Well, Spring Break has come & gone.
We started Spring Break off with Alex's birthday party in Lumberton on Saturday. On Sunday, we headed back home. We made it home just as a giant rain storm blew in. It basically rained straight for the next day or 2 which meant we didn't leave the house for a couple of days. But once the rain finally stopped, the kids and I took a daily walk to the school playground. Nick even came with us a time or two.
On the last day of Spring Break, Nick & I brought the kids to the zoo.

Growling like a cougar
Addy loves to ride the carousel. But she only likes to sit on the bench, because it doesn't go up & down. Alex doesn't like to ride it though, he just likes to watch!

Nick had to "help" Addy pet the baby alligator. And by help, I mean keep her from taking the alligator from the zookeeper.

After the zoo, the kids & I washed the cars.
I find it funny that to me (and probably most adults) washing the car is a chore, but to the kids it's a ton of fun!
And that was it for Spring Break. Even though Addy was the one out of school, I think it was harder for me to get back in the school routine on Monday than it was for her :(
Luckily, there's just 9 more weeks til summer!
