Spring Break 2015

What a great Spring Break we had surrounded by family & friends!  Movies, sleepovers, play dates, lunch dates, dinners, birthday celebrations, swimming, history lessons & a fun game of BeanBoozled. (more on that at a different time)

Valerie & her boys came in Wednesday & we went to Pappasito's for dinner.  Table for 13 please! (Don't you know we travel in a herd?!?!)  The food was delicious, the Mariachi band was great & the kids had fun playing with their tortilla balls (while Maggie was eating hers!).

Thursday, we went down to Pleasure Pier in Galveston.  I'd never been there before & it was really fun!  Not surprising, Izzy didn't want to ride anything fast or semi-scary.  Also not surprising, Maggie did!

Friday, we went to the San Jacinto Monument & Battleship Texas.  I hadn't been there since I was a kid & it was really neat to walk around the Battleship & think about how people lived there, what they went through, etc.  After we got home, the kids enjoyed the hot hot tub and freezing pool.  We found 2 snakes doing backstrokes in the pool, so once Bo saved the kids from that, they were able to swim. :-) We also grilled burgers for dinner to celebrate Luke's 5th birthday.  Luke almost didn't make it for his cake since his eyes were swelling shut from exhaustion & chlorine, but he survived!
Yeah, we're that family that "holds" monuments & does "King of the Wooooorld!" :-)

Saturday evening, we went to my Aunt Jenny's house to celebrate her 60th birthday!  This lady right here is my mom's youngest sister & has always been like a 2nd mom to us 3 girls.  Valerie missed the party since she went back to Austin that morning, but we had a great time visiting & celebrating...and watching the fireworks her friends got for her.  (Not very often you see legit fireworks going off for a birthday party, never know what'll happen in the country!) ;-)

We had an amazing & busy week & the kids were NOT ready to go back to school today!  Can't blame them though...I wasn't ready to wake up at 5am today either!
