So now that the toy room is all clean & unpacked & organized, we got to do one of our themed days today for Day 2 of Spring Break. Today was
The sun was shining & the sky was blue. How could we NOT spend the entire day outside? The first thing we did was break out the sidewalk chalk. I saw an idea on Pintrest the other day where people drew funny scenes on the sidewalk & then posed in the scenes. The kids thought that was a hilarious idea so we spent a good hour drawing & posing to our hearts content. The pics turned out adorable.
Then of course we broke out the bubbles from the Easter Bunny. My kids LOVE bubbles & again we spent an entire HOUR blowing bubbles in the sunshine.
By now it was lunch time & we were all getting hungry. Since we just moved into our house & I'm still trying to find things in my kitchen, I cheated & opted for a "take-out" picnic. We went to Tropical Smoothie Cafe & got some lunch & took it to the lake by our house & had a picnic lunch. It was PERFECT. . . . I especially enjoyed my pina colada smoothie in the hot sun.
And since there is a fun park right there at the lake, we stayed & played for another hour until the kids were so worn out they were ready for a nap.
After the park, the little ones took a nap. Lorien played outside with a neighbor friend & Cadence took her kite back to the lake with her friend from church. They were gone for 2 hours & I got to hook up my computer & get my pictures uploaded & what-not while the boys slept.
When the littles woke up we went back outside & went for a bike ride. Then the boys got out their bubble lawn mower toy & played all afternoon taking turns pushing the lawn mower across the lawn. I sat on the porch (since I'm technically still on partial-bedrest. . . 6 more weeks!) & ate grapes while they played.
Then it was time for dinner. Tonight's spotlight was Craiger. Craiger got to choose dinner for tonight so he chose pizza & bananas. He was very happy.
I forgot to mention that last night was Bladen's special night so we made Chicken Nuggets & French Fries for him.
Tomorrow is Science Day which is always one of my favorites. I've got a few fun projects to do with the kids to peak their science interests. It will be fun.
Until then. . .
