Spring Break...part 2

More spring break pictures.

We headed to Chuck E Cheese.  This was actually the first time the boys have been.  They loved it.

Graham loved this big truck.

Until we put a token in and it started moving.  Ha.

Bowling....and all learning to share.  Well, except Harper.  She's so sweet and has that mastered.  The other 3 are getting there. ;)




Graham's favorite part...ha.


The girls loved Chuck E.  The boys...not so much!


We also attempted a group shot of the 4 kiddos.......




I love this pic that my sister took.

Thursday, we headed to the Bouncy Barn and Chick Fil A.  Which is where the epic meltdown occurred.  I'm pretty much trying to erase that lunch from my memory. :/

The kids loved the Bouncy Barn.  And Gra thought he was big stuff once he managed to climb up this slide....and then go down backwards.

Time for a trim....which has already happened. 
Their hair grows so fast and I like it long so I just barely want it trimmed above their eyes.  So I do it myself and it's hard.  Sawyer is getting better because he will sit and watch a movie while I do it.  And the obscene amount of candy I give him helps.  Ha.  But Gra is a different story.  He's at that age where he does NOT want to sit still....not even for candy or a movie.  And he tries to grab the scissors....nothing like a good challenge.

Re-fashioned Toms.  Shan and I both had a pair with holes so we covered with some chevron fabric.  We also should have taken a picture of us sewing/monogramming because we sat up every night doing that.  It's always more fun staying up late crafting with someone else....especially your sister!  And it was the only time we got any peace and quiet.  ;)

Group shot of the Spring Break 2013 crew.
 It was seriously a blast.  Although it ended with a trip to the Dr -- Graham had strep.  It was pitiful...probably picked it up at all those germy kid places we hung out at all week.  ;)  But praise the Lord for antibiotics.  He's fine now.

And we have another visitor arriving this afternoon....BeLLa.  We are so excited!

Our spring break....part 1

We had the best "spring break" last week with the Bolands visiting.  Blake headed to OKC to work and Keith was also out of town working so it was just Shan and I with all the kiddos.  It was a tad chaotic at times and I experienced the most epic meltdown in my mommyhood career....I'm just glad Shan could witness it.  Ha.  It was bad....I'm talking packed up our lunch in the middle of chick fil a, carried one child and drug another through the restaurant and to the car while everyone was staring bad.  Oh, and it was pouring down rain.  Good times, good times. 
 
But seriously the week was jam packed with fun!!!  My boys loved getting to spend so much time with their cousins.  And I of course loved all the time with my fav girls. We did lots of crafting, playing, laughing, chatting and eating.   




Finished crosses -- we did a Easter craft.  So funny how each cross totally represents each kids personality.  Yes, Sawyer's would be the one where no squares are touching...funny kid.

All that crafting made 'em hungry.  We made homemade pizzas.


My boys are bottomless pits -- they kept eating all the toppings.

We headed to the park on Tuesday.  It was the warmest day all week -- well, apparently every other mom had the same idea.  It was packed.  And it took all I had to keep up with my boys who were running around like wild indians.  I managed to snap a few good pics between keeping my eyes on Saw and dragging Graham off of the "big kid" stuff.
 











This was our attempt at a pic of all 4 kiddos.....typical!

Lots more to share from the rest of our week.....
