Seven days of spring break

Day one - park with the kids' bikes and library to pick out books to read while on break.

Day two - spa pools (the kids have been begging me to go swimming) and even though it's been over 6 months, by the end of the day they were both jumping in and swimming to the side. This is definitely a sign of things to come this summer.

Day three - stayed home but played with our new bubbles, super soakers and color shifter set outside in the beautiful weather. PSA: I am going to have to give a big thumb's down to the color wonder bubbles. The bubbles themselves are cool and yes, everything is washable but it is messy. The juice in the bottle is very bright in color and gets everywhere (clothes, face, hands, shoes, concrete)!

Day four - miniature golf. Joe and I got a little competitive. I lost. The kids however, had a blast.

Day five - another park for playground and baseball fun, plus we took Kuma to this dog-friendly park and let him run around the baseball field. Later that night was Kuma's last puppy class where he graduated with high honors. Seriously, the trainer let us take pictures of them with caps and even played Pomp and Circumstance when he passed out their diplomas. He is still a puppy however, so he is not fully trained. But I have the tools necessary now.

Day six - we went to see Rio at the movie theater. The weather had turned kind of chilly and windy so it was the perfect day for it.

Day seven - yet another park with Daddy and a Transformers marathon and the only day I didn't snap any pictures.

So as you can see, we were busy but not too busy. It was a very nice spring break.

Oy--those colored bubbles are horrendous! Lana was so excited about pink bubbles and then when I saw the mess, I made her put them away and she was so mad! Those are only good if you have a hose nearby.

Looks like an awesome week!
