Spring Break Fun 2014

26 Mar

This year we didn’t having any big plans for Spring Break and whatever we did do, we wanted it to be low cost.

To kick off our Spring Break fun, we went to a friend’s daughter’s birthday party at the skating rink! I don’t think it was my kids first time roller skating but I can’t tell you when the last time it was that they skated!

Fun, fun, fun!!!


Isn’t that just the coolest picture of all the skates?? My fave! Yes, I’m proud!


Happy Birthday, Nataliah!



I couldn’t get any good pictures of them actually skating without it being blurry so I had to make them pose, which as you can see, Jeremiah isn’t digging too much!

We hung out at my friend Ami’s house and she taught me how to do a really cute bun on my daughters hair!


I did one on my niece, too!


Super cute, hu!?!? I think so, too!

We also celebrate my SIL’s 35th birthday! It was supposed to be a surprise but we can never keep anything from her because she’s a nosey rosey!! Lol


Yes, that’s a sewing machine cake!

She just recently inherited her grandmother’s sewing matching so she’s been sewing it up lately!!!

Hey! If you want to order some really super cute coffee cozy’s just let me know and I’ll give you her info!


If you’re wondering why her hubby is holding a lighter it’s BC yours truly forgot the candles!


…. And yes, she blew out the candle… Ahem, I mean, the lighter.


Me with the Birthday girl!

Another friend of mine had 2 extra passes to a bounce house place and asked if 2 of my kiddos wanted to join them. Heck yes!!!




Can you say, jump till you can’t jump no more!!! Get out all the wiggles!

As the kids jumped till they got hungry, (literally) Claire & I got to hang out and fellowship!

After we grabbed a bite to eat at ChicfilA, I took Josh to get an ice cream at McDonald’s, because he had a $5 gift card.





… Then I took Jordyn to get a Chocolate Chip FRAP  at Starbuck’s because she won a $10 gift card there, too!!



She went in and ordered it all by herself. She’s growing up so fast!

And as I waited in the van for her, I took a selfie and text it to my hubby!


He liked it. 😀

Another thing we did during our Spring Break is, I introduced my dog, Bo, to my friend’s dog, Gabi.

It was super cute watching them play!




Gabi did a little twirl…show off!! Hehehe


Taking a small break after playing. Look at their tongue hanging out!!



Gabi knocked out after a long day of playing with my Bo.


Gabi wrote him out!!

We had so much fun that day watching our dogs… And kids… Play!

I’ve NEVER been a pet lover. It has a lot to do with the simple fact that we never had pets growing up. Sure we had a cat for a day or two, then for whatever reason we had to get rid of it. But nothing long-term.

We’ve only had Bo for a year and he’s part of the family!

That night we went to another friend’s house and fellowshipped with them and a new family from church who are from Palao.


The kids were outside playing football and once it got dark they came in and played a game of good ‘ol Monopoly!


We talked and talked and talked.

We’ve known her for over 18 years, so you can imaging all the stories that came up. And all the, remember when so and so did this or remember that.

Ahhhh, the good ‘ol days.

It’s weird saying that because when I was younger I remember all the “old” people saying that.  

Hmmmmm, what’s really going on here!?!?!

So as you can see, we had a very low cost Spring Break week, but the memories we made and the friendships we shared it with, both new and old, are priceless!

Oh, I almost forgot one more thing I did!
I kinda sorta got on a roll trying to learn new ways to fix my daughters hair, so I did Merida curls on my niece. It was Jordyn’s idea to try it on Madi first because she just LOVES  Merida!

Sweet girl.

Here’s what I did:

Are you ready for this!?!?!?


Wrapped strands of hair in flexible straws!!!

That’s it!

And this is the final product:
(2 hours later)




Su-per CUTE!!!! (And easy!)

How did YOU spend you’re Spring Break this year!?!?

    Hey girl! Sounds like you did a lot and kept busy. Awesome! Your hair is so long and BEAutiful! Brazil doesn’t have spring break but they have carnival so I guess it’s similar, a week of time off and fun. Only here a lot if businesses close to so it’s not just the kids that get time off but adults too. We found out at the end of carnival that during the day, some parks had activities for the kids. Oh well, guess next year we’ll enjoy that! I enjoyed the pics!
