Spring Break Week 1

Maybrie and I had a two week spring break from school... woo hoo!!!  Friday before the break our school kicked the vacation off with a Beach Day and all school dance party. Maybrie and I dressed up and of course Thomas wanted to put his sunglasses on too!
Our break started with a blizzard on Sunday... I looked out our window at the snow and thought, "Something is wrong with this picture?!"
Lately we've been finding Thomas asleep on the floor right inside his door like this...
On Monday I took the kids out to play in the snow. It was Thomas's first time. He just loved making footprints running up and down the sidewalk, and when he reached the deeper grass areas, he gave me a distressed look like this!

Maybrie was thrilled to make a snow angel and snowman (or watch me do it!).
One of my favorite words Thomas says now is Jesus, and I often find him pulling his Jesus book off the shelf and saying his name with every picture. So sweet!
Finally made a Costco trip, something I have really missed since working full-time. Here are my cute little helpers slurping up their favorite... berry smoothie!
We also spent several hours at our favorite- The Children's Museum. It was packed because of spring break, but that wouldn't stop Maybrie! The kids and I still had a blast as always. We enjoyed checking out the new Geckos exhibit and the special limited time spring break Superhero exhibit. It's fun to see the new things they explore each time, and how they actually play together now.

One of the best from mine and Brian's childhood... TMNT!
Gotta love Han Solo
The actual costume Channing Tatum wore in G.I. Joe
The cutest super hero there BY FAR!
I couldn't get this guy to stop running in his cape!
The cape Christopher Reeve wore in Superman
Hot Wheels is still one of their favorite parts to visit.
Thomas loves to hoard the cars as kids drop them down the race track.
This is new in the lobby... Bumblebee from Transformers, pretty cool.
Maybrie makes the cutest transformer.

On Friday we dyed Easter eggs as a family.

On Friday night I surprised Brian with a special "dental school acceptance celebratory date" to The Mindtripping Show downtown. It was a blast! We laughed like crazy and had our minds tripped a little bit too. I highly recommend it if you're ever in Indy!
On Saturday morning the kids found their baskets filled from the Easter bunny and we enjoyed an Easter egg hunt with our ward members in our neighborhood. I made prize eggs and suggested donuts and milk, patterned after the Northridge Easter egg hunts I grew up with. It was a huge success!

Then we headed to the historic Hoosier Gym in Knightstown, IN for our friend Dennis Gillespie's birthday. It is the school gym where the movie Hoosiers was filmed. It was really cool to see. They have kept it up really well. Thomas was in ball heaven! It was a great afternoon with friends, and a fun way to kind of say good bye to the Gillespie's who will be graduating and moving next month. :(

The guys pretending to be the defeated basketball team from the movie!

Damon Gillespie... such a cutie!
Our family
An Easter egg hunt and running around the gym for two hours wore this little guy out! He tried to nap on a ball! :)
We went from a blizzard at the beginning of the week to a beautiful sunshiny day at the end of it. The kids thoroughly enjoyed playing in our backyard for the first time this year all afternoon.
Oh how I love this little boy! I LOVE love LOVE his "Cheese" face! So darn cute!
It was a great, fun-filled week.
