spring break day 3

I thought it would be fun to take the kids to Busch Gardens for the first time this year.  We decided to go ahead and get passes because they pay for themselves in two visits!  Jason took the day off yesterday and we headed to Williamsburg. 
The kids had so much fun!

We can't wait to go back!

We went to our favorite BBQ place on the way home and then dropped the kids off with my parents so we could go on a date night with some friends!

Nothing like shooting guns on date night!

Guns scare me to death, but I play along.

And I'm not that bad either!  If I do say so myself!

Spring break during the day for the kiddos, spring break for the adults by night!

The kids are spending the day with MeMa today so there probably won't be a day 4 post.  I'll be busy tackling my to do list while they're gone!

spring break day 2

Emmy's only request for spring break was a trip to the Children's Museum!!
Fun on the carousel. 

One kid enjoys crafting more than the other, ha!


Baby dinosaur.

Another baby dinosaur.

Riding the dinosaur.

Someone from the Virginia Living Museum came with a few animals.  The kids were able to pet a rabbit.

After the Children's Museum we headed to Chick Fil A for lunch and the to Carpool to redeem a gift card!  The kids enjoyed watching the car go through!!

We've got lots of fun in store for tomorrow!!

spring break day 1

Jason was off today for "Easter Monday" so we were able to have a family fun day.  We had an early lunch at the Dairy Bar and the boys enjoyed their milkshakes!
The kids meals came with smiley fries!  They weren't all that smiley, ha!

We went to Maymont park to see the animals and got a great workout from all the walking.  The kids definitely earned their treat from the Kona Ice truck!

Family selfie at the top of the waterfall.

I love days like this!

Easter fun

We had a fun filled Easter weekend! 
We went to an annual egg hunt at the Lassiter's on Saturday morning.

Bryce found some tricky ones!

Third and final hunt of the season.  We have plenty of sweet treats to show for them!

We went to the Shipley's Saturday night for our annual egg dyeing fun!

It takes lots of concentration!

If I could just freeze time and that smile.  This little boy lights up my life!

All the pretty eggs!  (Notice the missing tooth!  It was a big night!)

I may have had a little too much fun with Easter baskets this year!  We get enough candy at the egg hunts that I got creative and went a little overboard.

I love getting to shop for a boy and a girl!

It was a cold and rainy day, but it was still a great day to celebrate our risen Lord!

Hope everyone had a Happy Easter!

school Easter parties

Emmy had her Easter party and hunt at school on Thursday.  She was so excited to hunt for her eggs.
We had lunch and did a craft before heading home for spring break!

Bryce had his Easter party and hunt on Friday.  It was also picture day so I sent him in his fancy clothes.  I'm really hoping his shirt was better tucked in for the picture.  I forgot to snap a pic before he left for school.

After a quick outfit change, he was ready for his egg hunt!

His class had snack and played Easter bingo to round out the party!

1st lost tooth

Bryce FINALLY lost his first tooth!
Bryce's tooth has been loose since September.  It had just gotten wigglier in the last week.  A few days later, it was ready to come out!  Jason pulled it out with just a little tug and Bryce was so excited!

We read a tooth fairy book before bed and put his tooth in the special tooth fairy giraffe he got as a baby!  He was excited to get a $1 the next morning!

last week/end

Bryce started gymnastics a few weeks ago.  The gym is a mad house in the evenings and it's hard to find a place to stand or sit, but I did manage to capture this picture of Bryce on the rings last week. 
Emmy missed a nap for some reason last Tuesday and ended up sleeping in the car at Bryce's baseball practice that evening.

Last Wednesday was a warm day and the temperature didn't drop too much after the sun went down so Jason and I spent some time on the deck!

My lucky leprechauns!

We finally had some down time on Friday night so we went out for frozen yogurt before heading out for a fun night of arena racing.

The kids enjoy the local arena racing at our coliseum.  We hadn't been this year and the season is almost over so we went before it was too late!

Fun times!

We had our annual egg hunt at church on Saturday.

Emmy invited a friend from school to join us!


Jason was with Bryce in his section so I missed my picture opportunities with him and all his friends!

Hope everyone has a great Easter week!
