SPRING BREAK!!!!

We had such a great spring break. It was so great to have Aaron home and be able to just be together for an entire week. The weather was beautiful and just what we all needed to lift our spirits. We took the kids to the Omaha Zoo and had so much fun. It was in the 70s that day and we loved every minute of it. The girls were so excited about all of the animals. they literally couldn't stop talking about them the whole way home. We stopped for dinner on our way home and they were still talking about it and laughing at their favorite animals. It was so fun to see them so excited. Lainey was so good all day and aside from stealing food from Maggie, she didn't cause any trouble! We spent the rest of our break flying kites, having picnics, going for walks, playing games, watching movies, shopping and spring cleaning. For some reason, the cleaning has already been completely undone, but we made a good effort. It felt good to be a whole family and to be able to just enjoy each other with minimal stress. Loved it!

How fun! You have such a cute family. We haven't been to the Omaha zoo but it sounds like it is worth the drive. Cute green shirts!

Well it sure looks like you guys have been having lots of fun. Surprisingly we have never been to Omaha Zoo before! Weird. But your pic are darling. We just might have to check it out one of these days. I love all your green shirts.

I LOVE that pic of Lainey and her little two teeth sticking out, absolutely darling!! It looks like you guys had a great break as well!! I also really liked the photos that you made black and white but then colored the shirts very creative!! Is it photoshop? If it is you will have to help me figure out how to do that with our photoshop!

We loved the Omaha Zoo! Don't they have some great exhibits?!? I don't blame your girls for talking and talking about it. :)We lived just up the street and went there often. It brought back a lot of fun memories seeing your pictures.

Spring Break is the best and the weather was wonderful, I just hope it gets back to that soon. We have never been to the Omaha Zoo either, something we'll have to do in the next year. Love your pictures.
