Spring Breaks "Stuffs"

Thursday, Friday and Saturday of last week, the Patrick clan (my dad and step mom, Kristi and the girls, the twins and me, and my brother and sis-in-law) visited at my dad's in Columbus for some fun-filled happenings. It was simple, laid-back, spring fun. Here are a few pictures capturing the moments...

Natalie, Alyson, and the twins had their first fishing experience. They all caught a fish!

(really, it's just a boiled hotdog....)
~Swing Fever~
these swings were made by my grandad for Kristi and me when we were little. Now, the second generation of grandkids are enjoying "Greatman's" craftsmanship. They have brought many hours of fun over the years. They now hang from a big tree at my dad's house.

Bunny on the Loose!

Whenever I look in the kid's ears, I say that I am looking for rabbits. Well, here is the rabbit! Harrison's first ear tube fell out today. If you have never seen one, it is tiny! One of Hailey's has come out, and I managed to find it, as well. I have it stuck on the end of a toothpick for illustrative puposes. It resembles a tiny thread spool.

Fun at the Park

This morning we ran a few errands and then met Jo-Lynn and Will at the park. The twins think it is so cool running around with Will, because he is a "Big Kid." After lunch, it didn't take long for my two to crash!! We love the 80 degree temperature, even if it is for just a few days!

Saturday afternoon, I was able to spend a few hours scrapbooking, while Travis took the twins to the park. Below is the sight that I saw when I opened the garage. Travis had taken the twins out of his truck and propped them against the garge wall so they could fininsh their nap. They were sleeping so good in their carseats! Smart daddy!

There's No Business Like Snow Business!!!!

From the looks of several blogs, many of us woke up to a sweet snow on Sunday. It makes me feel like a kid again! We actually still have a little in a pinestraw in the flowerbeds... that's where "the sun don't shine." We had a sweet time discussing the snow phenomenon with the twins. This is actually their second snow- it snowed a good bit on March 7 of last year. Maybe they are a good luck charm!

Flip Flopping Fun!!
Saturday was a very busy day. We went to a Focus on the Family Marriage Conference from 8-3:30 at the church. It was a simulcast that broadcasted to over 400 around North America. Our church, Calvary, was a host church. Some of the speakers included Gary Smalley and Beth Moore. We really enjoyed the entire conference. After that ended, we headed over to a birthday party for a classmate of the twins. It was held at Flip Flop Gymnastics, and they had a blast!! Everything is geared for smaller kids. They walked on the balance beams (with help,) swung on the rings and bars. The ballpit and jumper were also a huge hit. Unfortunately, my camera only captured a few shots before the battery died, but it gives you the jist. After all this fun, we had steak and taters with some friends. As we were driving around on Saturday, Hailey spoke up from the backseat and said, "I've had a fun day!" That speaks for all of us!
