Life Lately: Spring Break

Well, hello there!! I know it's been awhile since I've posted on the poor blog. I really need to get the hang of this.
Life is so busy and I always feel like I need to catch up! The days are just flying by and I can't catch my breath. As I'm sure that many of you can relate. Anyways, I thought I'd share a little bit of what has been going on over here.

Des had spring break a few weeks ago but the boys will start there break today. I really wished they had it at the same time then we could plan our days better. So we've tried to do some fun things after school since we can't go anywhere really far.

After school on Wednesday, we took the kids to Disneyland. It was nice to just relax and hang out with the kids.  Love Disneyland!

I saw them holding hands and I turned quickly to snap this picture before they let go but I cut off there hands......oops.  Never too old to ride the carousel!!

My sister and I took Michael to the mountains for the Junior high Winter Retreat with the church. Des went last month but this was a first for Michael. This was the longest time he's been away from home. So I was a little nervous, but he did just fine.

It was so beautiful seeing the white snow, it was like a thick white blanket.
We took some pictures ( I love this picture!!! ) and prayed for his weekend to be blessed and that we got home safely.
Driving in the snow made me a little nervous.

After church on Sunday we drove up to pick him up from camp. Since we were going up we decide to make a day out of it.

We grabbed some lunch and went on a hunt to find a nice area to play in the snow.

 Des went to take her permit driving test. And she passed!! I have mixed feelings about this. I'm happy but oh SO nervous for her to be driving. Did you notice I said I was nervous three times already....make it four. 

We went to the movies and saw OZ, it was really good!  A lot better than I thought it would be.

We had family movie night and watched Wreck it Ralph. I really like this movie and so did Daniel!!
He is just relaxin while eating his ice cream cone.

We went to a birthday party and the kids got to ride horses. Gabriel rode on a horse for the first time.

I tried to get Daniel on it, at least for a picture but he just kept shaking his head no!  Des took him to pet some animals instead. He seemed to be happier there.

My sweet gentle James liked petting the animals too!

 Enjoying these everyday moments with the kids.
(Did you notice Daniel got a haircut?) :)

I hope you are enjoying your spring break!
