We usually always go on a trip for Spring Break, but this year due to Micah being so young, we told the kids we would be staying home. Surprisingly though, they really weren't too disappointed. They got to sleep-in and have friends over and we had late movie nights. Then, on Thursday early afternoon we headed down to Huntsville, Alabama to be there for our nephew's baby blessing. We had a great time seeing our friends, the Howes, also while in Huntsville. On Thursday evening, we went with the Howes to Five Guys for dinner, then went and hung out with Kyle and Jessica later and got to meet their baby Porter. Then on Friday, we went bowling, to a pizza buffet, and to a movie with the Howes. We just love that family! They are so much fun and have such great family values.
Friday evening we spent with Kyle and Jessica and their family for dinner and fun. Then Saturday morning Eric and Alex went golfing while the other kids swam at the hotel pool.
Tessa was determined that we needed to find an Easter egg hunt since it was her last year to participate. I searched online and chose one that had hundreds of thousands of eggs and was free. We found the park and it was CRAZY! People were everywhere and nowhere to park and Micah was screaming and wanted to eat. I was starting to feel really stressed. Fortunately, Jesikah saved the day and took Jarem and Tessa to their age group locations and stayed with them while I nursed Micah in the car. Thank heaven for Jesikah! She is a good responsible daughter and I knew she would pay attention to where we parked and make sure Jarem and Tessa were safe and didn't get lost in the crowds. It all worked out, but the hunt ended up being very lame. They had to wait for a long time before they got to go and then it was over in seconds. They each got around 5-10 eggs and inside each egg was maybe one little sticker or plastic ring. Between the two of them they didn't even get one piece of candy. There wasn't one thing they even wanted to keep. It was very disappointing, but oh well.
