If Spring Breaks, Don't Try to Fix It

I can't believe I used to dread Spring Break.  I wonder if it had  anything to do with five little kids at home who all had their own ideas about recreation, limited funds and a husband who had to work through it?


Things have improved.



This year we visited another planet

































called Amococo.


When we returned to earth we went shopping at the Gap


which caused the children to jump for joy


Grandma Larainy jumps for joy for other reasons.

Oh how adorable is that sweet baby?
I want to just hug and squeeze those cheeks.
It looks like lots of fun y'all had on your little spring break.

Oh my gosh!!! the GAP holds special memories for us on a trip home from school way back when....that's exactly the building we were waiting in for a tire fix (very cozy laundermat)

Aah, lovely Spring Break pictures. Your kids are very good jumpers - I guess it's all the trampolining. x

I'm curious if CPS might be interested in the fact that you take your kids into the middle of nowhere land, make them stand on a cliff and tell them to jump. Looks like a great time was had by all.

I too love the baby picture! I am going to see my fairly new great grandaughter on the 27th of this month!! I am so excited to see her.

Your trip sounds wonderful. I'm sure a great time was had by all.

Spring Break with only two kids who can wipe their own bums sounds like heaven. (tmi, sorry)
