Spring Break!

Well, this Spring Break is flying by, and unlike Spring Breaks of the past, we have not been partying. Ha!
We have been going to new, fun play places every day this week though, thanks to my MIL!

The first place we went was to PLAY Activity in Roswell. It's a kid gym with trampolines, foam pits, ball pits, and gymnastics equipment like beams, bars, and other things that look like Gymboree. It was really fun and we went two days in a row from 10-2!! And you better believe that I busted a move on the trampoline and dove into the foam blocks multiple times! We took picnic lunches and had a blast! And Harrison and Emma made some older friends, lol. Their favorite part was the creative play area (video below). It was a room divided into five sections: rice table, train area, vet clinic, restaurant, and reading/home corner. The favorite was BY FAR the rice table. We may end up setting our water table up with rice so they can do this at home! Very cool. Emma really enjoyed playing restaurant-it was complete with menus, dishes and TONS of play food. She loved taking orders and making us food. She was also very partial to the vet clinic. Girlfriend loves taking care of animals.

On Wednesday we went to INK in Gainesville, GA. It's an interactive kids museum and it is SO COOL! It had all these little rooms that were different "careers" like a grocery store, bank, dentist, doctor, dress up, etc. They absolutely loved it! There is a short video below of them shopping in the store. So cool that they had a real check out belt and stuff that actually scanned the groceries! Ha!

On Thursday and Friday, we went to Catch Air, an indoor playground. It has bounce houses, a HUGE playground village thing (like in CFA except wayyyyyy bigger and cooler), a toddler area, multiple ball pits, just tons of fun stuff. We love going here, especially meeting up with friends and then going to lunch at CFA!

And PS, that dress is from the dress closet. Lest anyone
wonder why my child looks like a pioneer.

Overall, we have had a great week! I thought I was wearing them out, but these jokers have not been sleeping any longer for naps and are waking up earlier! (Dang sun rise at 6:45 today!) I am missing their school and can't wait for it to come back next week! Once this pollen dies down we can hit up more parks outside, but for now we are playing indoors. My kiddos have inherited my allergy stuff and have had disgusting noses and coughs since this mess started! I'm ready for our schedule to return to normal and for us to break out the water table and baby pool!

What have you all been up to on your "Spring Break?"
