We didn't have a big trip planned for Spring Break. We just hung out and had fun with a few friends locally. It was the best Spring Break! We loved it. Here are some of the highlights:
We built a fort and slept in in almost every night. The boys didn't even argue when it was time to go to bed. They looked forward to it! I caught Jonathan reading to Levi and Seth and had a to take a photo! It was so sweet! The only problem with the darn fort was that Seth kept wrecking it and I had to keep rebuilding it.
We had a play date with our good friends, the Jeromes. Jackson Jerome is in Levi's class at school and they are good buddies so we got invited over to their home. Never mind the fact that I love to hang out with Jackson's mom, Beth. Well, I didn't actually get photos of the boys playing together, but while we were at the Jeromes, my boys took the liberty of picking baskets full of avocados from the tree in their back yard without asking for permission. (that was embarrassing) Beth is so generous, she gave us all of the avocados and suggested that we have an avocado stand to sell them. The boys thought that was a wonderful idea and couldn't wait until we could do it. So Jonathan made a sign and we sold them for 25 cents each. They were gone in an hour or so. We had been collecting $ for a ward service project so the boys thought it was ok to put the avocado earnings towards the project for someone who could really use the $. They have good hearts. Thanks for the avocados, Beth!
A couple of days were spent hanging out with the Smith's. One day they came over to play at our house. We also went to the track at Fullerton College so Lisa and I could exercise and the kids played in the sandbox or whatever else they found to be interesting. The Smith's are also very generous friends and they brought a wagonful of toys to play with. When Lisa and I were finished with our workout, the kids did not want to leave, they were having so much fun together. A trip to Ikea was also an activity that we enjoyed together. Jonathan, Madeleine, Levi, and Nathan got to go to the kid's play area while, Lisa, Seth, Price, and I shopped. It is very fun to go there with friends!
Friday was warm, so we pulled out the pool to end our Spring Break on a wet note.
Sometimes, it is fun to just hang around and do stuff that you want to do but don't get to. I had a good time with the kids and we really liked sleeping in, so we were bummed that school started again on Monday.
