The cold weather came just as we started Spring Break so we weren't able to get out much. I mostly tried to find ways to keep the taters entertained in their rooms so I could alternate between watching episodes of PLL and staring at the wall in silence. That didn't work out as well as I had planned so we found some fun things to do indoors instead. Below is a little review of what Spring Break looked like at the House of Farrer.
The boys first float/fish/camp trip of the season. They went down to the Buffalo river. A little cooler than planned, but once B plans something it is going to happen. The show must go on or something like that.
M's first overnight at a friends house. How cute are these two? SO thankful it was his close friend Knox whose momma is also my good friend. I didn't sleep at all and checked my phone several times in the middle of the night thinking I might need to race to Bella Vista to get my baby boy who just couldn't sleep without his momma around. Turns out my "baby boy" is almost seven and doesn't think about me at all when he is having a blast at a friends house. Sniff.
First time to eat at Mellow Mushroom. Ummmm...YUM! They have those huge soft pretzels with cheese as an appetizer. That's really all you need to know.
B worked a couple of double shifts so the kids wanted to have a "celebration" for him one night when he got home. They drew pictures and we baked a cake. The plan was to hide and surprise him, but when I saw M running around saying "caw caw" I didn't think anything of it. Six year old boys do some weird things...I'm used to it. Turns out the "caw caw" was the signal that B was coming. Oops. I think he was still surprised.
The grand finale was a Chuck E Cheese birthday party for one of our family friends. We said goodbye to Spring Break with cotton candy goo on our fingers and plastic frogs in our pockets. What more could you ask for? Ok...maybe there are some better things, but if you knew how much my kids LOVE cotton candy you would understand my thinking. :)
Talk to ya soon,
