It's A Bright, Bright Sunshiny Day

Yep, I feel like I should burst out singing that song. Haha! Seriously, it has been absolutely gorgeous today and every day so far on my Spring Break 2012. I heard a big change is coming tomorrow though, so I am just enjoying it while I can.

Yesterday I spent lots of time just reading and cleaning and spending time outside. When I am at home, Rocky follows me everywhere and is my little buddy all day long. I always say that our theme song is Stuck Like Glue by Sugarland! Haha!

Yesterday Ashley and I also decided to take David to Monkey Joe's to play for a little while. Ummm...he was NOT a fan. He started crying the minute they put the ID bracelet on his little ankle. And it was pretty much down hill from there. I think it was just too much for him. He felt insecure in those bouncy things and he was scared of the giant blow-up Incredibles dad that was there. Ashley even tried to get in with him, but he was clinging to her like a little monkey. Ashley was having a hard time standing up with him clinging to her like that so she started laughing hysterically. That made it even worse...David was crying and Ashley was laughing so hard she couldn't stand up. Oh my gosh...needless to say we just decided to leave and go get some lunch.

He liked that much better! He loved playing with the straw and trying to stick it back in the hole in the lid. He was so focused on doing that.

Here he is saying he's "all done"!

He is a mess!

Last night Steve and I were planning to go to PF Changs to use a gift card we got for Christmas. Then it turned out my parents had the exact same plan, so we ended up going out with them for a double date! It was fun. We always have alot to talk about when we are with them. We just took this picture with my iphone, so it is a little blurry.

After dinner we came home and I watched Dancing With The Stars. We kept one eye on the Baylor women's game. I am so not into women's basketball, but I am proud of them for winning 40 straight games! That is quite an accomplishment.

Today I did a little shopping for some Easter stuff and Ashley and David came over to play on the porch for a while. And Mark got home this afternoon for his Easter break. We ate dinner outside and went on a walk together. I tried another one of the Pinterest recipes I had. It was Ginger-Cilantro Tilapia.

It was just okay. None of us loved it. It was too salty! If you try it, use less soy sauce. I think that would really help.

Tomorrow Laura gets home and then Lindy will be here Friday. So all my little chicks are flying back into our nest. I am looking forward to doing lots of Easter stuff over the next few days. I love this time of year!


  1. Sounds like you are having a great Spring Break! Our weather has been really nice too but the rain and colder weather is supposed to set in tonight. When I say colder I'm talking 60's. We have been enjoying the 80's for the past few days!

    What a cute pic with his little hands suggeting he's all done. How precious!!!!

    Hope you enjoy the rest of your week and weekend. I love this time of year too :)

  2. I had a student tell me the other day about Monkey Joe's. I've never heard of it or been before!

    Easton loves to play with a straw and lid, too!

  3. The real question is: Have you started Hunger Games?? :)
