Staycation

The weather here has been really, really beautiful this last week. Spring has come to Colfax for sure!! And we’ve been enjoying as much of it as we can!

Way back when (before we learned we had to purchase a new vehicle) we talked about going away for a short get away this weekend. Since this week was spring break for the kids and David has a lighter than usual load – but since that didn’t pan out, we decided to try and do some fun stuff around home.

So earlier in the week – we did a day swap with our friend Clayton. Luke and Avery went over to spend the day with Leslie and their buddy Clayton and then the next day – Clayton came here! They had a really good time together and there were many funny things that happened while Clayton was at our house, but the funniest would have to be that for some reason Avery decided she wanted to take off all her cloths and play in the sandbox in just her diaper. Not a great idea, but OK – it was plenty warm out for it. Next thing I know, she’s totally naked and literally covered in sand. It was like being at the beach with no waves!! The boys thought it was hysterical too!

Needless to say, she got to come in and take a bath! She was so excited to play with the boys that she refused to take a nap!! Later in the afternoon when they were all sitting resting a bit, watching some Curious George – it got very quiet – upon entering the living room, this is what I saw…
















The boys were both sitting on the sofa watching TV – and there Avery was – sound asleep on the floor! Poor thing!


We’ve also spent lots of ridding our bikes!




















































And the highlight of the week so far was our lunch date with Daddy yesterday! Where did we go you ask that was so wonderful? Chuck E. Cheese! And oh boy was it a blast! It was Daddy’s first visit – EVERY – and it’s been a long time since we had been. It was packed, but we had a really good time! I didn’t get as many pictures as I wanted too, but here are just a couple.
















The fun didn’t end yesterday! Today we plan on going to the local Farmers Market for an egg hunt with the kids, and hopefully we’ll be joining our friend Clayton there as well! Then this afternoon is the opening exhibition game for the Greensboro Grasshoppers baseball season, and we are planning on being in attendance! It’ll be Avery’s first baseball game, so we’ll see how she does with that! But I’m looking forward to a fun day!

Then of course tomorrow we’ll hunt for eggs the Easter Bunny left and see what he (or she in this case) brought in the Easter baskets! Then off to church to celebrate and praise our Risen Lord and Savior! Next will be lunch with the Winslow grandparents! Then to end the day my wonderful hubby is taking me out to dinner at an undisclosed location for my birthday! Isn’t he great!??!

I’m looking forward to spending the rest of this really wonderful weekend with my really wonderful family! I hope you plan on doing the same!

Life is great right now, isn't it?! I'm so glad! I'm also excited about the possibility of meeting up with y'all, Chanda & John, too...to do some fun stuff (in the next month or 3) we found at Pigeon Forge.

Thanks for sharing the pics!

Love y'all!
