3rd Grade Father's Mass

The 3rd grade always does a special Father's Mass at school and it took place a few weeks ago.  It's a special mass for the Dads and the Dads sit with their kids in church and then they head over to the cafeteria for donuts and coffee afterwards.  Jack had the welcome at mass and did a great job!  He was very excited to have such a big part at Father's Mass.

Gus and Peyton

Gus has claimed Peyton's bed as his sleeping spot.  He still will not jump into a bed on his own.  When Peyton heads up to bed he will go with her and she has to lift him into bed.  On nights that she goes up to bed without him, he will hang out with Mike, Annie, and I until we go to bed.  Once we go to bed, Gus will go into Peyton's room and just sit at her bed and stare at her sleeping until I go in and lift him in bed......such a big ol BABY!!!

An afternoon and evening with he Riggios

The boys had lots of baseball practice so Staci asked if the girls and I wanted to come over for a bit.  The girls had a little tea party outside in the nice weather.  Once the boys got finished with all their practices we ended up staying a while and ordering pizza and enjoying a nice concert by the girls.....the wrote some wonderful songs and performed them for us.  :)

Great Wolf Lodge, to finish off Spring Break

The last two days of Spring Break we headed to Great Wolf Lodge in Kansas City.  Chris had a conference to attend in KC, so Mom and I decided to take the kids for some indoor swimming.  The kids had a great, great time.  They swam their little hearts out both days!!  Not a lot of fighting, either....always an added bonus!

They didn't get to bed super easy, as I had to get a little stern with them.  Mom and I slept in a loft up stairs but it was open so we could hear everything.  The farted and laughed and farted and laughed.....and on and on and on.  It did actually make me chuckle inside, but I finally had to shut them down.  Peyton, being the only girl, held up just fine with all them boys!

It might not have been palm trees, sun, and sand......but I don't think they cared.  They had a great time!!

Mom had a bout of vertigo the day before we she looked like this most of the car ride.....

Like I said, our balcony didn't overlook palm trees, but a car parking lot worked out just fine....

  Our chairs were conveniently by the lazy river (where Maddie spent most of her time) and the bar...perfect!

 A bed and a box of Cheeze-It's.....heaven!

A few dance videos were taken as well.....

This big tub of dessert only took them 3 minutes to devour!

 On your marks.....

Butterly House

Grandma Jeanne took the kids to the Butterfly House during spring the looks on their faces, I'm guessing they had fun.  The finished the day off with lunch and then came home.

Doggie Haircuts

Annie and Gus were over due for some haircuts.....we always say goodbye to our cute babies and then when we cone back they are our ugly babies.  HA!!!  We just laugh and wait patiently for their hair to grow back.....the life of a doodle.....
