Spring Break Review

Alas, Spring Break has come and gone again. It was nice while it lasted, 
but now it's back to the real world. 
It was nice to sleep a little later (yes, 7:00 a.m. is late!), get in a little retail shopping,
take Chandler for his first dental visit, 
play with bubbles and sidewalk chalk,
read lots of books and sing lots of songs,
 eat some yummy yogurt from Race Trac with my little man, 
and get a few things done around the house
like cleaning out the garage
in preparation for a future yard sale. 

We were also able to squeeze in a short and fun trip to Greenville.
Thursday was rainy and cold, but that didn't keep us from exploring the
awesome interactive Children's Museum downtown.
We all had fun climbing walls, pretending to be astronauts, construction workers, and farmers,
lifting ourselves with pulleys, and generally being silly together.
We even got to see real firemen and firetrucks 
when we had to evacuate the building due
to the emergency door being opened!

Drury Inn saved us from having to get back out in the cold 
as we enjoyed hotdogs in the lobby for supper
and a swim in the nice pool.
After we warmed back up,
we even had popcorn for a
bedtime snack!

Thankfully, Friday's weather dawned much fairer than Thursday's,
and we were able to venture out to the zoo and playground.
We all had a blast together, 
and we had time to see most of the animals
twice in the two hours we were there. 
The zoo and the park were both fabulous!
Not only is is a little smaller than Zoo Atlanta (which is great for little ones),
but it's also less expensive,
and the park is mostly covered, which would be perfect
for those hot summer days outside. 
We will definitely
be going back!

After playing hard,
we fed our tummies at Sticky Fingers
and headed home, glad to have had the chance to spend some time together
as a little family.
Chandler and I were so tired that we both slept most of the way home.
I'm sure Brent enjoyed the peace and quiet!

I am so thankful that I had the chance to spend 
Spring Break with the ones I love.
It was definitely refreshing!
These little breaks are what keep me going!
