Spring Break

We are on spring break this week! I had decided to take kids to my parents to visit for a day and night.  My mom called later and offered to keep the kids for a couple of days.  

So Monday morning we headed their way and stopped for lunch.  

Hollis' birthday just keeps going on and on.  She got presents from my parents and Aunt Linda and we had birthday cake.  

The kids were quickly outside playing in leaf piles and my parents' dog.  

And Will Holden is always in heaven when he gets to ride Papa's tractor.  

We had beautiful weather on Monday and Tuesday so being outside was perfect! 

Aunt Linda came over and brought the girls tons of jewelry and purses she had cleaned out of her collection for them.  The girls are so lucky to have her pass on all of her fun things to them.  They LOVE it! 

Yesterday morning I got up early and drove home and left them behind.  The difference between leaving little kids with their grandparents and bigger kids is the girls have ipads and their grandparents wifi so they can text me and face time me.  And they facetimed me twice yesterday.  But at least I know how they are doing.  As great as it is to be home in a quiet house - I miss them! 

It was SO nice outside and I probably should have been cleaning something but I decided to go on a long trail walk.  It took me 2 hours but I walked 6.5 hours.  I could barely move last night but it felt so great! 

Mean while the kids have had a great time.  Will Holden told my mom "My parents won't mind if you take me to Walmart and buy me a toy" .  ha ha ha!  That is not true but it worked! 

I"m trying to get a lot done today and then Scott and I are going on a date tonight! The kids are coming home tomorrow and then we are going on a little weekend trip as a family! 

We aren't really "spring break trip" people.  But I have been looking at places we might could go next year.  Maybe as the kids get older we will pull off a spring break trip.  But for now a few days with grandparents and each other is perfect!
