As most of you know the kids and I took a little vacation over spring break. We went with my parents to visit my sister and her family in TX. My kids got out of school on Thursday March 20, 08 and we left shortly after they got home to head to my parents house.. Friday we drove and drove, Saturday we drove and drove and got to my sisters about Dinner time.. You can see the few pictures I took from those days(day 1, 2 and 3 of spring vacation) right HERE

After playing Monday morning and early afternoon.. We all at lunch and then took my sister peddle boat out to the big lake about 5 minutes from her home if even that far. here is a slide show of that.

After getting back from the lake.. My sister and I put Little E and Little Man down for there late naps. While Sweet Pea and A went and played and Princess and Mr Man went fishing at my sisters neighbors house with my dad. These are a few of the pictures of them fishing.

That night we had a lovely dinner of chicken breast with spaghetti .. Then got all the kids bathed and ready for bed. A had to go to school Tuesday morning her spring break was the week before my kids. So when my sister put her girls to bed.. I took my kids up into there media room and we watched movies on there big screen which is the one wall in there media room sort of like what you see in a movie theater.. My kids just thinks that is the coolest thing ever.. I find it very cool myself :) and that is how we spent Monday of our spring break.
Some time here in the next few days I hope to get my how we spent Tuesday of spring break post posted..
