spring break


I totally had intentions of breaking this up and posting it as it happened.  But then….that didn't happen. So this is an extra long mega post of pictures.  As usual.  :)

The week started off pretty good….Monday we hung around the house, went to the library, and played outside in the beautiful weather.

Tuesday….Parker woke up not feeling well.  She had fever and complained of a tummy ache.  She never got sick this day, but was lethargic and we did a lot of just hanging out and movie watching.  She basically went to bed at 5:30 that night and slept until almost 8am the next morning.  I know she didn't feel well, bless her heart.

Wednesday…she woke up and said she felt better.  And that she wanted orange juice.  I did tell her I didn't think she should have it…and well…I made a poor choice and let her have it and she drank it….and got sick.

This guy was crawling all on the dishwasher when I'd turn around to flip a pancake.  I'd get him off.
When I ran to the living room to help Parker….I came back to this.

The good news is….she was feeling better about an hour after that and did not run a fever after that.  However….she didn't really get all the way back to normal and with a normal appetite until Saturday?

But in the meantime….

The girls wanted me to take pictures of them posing like Elsa.  Seriously….all their doing.
{Grace LOVES to put on her Elsa wig…but LOVES even more to put on lipstick.  And she's always loved the lipstick…but since it appears that Elsa has a nice dark color on in the movie…she asks for it even more now.}

One night I needed to put the laundry away.  And Nolan wanted me to hold him.  So we met in the middle.



So since Tuesday and Wednesday were spent with Parker being sick….Thursday she seemed to be better.  And Geoff was off so it was time to start trying to do a few 'spring break' things.

It was beautiful out so we decided to head to the park.  Grace put her shoes on.  I glanced down and said, "Hey sweetie….I think you have your shoes on the wrong feet."  To which she replied, "Uuuhhh!  I wike 'dem 'dat way!"

Well….all right then.



We picked Payton up to join us and have another slumber party.  The girls were all so excited.






He thinks he's such a big boy.











Grace, Parker, Nolan, & Payton (my niece)


We didn't stay at the park long because there were quite a few people there and a dog that someone did not have on a leash so, of course, made the girls (mostly Grace) uneasy.

We headed to Cici's for dinner….a place they all said they'd eat.


Before bed bedtime story of Frozen.


Early morning coloring…


We read "I know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Clover" and put the things she swallowed into our old lady box as we read.


Then we did a little cut and paste sequencing activity.






And then a little water color rainbow painting...





The new face he's making….



After lunch we headed to the nursery to pick out a few vegetables for our garden this year.






We got home in time for Nolan's afternoon nap….and had lots of windows open with cool spring breezes filling our home...


By later that afternoon…Parker was starting to feel not quite 100% and so she decided to stay home and rest while Grace and Payton went with Geoff to run a few errands.  She did help me make a few green cookies for St. Patrick's Day.  It was fun to be able to spend this time with just her.





Sunday.
Sunday was a day filled with lots of cleaning.  Lots of laundry.  And a little game playing.

This was our first time playing this ABC Bingo.  They both loved it.  And I really think it's going to be good with helping Grace identify her letters.



And Bubs wanted in on the Sunday evening bubble bath, too.



And that was our Spring Break.
