This last week was fun. Ben had his spring break, finally! Although it was 2 weeks after Easter. But it was fun to have him home with just our little family.
Monday and Tuesday we just kind of hung out. we decided to go to the beach one day and fly Olivia's kite. that lasted about 15 minuted until the wind was too strong and broke the string of the kite. but we had fun and olivia loved being at the beach. it was a cold wind too, so we decided to head back to the house and just play outside.
This little guy is just getting so big.
the beach was really pretty that day too.
Wednesday Ben had a track meet in Willits, so we decided to make a trip to Jan and Lou's house. me and the kids hung out for the day and ben went to the track meet. we had dinner, then came home. it was short, but really fun to see them and grandma donna. sorry, no pictures. i am working on that.
Thursday we headed down south. we had a stake temple day on saturday and we decided to just make a weekend of it. we left thursday morning and had good intentions of making it to the childrens museum in san jose, but that didnt work. Olivia decided to pee her pants about 2 hours south, then once we got to Santa Rosa, Braxton woke up and screamed. so with all the stops it took us about 5 hours to get to oakland. but it was still fun. we scrapped the CM, and stayed at the hotel. they had an indoor pool. well worth it. Olivia loved it and it was the first time B had been swimming. again, no pictures, but they loved it.
i was determined to get pics at the zoo.
friday we headed to SF to the zoo. SO FUN!!!
Olivia just loved it. she loved being there and seeing what was going to come next. we made it about 1 hour before braxton had a blow out in his diaper and distroyed his pants. thanks to the spirit for prompting me to pack an extra pair of pants...because i never do. so we changed those suckers and then had lunch.
This one came running when he discovered Olivia had food.
right before the train took off.
Us in the front
These two in the back.
during the ride, you can see B had fun!
near the apes, we all saw how we measured up.
