spring break recap


While Steve was out of town over Spring Break, (six days to be exact… not that I was counting) the girls and I had some girls club fun together. 

We had a slumber party in my room, ate a lot of ice cream, played outside every single day and celebrated my sister Maggie’s birthday at a huge indoor sports facility.
Laser tag and dodge ball were involved. 

I may or may not have…
- pulled a muscle
-witnessed my dad dive during dodge ball to get an eight year old out 
-needed a sweat band
-taken laser tag very seriously while hiding in a tower gunning people down from a window like it was my job
-laughed so hard I almost peed my pants  


The girls loved the huge blow up obstacle course.


Gracie’s tiny bird legs, that she clearly did not inherit from me, could barely span to reach the next step up leading to the awesome slide.





Ella and Mia racing to the top.


And a girls club pose.  Look how sweaty and red faced they all are!


Here’s the huge playground for the younger crowd.


Boys club.


Even baby Coop had a great time!


For the rest of our daddy less Spring Break, we had super warm weather. 
Ice cream cones with Mom was a must, especially when you two big sisters ditched you to go play with the neighbor next door.  


Strini assisted me in making some easy peasy baked Ziti.  
Also known as, I don’t want to take three girls to the grocery store right now, so I’ll just enter the ingredients I already have at home into this site  and it will tell me what I can make.  Priceless.  


Daddy finally returned!  A new Alligator for Gracie and some hemp necklaces for Sophie and Mia.
Because what five and six year old doesn’t want a hemp necklace?


Daddy surprised Mia with lunch, along with her two sisters, at school.
*Note Sophie’s rocking her necklace already!


I found this cute letter to Steve in her backpack right before Steve returned and had to share the cuteness with him immediately.   


Can you guess what Mia went as on “What do you want to be when you grow up” day at school?
That’s right!  A Michigan softball player, just like Aunt Maggie!



On the final day of Spring Break the girls headed out with Daddy on their annual trip to POPtions, where the girls are able to create their very own perfect popcorn mix.  


This year the girl’s selections and flavors were a bit tastier that last years random concoctions.
Sophie selected “Oreo” and Mia chose “Pizza.”

Hope you all had a super Spring Break!!!
