not sure how we already passed spring break and are already almost to summer...
but alas it's true.
time truly flies by.
we decided to explore some local activities this spring break.
i packed the kids and a cousin into the old burb
and drove down to the biosphere II
biosphere I is the earth... in case you didn't know that.
jk, i had no idea and felt a little embarrassed after i asked.
anywho, it was pretty cool. the kids all enjoyed it.
and the drive there was pretty too.
not much along the way though... postponing lunch until we got closer wasn't the best idea i've ever had.
we cleaned that car of every last chip, bar & nut we could find.
our next adventure was tonto natural bridge near pine, az
it was the perfect length of hike for the family.
and so so beautiful.
we even found a little waterfall... not the kind of thing one usually stumbles upon in arizona.
i highly recommend this trip for families with all ages.
next up was pi day.
i took a couple girls and a cousin to a show at the herberger theater.
a friend was in a contest. they had singing, dancing and acting portions of the contest. our friend was a singer.
it was very exciting.
and of course we had to find a cute little pie place afterwards.
they had a special.
all slices of pie were
we ordered one of each.
our fav was the blueberry crumble.
they had a mounted police training unit graduation in our neighborhood.
i cried a little when the horses processed out with the flag to the national anthem and
my cute boy had his little hand over his heart.
it was so sweet.
here they got to participate as an unruly crowd. they demonstrated how they would control and back up the crowds.
this little hot tamale is the owner of the gym where my mom and i sweat our booties off.
well that's the goal anyway.
usually we just die laughing.
anywho... she participated in a
BODY BUILDING CONTEST!
it was amazing. we witnessed her transformation and saw the determination and commitment it took.
we were so proud.
i cried a little when she came out in her little bikini.
not to mention she is a mother of
and nursing a baby.
my baby bro had a promotion ceremony.
we had vehicle day at preschool.
i didn't cry that day.
the boys love it so much.
we visited the science museum... R's favorite part was sliding through the digestive tract. complete with surround sound gurgling and fart noises.
he was in heaven.
he came barrelling through in hysterics every time.
i tried to sleep in a few times.
but that didn't happen.
another spring break crossed off the calendar. it was nice to stay close to home and have a week of cleared schedules. we also loved having picnics at the parks with friends. and also one of my FAVORITE parts was seeing cinderella in the theaters with the family. it was SUCH a good movie. i am so happy with the way the movie was portrayed. it was beautiful and good. i can't wait to see it again!
now to plan out that summer....
