Spring Break

Last week was spring break and I was really looking forward to it. Why? Well, for several reasons, 1. No school bus to catch (meaning I can sleep in). 2. No homework. 3. Lots of fun things planned. We had a fun-packed week spent with friends and just ourselves. We started our break with a visit to Liberty Zone and lunch at Pizza Hut with my friend Amy and her boys, Ian, Luke, and Mason. The next day I took Alex and Ava to Bellaboo's, which is an indoor play area-very fun. The kids enjoyed painting, making pizza's, grocery shopping, and making their own "mud pies".

Can you find Ava?

Wednesday was a trip to Chicago for a yearly allergy checkup for Alex and lunch at the Rainforest Cafe afterwards.

The next day we went to the Curious Kid's Museum in Michigan with my friend Amy and her 3 boys again. The kids had fun exploring and playing around with the different exhibits.

Ian, Alex, Ava, and Luke-ready to have some fun!

On Friday our friends came over for some video gaming and the boys had a good time playing Lego Star Wars, Super Mario, and Mario Kart. We ended the week with an Easter egg hunt on Saturday at our subdivision park. Alex and Ava had fun collecting eggs and now have a nice little stash of candy.

Getting ready for the big hunt.

Lots of eggs=lots of candy!

It was a great week but I am glad to be back to our normal daily routine. :)

Black Eyed Peas

After 2 years of blogging, I think this is the first post that isn't about the kids and is just about me (can you tell I don't get out much?). I love the Black Eyed Peas, they were coming to Chicago, and thanks to my father-in-law, I got tickets to see them. I took my friend, Brandi, and all I can say is that it was an awesome concert!

Posing with the BEP

We had really good seats!


It was a bit crowded...
