Our Spring Break

Last week was the boys' Spring Break. Granted, it's just from preschool and BSF, but it's still a week off of everything -- and I'm not even going to mention how this time next week will be actual Spring Break from Kindergarten for Walker. 

Last week started out cold and rainy (and just overall yucky), then turned really stormy (with two boys in our bed on Wednesday morning), and then quickly redeemed itself Wednesday afternoon through this weekend with absolutely gorgeous Texas spring weather. We spent so much time outside and couldn't get enough of the sunshine. 

Here's a bit of what we were up to: 

+ We kicked off our Spring Break with dinner on the patio -- our first of the season -- and made Natalie's Greek Chicken, which was a total hit! (And it may have been on leftover-from-Christmas plates from Dollar Tree but whatevs!) 

+ We went to our local golf course for dinner and the boys ended up getting a little golf lesson from the pro out of pure chance. It was great! 

+ We had the boys allergy tested on Monday and that was a bit traumatic, but the place we went couldn't have been better and more tailored to kids. Knox hated the Lidocaine/Saran Wrap pre-test prep while Walker (who went second on the testing, BTW) hated the actual testing part. Thankfully my mother-in-law went with me to help and that was a huuuuuuuge deal. Turns out Walker is allergic to molds and Knox trees, so we are starting allergy drops today in hopes of desensitizing them to their personal allergies and ultimately kicking them. 

+ We watched lots of "Peppa Pig" in the tent upstairs with snacks on the first few rainy days of the break. I love that Knox has a little British accent when referencing Pappa and it cracks me up. 

+ My friend Liz and her kids were on Spring Break, so we met them for a play date at KidMania (which was, in fact, MANIA!), and then went to Chick-fil-A, followed by more play  time at their house. Loved hanging with them! 

+ We visited Brandon's office and had lunch with him; the boys loved sitting at Daddy's desk making deals and trying to work just like him! 

+ We joined the rest of the DFW Spring Break crew at the Fort Worth Museum of Science + History, which was crazy crowded, but fun. Since we're members, we were able to skip some of the craziness and instead used our IMAX passes to see "Backyard Wilderness." It was the boys' first IMAX experience and while Walker loved it, Knox wasn't a fan. ;) 

+ We also had super lazy days at home, playing lots of board games, watching lots of movies and playing outside. 

+ We had Brandon's parents over for dinner, as well as our friends over for dinner + play time. 

+ On St. Patrick's Day, we had green eggs and ham for breakfast, went to church, took naps and played outside pretty much all day. It was a great way to end our Spring Break! 

This week has given me a little tease of summer, where we can sleep in, not pack lunches, not be out the door by 8 a.m. and just generally have a more lax schedule. 

Hope y'all have a great week!
