Spring Break

The boys got a whole week off for Spring Break again this year.  Unfortunately, Derek had a Convention for work, and spent the week in Anaheim without us -- but he wasn't at Disneyland and so we had more fun.  We spent a lot of time just being at home, or off in the neighborhood with friends.  Jake and I had a Lord of the Rings marathon.  ***spoiler alert*** The good guys eventually won against all of those scary, creepy looking characters.

Uncle Jordan was in Anaheim at convention too and so Angela and her kids were good enough to have an adventure with us on Wednesday -- the cold day of spring break.  We went to Hang Time -- a room full of trampolines.  I have one picture, but it's so blurry it's not worth posting.  The kids did lots of awesome tricks, and Connor went on a hot streak with a basketball.  His dunks were great.

Thursday Angela and I ditched our kids and went out to dinner -- since there wasn't going to be date night with our husbands!  I suggested we go shopping and buy matching shirts, but we didn't do that.  It was nice to have some good company for the evening!

Finally, we had an adventure with cousins at the park on Friday (Angela and Megan's kids).  It was a really pretty day, and I managed to get two pictures -- both of Dan.  We all played tennis, Dan went on a bike ride on the bike trail, Connor played soccer, and Dan and Jake enjoyed some playground tag.

Spring break was after Preference, but before Jake's concert :-)  I forgot to mention that I found out about Jake's concert the day before it happened from his teacher.  We're working on that communication thing!

Sounds like you made good use of spring break and the weather looks amazing. Girl time is the best but spending a beautiful day outside with the kids is right up there too! Dan is cute as ever!
