Spring Break (So Far!)

Well, it is Wednesday of Spring Break and we are having lots of fun!! Sunday, after our huge luncheon and Easter Egg Hunt at Church, we just relaxed the best we could to gear up for a busy week.

Monday, my friend's son was with us all day. We went to Pump It Up, where I ran into a mom I knew, and now wish I knew better, from a Mom's group I was part of. Her son and Jillian played and really enjoyed each other..(Its Wed. and she still is asking for him)....After playing for 1-1/2 hours, we went to lunch with friends to McDonalds and then back to my house. Elizabeth and Jillian played with Critter all afternoon and Elizabeth Mastered riding her 2-wheeler. She had done it before, kind of...She was scared of falling, but after a few attempts, she just took off...Very Proud Mommy Moment!!! That evening, a friend came over to color and cut my hair and her daughter played with the girls some more...Yes, my girls were entertained, truly, ALL DAY!

Another friend from preschool/church had invited Elizabeth to spend the day at Busch Gardens on Tuesday. Again, the daughter is Elizabeth's age and they get along so well. I took Jillian to play her first game of Miniature golf...After about the 8th with lots of chilly wind, she just about as through...We goofed off and finished, skipping maybe 2 holes, but it was a lot of fun. I needed some Jillian time. We went shopping, etc. and ended the day at the gym. When Elizabeth came home, she was so tired, so happy and teary eyed because her day ended. We went through the same thing after our first vacation to Disney. She had slowly realized that we would go back and the same with Busch Gardens...So all is well in her world...

The rest of the week is full of playdates and ending on Friday with a trip to Epcot and Magic Kingdom. I want to see the Flower and Garden Show, especially after seeing another blogger's post (yes, I mean you Jen) and Jillian will want to stop at Mickey's House!!!

How cool and grateful I am....to be a stay-at-home mom, be able to work and bring home a full-time salary, and still take these types of vacations for my kids...Yes, I am saying this because this week (so far) is like a dream, but not every day off with the girls are this pleasant...So I am grateful for a well-planned, well-behaved week...so far........

Well it sounds like a dream to me too!! You are really lucky - I would love to find a job with the flexibility you have. I think you have the only one - LOL. But your week sounds really wonderful so far. Good for you!

Thank you, Andrea...It has not been often that I can brag about having a good week when there was a holiday or time off....I thought today, Elizabeth was going to start to lose it, but she gained it back again and we are still on a very nice road!!!
