Spring Break & Easter Pictures....

This week is/was spring break for the kids and we really couldn't have asked for nicer weather. We have had some really warm days.

On Friday we met Theresa, Charity, Mikayah & QT on the playground. Then we ate dinner at Bob's Lunch, which just opened for the season.

Here are the "April Fools" just before the race. On Saturday the girls ran in the annual April Fool's race. They ran with some friends and they all did great. Dillon peed played on the playground during the race.

Easter Sunday was a beautiful day. The kids had THREE egg hunts: 1. at home 2. at church and 3. at Meme & Papa's house. We enjoyed a great "traditional" Easter dinner at Meme & Papa's house with PJ, Donna & McKenna.
Pictures: The camera was on the wrong setting so some are a bit out of focus. As you will see Jaggar (cat) really enjoys being part of the family :)

All ready for church.

Sunday night the girls spent the night with Meme, Papa & McKenna. They had lots of fun having a sleepover with their cousin. Then on Monday morning Dillon and I picked them all up and we headed to the Fun Spot for roller skating and jumping in the bouncy houses. We met Theresa, Charity,Mikayah, Quinten and Laurie and her daughter Scout (who is good friends with Charity and Chloe). Chloe was impressed that McKenna could text and skate at the same time. She's a very talented 13 year old :) We had lunch there, played a bit longer then headed home.

Tuesday the girls had Charity and Mikayah spend the night. The girls were out playing when Jim, the farmer, came over. He parked his tractor in the field next to our lawn (that he was plowing). He said he knew we had "someone" who might like to ride in the tractor with him. Well, he was right. BUT it was not only 1 "someone", but THREE "someones". I thought it best for me to go so we, (Hannah, Mikayah and Dillon) loaded up into the tractor with him and off we went to plow the field. It is a really nice tractor. I had my own seat! Who would believe that 2 adults and three kids could easily fit in a tractor. Jim told Dillon that those weren't rocks we saw they were dinosaur eggs. He liked that. He also let them "steer".Hannah can't wait to get back in that tractor!

Wednesday we planned a picnic at the school playground with: Theresa, Charity, Mikayah, QT and Marcy and her kids Delaney,Kathan & Sawyer and Nicole and her kids Shea & Jack (Jack is Dillon's friend from preschool). Dillon's friend Joshua was also there with his grandmother and sister. It was a busy place. The weather was gorgeous! Warm with a very lite breeze. Everyone played great. 

Now it's Thursday. The girls are going to the movies with Meme and McKenna in a bit to see "Diary of a Wimpy Kid". I think we (me, Darr & Dillon) are going to go out to lunch. Today is Darr's day off.

Tomorrow evening I'm heading out with some friends. We all thought we needed some "kid-free time".  The kids are ALL staying over night at Meme & Papa's house. Darr is working. Lately we have been having problems with Dillon going to bed. I hope he isn't bad for Meme.

So, that was Spring break. It's almost over but I can say we had a really good vacation.
