Spring Break Recap--Part 1

We had a seriously crazy-busy-fun Spring Break.  It ended two days ago and I am just now feeling like I have caught up on sleep.  It was definately one of those vacations where afterwards I need a vacation to get some rest.

Here's the first of the catch-up posts:

On the first afternoon of Spring Break, I think I was more excited for the break then the boys were!  The weather was perfect, so after we picked up T-Man from school, we played outside for as long as possible.  I borrowed a DSLR camera to see if I think they are worth all the hype--to which the answer is YES!--and I've been practicing...hopefully I will get better as I force myself off of Auto mode.

T-Man was trying to find 4-leaf clovers for St. Patty's day...sorry kiddo, putting two 3-leafers together doesn't count.

Miss Banana happily read her books.

The boys picked some weeds flowers for me--aren't they beautiful?  If I had enough vases, I would fill my house with all the flowers/plants/rocks the boys find for me--their enthusiasm for each little piece of nature is contagious.  I love it!

Taking a break from practicing the bike without the training wheels.  He's almost there--he just needs to perfect steering and stopping (kind of essential).
Fearless has a very large rock collection.  It outgrew the sand bucket so we had to move it to the wagon.

Stop taking my picture, Mom.

Really, stop.

Miss B is still reading...

Mommy, check out this one--it's fascinating!!

But this one...not so much.

Over the edge it goes!

I just didn't like that one, Mom.  Sorry.

Now I'm happy again!

My sister called while we were outside to say she was heading to our parents for Spring Break.  So I decided I would go too.

That's all for today...more pictures to come!

Love the pics! Was it hard to get used to the new camera? Addy and Fearless have a lot in common! Addy's rock collection is starting to rival mine, which is really saying something. I can't wait to see more of your break! :)

Gorgeous photos. Love their eyes! I especially like the 6-leaf clover :-) is that genetically possible? Tee hee. I, too, love when our kids pick flowers or weeds or rocks for me. I always feel bad when they die. The rocks go in a special place in my garden.

When did Fearless start looking so grown up?!
