How We Spent Our Easter Vacation
I have a love hate relationship with Spring break. I have all of these grand plans to take my kids to do fun things and then I panic about crowds and don't take them anywhere except the gym and the mall. (Like Ashley, it is my life's work to avoid crowds!)
But I did manage to eek out a few pretty good activities:
Sammie's birthday party..cutest invitations from Tiny Prints:
Party at Sorenson House in Draper..it is 60 bucks people! And I would describe it as a poor man's Lion House. It was an incredible party for 60 bones.
Girl's Night Out with Sammie. For her birthday, Sammie wanted to go to dinner at Kneaders and get pedicures. It was hilarious and scary to watch her reading the friend magazine while this man rubbed her dogs. I texted Sam to say "we are in trouble..she has had her first taste of the good life!"
Horseback Riding with Luke. I know..I am the bomb. I bought this on Groupon and it was really fun. We rode horses in Midway. My horse was smaller than Luke's which makes me look like a giganto woman on this little pony but I think he survived:
Luke was obsessed with the horses' bladder and bowel functions. He insisted I take this photo:
It was a fun day for the two of us.
Last but not least, my Mom and I took my kids to the zoo and then she helped me wrestle them at Subway afterwards. My mom is a good woman:
Now it's back to real life.
