Jake flew out to his dad's for the week, but he managed to fit in a fun sleepover with Josh before he left. They stayed up late munching on pizza and ice cream, watching movies and playing video games...then, they got up to play a few games of laser tag on Saturday before we left for the airport.
A couple little ones were sad to see big brother go...
I surprised Brooklyn with a girls day on Sunday after church. She put on her favorite Elsa dress and brought a few of her "friends."
We picked up her friend Madison to see the Cinderella movie and have a girls sleepover. My favorite motto - "Have courage and be kind." (Along with "Love God, love people.") So, so good.
Just a couple of crazies over spring break. :)
We spent one day at the Adventure Science Center.
Our first laser show "Dream to Fly" in the planetarium - according to Connor, it was the best movie ever!
A trip to the library isn't complete without taking a walk in the park, throwing rocks in the pond and checking out the ducks.
Brooklyn had a sleepover with cousins at their house and playtime at Dave + Buster's. We met up with them and spent the day at Opry Mills.
The talking tree at the Rainforest Café - a little scary, but it's always a favorite.
We checked out the bunnies and played with all the fun toys at Phillips Toy Mart.
Took the kids to another mall to play and eat ice cream for dinner...
And I caught this on the way home:
These moments may be fleeting, but I savor the times when my kids get along and love each other well.
The next couple of days will be spent recovering from my respiratory/eye infection, working on some spackling + sanding around the house, prepping the walls for paint and preparing our hearts for this big, important celebration coming up - Resurrection Sunday!
