Spring Break Update

 It is Wednesday of our spring break week, meaning the fun is almost half over.  Here is Sydney at Lacrosse.  I'm sure she's in  there somewhere.
 Here is Anna at Lacrosse.  Kurt had to take her while I was with Ryan at Mathcounts.
 Here is Ryan at Mathcounts.  It was at the Disney Swan and Dolphin Resort this year.  Probably nicer than the Doubletree of last year.
 Ryan had to miss the daytime performance of the school play, but we got back just in time for the evening show of Mulan Jr.  He had a super time and was all excited about going to Steak and Shake after.
 Then bright and early the next day, I was up to take Anna to the Orlando Science Center.  I forgot to take any pictures during, but we had ice cream and bowling afterwards.  River wasn't in the competition, but he came to be supportive.
 Then, finally, we were able to start the actual spring break activity --  camping!  Day one started with hiking.  Here we are on balanced rock, which isn't quite so balanced as it used to be.
 Each day ended with 'smores of course.  So many 'smores!  Every meal was cooked over the fire.  We all smell like smoke now, but in a good way.
We took a break from the camping to take a boat out on the gulf, no fish were caught, but it was lots of fun.  And so now we are home again to rest up from our vacation.  While the laundry works its way through the cycle and the kids settle back into home again, I think I'll go remember how my sewing machine works.

Sounds like you are really enjoying your break. We have one more day of school before our break starts. Tomorrow is a field trip with Aidan's class to see Cinderella while Em has an easter egg hunt at school.

Ha ha. "A rest from Vacation". Happens so often, doesn't it. You run around like mad to make a holiday happen, then do heaps of activities while you are away, then you have to drive home. And collapse in a heap. LOL
Looks like it was a lovely camping trip.

Ah the smell of a good campfire! It's been years since I camped out overnight. Your post brought back some fond memories. So glad to hear it was a good time and enjoyed by all.
