Okay long over due, but here is a catch up from our Spring Break. The kids were with my parents the first half of the week, they went to a farm and picked strawberries, they got to play at some parks, have a sleepover with their cousin, and of course just had so much fun!
Thursday, Matt and I took off work and the kids chose to go back to the rodeo, which it was the last few days, so we thought it was a great idea, we only get to enjoy it once a year. To my, and most people's surprise, Katherine signed up to do Mutton Bustin. That is where you ride a sheep until it bucks you off. I explained before hand how it was, but she was brave and wanted to try it. She held on pretty good, but got bucked off and ended up with a good size bruise on her leg. BUT WE ARE SO PROUD OF HER for even wanting to try it!!
And of course going back to the rodeo meant more of the petting zoo carnival games and rides. We stayed all day again there, we had so much fun. Can't wait until next year.
Friday Matt had to work, so the kids and I went down to the beach. The water was too cold to get into, but we had a great day just playing in the sand and enjoying the sunshine and the sound of the ocean.
