Happy First Day of Spring!
Monday, March 21
(Spring missed the memo. ;)
First day of Spring Break "staycation" lunch. (Blueberry ricotta pancakes with our most favorite syrup ever.)
We spent the afternoon making String Art.
And working on projects from a fun package. :)
Tuesday, March 22
Watch-All-The-TV-You-Want-While-Mommy-Paints-The-Bathrooms Day. (But first, math. [Insert maniacal laugh.])
The blue before it became white.
Wednesday, March 23
We made a quick stop at the mall.
(We treat Anthropologie much like an art museum. They have the coolest displays.)
Before going on a new hike.
Thursday, March 24
We met our friends (and their gerbils).
For a fun morning at the local zoo.
And lunch at the park.
Before heading to music lessons, the library and the grocery store for a few odds and ends and spring flowers.
Friday, March 25
We began to celebrate Easter by making Resurrection Rolls. (We had never made them before, and M had the perfect response--"Gasp. They're empty!")
Realizing that we didn't have as many eggs as we wanted, we quickly went to the grocery store (again) to grab more. We were all dressed in clothes that would be fine to spill dye all over and the kids were alarmed to leave the house not feeling like they were dressed for the day. (True story. Poor kids.;) So, we paused to take a picture of us going out in our "lounge-wear." ;)
After cleaning up and grabbing a quick pizza dinner (and throwing on jeans ;) we headed to church for a Good Friday night service.
Spring Break flew by--but we still had a few more fun things to do before it was over...
