guess what? it's spring break!

Yup, my kids are home all week. 

Patrick is still swamped at work and the weather has been mostly crap.  We are having a pretty good week, though.  (Thank God.)  Monday was overcast but warm and we had a great hike to Picnic Point.  I needed that and it was a great way to start our week.  Tuesday was sunny but bitterly cold and we went swimming (at an indoor pool) and out to lunch.  (out to lunch = mcdonald's)  :)  Yesterday we went to the Children's Museum with our friends and then had them over for a couple hours to meet the hamsters.  (Ruby got her hamsters last weekend!)  Today we are having a lazy morning (I am on my 4th book of the week...can you say escape mechanism??  :)  I love reading so it's a good way to take care of myself.)  and going out for a while this afternoon.  Tomorrow we are going to Milwaukee!  Whew!  I have also confirmed a Door County rental for August and started nailing down dates for a camping trip with our friends. 

I have to be honest.  Seeing all the Spring Break trips start popping up on my facebook feed was hard.  I have been struggling with the weather for this past month (with lots of the country, I know) and I just felt JEALOUS.  :(  I stayed away until I was in a better mental place and did what I could to make sure we had a fun week together.  Sleeping in, staying up late, not having has really been a nice break.  We will have quite a few get-aways this summer so I am focusing on that and it's helping.  I also met Wendy at the track last Sunday for my inaugural run of the season.  A little exercise in the sunshine with a friend helped my mood a lot.  I know spring and warm weather will come.  I know we have everything we need + so much more.  I am so thankful for the ways God takes care of me/us.  I also know that comparison is the thief of joy because I read it on pinterest.  ;)  (it's so true, though!)

Anyways, here are some pictures from Picnic Point.  I love that place.

 This was on our way back.  I had a roll of Rolos in my pocket and used them as incentives the whole way.  :)  Worked like a charm but I wish I had had 3 more.

So tell me, have you had spring break yet?  Did you go somewhere awesome or have to create a little awesome yourself?  :)  



    My spring break was plowing snow twice today. Once at 6AM moving about 14" that fell over night and then at 1PM when it finally quit and I plowed another 3" out of the way.'Will it ever end?
