Spring Break!

18 Apr

I’ ve been pretty lame about updating my blog here lately. I guess I’ve just been tired and lazy to be honest. I feel the past month has been a little crazy with Spring Break and the sickness that has plagued our house on and off. So I’ve been in a funk since then a little when it came to updating this here blog. The kids have been pretty good today about playing and not using me as a pillow/jungle gym/punching bag so while they are occupied at the moment I thought I would FINALLY give an update. So here is our Spring Break trip to Palm Springs in pictures.

This is how much it takes for a family of four to go away for 3 nights lol. That’s not even all of it!

Uncle Jerry with Caleb ready to go swimming in his pool. Sun was right in Caleb’s face, oops.

Caleb could barely stay still for this picture, he was itching to get in the pool.This was the first time either of them has ever gone in the pool with water wings and at first they had a little trouble, but after a little adjusting they were swimming like little fish!

Caleb getting ready to jump in to daddy.

The next day we went to the Living DesertΒ and met up with my sister and her boyfriend. This place was pretty neat and if your ever in Palm Springs I suggest you check it out.

Daddy got tired of pushing so he said “My turn!”

We saw these lizards run across the pathway and when I knelt down to get a picture of them, they ran towards me! Kinda crazy that they weren’t scared.

And then I also worked in a little practice with my camera. They had this huge miniature train town set up. It was pretty cool.

There were a lot of humming birds flying around everywhere and I tried to get a decent picture of one since I’m still a little slow when it comes to choosing which settings to use in manual mode. Β This is the best one I was able to get.

After such a wonderful day it was a little bit of a bummer to get back to Uncle Jerry’s house and realize the boys had little fevers. So we took a nap and when we woke up, they were no better. Boo. We missed out on a huge family dinner but maybe it was for the best since they didn’t end up eating until midnight and that is way too late for the kids lol. They are used to dinner at the latest 8pm and bed by 8:30pm. So we gave them some medicine and put them to bed after eating a wonderful meal made by Uncle Dennis.

Despite the boys being sick we still woke up Easter morning to a yummy family breakfast and after mommy and daddy made a desperate run to CVS to get Easter baskets for the kids, yes we did procrastinate lol, the boys got to go on a little Easter egg hunt in Uncle Jerry’s backyard.

They each had a different area of the yard to ensure that Gavin was able to find some eggs too. Caleb had a special golden egg hidden that had money in it too! Shortly after everyone started going home and we decided since the boys were sick and uncomfortable we decided to go home too after a quick last swim in the pool.

Even though we all got sick except for daddy, we had a great time. The boys had so much fun being around so many cousins and family and it was really nice to get some days off where we had no plans or errands to run, just deciding what pool to hang out at for the day. I’ve got some sewing updates but I think I’ll save that for another day, dinner needs to get made.
