Growing up, my family never took vacations during Spring Break. We lived on a farm, and since Spring Break was usually the last week of March, my dad was always busy getting things prepared for the planting season. I really didn't feel like I was missing out on much. Since I lived in a very small farming community and went to a private Catholic school, none of my friends seemed to take extravagant vacations either. Once I got into high school, some of my friends' families would go on vacations to Florida and such, but I still didn't really feel like I was missing out on much. My parents were probably grateful for that!:)
While we didn't go on vacation and part of our break was spent cleaning house or doing outside work, I can remember spending a couple days at my grandparent's house when I was younger, and once I got older we would go shopping with cousins in the big city and I would usually end up spending the last few days of my spring break with one of my cousins in a county just east of us.
We didn't travel to any beaches or big cities...well I guess we did make a trip, or four to the city...the girls still had fun!
Saturday night they stayed at their aunt Lauren's house. Their evening consisted of crafting and watching Frozen. Brad and I got to go to the mall and out to eat with some friends! Then we came back to Lauren's and picked up Jo while the older two got to spend the night. (No one seems to want to keep an 18 month old that doesn't sleep through the night. I don't know why!) :)
, Farmland. It was such a great movie. More on that later!
Horrible pic of Jennifer from Jent's Front Porch, but once again, everything's better with friends!
Chihuly's glass art work....
Ruby Bridges, Ryan White and Anne Frank and I think this might be her favorite.
Friday night B and Mel spent the night at Brad's parent's house. They had movie night Friday and then more crafting was done on Saturday!
After we left the dairy, we headed to our cattle barn to check the cattle. The girls climbed on the hay bales then we headed home for a yummy supper of grilled hamburgers. They played outside for a little while longer until it was time for Margaret to leave.
Now we are back in the swing of things as school started today. It won't be long and it will be summer break!!!
