Spring Break. . .

Where to begin?? Well, Spring Break started and ended with birthdays.

Monday was a very busy day! Our friends Jake and Ella Kate came over in the morning to play. Boy did they play...I didn't realize Brynn had sooo many toys. They played very well together...no one was left out and there was not much tattling. Tattling has become a new thing in our house. Brynn thinks she needs to tell me EVERYTIME Addie or someone else does something that Brynn thinks is not ok. It is getting a bit annoying but we are working on this. Anywho back to the story at hand.

Ella and I played dress up. Doesn't she look beautiful in her crown?
Jake and Brynn cooked us lunch. Very appetizing!

After the Waddells left, we got ready for Zachary's birthday party at Pump It Up! Brynn had been looking forward to this for awhile. All day long I kept hearing "Are we going to Zachary's party NOW?" We finally made it there and it was so much fun...for the kids and the adults.

Wednesday, I took the majority of the day off to spend alittle alone time with Brynn. Surprisingly my good child was back. The Brynn before Addie that is. No whining, no clinging, she actually listened, and did what I asked her to do!! Wow, I couldn't believe it. We went to Monkey Joe's with some friends from church. We were there for a couple hours. The kids played nonstop while the moms talked. A great time for all!

Saturday, was Ella Kate's princess party. Brynn had been looking forward to dressing like a princess all week. We went to the party early to help get things ready. Brynn and Ella Kate were both dressed as Cinderella. The party was so fun. Rhonda did a great job. Everything was pink just right for all the princesses. Pink cupcakes, pink cookies, pink yogurt, and pink lemonade. The girls made wands, had their nails painted and had their hair curled. They got the royal treatment.

Rhonda made the cake!

Brynn LOVED those cookies...

and...

Ella Kate LOVED those cupcakes!!

Sunday, we went to Brandon's parent's after church. Brynn played outside riding her bicycle and power wheel. I will have pictures soon.

I was sad for spring break to come to an end. I sure did enjoy sleeping in but summer will be here soon and I can't wait!!

I can't wait until next Spring Break. Hopefully, we will be going on a trip to a magical place in Flordia...if I can talk Brandon into it!!! Let's keep our fingers crossed!!!

I am so glad that you had a great spring break, but all good things must come to and end. I really hope that you can talk Brandon into going to the magical place with us. I can't wait to get back from our trip in August so I can start planning our next trip for Spring Break.
