lucky for us, the place was not busy. The afternoon was filled with decorating Easter cut out cookies while Asher still went to his Monday afternoon preschool class.

 Next up, member's hour and more at the Omaha Children's Museum where we met the Frederick Family. The girls loved Asher's little twin friends (as we typically only see them when the girls are in school!). We had the best time. And, I was so happy that Jill reminded me of member's hour at 9, to beat the rush.

Wednesday brought more time with the Reding Family, this time at the zoo. The weather was kinda cool but not terrible. We were able to enjoy the indoor and outdoor animals, have a picnic lunch and end the day with an IMAX at 2. Alivia ended the day hosting a sleepover with her friend Gabby at our home.

Thursday was the day that was voted best of spring break. We visited Skate Daze in Omaha where the kids ran through their endless tube system and Addison roller skated (for maybe 10 minutes) with the Eickmeier family. The kids had a blast here. I will have to remember this to take them on very hot summer days, too. Addison ended the day having a sleepover at Kaitlyn's house.

Friday we went to the library and picked up some books and movies to enjoy at home. We spend the day relaxing at home (more because I needed to rest up for work at 7!). They were able to enjoy pizza that night with Daddy while I went to work (ugh).

The kids were also lucky to have Monday off of school. We woke up to a crummy April Fool's joke by mother nature...snow! We went back to the library and the kids read in quiet places, played educational games on the computer, etc. I love it that they love the library! Finally, a quiet place they like to go AND READ! Win win!

It was a fun spring break. It may (and probably will be) my last spring break as a really part time employee. Our future spring breaks may be more challenging to figure out. But, I am glad I was able to enjoy this one with them and our friends.

Easter Card Picture for 2013. Loved Asher's little tie (so cute!) and the little outfits I found for the girls.
