Breakin It

As in Spring Breakin...another week of vacation behind us. It was nice and relaxing, no big plans. We're saving the big trip for next year! I enjoyed having some days to myself to purge the junk that has accumulated in our house. Took full advantage of daycare services...and only felt a small twinge of guilt! We were very lucky to have people come and visit us here in Webster. On Tuesday Karen and Kath brought their kids and we hung out at the Strong Museum of Play. Jack was a little on the tired side so it was a short trip, but still good times! I love when people come to visit us! Mya had a great time with Jack and "Leese" and we hope to see them again soon!

Mya still needed her mommy (who needs a serious tan!)

Then we got a special visit from the Flatau Clan. They came up Tuesday night and we cooked up some great food and had some good laughs. After the kids went down Corey met up with some friends for drinks which left Mar and I to get some shopping done, without kids. Twas great I tell you. And what do you think we did on Wednesday? Yep Yep...back to the Museum! I had my fill by the end of the day but we still had tons of fun with Mya's cousins. We hope they come back real soon!

In all it was a wonderful and SHORT week off! Next up, back to work and Matt's 4th knee surgery!

Spring Awakening

We had a great weekend! Matt's parents came up to visit, after a long winter trip to Myrtle Beach. We hadn't seen them since Thanksgiving! Matt put his dad to work right away so the girls got to enjoy some walks and shopping. On Sunday we spent most of the day outside working around the house and in the yard. There was a lot of clean-up to do. It was still pretty chilly despite the bright sunshine. We need warmer weather soon!!

Happy Easter!

A little picnic lunch - 86 degrees on April 3, 2010

Couldn't have asked for a better Easter weekend! Record temperatures and well behaved kids. It felt like a July afternoon! We got to spend the day with my family and all the kids and we had a great time. Saturday morning we hung out and soaked in some sun, then met my brother and sister at the Botanical Gardens. We we feasted on good Polish eats and lots of chocolate!

Mya and Aiden

Finally got to see the Easter bunny!

Thanks for all the great Easter treats! We are in detox now :) I didn't get any pictures of Mya finding her Easter basket this year. She hurt her leg and it was a crazy morning. She was spoiled usual!
