Spring Break

Wednesday, March 27, 2013 by Leslie Paladino

Last week was Spring Break for the kids.  The weather outside didn’t feel much like Spring but we were definitely glad for the break.  Now that Gabby is in full time school it was so nice to have her home and just get to enjoy being with the kids without having a schedule to keep. 

For the most part we took it easy but on Friday we drove to Tulsa and stayed overnight at a hotel with an indoor pool then went to the Oklahoma Aquarium the next day.  The kids loved staying in a hotel and Gabby was so glad to get back in the water and swim.  I have a feeling we’re going to be spending a lot of time at the pool this Summer.  Peter stuck his toes in but decided it wasn’t for him.  The aquarium was pretty crowded with the cold/wet weather outside and Spring Break combo but we had a great time and the kids got to see a lot of new things.  Seeing some of those fish made me realize how creative God was when He made ocean creatures.  There are some truly amazing things swimming around out there. 

Swinging at the park.  Even mommy got into it.  I forgot how much fun it is.  Smile

They even got to see cousin Arleigh and Drew. 

Mommy and Gabby fixed each other's hair.

This is right before they fed the sting rays which was Gabby’s favorite part because Daddy accidentally stuck the food in the sting rays gill or eye or some unknown orifice (but in his defense the sting ray really did swim right into it).  Smile
