"A Homestyle Spring Break"

 What a fun week!  My kids said it was the "Best Spring Break Ever!" So I guess I got an "A"???  :)  I was ramped up this year to have a little something planned everyday and make it a surprise... clues.. sometimes something little...sometimes something awesome...sometimes at home...sometimes going somewhere close! So this is our Spring Break...HOMESTYLE!!  :)  They LOVED every minute!  The week flew and I was sad to see the normal start back.  Usually I am so ready for back to normal...but not this time!  So I guess my kids were "A" students huh?  :)  Ha!  Here is a peek at our fun days of Spring Break!  :)  Happy Spring Everyone!


 The beginning ...clues: sunglasses, socks and a note with a drawn bed on it and initials of their friends. Sunday was sleepover fun, Oz and Trampolines!!!  They went NUTS!!!!  This could not have come at a better time because I woke up with a some little stomach bug that made me sooo nauseas all day and my precious friend took 2 of my kids!!!!  Thank you LISA!!!!  I owe you big time!!!
