I am going to keep this short and simple. My niece’s spring break was 2 weeks before ours, so she came and spent 5 days with us. We had a blast. We went to the movies, went shopping, got pedicures, ate out a lot… but that’s not all we did…
We also went to Sky Zone (the fun trampoline place), the World of Coke and 6 Flags. They were our bigger outings.
I think we know how to have a good time especially considering our time was so limited. Remember, my kids had school…although they alternated taking a day off since they haven’t missed any school, giving them each some special bonding time with their cousin!
I haven’t edited the sky zone pics and I know you want to see our spring break…so I will leave you with these…. short and sweet, a sampling, just like I said!
as to how many jelly beans are in this jar?
This was a fun little thing to whip up. Shawn took it into his office for his team to guess. You know, the little things go a long way…and I have to say, they were so excited for this fun little contest… And since I”m posting after the fact, I can tell you there is no filler (anything hidden in the middle of the jar) so the magical number was 1771.
Always busy getting our craft on over here…
Sydney had a power point presentation to do. Yes, 2nd graders doing power point presentations, my have things have changed even since my boys have been in 2nd grade. The kids were able to pick their topic off a list the teacher had supplied and Sydney chose the moon.
While she was doing research she found this cute video…and it’s what she used to end her presentation. I was singing this song for like a week. Not joking!
A friend of mine was co-chair for the international festival at Sydney’s school. Since nobody had volunteered to represent the USA, she asked me if I would. Although our weekends are generally busy, we happened to be free that day so Shawn and I decided we’d do it.
I’m glad we did. It was a lot of fun. I did’t take many pics because we were busy the whole time. It was a very well attended event, not sure the exact number but I know that over 400 tickets were sold, not counting the volunteers. About 15 different countries were represented, all with loads of info and tons of great food. You definitely ate your way around the world– my kids loved this (well the 2 that came, 2 had other commitments) Oh, and there’s more, there was entertainment. Definitely kept the energy high!
We served…well of course, the all american apple pie
Sydney loved getting henna and bindi’s
