Well, spring break is officially over. We hit the ground running today with school, soccer and the dreaded homework. I have to admit I missed my buddies today! They were super sweet last week and we had so much fun. I was worried that they would be bored just hanging out around here, but we managed to find a good balance of fun activities, meeting up with friends, and relaxing at home.
We did squeeze in a last minute lake trip Friday-Sunday. The kids and I headed down late Friday afternoon, and Brian met us there shortly after. We took them to the Caldwell Zoo in Tyler on Saturday. Apparently this is becoming a spring break tradition for us- I think this is the 3rd year in a row we’ve visited? It’s a great zoo because it has a surprising number of really cool animals, and it’s small enough that you can cover the whole thing in just a couple of hours. The kids LOVE the wild bird walkabout, and Jack had fun feeding the giraffes (Isla wanted no part of that).
The goal is to get one of the birds to stand on your feed stick… there are a LOT of kids in there and it gets pretty cutthroat, lol.
Sunday was gorgeous and I don’t think any of us wanted to come home.
Sweet Chloe watching the kids ride their scooters. She loves lake trips.
Smashing confetti eggs on the tennis court, as one does.
So yeah, back to the grind today. But hey, at least the weather is nice. Hope everyone had a great spring break and an easy Monday!
